First Short Story Acceptance of the year! (And it’s pro-pay!)
My story, GOD is in the Rain, is going to appear in one of Flame Tree Publishing’s new anthologies, Robots & AI! I’m absolutely thrilled! 😀 The story is about a form of nanotechnology that runs rampant across the world, rewriting personalities, and it previously appeared in a Bleak New World by Raven International Publishing. The cover art Flame Tree has designed is absolutely gorgeous, as usual.
Beyond Steampunk is also officially out in ebook and print. It contains my little story ‘Call of the Kinguyakkii’, which is a kind of Inuit based fantasy involving the Northern Lights, along with a number of other splendid tales. The Hidden Menagerie Volumes have also been released this month, one of which contains my dark little historical tale, ‘Spingheeled Jack: The Terror of London’.
And finally, the Vale Royal Writers Group have released their newest anthology, ‘Beneath the Blue Bridge’, which includes 2 of my stories, ‘Endless Nuptials’ and ‘Curiosus Cattus’ (which won the Northwich LitFest Short Story Competition 2017), along with a whole array of incredible poems and shorts. It’s a pleasure to be involved with, and to be sharing the pages with, a group of such talented people.
