Market News: The Cutpurse From Mulberry Bend now published in The Best of Penny Dread Tales

Pleased to announce that 'The Cutpurse From Mulberry Bend' is now published in The Best of Penny Dread Tales, by Wordfire Press. This is a rather sad, Weird Western Steampunk tale, originally publishing in Penny Dread Tales: Volume III: In Darkness Clockwork Shine (back in March 2013). I have been fortunate to contribute to all 4 volumes of Penny Dread Tales, so it was interesting to see which of the 4 tales I wrote was considered the best (and chuffed to be picked at all).

It has just been formally released, and is available in all good online stores, in ebook and print formats – here's just one, at Amazon.

Market News: “Crazy Mike McCloud” published in Railroad!: Celebration Station

Happy to contribute to Celebration Station this year, particularly its worthy cause. My weird western, 'Crazy Mike McCloud' is a little different for me – while I have written weird westerns before, they were usually well ensconced in the steampunk genre as well – not so this short story. It even has a bit of romance in it.

Enjoy and please contribute to the American Cancer Society, via the site.

Market News: short story, Crazy Mike McCloud to be published in Railroad! Celebration Station 2014

Very pleased to work with Tonia Brown and her long-lived Railroad! serial/series. Since last year she has an interlude and looks to put artistic work out in her blog site for each of 31 days. I had a 3 part serial novelette last year, and this year she has accepted my Weird Western piece, Crazy Mike McCloud, which is a bit of a fairytale put on its head. Say no more. It will be published soon, so stay tuned!

Extremely pleased to have my weird western/steampunk novelette, published in Tonia Brown's Railroad! blog – a site that is used to publish her serialized steampunk series. She wanted to celebrate two years' effort, and my piece was accepted as a 3-parter in days 8 to 10 of February.
