From the Ashes

After much waiting, my first short story of 2020 has been published! This post-apocalyptic anthology includes my story, “Sailing Vessel Wanderlust: The Delivery.” It also includes 15 other authors.

Sailing Vessel Wanderlust: The Delivery

Adele Reif remembered a time before things changed. In the year 2020, the Yellowstone Super-volcano blew its top, covering most of the United States with feet of hash. In moments, the world changed as weather patters changed and the globe was sent into a decade of cooling.

Fifteen years later, at the age of twenty-six, she runs a crew on the Sailing Vessel
Wanderlust, hunting around the Caribbean looking for artifacts of the old world and fending off pirates. The last job seemed to be almost more than she could handle. Almost.

So if this is something that seems interesting to you. Or you are new to science fiction as a genre, take a look. From the Ashes. You will not be disappointed.

What will you do when the world goes belly up?

Will you enjoy the glorious post-apocalypse – will you gnash your teeth and wail?

Don’t worry, you don’t have to figure it out. We’ve got you covered! Dive right in with 15 great stories where our 16 authors show how things could play out.

Late night blurb: Progress as a writer

So the novel that I am pushing to get published was written eight years ago. It has been edited a half dozen times. It is about a group of friends and strangers and there experiences of what happens when technology fails to a solar storm.

I have written another novel that I wrote for the latest NaNoWriMo. I posted a small sample of it in an earlier blog post. I printed it out and I am now reading through the story. I am on page 73 of 264. This book is ten times better than the rag that I wrote before.

They are both disaster stories.

They are both about surviving the end of the world as they know it.

This story gives me hope. Hope that I am actually getting better and not just speaking out my ass in these blog posts and on facebook. I read the novel, and while there was and is some plot holes, weak dialogue and over all spelling errors that need to be filled and fixed. The story itself is not bad. It is interesting. I am excited.

Until next time.
