News: April 2014
Things continue to move forward with the publication of my short story, "Hex McGowan and the Cat's Meow." After more than 20 rejections, the story has found a home in the Allusions of Innocence anthology to be published by Solarwyrm Press. And here's what the book's awesome cover looks like:
Last month, we completed our crowd-funding campaign, raising nearly $900 in pre-orders to support the authors and defray publishing costs. For those who missed it, the anthology will be released in a variety of formats at the end of April. We're also getting some great advance praise on Goodreads.
Meanwhile, the cover art is still pending for my debut book, The Horse Thieves and Other Tales of the New West. As I mentioned previously, Dwayne Vance is doing the art. He's kept me appraised of the painting's progress, and it's coming along great. I simply can't wait to share it with the world.
Once the final cover art is in, the publisher should announce a release date for the book, at which time I will shout it from the rooftops.
Until next month, happy reading!
