Happy (Belated) New Year, Everyone. hmr-2016-kindle-cover

With the end of 2016, I happily announce that everything written here last year is now available through Amazon in either paperback or kindle ebook format. While I wasn’t able to get anywhere near the amount of stories written as I’d shot for, I can proudly say that I finished out the year with one extra story and that I’m satisfied with everything that I did produce. As well, while compiling and editing everything for Half-Mad Rantings: 2016, I realized that the 2015 edition had never been converted over into an ebook edition, so I went ahead and did that. The HMR: 2015 ebook can be found here for those that are interested.

Onto the news:

This coming year I won’t be regularly publishing any short stories. I have three longer works already being cooked up and in production, along with the story ideas that didn’t get written from this past year. I’ll be working on those with an eye toward just publishing the lot at the end of 2017 and if I get the chance to publish some shorter stories here throughout the year, I will. I’ve also changed over the stories listed under “Flash Fiction” above to represent a good sample of the work produced here over the last four years (and I may switch that up some point later in the year). So, even if I go silent for a good long time, rest assured that I haven’t thrown in the towel.

Sunna’s Journey is finally in paperback (okay…that’s not totally true: it was in paperback as of the end of May through the Magical Druid, but now it’s also available through my Lulu store)! You can get it here in paperback or here for the Amazon Kindle.

That’s all for now, since this new job is kicking my butt and I need to hit the hay. : P

So, this week’s challenge was to use a random generator to create a sketch of character concept and build a story around that. Of the five that I generated, I picked “a philosophical grave robber is looking to take over a powerful crime syndicate.”

But, as a side note before I get to the fiction, this week is the Wellspring Gathering at the Brushwood Folklore Center in Sherman, NY. I’ll be there (celebrating my 30th birthday tomorrow, by the by) presenting a workshop and likely doing a signing event for Sunna’s Journey with the boy(s) from the Magical Druid.

Now, though, I give you, “Loving Father, Honored Grandfather”:

Because I love Puscifer (anything with Maynard James Keenan, honestly), because I love Queen: a cover off of Puscifer’s forth-coming Donkey Punch the Night EP.
