My Short Story Collection is Out!

My first short story collection, published by Oloris Publishing, is out now in various ebook formats!
You can get it in kindle at Amazon or in various other formats at Oloris' own website. This collections assembles a number of short stories which I am very fond of, including my first real quasi-hit, "Security Question" and the long but fun "Handel's Duelist." I'd buy it if I were you - $6.00 US for hours of reading fun and stimulation. And, if you do buy it, please leave a review or feedback on the Amazon site!

EVERY DAY FICTION IS BACK!

One of my favorite markets to read and submit to is Every Day Fiction, a web zine of daily flash fiction of all genres and types.  In fact, the first story I had "go big" was on EDF, a flash piece called "Security Question."  The feedback they offer on submissions, even rejections, is very valuable, and the editors there are great to work with.  The readers are also engaged, and love to leave comments (good and bad), which is wonderful for a writer.

Sadly, EDF suffered some technical problems in 2015 and was been unable to accept new submissions for a while.

Happily, they just announced they've fixed the problem and are open for business again!  If you write flash fiction, make sure you are submitting to EDF.  Follow them on twitter as well at @EveryDayFiction.

If you like bite-sized reads, bookmark them and check it out every day.  You won't be sorry!

Welcome back, Every Day Fiction!

SALISH SEA - Today's Microfiction

"This is going to be great!" Dylan enthused from the front of the canoe.
"Shush, man! Be quiet," Robert said.
The two friends were on a canoe on the Salish Sea, pursuing the idea they'd hit upon during their weed-filled weekend. They were going to solve the mystery of the solitary human feet that washed up on Vancouver's shore. “Over there!” Dylan pointed.
Robert squinted through the fog. A shimmering circle of light hung over the water, at waist height. “What is it?”
“I have no idea.” The two rowed until the bow was under the hovering circle. The friends stared in awe at the glowing hole in the air. Dylan reached out one hand while Robert looked down at his waterproof pouch, fumbling out his phone.
SHWOOMP – and then a plop.
Robert looked up, startled. Ripples at the side of the canoe showed where something had fallen overboard.
Dylan was gone.
“Dylan?” Robert whispered. He tried louder. “Dylan?!”
He crawled to the front of the canoe and stood. The circle glowed peacefully.
Robert tentatively reached out one hand and touched the circle.
It sprang closed, pulling Robert’s arm and then his whole body into it with a quick sucking SHWOOMP. The circle snapped shut, and Robert’s left foot, still in a sneaker, fell free and dropped into the water to bob for a second before it sank.
