Wishful Thinking is the first of a trilogy of books to be released over the winter months with this volume focusing on horror, and the subsequent volumes covering bizzaro and erotica. My story, Everything's Annoying, is about an irritable gentleman, much like myself, who wishes for nothing more than peace and quiet, with as few people around as possible. I'm proud of the story as it isn't out and out horror, but has more of a Tales of the Unexpected feel which is something I haven't really tried before. Not only that but I'm doubly proud since the story was selected as the editors choice for the volume which means a nice goody bag will be heading my way in the not too distant future.
As for The Dark Carnival I've reported on that previously but it is now live on Smashwords for free, and hopefully Amazon will follow suit any day now. Please, don't buy it from there until the price comes down as this is supposed to be a freebie but, if you would rather get it from there than Smashwords, please feel free to click the "I've seen a cheaper price elsewhere" button and then wait for the price to drop.
Counting these two that's four anthologies which now feature my work from three different publishers. I've another submission currently on a short list and a couple more to write so hopefully there will be more publications to come. With work and family as it is the intensity of novel writing is something I genuinely don't feel I can fit in, but the short format provides me with a nice way to keep writing without that all-consuming madness of trying to write anything longer.
