AnthologiesSiince it has been so long since I've posted here, I decided to give a long-overdue post.
I've had several of my short stories and a couple of poems published in various anthologies. Most of the tales are brand new, written specifically for the call to submit. Others are from long gone days and have been posted online either on my website or here... or both.
Here's a banner I made highlighting the tomes:
You can, of course, head over to my Amazon page to see them all. I'm extremely honored to have my writings alongside so many other Authors, most probably much better at the craft than I am.
My First NovelAlso, I have published my very first novel!
Hell's Beginning is now available. The fine folks at HellBound Books Publishing have done me a great honor by accepting it and getting it out to the world.
I admit it's not the one I had hopes of being my first novel; it's not even in the same genre I figured my inaugural offering would be. Such is life.
I will offer warnings: In my novel and the anthologies, there will be strong language, scenes full of blood and gore, and quite a few unsavory happenings. If you are easily offended, these are not the stories you wish to read.
It's also available in audio, for which I have some free codes to offer out. The codes are only good for the US and UK Amazon sites. If you're interested, you can go to either my Facebook or Twitter pages and let me know. OR you could send me an email via firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know which Amazon you use.
I had tried to do a promo-type thing asking people to post on my FB Author page if they had read any of my stories and their opinion of it. Unfortunately, I got no response so I'm deciding to just give them out to general requests.
As a side note:My poetry book, Life Through My Eyes: A Collection of Poems is no longer available.
I decided that I needed to do some heavy editing to a lot of the poems published therein, plus the company I went through, Xlibris, set the price way too high. Since not one copy sold in the almost 9 years it's been available, there were no qualms with pulling it, nor with hurrying to get it republished.
Well, gentle Reader, that's all for now. I'll leave you with this thought: If you find things not going the way you wish, just Hold On for one more day.
