I know it has been awhile, but I’m still out here lurking in the real world (in a safe, socially distanced way this year).
I wanted to pop back in to let you know that my new illustrated short story collection Room for One More is now available on Amazon! This is the third volume in the 3-4-1 series that me, my wife, and our friends have been working on for the past few years. (You can find the first one, 3-4-1: Three Tales Told Nine Ways, here on Amazon, and the second one, Paper & Kindling, here on Amazon.)
“Inspired by a wide range of myth, folklore, and urban legend, as well as each other, these tales follow the winding roads through the Underworld out onto the empty highways of the American West, with a number of intriguing stops along the way.”From the Room for One More blurb
I’m really proud and excited of my stories in this collection, and the stories and poems by the other authors are truly spectacular. Each one is enhanced by the accompanying illustration our talented artists provided.
If that’s not enough to tip you over the edge, we are ALSO donating the first month of our sales (Oct 15 – Nov 15) to The Trevor Project! All of the writers of this collection identify as LGBTQIA+, and many of our works in this collection deal with transformation and discovering yourself and fighting to be who you are. Given the these themes and the state of the world, we wanted to give back to our community and help support LGBTQIA+ youth who may be struggling on the journey of self-discovery with little or no support from friends or family.
I know many people are trying to avoid buying from Amazon, and many people cannot afford “fun” expenses right now, but I hope if you have the ability you will buy a copy of this collection to experience the wonderful stories/poems and artwork and to support a great charity. If you aren’t able to make a purchase, we’d also appreciate a signal boost!
As a bonus, here’s an excerpt from one of my stories, The Hag’s Hand, in the collection. Enjoy!
“And what’s a hag?” she asked. The hag’s laughter dissipated, quick as a summer storm. She nodded, as if pleased, and then turned her gaze back toward the sun. All the humor had drained from her face.
“A woman what survived being a witch.”Excerpt from The Hag’s Hand
