Staring at the Moon…

I spent some time last night staring up at an unusually large moon, with and without binoculars. Every time I look up into the night sky, I’m just as fascinated as I was the first time I saw it.
Tycho was prominent and bright; I could clearly see the lighter, raised rim of the crater contrasted against the darker interior. The rays of ejected material radiating outward from the crater painted long, white arms across the surface of the satellite.
My imagination ran wild, much as it did the night I was inspired to write the short story, Tycho Wept. Check it out for FREE, and join me in renewed wonder of our nearest celestial neighbor…

What Do YOU Think???

What would life inside of a gas giant look like?

A recent story entitled Ringshine, originally featured in Vol. 03 No. 03 of Nebula Rift Magazine, explored one of the many unexpected consequences of blindly treading beyond our own world. Subsequent conversations and interactions have led me to ask the question: What would life inside of a gas giant look like?
Would life on a planet like Saturn look like this:

RiftSmall

Or would beings utilize gas-filled bladders to float through the dense clouds, employing chemosynthesis for sustenance? A combination of both? Could advanced life evolve on Saturn, and if so, could humans exist in the solar system with it?

What do YOU think?

Check out the story here:

“Ringshine”

“As a avid science fiction reader I had to check this book out. Ringshine is a short story which had me hooked by the middle and then carried me right through to the end.”

Ringshine

Life has been seeded throughout the solar system and has evolved time and again only to be repeatedly snuffed out, sometimes by nature itself, sometimes by unnatural forces. Is it our destiny to explore the universe, or will the act of exploration lead to life’s demise… again?

Just a Few Days Left…

Just a few days left to get the latest edition of Under the Bed Magazine. Five new terrifying tales of horror featuring:

Peeping Tom

     He braced his stomach against the back of the chair, looped the belt around her neck and pulled it up as he leaned backwards, using the weight of his own body to assist his efforts. The poor woman’s face contorted, and within seconds her eyes began to physically bulge. Her left eye was suddenly tinted pink, and her tongue sprang from her grimacing mouth. Spasms rocked her body as her fingers knotted into fists then extended and, after a painfully long moment, fell limp.

Twice Upon A Time Blog Tour: An Interview with Bobbie Palmer

CONTRARY to the title of this anthology, working with such a talented cast of writers is an opportunity that usually comes once in a lifetime. From best-selling to greenhorn, independent or traditionally-published, the authors in this anthology span all ranges in addition to spanning the globe—from England to Australia and all over the United States. I’ve had the privilege of getting to know each and every one of them, and they have become a part of my extended family. I’ve even caught a glimpse of a secret side of them that only another writer…editor…is privy to witness through their words.

Through this series of posts, I plan on introducing you to my new family through a mini-interview of each. You may not get a chance to see their secret side, but you’ll get a sneak-peek into their minds, their passions and inspirations, and what made them the writers they are today.

..The Mini Interview..

1. At what age did you start writing?

I wrote my first story in 6th grade for a class assignment and I haven’t been able to stop.

2. Which book introduced you to Speculative Fiction?

Harry Potter; it opened me up to a world I never knew existed.

3. Do you have an all-time favorite book? What about it makes it your favorite?

The Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs. When I first read it, I fell in love with the writing style and I felt like I connected to Mercy.

4. Which author and/or book inspired you to start writing?

Stephen King. His determination to have his work out there is inspiring.

5. What would you say is the most important lesson all writers should learn?

Writers need to rember to have fun. Its too easy to get caught up in edits and promoting. Both are important, but you need to have fun writing so you keep doing it. Don’t let the pressure get to you.

6. Of the entire publishing process, which would you say is the most difficult aspect to endure?

Edits. I like getting lost in the story. When you edit you can’t, you need to check grammar and spelling, make sure the story flows.

7. If applicable, did you have a favorite character (to write) from your story? If so, what sets them apart the others?

Scarlette Gunn. She’s the main character in a series I’ve been working on for a few years. She is who I want to be, but won’t become. She stands up for herself and won’t let anyone beat her down.

8. On what projects are you currently working?

My latest paranormal romance, Emily’s Captive, was just released on May 30, 2015.

..About the Author..
