I guess I went a bit overboard preparing for this holiday season. First, I did the Holiday Spectacular. You can sample some of the stories here and here, and if you like what you read, you can still subscribe, and get 35 stories. You won’t get them in 35 days now, since the parade of stories started on Thanksgiving, but you’ll get the bulk daily, […]
I’m particularly fond of June. I entered the world in June many decades ago, and as a result, I feel like it’s my month. I think I’d like the month even without the personal resonance: June contains the longest days of the year (in my hemisphere, at least) and, in the Pacific Northwest, is the beginning of our clearest, most rainfree season. Which means here […]
I’m so excited about this particular Storybundle that I’m a part of. First, I love every writer in it. All of them have appeared in Fiction River, and all of them write great fiction. You’ll find Lisa Silverthorne’s Isabel’s Tears, a novel about a magical inn; Dayle A. Dermatis’ Waking the Witch, a gothic mystery novel with some paranormal elements and a light romance; […]

I’m proud of everything I edit, but I’m particularly proud of this anthology….Both editions are different–not just because there are four extra stories in the Kobo Special Edition, but also because the story order has changed (except for the opening story and the ending story).
Fiction River #2 will be coming out in about a month. I can share both the final cover for the trade paper and the list of names in the volume. John Helfers did a fantastic job editing this issue. It’s got some edgy stories, and powerful stories (which are, sometimes, one and the same). I’m really pleased with our second issue. So subscribe now in order […]
I finished writing a particularly troublesome novel in September. That novel only let me read very dark fiction, nonfiction, or YA novels. (Yes, what I write often dictates what I read.) So I was limited on the first half of the month. As for the second half, I started a lot of books I thought I’d love and didn’t finish them. I also read several […]
