Short Story of the Week for July 2, 2017

Recently I started taking part in several writing prompt challenges to help my own writing out. You may have read one of my 13 Week Streak stories, or something I dreamed up from a prompt at Be Kind Rewrite.

An unexpected benefit of taking part in these challenges has been the number of great stories I’ve read by other writers doing the same thing. Continue reading “Short Story of the Week for July 2, 2017”

Another excerpt from Eager Observer… [Free Short Fiction]

While working on Eager Observer, the third book in my LGBT suspense trilogy (Deviant Behaviors), I accidentally included a writing prompt, so I figured I could excerpt it here for your reading pleasure.

Words and Law [Free Short Fiction]

In the past days, I’ve been thinking a lot about my Deviant Behaviors series as I’m getting myself pumped up to write the third (and maybe final) book, Eager Observer, in the coming months. My goal is to know these characters better by the time I get started, so it was only natural that I start focusing on their lives leading up to the events in the series.

This post is part of a series in which I attempt to write a free short fiction piece for Story a Day every (week)day in May. I’m not posting all of them, only those I think will be great for blog readers. They will all be tagged [Free Short Fiction] for easier browsing.

This post comes from my effort to write a Story a Day every (week)day in May. I’m not posting all of them, only those I think will be great for blog readers. They will all be tagged [Free Short Fiction] for easier browsing. Continue reading “Closed Roads, Open Doors [Free Short Fiction]”

It’s like if Luke Skywalker was a girl…

My newest, Banquet, is finally out!

If you want me to be honest, I’ve been saying it’s like…

If Luke Skywalker had been born a girl and grown up with emotionally distant parents, joined a roving band of space pirates, been betrayed by her leader, then defected, tried to kill him, and was sent to a prison planet to serve out a life sentence.

Only she didn’t make it, because the prison transport crashed, and now she’s on a planet with an equally terrible leader, but this one is running a deadly competition for his own benefit and enjoyment.

And it’s #72 on the Amazon LGBT Science Fiction store right now. Continue reading “It’s like if Luke Skywalker was a girl…”
