The Gift Of Giving

This year for Christmas I will be giving a few of my loved ones gift certificates to Musa Publishing. They have nine fiction departments, with a few more specialty categories as well, ranging from young adult to mystery to science fiction to romance, so they are certain to have something for every reader. With such good stories and great artwork, both the giver and receiver should well be pleased.

Also, I urge everyone to be sure to check out the speculative fiction category and give "Day Dreamer" a glance. Feel free to contact me and let me know what you think of the story.

The Absent Willow Review is closing

The Absent Willow Review, a speculative fiction e-zine, is closing in a few days, so anyone interested in reading my story, "Yesterdays Tomorrows," ought to visit before it's too late. There's plenty of other science fiction, fantasy, and horror pieces to check out as well.

It's too bad the magazine is closing. It was a humble "unedited, unpaid" venue for authors and artists to share their work, but it still published some good stories along with some really intriguing artwork over the past three years. Let's all visit and give it a good farewell.
Here's a link to the site -- http://absentwillowreview.com/

Tomorrow's Dream

My novella, "Day Dreamer," was released today by Urania Speculative Fiction, an imprint of Musa Publishing.
For every story I write I also write a companion poem. In honour of "Day Dreamer" being published, I would like to share "Tomorrow's Dream."


Tomorrow’s Dream

To dream every night of what shall be the next day…

When would you ever wish to fall asleep?
And how would you ever know whether you were awake?

Twilight shines across evening skies      
Even while morning shadows arise        
Memories and expectations turn one into another
Spinning and spiraling and becoming each other

And through each night
To dream of awakening and then of falling asleep
O, the oneiric lucidity
Of every nightmare and daydream

Twilight shines across morning skies
Even while evening shadows horize
Expectations and memories turn into each other
Spiraling and spinning and becoming one another

Lost  in revery
So every night seems
Making each day
A recurring dream.

You don’t know if you’re awake or asleep
You only know you are dreaming

To dream the day away
Awake, Asleep
Every dream, Every day
Every day, Every dream

Musa Publishing launches today. Follow the link below and check out their selection. With nine "muses" to choose from, there is something for everyone to be inspired.

Musa is just beginning, but this publisher is going to be a forerunner in the business for years to come. They have a sound business plan, a forward approach to publishing in both electronic and print media, a real understanding of the markets, and perhaps most importantly, its directors are kind, courteous, wonderful people who treat their authors and readers with respect and grace, creating an environment which feels like family. They have poured themselves into this endeavour, and so shall we all be rewarded for their hard work with some fantastic stories and art, not to mention friendships and memories as Musa continues to inspire.

So, this is only the beginning. Wondrous reading everyone.
