Hey all, sorry about the lack of updates. Just a quick note to let you know of TWO brand new stories of mine that have come out in the last few months.
First, my story “Northern Delights” came out in ROAR 8 earlier this year. The theme of ROAR 8 is Paradise, and my story is about an unhappy Chihuahua cop who accidentally ends up in the Iditarod dog sled race in Alaska and ends up finding his own personal paradise. So far it is only available in Paperback thru Furplanet or in eBook thru Bad Dog Books
Paradise can be the stark natural beauty of our own world; it can be the connections we have with the people we love; it can be a moment in time. Paradise can be a place we’re seeking or a place that we didn’t realize we already had until it started to slip away. It can have a dark side. Even shining science-fiction utopias can come with a price.
Read this book and take a journey through eighteen different visions of paradise—beginning with the personal and natural, traveling through the societal and technological, and all the way out to the supernal and divine. A great book can heal you when you’re hurting, give you an escape that you desperately need, or even rekindle a lost spark of hope.
Let this book be a small piece of paradise for you.

Second, my story “The Dragon of Volcano Island” came out in Arcana: A Tarot Anthology. This anthology features 22 short stories, one illustrating each of the 22 major arcana of the tarot deck. Each story features a custom tarot card illustration. “The Dragon of Volcano Island” is about a young Riastel from the Dragonsbane Saga, as he tries to get his first hoard. It is available only in Paperback, either directly from Thurston Howl Publications or on Amazon.
“The first card is your past,” the vixen said, turning over a tattered card. She spoke as she traced the stroke of lightning along the top. “The tower. Difficult times, sudden change. An upheaval in your life? A new revelation?” The darkness of the room stifled your voice; you could only nod. “The hanged man,” she murmured as she turned over the second card. “Being true to yourself, A resolution of difficulties. This is your present, the work you have to do right now.” “The third card,” a smile traced her features, “is your future…” Included in this anthology are twenty-two works of furry fiction by authors within the fandom, including Kyell Gold, Mary Lowd, Chris Williams, and many others. Come with us and divine the meaning of all things from within Arcana.
