An Absurd Apocalypse Available Now!

Circle City Publishing’s second anthology is now available! This quirky collection features unique perspectives on various scenarios for the end of the world. Scroll down for the link to order this compact, handy guide.

The end of the world has become a romanticized topic thanks to the numerous books, television shows, and movies on the subject. But what about all the times when things don’t go according to plan? Zombies roam the planet. Basic survival necessities become scarce. Behavioral patterns are thrown into chaos. Zombies. The world itself revolts against its oppressors. Survivors are forced to come together, whether they like it or not. And, of course, did we mention zombies?

An Absurd Apocalypse explores all of these ideas, while begging the question – What does happen when the end of the world doesn’t go according to plan? Seven authors contribute their unique ideas to answer that very question. Get ready for some of the unluckiest survivors in uncomfortable conditions.

Worst. Apocalypse. Ever.

Order paperback copies for you and everyone you want in your survival party here.

Ebooks are available here.

Under a Blushing Sky poetry anthology available now

Earlier this year, I saw a call for submissions for poems based on new beginnings. They were to be included in an anthology that would benefit organizations that fight against domestic abuse. The call spoke to me. For several years, I’ve worked directly with domestic batterers, and take my work in serving their victims very seriously.

With that inspiration, I got to work. I whipped up three poems to submit, hoping at least one of them would be considered for inclusion. A couple months ago, I was notified that all three were selected. Continue reading

Work in Progress

Today I’d like to share a little bit about what I’m currently working on. I have some great news, and some other news.

First, the great news: I was recently accepted to contribute to an upcoming short story anthology! This project will be the first time any of my fiction work will be published somewhere other than something I’ve organized, and I’m super pumped about this opportunity. With as long as I’ve been writing, it’s kind of embarrassing to admit that this is the first time I’ll be included in somebody else’s project. Honestly though, I’ve only ever submitted a very few stories for consideration. See, writers are notorious for having rock-bottom self-confidence levels. I very much fit into that mold, so I’m typically not too eager to open the door for that level of critique and rejection. And because every experience until now has led to rejection, it’s only solidified that lack of self-confidence. Now, I wanted to share a little about my backstory, but I don’t want this to turn into a pity party, so let’s keep it moving. Continue reading
