Three bits of free stuff, anyway.
- Fantasy: The first story I sold was to a free online magazine doing two stories a month. I wrote it, then found out about the magazine. The story of how I wrote it is that I had a vague idea while getting ready for bed, thought about it in bed, then couldn't get to sleep because the story was trying to write itself in my head. I had to get up and type it out so that Muse would stop hitting me with a foam cricket bat. I finished it the next day. After sending it off, I got the acceptance email while sitting on a train on my way to an airport while sleep-deprived early in the morning. I can't remember where we were going at the time. It's called Keeping It In the Family, and can still be read online courtesy of Swords and Sorcery Magazine. Contains gratuitous assassinations.
- Vampires: A while ago, I started writing a vampire story that turned out to be too tongue-in-cheek for its intended market. Some years later, I pulled it out and finished it for a friend. Read the full story, and the full story of, When The Vampires Came.
- Weird? Horror? Fantasy? A small piece of flash fiction about men of the world and strange hosts in remote castles discovered on the close of night. Also about sex and odd little coincidences. Read A brief interlude in the foothills.
