The sky was darkened by steel-grey clouds, running toward the horizon's setting sun, as if to extinguish its light on this scene of urban justice. The scaffold, hastily erected seemed eerily at peace in this riotous sky, blood red near the edges like a vein opening and flowing into an nearby gutter. Angry flashes of lightning as a storm, riding a hot desert wind blew in from the west, drying the mouths of the onlookers,…Continue

My short story "Two Souls: A Love Story" is up this week in Hogglepot Journal.
You can read it at: http://hogglepot.com/index.php
The story is part fantasy, part romance, and part ghost story. Check it out.
P.S. To my knowledge, the journal is actively seeking submissions.
Below is a scene which was originally going to be the opening scene of my "Medjay" story, but I've decided to scrap it for reasons explained at the bottom of this post. Hopefully people will still enjoy it...
A cool nocturnal wind howled across the city of Waset in southern Kemet. Most of the people had retired to their mudbrick homes for the night, but their defenders, the warriors known as Medjay, still stirred. They either patrolled the torch-lit streets or guarded…Continue
The twin swords of the Goddess formed a lethal duet, singing a song of blood and slaughter. The shrieks of dying Skags was the chorus and the Goddess provided the deadly direction in this violent symphony of combat. Skag infantry had erected ladders along the embankment to facilitate their ascent up the sloping earthwork. Norlunder arrows exacted a steep toll among the foot soldiers. But the latter’s numbers compensated and before long Skags and humans were locked in struggle atop the…Continue

There's a reason for that. You have neither the knowledge or control over the means of creating the actual books, DVD's, protecting the online…Continue

I pray all is well. Normally I post for the attribute challenge at www.rsquaredcomicz.com, but WordPress is currently experiencing technical difficulties. Today's attribute is God and Jesus as elevators...
One of things I've been noticing more and more about my Christian walk is that things always work out for the better when I put God at the forefront. Sometimes,…

Darkness settled like a dusty quilt across the land. Save for a watch detail patrolling the newly erected embankment along the perimeter, the rest of the village was quiescent. Until shouting upset the stillness, yanking Tyler out of his slumber. Sleep would wait. Tyler emerged from the small dwelling the Goddess had provided for him, making a beeline toward the commotion.
A crowd of Norlunders gathered in front of a modest barn shaped structure that was the temple of…Continue

I saw this post mentioned on Twitter and decided to check it out. It's a discussion between bestselling thriller novelist Barry Eisler and Joe Konrath. The beginning came about from Eisler's rejection of a half a million dollar book deal in order to self-publish. It's rather lengthy, but you can read it here:
An unprepossessing four-by-four rumbles down a dirt road, encrusted with the debris of too many miles, past too many farms and would not likely be considered the harbinger of the end of the world. Its driver, an older gentleman, hard in his way, like the soil he has worked for five decades, strong and silent, offers up only a tiny groan as he steps from the vehicle after arriving…Continue

“Thank you, Tyler Worthington.”
Tyler glanced up to see the statuesque blond Goddess standing over him. He rose. “No need to thank me, since I had no choice but to defend myself.”
“Yes, but you also defended others and you saved lives. You are truly a great warrior.”
Tyler stared at the woman who called herself Goddess, and had to wonder if there was an inkling of truth to the claim. She looked as fresh as if she had just stepped…Continue

They dragged the prisoner deep into the village and tossed him at the Goddess’ feet like a sack of tubers. The mob shouted and screamed and spat in animalistic displays of wild release. Voices calling for the prisoner’s death were augmented by calls urging the Goddess to give her divine sanction. A foot lashed out from the mob, striking the prisoner in the side. The prisoner gasped in pain and contracted into a fetal ball.
Someone else approached the prisoner with a…Continue
