Time keeps on ticking

Time does not seem to be on my side at the moment.  And I apologize because I do not have much of a post today because I am in the midst of traveling across the US.  Though I am having the most amazing time of my life at the moment, my writing is suffering horrible.  I have not been able to abide by Phil Giunta’s time management tips from his guest post.

The launch of Somewhere in the Middle of Eternity went perfectly last Friday night.  And it was so much more than just a perfect night.  It was the most amazing experience of my life.  I cannot even begin to describe how wonderful it was seeing the interest in people’s faces as they picked up the physical copy of our anthology.  Seeing that was breathtaking.   Also, to spend the entire weekend among writer and talking non-stop about writing.  Pure heaven.

Can I also just point out my surprise in how many Sci-fi / Fantasy lovers are closet Horror junkies?  I was half prepared for people to think that I should be committed for my obsession with the macabre, but it was the exact opposite.  People were enamoured with my love for Horror and expressed their own love for the genre.  There was even this gentleman walking around like a Reaper with the name badge of ‘Evil’.  The man is a genius and I hate that I did not have enough time to talk to him more.  His philosophies on the balance of good and evil are extremely insightful.  Some of Evil’s thoughs will appear in a future post based off of a panel discussion in which I participated, the Villain’s Journey

Finally, as an update for Somewhere in the Middle of Eternity, for anyone who has been scouring Amazon, Smashwords, etc. for it… the anthology has unfortunately not yet been posted to any online site for purchase.  Though it officially launched yesterday, apparently a publication takes a few days to appear on online retailers.  The physical books should be available for purchase sometime this week.  I will make another post as soon as that is available.  The electronic copy may be available next week.  So keep tuned in to this blog or my Horror blog for updates.  My sincere apologies to anyone who spent hours on Amazon yesterday, refreshing their page every 5 minutes in a hopeless search to purchase Somewhere in the Middle of Eternity.

The news I have been dying to share…

It is with great pleasure that I announce the launch of the Somewhere in the Middle of Eternity anthology, which will debut at the Shore Leave 36 Science Fiction convention (August 1-3, 2014 in Hunt Valley, MD).   The anthology is the brainchild of a dear author friend of mine, Phil Giunta.  I am deeply honored that he asked that I submit one of my oldest short stories, Parallax, to be a part of the anthology.

Check out this Firebringer Press publication that spans across the genres of science fiction, fantasy, and the paranormal (with a hint of horror).  The anthology contains works from notable authors such as Steven H. Wilson, Phil Giunta, Lance Woods, Stuart Roth, Susanna Reilly, Michael Critzer, and Daniel Patrick Corcoran.  The anthology also features beautifully hand-drawn art work by Michael Riehl.

Be sure to read next Wednesday’s post on my struggles of writing Parallax, the story that changed my life.
