What am I working on?
I'm working on a rewrite of a thriller novella as requested by a publisher. I'm also working on the first draft of a frontier story featuring zombies and a novella that I seem to have been working on for years based on "The Fall of the House of Usher." When I'm not working on the stories above, I'm writing chapters for a novel with Lyn Perry about werewolves among the Pilgrims.

The anthology King David and the Spiders from Mars is now available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle. This is a fabulous collection of seven tales drawing their inspiration from Old Testament stories. I'm stoked that my offering, "Good King David," stands among them.

My ghost story novelette Highway 24 is on sale through the month of February for only 99 cents. Grab a copy while you can at the MuseItUp Store or other retailers such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or Kobo.
From the back cover (can an ebook have a back cover?):
On a lonely country highway, a young travelling salesman runs down a teenage girl. It was an accident. Why she was wandering around on a highway in a pink, formal dress, he can’t imagine. There’s no doubt she’s dead. Fear takes over and he flees the scene, absently taking one of her shoes with him. An old memory, something familiar about that shoe, struggles to surface. As he speeds away from the accident, he thinks his nightmare can’t get any worse, until he sees a pair of green eyes in his rear-view mirror. The shoe and those eyes lead him to a small town where he meets an all too knowing preacher and a sheriff obsessed with the girl’s tragic demise. As Paul digs deeper into the mystery of the girl and her shoe, he comes face-to-face with a dark secret from his father’s past.

|Detail from The Bayeux Tapestry (circa 1080).|
The dwarves cleaved to their king as the goblin horde closed from all sides.
The dwarf cleaved the goblin's helm with a mighty swing of his ax.

|Coming and going of the Pony Express (1900)|
|by Frederick Remington|
So how am I doing with those goals? I finally finished rewriting my novelette "For the Love of God Cut My Head Off" and sent it off to an editor. Expect a Kindle release of this story in the near future. Received a rewrite request for my thriller novelette "A Daughter For a Daughter." Finished a segment in one of my Avenir Eclectia story arcs and sent that off. Several stories are still out on submissions. For February, I absolutely must finish "The Masque" and write one of those flintpunk stories.
