UPDATE – March 27th, 2019: Trade paperback and hardcover copies of Gunsmoke & Dragonfire can now be pre-ordered directly from Aradia Publishing!

Gunsmoke & Dragonfire is finally here! It’s a hearty anthology of 25 fantasy Western stories (which dabbles into other speculative genres, like science fiction, post-apocalyptic, and cattlepunk, too). The book’s also a pretty special release for me, since my little tale’s both the first one in the collection and the story behind the cover art.

Gunsmoke-and-Dragonfire

The tale, Inheritance, is a brief encounter between a gunslinger and an enchanter, brought together by their late fathers’ past dealings. I wrote it after being inspired by the anthology’s title during its call for submissions, and I’m thrilled that Diane Morrison, Gunsmoke & Dragonfire’s awesome editor, was kind enough to include it in the book. You can snag the ebook on Amazon right now, and paperbacks should be available soon!

His Cousin’s Tale

UPDATE – October 26th, 2018: There’s now a paperback anthology of Trembling With Fear’s first year of fiction including His Cousin’s Tale available on Amazon!

Surprise! Two of my stories are out in one day. The first was Strands of Glory, published right here on my site, and can be found below (or in an accompanying email in your inbox, if you’re part of my mailing list crowd). Now, onto the second: His Cousin’s Tale, a barside retelling of an ominous warning in a mysterious fantasy world. This one’s a bit of a love song to the wonderful atmosphere conjured in tabletop roleplaying games like Dungeons & Dragons and Pathfinder. It can be found here, in today’s issue of Trembling With Fear, a weekly publication of dark short fiction on HorrorTree.com.

By the way, more publications of mine are coming, I just don’t quite know when. I’ve signed a few paying contracts for pieces recently, which is tremendously exciting for a fledgling writer, haha. Be on the lookout for more!
