I’m delving into the world of H.P.Lovecraft for my next story, with plans to submit
it to an upcoming anthology. Watch out for those tentacles...
After some furious editing, my short story, Dark Assassin, has been submitted to
Rogue Blades Entertainment for their upcoming anthology Clash of Steel: Assassins.
It’s a tale of Cade, who was first introduced in Night of the Meld, and takes place
in the world of Mortlock and Dalacroy. Now it’s time to wait with bated breath...
The publication date for the Sha’Daa: Last Callanthology, featuring my story Deathstalk,
is set for November 15, 2010. I’m really looking forward to this one. Reserve a copy
comixPress adjusted their outrageous international shipping & handling charges to
something far more reasonable. Now perhaps The Marsh God will sell better overseas.
What’s New -July 2010
Rogue Blades Entertainment has a new anthology on the horizon. It’s the second in
the Clash of Steelseries, titled Clash of Steel: Assassins. Submission guidelines
are on the previous link. Editor Jason Waltz wants to read the first 500 words of
a story before deciding to see the rest. Nice idea, as you are forced to grab his
attention from the start. My 500 word story submission, Dark Assassin, was given
the go ahead.
Flashing Swords has risen from the ashes and is inviting submissions. The first issue
is apparently slated as an annual. I’ve submitted a Dalacroy story, Double Standard,
so we’ll see what happens.
What’s New - June 2010
Jason Waltz of Rogue Blades Entertainment invites authors to enter the first annual
RBE competition anthology. The theme is Discovery, with inspiration courtesy of cover
art by V Shane (right). Jason is looking for heroic fiction, in any genre, with a
word count from 3000 - 9000. The competition is both a writing challenge and fundraiser,
with a $10 entry fee. The contest runs from June 1 to September 1, 2010.
I’m amazed at how many hits my review of Solomon Kane continues to receive. Perhaps
I should concentrate on movie reviews... Anyway, it’s a shame some distributor in
North America hasn’t picked up this gem yet.
