I’ve had a great time working with Trese Brothers Games thus far, and sat down with them (so to speak – I was sitting down) for a brief interview. You can find the link to that here, complete with links to our 2 eBooks. The full transcript of the interview is also included below. Enjoy! Continue reading
I wanted to put up something a little different after all the recent sci-fi, so I went over to Reddit’s writing prompt subreddit and found this little doozy:
“A hitchhiker murderer picks up a murderous hitchhiker.”
One thing I love about these flash fiction prompts is how quickly they can flow out of you. I put this together in very little time, but with a strong and simple concept like the one above there wasn’t a lot of agonizing over where to go next. It’s a lot of fun, and if you want to do your own there’s no reason it has to be as long as this one.
Here’s my entry – and here’s a link to the Reddit thread so you can upvote my comment!
Enjoy! Continue reading
I’m proud to announce that the second eBook in my series for Trese Brothers Games will be out soon (meaning March) and available across Amazon, Google Books, and iBooks!
The book is titled Subjective Vengeance, and takes place in the rich Star Traders universe. Check out the game, it’s a blast. There’s also a free version, but if you take as many Google surveys as I do, you probably have a few bucks knocking around in your account. Well worth it.
Keep your eyes open for the release, with updates available here over the next couple of weeks. I’ll post the official synopsis once Trese Brothers has it up on their site!
For this post, I’m sharing a submission I sent in for a contest last year, related to a Warhammer 40,000 game produced by Games Workshop and Behaviour Interactive. It wasn’t accepted, which is fine (and the bald patches from tearing my hair out have almost filled in, so that’s great) but I figure it’s something that might appeal to my readers, whether you know the game or not.

What’s this? Another post, so soon?
One thing that I’m going for now is a bit more consistency in my posts. It might not be the same length of a post I might do for Huffington Post or a flash fiction contest. With all of my current projects and responsibilities, I don’t really have enough time left over for that. But if you’re interested in little injections of what’s floating around my head every fortnight or so, I think I can maintain that at a modest level of quality.
This is flash fiction, written for a challenge a couple of months ago. The prompt was ‘Jealousy.’ Stuff like this could be more frequent additions to this blog, feel free to leave challenges or prompts in the comments and I’ll see what I can whip up for another update!
I’ll take one more opportunity to let you know about my eBook release of No Legacy Between The Stars with Trese Brothers Games. Check out the interview on their blog along with links to the various markets where the story is for sale.
Read on for the story!
I’ve been making some new friends out here. The other day someone asked if I’d be interested in joining a writing circle; after leaving behind the old Writer’s Bloc in Toronto I was happy to give it a try. It’ll be neat to have some people to bounce ideas off of, work on copy with. I can’t wait to get started.
My first assignment is to write something not more than 48 lines containing the following words:
I’m happy to announce that my short story “Skipping Stones” will be featured in the next issue of Palladium Books’ The Rifter!
It’s great to be working with Palladium again, especially so since I can continue a series following the adventures of Happy Ending Solutions. They’re a lot of fun to write. Palladium has such a rich playground of a universe already, and I’m happy to be contributing to it.
Check out the pre-order on their website here. Order now or check it out at your local tabletop or comic store! (If it smells nerdy, they probably have it.)
Also, an article written by me is now live on the Huffington Post under the title “There’s No Shame in Shaming An Asshole.” I’ll be reposting it to this blog over the weekend, but for now you can enjoy it here.
More updates and work are coming, stay tuned!
