    “For Whom the Gnome Tolls” Cover Reveal

    by Oh, another cover for another ebook. What a surprise! “For Whom the Gnome Tolls” is a comedic fantasy story a little shy of 6,000 words long and currently on my calendar to publish as an ebook on May 18th. Why I’ve picked Victoria Day to release something is an interesting question, and one I wish I had an answer to. I wasn’t thinking about it being Victoria Day when I picked the date. I wanted a couple of weeks separation from “Natural Order” on one side and the pending (because I want something a little different for a cover) Undead collection on the other. Comedic is the word I’ve…

    Natural Order Cover Reveal

    by 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.

If you like it enough to have a copy of your very own, or if you want to know how it ends sooner than the ending will post, well, here’s your chance. I’ve posted links for both Amazon.ca and Amazon.com below. I have some covers to build, but I’m hoping to manage a short story (maybe two), a Novelette, and a Novel in the next couple of weeks. In and…

    Thorvald’s Wyrd Redux

    by All work and no play… no, that one doesn’t work. My grandmother used to say that a change is as good as a rest. I use this every so often when people accuse me of never relaxing. I also note that they weren’t around while I spend March break doing very little. But I do need variety to keep my energy levels up and keep going. Too much variety makes me a little scattered, but there are a lot of things I want to do with my life and I need to show some progress here and there. So, Thorvald’s Wyrd Redux. For a couple of years now, I’ve…
