AWARD ELIGIBILITY POST

So it’s that time of the year again, when the voting periods open for all kinds of spiffy SF/F awards. Now, let’s be honest, I’m fairly new to this field as a pro (but certainly not as a fan) so anything I write is going to be up against works by authors with a list of publication credits as long as their arm (or longer, in some cases).

In the era of internet self-promotion, it’s nearly impossible for a writer to sit back and wait for discovery. In fact, I’d wager discoverability is just as hard for new and upcoming authors as it is for a brand-new indie app in the Apple store.

I have two pieces published for you to consider. Both were released in May 2018 as inaugural pieces by indie publisher imprint “Strange Fuse”.

WISHES FOLDED INTO FANCY PAPER,
a novelette length piece of science fiction (a little more “social sci-fi” than my usual pew-pew with robots stuff).

THE GOPHERS OF HIGH CHARITY
a novella-length fantasy about the adventure that sets two street urchins on the path to becoming classic adventurers. This one’s the first in a planned series, so if you like it, keep your eye out for more in 2019.

IT’S LAUNCH DAY!

It’s LAUNCH DAY Ladies and Gentlemen!

Check it out, Strange Fuse just launched today as an indie/small press publishing imprint from Fuse Literary, and I’ve got two stories out today!

When planetary refugee Della folds a curse into a “Fancy” chain of paper tokens resembling flowers from their home world, she has no idea how her thirst for revenge will bloom into something unexpected.

 

Next up is my fantasy novella “The Gophers of High Charity”.  Inspired by old-school fantasy series like Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser and Jhereg.

There’s a print version on the way as well with both of these stories bundled into a single book.

Last (because I love to mash up tech and lit) I’ve built an entertaining little AR app that let’s you get a new look as the covers for both of these stories.  The App is free and is currently available on Android (iOS to follow shortly).  Grab it and check it out!  I’ll be adding more covers for Ramen Sandwich’s line of RPG books as time goes on.
