The Man Who Killed a Whale

The wonderful Fix It Broken have put up an interview they conducted with me last week
Thanks to Greg for the cool questions and general good times!

The short story Red Ice (formerly Last of the Kjett) now has a home on Smashwords after the awful experience earlier this year with a certain crooked publisher. Back to it's original title and available for less than a dollar! (#onlyjustmind)

I think all outstanding matters are now resolved, onwards into new waters!

A big and very sincere thank-you to anyone who has read any of my stories this year - that should be me done on here until 2011 :)

December is for Lovers

Hey all - Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, whatever you do and wherever you are I hope you are with loved ones this festive season
Been a while but a few updates to post!
First - check out this new literary blog, follow it and enjoy the daily updates from creator Abe -


He was kind enough to review my very short story Terminal Sunday and followed this up with a very fun interview last week - thanks Abe!

Next up - another new site you should bookmark and pay attention to - an online literary magazine named Fix It Broken
Issue 1 just went up yesterday and showcases 10 diverse and wonderful pieces of fiction. Every issue FIB is doing something very cool and different - picking one story to be turned into a t-shirt which is then sold in a limited quantity from the site. I was delighted to find out my story 'The Comfort of Dead Whales' was the winner for issue 1 and is now a wearable piece of fashionable fiction !
Thanks to all the cool cats at FIB for making me extremely giddy with that, and such a sweet idea, I look forward to future issues!

The newest edition of 52 Stitches has been released - flash horror stories, originally published online at a weekly rate throughout 2010 - and I have one in there. All proceeds go to the Jamie Eyberg fund - you may remember, writer Jamie and his wife were killed in a horrible freak accident earlier this year leaving behind 2 young children. Jamie actually has a piece in this book, one of the last things he wrote.

Finally, a link to one of the best collections I've read in a while - Terminal Earth! - stories from the end of the world. A lot of my favourite new writers are present in this one and it really is a great read from start to finish - recommended very highly!
