New Publication! Story in Twisted50 vol 2

Hiya,

Y’all’ll recall that Twisted50 published a story of mine last year and that I went to the launch party and met one of my own characters (!) Well they’ve just announced that they’ll publish my story, “The Art is Absent”, in Twisted50 vol 2. I also see that Losing the Plot guests Madeleine Swann and Steve Pool will have stories in this book too, so I’m sure the resulting anthology will be awesome.

I sent them 2 stories and they picked the good one 🙂 This also ends my acceptance drought of like… 4, 5 months? Though I’ve had more than enough accepted or published or whatever this year, by many cool outlets that I respect, so I’ll shut the fuck up. Once again the turnaround of this story, from writing to acceptance, was a full year.

I very much enjoyed Twisted50 volume 1, and I have a lot of respect for what Create50 does overall to promote new and emerging writers, with Twisted50, Impact50 and Singularity50.

I hope you’ll consider submitting to a Create50 project. Purchasing Twisted50 vol 1, a highly enjoyable book, would be a great way to know what Create50 are looking for.

Cheers 🙂

Deadman’s Tome: Campfire Tales books arrived!

The latest arrival to the Oslo office is this pair of Deadman’s Tome: Campfire Tales books!

Full disclosure: I bought 5 of the blue ones because they have my story in it 😉 It’s called “Cool Kids” and it’s about a dude who attends a wedding and reminisces about the petty vengeances he’s taken on people in the past—and he’s desperate to talk to the bride…

Thanks to Marc Molino for providing the cover art, major thanks to Jesse Dedman of Deadman’s Tome for getting this pair of books into the world!

Here’s where you can buy your own!

Hope your week is off to a great start—I know mine is!
