I finally took the time today to clean up my publications page. As I was going through it all, I was a bit shocked to see just how much I have done over the past few years.
And that’s only half of it. Maybe I don’t give myself enough credit.
Looking back, here are some of my favorite stories over the years.
This was the culmination of my journey with the character Storm Hamilton. I still have a desire to go back and write his novel someday–I just don’t know when I will ever find the time.
Why I like it: Best opening line of “She wanted to see where the books came from.”
Both of these stories got picked up by Bewildering Stories when I was still finding my stride as a published author. That gave me the confidence to keep going. Sad note: I still can’t spell “sorceror” correctly…
Why I like them: Distantly related stories in a fun setting which I eventually plan to close out with a third entry.
Another gem that came towards the end of my “Storm Hamilton” period, as the historians will surely call it.
Why I like it: This one made me a card-carrying mystery writer! I was very proud to be able to cross genres.
“Guardians of the Dead” and “The Firekeeper”
Two of the best pieces of fiction I’ve ever published (have a couple more contenders that haven’t be released yet). This is not to mention that I had to pen “The Firekeeper” in just a week after the publisher told me I had to make up the minimum word count in order to make it into the book.
Why I like them: I always wanted to write my cats into a story… Plus, the paperback is beautiful.
Thanks for dropping by. I hope you have the chance to read one of these stories.
