Still Worthy

I think it’s been long enough that we can talk about Avengers: Endgame without making anyone mad, but in case you somehow haven’t seen it and want to avoid spoilers, this is your warning to stop reading now. Read More…


We’re in Print!

Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I announced the launch of the ebook version of Monsters: The Crossover Alliance Anthology – Volume 4, and I am happy to tell you that it is now available in paperback for the first time! The anthology contains my first published short story, “The Absolution of Oblivion,” along with nine other stories by eight other authors. You can find it here for $11.99 in print, or here for $3.99 in ebook. I’m super excited to share my story with everyone–and the other stories are pretty great, too! If you aren’t sure if this anthology is right for you, please check out the mission of The Crossover Alliance to see what they’re all about, and if it sounds like something up your alley, or even something you might be able to enjoy for a change of pace, take a look at this book trailer they made to promote the anthology. I hope you all get a chance to check out my story and the stories of these other talented authors. I know I’m looking forward to reading my copy!

Story Update!

Happy Halloween everyone! I’m just writing a quick blurb to let you know that The Crossover Alliance Anthology Vol. 4: Monsters is now available! It features my short story, “The Absolution of Oblivion,” alongside the stories of several other talented writers. I am so excited to be able to share this anthology with you, and I think you’ll find it quite enjoyable if you like to read things that are on the creepy side. Even if that isn’t your usual cup of tea, I still hope you’ll check it out, because you may be surprised by what you find in this new collection. You can find it here in e-book format, and it will be coming in print in the next month or so. Have fun today everyone, and be safe!

Exciting News! I Wrote a Story!

How’s it going everyone? It’s been a little while since I’ve posted, but that’s because I’ve been busy! Not only have I been working as a freelance editor, but I am also a substitute teacher now. To top it all off, I am going to be published! I have been working with the great folks over at The Crossover Alliance, along with several other talented writers, on their fourth short story anthology. My original short story, “The Absolution of Oblivion,” is going to be featured in this collection, alongside 9 other stories, all on the theme of “Monsters.” Fittingly, this collection will be releasing in e-book format next week on Halloween, with print copies following in time for Christmas! I am super excited to read the stories by my fellow authors, and I can’t wait to be able to share my story with you! If you like spooky, creepy, thrilling stories that have Christian themes and real-world content, then this collection is for you! You should also check out the other short story collections and novels published by The Crossover Alliance if this sounds like your cup of tea.

I hope you are all looking forward to this as much as I am! It’s been a great experience to write this story and work with the people at TCA to edit it and get it ready to publish, and it almost seems unreal that in less than a week, people will be able to read my story! I could keep going on, but I think you get the idea–I’m stoked! Rather than rant at you ad nauseam, I’ll sign off now, with the exhortation to check this book out! The other authors are all excellent, and this anthology is sure to be a treat. That’s it for now. Until next time!
