And the Myths Untold: Faery Blog Tour Gets Rolling

“Myths Untold: Faery” launched this morning, including my new story “Through the Veil“. And along with it, the blog tour is in full swing. 🙂 Over at Melanie Marshall’s Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words, all four authors are talking about how we write: How do you write – are you a plotter or pantser, or both? Skye Hegyes: I’m a bit of both. With short stories and some of the novellas I’ve worked on, I can take a vague idea and run with it, writing it without planning too much. That said, novels are another story. I recently tried pantsing a … Read more

It’s Double Release Day!

Myths Untold: Faery

When it rains, it pours. Today I have not just one but two new stories releasing. The first is my short story – Repetition – coming out in the MCB Quarterly from Mischief Corner Books: Davis plays with people’s lives, changing timelines like other men change clothes. But he always keeps his own timeline out of it by remembering his mantra: You’re not God. Never mess with your own past. Remember, you’re not God. But this time things are different – his new client is a man from Davis’s own past who wants to go back into the closet. Things … Read more

The Lusty Adventures of Theseus

Hi there! My name’s Arthur Griffin, and I’m super-stoked to visit Scott’s little corner of the web as part of my blog tour promoting my new book, The Lusty Adventures of Theseus, which I describe as a gay mythological erotic comic adventure fantasy. You know, simple. People ask me what drove me to write Lusty Adventures. Well, the truth is there were several impetuses… impeti… impe… There were several reasons I wanted to write it. The first is I’m a big old nerd, and Greek mythology has always been near and dear to my heart. I’ve always loved all the … Read more

Review: King of the Storm, by BA Brock

I just finished reading an Advance Reading Copy of King of the Storm, the first novel from author BA Brock, which came out on Tuesday. Let me say first that I have known BA for about two years now – he is the reviewer for the Queer Sci Fi site, and I was privileged to read a bit of the novel in beta, when it was posted to our critique group. But reading pieces and reading the whole thing are two entirely different experiences. I now know how everything fits together! The book takes place in Greece, but just to … Read more

QSF Releases Our First Book

Discovery

Wow – lots of news this week – today is also the launch date for “Discovery: QSF’s Second Annual Flash Fiction Contest”. This is a great little book – and I say little because none of the hundred-plus stories included are more that 300 words long. The five contest winners are included, but there are many other great stories in here, running the gamut from sci fi to fantasy to paranormal to horror. It’s also a fundraiser for QSF… after the great folks at Mischief Corner Books take a small cut to pay expenses, the rest goes to fund the … Read more

Hey all, My latest published story just came in the mail. Originally titled “Fly”, “Tight” is a little short I wrote years ago, and then pulled out and updated last year.
