Charmers is my first professionally published story (I should really add that to my author bio), which I am very excited about, even now.
In My Defense Release and Author’s Note
This is the story that received an honorable mention in Elegant Literature's "World Builders" issue several months ago, and after a lengthy internal debate, I decided to post it directly to IGC Publishing instead of seeking out other platforms for it.
Charmers is Published!
My submission to the March Elegant Literature contest "Gambler's Grief" was accepted for publication and is available to read now.
Dragon’s Hoard Release and Author’s Note
It takes a certain arrogance to be an author, an arrogance to believe that you have stories worth telling, stories that other people should want to read and enjoy, and, perhaps more importantly, an arrogance to keep believing that through what is inevitably a lengthy process of submission and rejection before publication.
Executioner Release and Author’s Note
Because of the Gilgamesh inspiration, I decided to attempt to write the story in the same style as the Epic of Gilgamesh, and though I do not know for certain, I suspect that is where I lost my readers.
