If you were looking for another way to support my work without supporting huge publishers, I have posted my stories on Simily! Not all of them are available but I’m slowly adding them.
This doesn’t mean I’ll be removing my stories from other platforms. I know there are people who don’t want to or can’t use Amazon or other big retailers for various reasons. It’s a subscription type site so there are plenty of other authors to see as well! Click here to check it out!
The first part of “Dahlia” is all done and ready for purchase! Click here or the picture above. Here’s the quick blurb:
Dahlia has a peaceful life working for a recycling company and coming home to her loving wife. But when that peace is shattered, a new terrible world is opened up, a dark past is revealed, and a dangerous quest begins.
I’m super excited to put this one out there. I hope you enjoy it!
After publishing a bunch of new stories, it was high time I updated my website. If you want a one stop shop for all of my work, this is the place to go. I can’t believe how many I’d missed but it’s all there now; including the forthcoming “Dahlia: Part One.” Feel free to check it out!
It’s been a while since I’ve done an update but I have been working. I haven’t published since Djinn 2 and Fruit of the Dead 2, but I have been hard at work re-writing and expanding a short story I wrote in college called “Dahlia.” Instead of a couple-page drabble, I’m going to turn it into either a full novel or a multi-part series. I have to see how the writing goes.
As you can see from the picture, I’m 7k deep and the story is progressing nicely. I hesitate to give a timeline because that totally depends on if I hit a roadblock or have a particularly productive streak of days. I do already have a cover for it but I’ll hold off on posting it until the story is close to being published. I’ll probably have to tweak the design a bit once more of the story is done.
Fruit of the Dead is a series I started back in 2018 and legitimately went numb on until recently. Yes, I should have a publishing schedule but I honestly had no clue where to go next at the time. But, I’ve been doing a lot of brainstorming and prompt mining and my general output has been increasing. So, the second episode is in the absolute last stage of editing and will be up later this week!
As I make the rounds on the Internet and wade through all the author newsletters I signed up for, I come across a decent amount of giveaways. Most of them don’t amount to much but this time I scored this set from a giveaway on Hank Quense’s site! It’s not as if I am running out of things to read (with only 11 MB of space left on my kindle…) but this is a pretty sweet score. Hopefully, they will help me take my self-publishing to another level!
As a self-published author, I like to get in on certain things. A friend/co-worker of mine pointed me to this survey over at Taleist about the state of self-publishing today. I’ve done my part and filled it out (with my quite pathetic sales numbers) and I encourage all my self-pub buddies out there to join in. ^_^
