Update: Contests & Publishing

Well, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything, but that doesn’t mean I’ve been resting on my laurels! A few months back, I had made an unofficial agreement to delay adding any new posts to this site; that time is up, and I have been tinkering with a few ideas for future posts. But more importantly, I have begun to look into the process of getting my fiction published.

Details are going to be a bit vague here—as not everything is quite nailed down—but the tentative plan is that, by the fall, I should have my short story “The Singing in the Forest” published as an eBook and available on the four main eBookstores: Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook, Apple iBookstore, and Kobo.

I’ve been testing out the eBook on various devices, and I must say it looks great. There’s even a book club section with suggested discussion questions at the end.

In other news, I have also submitted a short story for consideration into a contest, the results of which will be made known around the same time as “The Singing in the Forest’s” eBook release. Whatever the outcome, the plan is to then begin the process of getting the contest story ready for publication.

It’s been a busy few months, and it’s going to continue to be so for the rest of summer, but hopefully I’ll be able to start posting again, soon.

Thank you for your patience and continued interest!
