It's Been a While, Hasn't It?

Didn't mean to let updates lapse for so long. I've still been hard at work on new stories, and I've finally updated the "My Writing" and "Illustrations" pages to show off the additional work. The most recent stories are:

  • To Whatever's Next - A young woman goes to a boy's funeral, and winds up meeting the deceased.
  • Fire House Boy - A crew of firefighters befriends a teenager, only to find he's been keeping a secret from them.
  • Scarlet Rain* - When blood starts raining from the sky, with a giant alien horror about to crash into the city, Shea rushes out to evacuate with her mother, then is confronted with a life-or-death decision.
  • Necromart* - A couple goes to a spooky supernatural department store, where the skeleton crew prods their anxieties to sell their products.
  • One Night at Dagaron's - A pop-up restaurant on a sleeping kaiju's back... what could go wrong?
  • Disrepair* - Years after civilization's decline, K meets Ruby online, and together they develop a plan to build a robotic avatar so she can tend to K's disabilities remotely.
  • Infiltration Day* - A boarding school student sneaks into a rival school as part of an annual tradition, in hopes of finding the source of a devastating new drug.

(The * means the stories are also in the illustration gallery.)

I've also released a new collection, More Word Associations, which collects...

  • The Fortuna Givers' Festival
  • Inappropriate Content
  • In-Flight Encounter
  • Across the Street From What
  • Mausoleum
  • The Souvenir
  • The Winding Worm of Wind
  • Life's Other Plans
  • As Seen From Above
  • The Wolf Heist
  • The Meadow Launch

And now that they are collected, all eleven of these stories are being updated to only $0.99 each on Amazon. If you only want one or two, you can pick them up for cheap, or if you want the whole thing, it's $4.99 for the collection.

Finally, I'm very proud to share Of Mice and Old Men, a collection of essays, articles, and reflections by my late grandfather, Rufus Morgan. My mother did the bulk of the editing, while I helped assemble the e-book and designed the cover. It's $5.99 for the ebook and $19.99 for the paperback.

Thank you for reading!
