New on Goodreads: Veterans of the Future Wars

VFWCoversmAn anthology of military sci-fi that I am in — Veterans of the Future Wars — has just been added to Goodreads at

If you haven’t already seen it, go check it out today. It is being put together by Martinus Publishing.

Here’s what’s cool about the anthology:

It’s military sci-fi about veterans, to honor veterans, and several of these stories were written by actual veterans. Read these tales to share in the adventure, the triumphs and tragedies, and if you like your freedom thank those who have served to protect it. 10% of all profits will be donated to Disabled American Veterans.


A few tiny steps toward publication(s)

Big day yesterday as, within an hour of each other, I got the ARC (that’s advanced reader’s copy) of the Long Hidden speculative fiction anthology that includes a short story of mine AND a request to do an author interview for Veterans of the Future Wars anthology that includes a different short story of mine.

With the ARC, I get to proof my story one more time. With the interview, I get to talk about me.

These are small steps in the publishing process, but add a sense of fun and anticipation.
