Story Accepted to Hogglepot!
My story, "Etched in Lament" was accepted to Hogglepot, a weekly fantasy journal. The story is a dark fantasy tale filled with elements of horror, romance, and even a gargoyle! It will be published from the 10th of July to the 16th.
Acceptance to The Horror Zine!
Six of my poems were just accepted to The Horror Zine for their October issue. I think this work represents a wider variety of my poetry and consists of some older poems, some rather new ones, and even a couple pieces from my memoir series.
Here's a link to two more of my poems now up at Indigo Rising Magazine: 'A Voice Beneath' and 'Earthface.' Click HERE to read them now! I hope you like!
Acceptance to Twisted Dreams!
3 of my poems were just accepted to Twisted Dreams Magazine for their upcoming October/Halloween Issue! The three works to be included come from my WIP series, Nightmare Dreamer: Poetry Inspired by the Artwork of Zdzislaw Beksinski, which is shaping up to be a very interesting chapbook if I do say so myself. I look forward to sharing these pieces as a sampling of this growing work in progress.
Somehow I completely missed the fact that 2 of my poems (Dark River and Tree of Pearl) were published at Calliope Nerve two weeks ago! Here's a link to both poems.
Chivalry is Dead (including my story "Lay to Rest" plus 12 other Zombie Tales by Excellent Authors) is now available!
From the Product Description:
This is the companion anthology to Hell Hath No Fury... Inside, you will find an undead baker's dozen that will remind you of how dark and desolate the minds of men can truly be. Vowing not to be upstaged by the dark musings of their female cohorts, the men offer up a visceral, gore-drenched collection that strives to prove...Chivalry Is Dead!

Acceptance to Every Day Poets
Well after 2 rewrite requests, my poem 'Down in Lake of Egypt' was accepted to Every Day Poets. Thank you to the editor's there for all the feedback and patience. In the end, the resulting piece has been stripped of the extraneous elements and has been boiled down to its essential components. I also learned a great deal from this experience about rewrites and revision. I think its a good piece and I look forward to you being able to read the final product.
