Happiness is … having another book with your story come out


This is a totally bad ass cover, and one that is well known throughout the sci-fi world

This is a totally bad ass cover, and one that is well known throughout the sci-fi world

April 4th, 2013, I received an email saying that my story The Enlightened Soldier,  had been accepted for publication by Fringeworks. Just over two years later, this book has come out! Have to say that it’s great to pop on to Amazon, do a search for my name, and have another book pop up!

This story really does have a twist in it, and is set in the same universe as my story Death’s Messengers in Grimm and Grimmer: Volume Two: 2, expanding on it greatly.

I also liked the fact that all of the stories had to be about strong women, with women as the POV. Naturally, I went with a female soldier, and an enlightened one at that.

I hope you’ll pop along and get a copy, as it would be great to see some reviews (yes, I’m vain), and maybe even have it get listed as an Amazon Best Seller!
