Wizard of Ends, Grumpy Old Gods and On the Premises

I’ve been a busy bee since my last blog post, my life filled with endless hours of work, 20,000 things to do and our national power company’s constant load shedding (in which, lately, they often cut the electricity three times a day for 2.5 hours each time)… and not so much writing. The good news is that I have recently been able to start writing again – something I have been aching to do for a very long time.

Wizard of Ends fans will be glad to know that I completed Book 3, Mountains of Eclador. That said, it might still be a while before it will be ready to publish. Although the last word is written, there is still a lot of work to be done in perfecting it, and I would also like to revamp the series covers before Book 3 is published.

In other news, earlier this year I submitted a short story to the first Grumpy Old Gods anthology and was over the moon when it was accepted. My story, Out of Luck, along with 12 other short stories, will be included in the anthology, which you can get on pre-order at Amazon. If you enjoy the anthology, please don’t forget to leave a review on the Amazon book page – I would very much appreciate it!

Another thing I am super-chuffed about is being asked to be one of the judges blind-reading short story competition entries for On the Premises, an online fiction magazine started in 2006 by Tarl Kudrick and Bethany Granger. The magazine offers a diverse range of stories in all genres. If you don’t already read it, you’re missing out! You can read the latest issue here – for free. Incidentally, all are welcome to enter the competitions – if your story makes the top ten, but did not win a prize, you can get a free critique as a consolation prize if you want one (other stories can also be critiqued on request for a fee of US$15), and there are monetary prizes for the winners. To keep up to date on the latest contests, visit the magazine’s contest page.
