I Actually Wrote Something! “Why Do You Do This?”

Cosmic horror comes to a soul-destroying workplace not at all meant to resemble certain IT contracting activities.

Yes, over the past year, I’ve mostly been grinding away at a giant hamster wheel of novel-writing. However, I’m also pleased to announce that one of my horror-adjacent stories, “Why Do You Do This?” will be appearing in the anthology of fantasy and surrealism A Land Without Mirrors. Put out by the fine people at Fluky Fiction, A Land Without Mirrors features 16 tales of the weird and fantastic.

My own story, “Why Do You Do This?” is very much experimental in tone, and was a chance for me to try out not only some new narrative techniques, but also to express myself in a much more personal and raw manner. I hope you’ll give it and the other stories in the collection a try.

A Land Without Mirrors is currently available as an e-book from Amazon. If you want to say, hopefully good, things about it, here’s the Goodreads page.

Enjoy!


A New Kind of Warrior: Now Complete on Wattpad

Granted, I wrote “A New Kind of Warrior” a while ago, but I’m still proud of myself for editing and posting it onto Wattpad for everyone to read in between all the stuff going on with my novel and blog. Just goes to show you the value of getting things written in advance. 😃  Here’s my blurb for this fantasy story with a twist:

Lindal has been chosen by her god to be the lone girl among her people’s caste of divine warriors, giving her the power to sense and shape the natural world around her. Now fate leaves the last chance of salvation for her people in her hands. She must protect a sacred fragment of their god against a ruthless invader. But as the land dies around her and her power wanes, her only hope lies in seeking help from an unexpected and dangerous ally.
