The Black Bag – In a contest with witches a little help is always welcome.
This short story originally appeared on the now defunct webzine MindFlights in 2010. It was reprinted in the OtherSheep Fall 2011 issue and subsequently won best short story at the SCW Conference in 2012. It is still available in back-issue from OtherSheep. Currently, I’m re-heating this story with an updated edit in preparation for further reprint submissions.
The Gift of Desecrator the Exiled – An odd visitor brings a gift that solves a problem – or does it?
I wrote this story last year (2013) and have submitted it to several magazine markets with not success. Though a few people I know like the story it seems to be lacking something. Anyone who wishes to provide feedback as a beta reader please let me know with an email. Otherwise, I’m letting this story ferment for a while.
Howling Bear Cave – With your people in danger a special consultation is necessary
Also written in 2013, this story is still in rough draft.
All Things Forgotten – Choices are hard to make – this one is no different.
This story has been outlined and started but the rough draft remains unfinished since 2012. I think it’s germinating in my muse.
Arbo End – What’s in the trunk?
I wrote this a long time ago. A few editors expressed their interest but never took the plunge. I hope to re-edit and submit to more magazine markets in the future.
Longfingers – A vulnerable mother stands between her infant and a creature of legend.
Another story I wrote long ago. I think it needs to be re-written as a novella.
In the Hand of a Hero – Writing’s hard, try with your other hand.
Written in 2009, I’ve been holding this one back with the idea I might develop this into a sword & sorcery series.
A Shadow’s Chance – Take care of traps unforeseen.
Another story written in 2009 that I may develop into a dark fantasy.
Now and Later, Forever – Love is never simple – or is it?
This is an idea from earlier this year (2014) that I am still developing as an outline.
Her Dry Bones – She wants to leave but he’s waiting for a change
Written this year, this story is still in rough draft.
For No Reason – Some people don’t deserve help but it’s his only way out of a curse.
I’m editing this story now for submission to magazine markets soon – check back for news about this story!
Shadow of the Beast – He’ll go after the monster but he won’t survive even if he succeeds.
Another rough draft from this year (I’ve been busy with these).
That’s all my current short fiction WIPs. I’ll update these as I prepare them for submission.
