A little bit of news...

Hi all! Today's been a bit of a rough day, so I thought I'd do a bit more of an admin/news post for the things I'm up to or involved with.

Red Earth to White Light

For those of you looking for something slightly different this Halloween, I'm sharing the ghost story I wrote for Twisted Earths, the Untethered Realms Anthology, last year. 


You can find it on Wattpad. I'll be posting two more updates, once a week. 

Speaking of the Untethered Realms Anthology...


Mayhem in the Air

TwistedEarthsAnthology_MayhemintheAir (5)

Coming Halloween. Tales from Untethered Realms. Ten stories of horror, the fantastic, the future, and macabre, all embracing the element of air.

From Amazon bestselling and popular science fiction and fantasy authors comes Mayhem in the Air, a supernatural anthology of ten thrilling tales. Meet hot robots, hungry winds and the goddess of chaos. Explore alien planets, purgatorial realms, and a shocking place where people bury the living with their dead. Mayhem in the Air is the second, long-awaited story collection from the dynamic and inventive Untethered Realms group.

“A Strange Penitence” by Catherine Stine – A young artist pays a supernatural price when a drawing trip to North Carolina turns deadly.

“Mass Transit” by Graeme Ing – For Emily, mind over matter is not just a saying, but the gateway to her career among the largest starships built by man.

“A Tangled Weave” by River Fairchild – A TimePulse rips through the Great Tapestry of Life, leaving Earth’s history in a jumble, and Death and Chronos in a race to save the world yet again.

“Corrosive” by M. Pax – In a world ruined by pollutants, Bex sets off to establish a new homestead with her dreamy robotic man. Already farming her plot of land is another dreamy man with radical ideas, presenting new challenges as corrosive as the air.

“Saving Scrooge: A Short Story Prequel to the Saving Marley Series” by Gwen Gardner – Marley is sent from purgatory to save the soul of his old friend. Can he save his own in the bargain?

“The Silent Wind” by Christine Rains – A team of specialists must dispel a mysterious storm on an alien planet to prepare it for colonization. One by one the crew disappears until only a seasoned soldier remains. How can he battle a hungry wind that makes no noise?

“Paper Lanterns” by Cherie Reich: In order to keep his promise to his daughter, Mayor Alfred Merry must betray the woman he loves.

“Chaos. Hope. Love.” by Misha Gerrick – Although Eris is the goddess of chaos, her life has fallen into a nice and comfortable routine. Until someone from her past shows up in her bookstore.

“Cardinal Sin” by Julie Flanders: Beleaguered hospital workers bury the living with the dead in the midst of a tuberculosis epidemic and a seething spirit vows vengeance from the skies.

“The Ark” by Cathrina Constantine -Plagued with memory flashes of fiery explosions and running for her life, Fallon emerges from a drugged stupor to find herself in an airborne Ark, and the earth below is a drowning wasteland.

I always say the right fascinating characters have a great deal to do with the success of a story. I am amazed by all the passion, mystery and suspense packed into these thrillers.

I hope your day has improved. Sometimes you just have to live through some crap to get to the good stuff. I wish that good stuff upon you very soon. Sounds like you are involved in some amazing projects. I've kinda been slacking all around in the writing world, but my day job is awesome and really fun, so it all works out. I really do need to write soon, though...

DMS said...

So many wonderful bits of Halloween and fall fun coming up! Love it! :)

I am busy (or should be busy) writing. Going to try to get my chores done first, but then hopefully I will be write, write, writing the rest of the day. :)

Have a nice weekend-

I'm sorry you had a rough day, but I hope you have a lot of better days soon! And involving yourself in your writing and in books in general is good; sometimes it helps just to escape into another world sometimes, especially if it's a world that you created in your writing.

The anthology sounds terrific. I kinda like the "strength in numbers" approach to publication. I wish y'all much luck with it.

I hope things pick up for you. I'm actually signing up and creating a Wattpad account just to read your story. About time I did so.
