I know I have been remiss in my writing here, but that is only because I have been busy writing... as in new short stories and a new book. Actually the book is a trilogy, with book one tentatively planned for release later this year. Titled Planet Alt-Sete-Nine, the release is scheduled to coincide with the release of Nemesis, the second book in the Astralis Trilogy by my friend and fellow author KJ McPike.
You remember KJ as the author of Xodus, book one in her excellent series. She was featured in this blog on September 21, 2015, titled New Must Read From A New Author. KJ is working hard on book two, Nemesis, and Xodus has met with tremendous acceptance. As a matter of fact, on Saturday, April 30, 2016, KJ will be receiving a First Place Category Award from the very prestigious Paranormal Awards for Supernatural Fiction for Xodus. Congrats KJ!

Meanwhile, besides busy with my own trilogy, Planet Alt-Sete-Nine, I have a number of short stories under my belt already for this year. One I am particularly proud of Rain At The Intersection Of Tomorrow, is a featured story in a forthcoming anthology from Fuzzy Hedgehog Press. Beyond The Hedge will be released July 1, 2016, but you can check it out right now and pre-order from Amazon by clicking this link or the image to the right. Beyond The Hedge will feature my story along with stories from some very talented writers including my dear friend Alissa Berger. You will remember Alissa being featured along with myself in the July 2015 edition of eFiction Magazine with her story Unaccomplished.
Beyond The Hedge has already started quite a buzz as well as receiving a number of per-orders, placing it high in Amazon's rankings, so be sure to get your order in soon.
A couple of final notes. As publication of Planet Alt-Sete-Nine nears I will post a chapter here to whet your appetite. Also, KJ McPike, Alissa Berger and I will be attending Westercon in Portland, Oregon, the weekend of July 1 thru 4. We'll all be at the Fuzzy Hedgehog Press table along with writer and Fuzzy Hedgehog Press publisher Matt Buscemi. I'll write more as the date draws nearer. But mark it down on your calendars, and plan on stopping by and saying hello to some of your favorite authors.
