October Blitz and New Releases

November 8, 2017 at 12:40 am (horror, Links, writing) (, , , , , , )

Sometimes life sucks all the creative energy out of you.  Lately, changes at my workplace have placed additional demands on my time and my mental resources so I’ve found myself with nothing much left to invest in producing or promoting my writing.  I did actively try to complete my usual October submission blitz, but I fell about 10 submissions short.  I will be working to make those up before year’s end, so I still get in my 100 submissions for the year.  I am also currently working on a drawing project and two short stories, but progress has been slim.

I managed to gather up enough initiative for a long needed blog to announce some of my recent releases, but I’m hoping by the time November ends and things slow down a little at work, I’ll get a little more of my mojo back.  I can usually manage family, gardening, jugger and my creative endeavors along with work, and I’d like to get back to that happy balance.  Considering gardening is winding down for the year and jugger is now only once a week, the main trade off is day job versus my artistic side.

Anyway – here are some of my recent releases along with links where you can find them (three are reprints but the fourth is new.)  I’ve still been busy, but just not my usual prolific self.  I’m fortunate to have made it into some pretty impressive publications:

Killing It Softly 2 (Octavia)

Allegory: Volume 32/59 (The Lure)

Year’s Best Body Horror 2017 (Wrigglers)

Gathering Storm Magazine: Year 1, Issue 5 (Foil-Hat Crazy)

I’m keeping my fingers crossed that December will bring a little more sanity and time for writing, but I’m not holding my breath.  I’ll at least try to get back on my weekly blog schedule, including a couple of reviews I need to post.
