SKOAL! Short Story Acceptance!
My short story Whispers of the Goddess has been accepted by Rogue Blades Entertainment for inclusion in their anthology Roar of the Crowd. Each story had to have a lot of action, be based off a historical event or game and have at least a little bit of a fantasy present.
I was originally going to have a tale based around the ball games of central America but that story got too big for the antho so I had to come up with something else fast. My personal gut is to write what moves you--so I threw together a tale of the Crusades in 1204 as well as a bit of esoterica (that's esoterica) as in obscure references to to the Grail saga's and inspiration with the siege of Constantinople
as the backdrop.
The antho ought to be out around September, so its exciting to think about how many books I could be in this year, my own novel (released in one month) and several anthologies. I'll be posting when this one in particular is available. It's just the beginning of some great collections this year.
