My micro “Looney” came out in 50-Word Stories. It’s guaranteed to brighten your day.

Two of my drabbles, “Ferryman” and “Diastanaut”, have been accepted for publication in the Chronos anthology by Shacklebound Books (editor Eric Fomley). I’m looking forward to its publication—it will feature some gorgeous cover art and the work of several fellow writers who are also Twitter friends!

I finished a gruesome yet funny short story that I’m quite proud of, and it’s been unleashed upon some unsuspecting slush readers. Mwahaha! Whenever I submit a newly minted piece, I marvel at how much better it is than anything I could have produced even just a few months ago.

New Sci-Fi Story: Cryobliss

Exoplanet is a new science-fiction magazine and I’m proud to be one of the authors in its first issue, which dropped today (June 21).

Without further ado, here’s my story:

The whole issue is great, and I highly recommend checking it out. You can download the pdf of Issue 1 here or read specific stories on the Issue 1 website. Some of my favorites are Swap.Me, Malfunction, Departure, and Sunrise on Menelaus, but honestly, read the whole thing. It features a variety of topics and styles.

Enjoy!
