Sticking with the cover reveal theme of the past few posts, today I’ve got one for something that hasn’t actually published yet, at least as a solo ebook.
“Natural Order” originally appeared in the 2014 anthology Legends and Lore from Xychler Publishing. Theoretically still available, I haven’t heard anything from the publisher since June 2018, and the publisher’s website hasn’t been updated in even longer, but I’m well outside the original agreement for exclusivity and this is a big enough story to stand on its own.
So, “Natural Order” gets to be its own ebook, and the next one I’m releasing, the final check of the manuscript files is slotted for Sunday. From there, it’s a couple of uploads, and voila!
For reference, it’s a 7200-word story, falling just a little short of novelette length, Contemporary Fantasy, and the cover may give away at least a piece of the myth I’m playing with.
Stay safe and be well, everyone.by
by Have I told you about Legends and Lore lately?
Aside from my having a story in it (“Natural Order”), it’s a great anthology.
Wait, that didn’t come out right. Let’s try again.
It’s a great anthology that happens to have a story of mine in it, “Natural Order”.
Nine fantastic tales inspired by a variety of mythologies and mythological beings, Legends and Lore takes reality as we know it and tweaks things a little, in nine different ways. This isn’t a review, so I’m not going to gush about any particular (or every!) story other than to see it’s a great read. There’s a lot of good storytelling in these pages.
