I’ve taken some time away from my latest draft of Father’s Creed to work on something new with my local writing group. We’ve been helping each other grow as writers for years now and having them with me on this journey has been joyful and incredibly beneficial.
Writing is often a lonely profession and pastime, and many writers prefer it that way, but finding a group of fellow wordsmiths is something I whole-heartedly recommend. Not only have these people become my friends, but they have challenged me to embrace new styles and see my own work through new eyes.
I’m a fan of all of them, and so it is with great delight that I tell you we are publishing a collection of short stories entitled ‘Seven Deadly Pens.’ This multi-genre anthology features tales of mystery, sci-fi adventure, fantastic encounters, and of course, a little murder.
The book should be available within a month’s time and I will certainly have links via this site. In the meantime, here are the titles, taglines, and author information so you can see what’s coming.
