New Story Coming Soon!

IMG_2420 All right, kids, that's a wrap on the first draft of a new short story that will be out soon.

I cannot tell you much about this work yet, as it's all very top secret, hush-hush, and on the QT. I can offer a few nuggets of information though:

  • The story is called REVOLVER
  • REVOLVER is a dark, dystopian sci-fi piece set in the near-future.
  • I wrote this story for inclusion in a forthcoming sci-fi anthology, which is expected to release in early 2015. I don't think I can spill the beans on who all else is included, but rest assured it's a great group of authors and I couldn't be happier to be working with them on this project. This will be a top-notch effort from all of us involved, though, and not just on the story side of things. We've got a terrific cover artist on the hook, and some fine editorial strong-hands helping each of us shine brightly.

Keep an eye out for the real details soon. Once I can release more information, I will. This is a bit of a hard project for me to keep quiet about because I  really, really, really want to tell you everything about all of this. It's very exciting, and I'm beyond thrilled with the way things have been shaping up, and with how well REVOLVER turned out.

Next step is editing, and that's always a doozy. I'll be working on the next draft in conjunction with moving ahead on editing EMERGENCE, so I'll certainly be keeping busy and distracted, which should help keep me from revealing more than I should.

By the way, and without giving away too much more about this project, now might be a good time for you to sign up to my newsletter. I won't spam you, but I will send you updates on new releases. When this anthology comes out, there may even be a few surprises in store for subscribers.
