Tuesday, September 15 will see the release of “Bugged Out Babblings”, a collection of “flash fiction” stories–short titles envisioned between 500 and 1,000 words, with an introduction by yours truly.
I was invited to contribute what feels like years ago now, though it was really only in the spring. Given my tendency to wordiness, keeping a complete story right at the 1,000 word mark was challenging – but I kind of like how it turned out. Hopefully you’ll feel the same, and there are a few other fun tales inside. Check it out here!
As far as departures go, the publisher that handled Places Beyond the Wild has decided to focus on single-author works, so the anthology entry in the Z-Day universe will be temporarily unavailable. Eventually, I’ll be re-releasing it in a new edition, but there are some contractual and technical issues that need to worked out on that end. On the plus side, I’ve invited a few additional authors to make contributions, so the new edition will have new content, as well. If you own digital copies of the current version through Amazon or other outlets, nothing will change there for you. If you’ve got a paper copy, congrats! It’s a collector’s item! Track me down at a con (surely we’ll have those again someday, right?) and I’ll happily sign it for you. Once I have information on the updated release, I’ll be sure to share it, but it will likely be early next year, and then, as you can see in the sidebar, followed by A Place for Peace.
Until then, keep reading and stay safe!
