Cover of Darkness Jan 2012 Available


My short story, "In the Eye of the Beholder" is in the current edition of "Cover of Darkness" from Samsdot publishing. It's the story of a scientist studying alien creatures on their home planet, and discovering that they are not what they first appear.

I'm so looking forward to reading the other stories in the anthology.

I started to write this story for a writing exercise for an online critique group I belonged to at the time, but I couldn't get it to fit into the 400 word limit the exercise required. Instead of fighting the word count, I decided to skip the assignment that week and write the story the way I wanted it to be. This should be a reminder to me that they best way to increase my odds of getting my work published is to actually finish something and start submitting. Finishing is a weak area for me.

So anyway, go out there (or click over there) and get a copy. Then come tell me what you think of it! I don't see the ebook up yet, but will post about that when it shows up.

Yippee!!! I congratulated you on FB, but I totally forgot to congratulate you in person the other day.

Anyway, I can't wait to get a copy! :)
