I regularly submit new work to competitions and the editors of on-line journals and e-zines that I find interesting and potentially accepting of my style of telling a story. While I've enjoyed modest success, I have accumulated a great many of those 'thanks, but not for us' emails from editors!
'Wolf's Eye Magic' was published in the August, 2017 edition of the Canadian online magazine Mystery Weekly. Due to a contractual agreement, I am unable to post this story here until August of 2018.
A new story - 'My Father's Son' - will be published in the UK by Fiction-on-the-Web on February 5th, 2018. The editor is Charlie Fish. Charlie has published several of my other stories and if you are a writer of short fiction, I highly recommend his online magazine.
My published work is spread out across the internet. It takes a lot of work on your part to find it all.So I collected it all in one place. It's my equivalent of 'one stop shopping' for you!
Now you can browse to your heart's content, enjoying what you choose to read and making a note of a story or two to read at a later time. I hope you will tell your friends about my stories and invite them to drop by at this blogspot.com location.
I ask that you respect that I've retained legal rights to each of my stories and therefore they cannot be copied and posted elsewhere. But ask me if you want to do that with one of my stories. I'm open to considering what you're proposing to do with it. But ask please; don't 'borrow' it from my page!
I will be adding to this blog as each new accepted and published piece of my writing becomes available. Some editors have exclusive rights that extend well beyond the published date; others let me publish it on my own as soon as the story first appears in print. All of this to say that you will need to check back with my story blog from time to time to read new material.
An easier way to ensure you are current is to become an official Follower of the blog. That way, you will receive a notice in your Inbox whenever something new is posted here. There's a convenient 'Follow' button on the top right of the page. It asks for your email address so you can receive update notices in your Inbox.
I welcome your comments and suggestions. I carefully consider each comment and often the ideas find their way into future stories. Use the 'comment' bar at the end of each story to register your comments with me.
Thank you for stopping by and reading some of my stories.
