Big Bear Accepted at T-Zero

“Big Bear” is a flash story I wrote based on my time working as a bartender in little village called Milo.ย  I worked as a bartender there for a few years (three I think) and in that time I gathered enough material to create boat-loads of incredible characters.

Right now I’m pretty stoked about the story because it’s been accepted for publication at T-Zero which is a paying market *cheers* Rumor is the story will be in the May issue — I’ll keep you updated for sure.

Published @ SHINE

My Fatherhood drabble has been published at SHINE.ย  You can check it out here –> Fatherhood . ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m very pleased with this drabble, it’s been published at two places so far and I think it’s pretty well done.ย  It confuses me, however, that flash stories I’ve done since then that I think are superior to it keep getting rejected LOL Perhaps it’s the subject matter — things being left unsaid is something everyone can relate to, but maybe not everyone ‘gets’ stupid gangsters or visits from beyond the grave.

Food for thought I suppose, but I’d be lying if I said it would be likely to affect what I wrote in the future ๐Ÿ™‚

A Merry Christmas

My flash story, A Merry Christmas, has been published at Flash Flooding — yay. You can read the story by following that link, and if you do, please rate it — but do it honestly, I don’t want any gratuitous 5s.

Aside from that and the usual process of writing and submitting nothing else is new that’s related to my writing. I continue to work on the Haven novel-in-stories and I’m editing the ‘On a Mission’ novella to take out about 3 chapters and make it a tighter read. Exciting, no? ๐Ÿ˜‰


My drabble ‘Fatherhood’ was published at A Long Story Short on the 7th.ย  If you want to read it all you need to do is follow the link below — it’s all there, complete with my ‘Evil prevails’ email signature LOLย  I wrote ‘Fatherhood’ in response to a challenge on NaNoLJers for father’s day, and, as I’m sure you can imagine, I had my stepfather, Clark, in mind when I did.
