It’s been a beautiful summer. As it comes to an end, it feels like 2021 is about to start for real. I hope it’ll be a year filled with creativity.
I haven’t been very productive on the haiku front lately, but I did receive some lovely news: one of my haiku was chosen to be included in the 2020 Red Moon Anthology Jar of Rain. I’m very honoured to have been selected.
My flash fiction collection on Channillo The Moon is Cryingis now complete. I had a lot of fun working on this. Hopefully I’ll get to raise some money for the SPCA through it.
The cover for the first Witch Doctors Inc novella, The Awakening, has been animated by Morgan Wright. Morgan’s animations are fantastic, and it’s always a pleasure to work with her. I can’t share videos under my current WordPress plan, but here’s a link to the animation on my Twitter timeline if you’d like to see it: https://twitter.com/CavesAuthor/status/1359699430945943553
I’m currently working on the second installment of the Witch Doctors Inc series, Orb of Ariadne. Like the first, it will be free to read on Smashwords, Apple Books, Kobo, Barnes and Noble, and various other retailers. I’m excited to share the cover with everyone, but I’m forcing myself to make more progress on the story first. You’ll hear more about this soon 🙂
Happy 2021 everyone – I hope it proves to be a smashing success 🙂
“The lake is NOT haunted,” I told the tourists. Some looked nervous, despite the parade of multicoloured boats. We needed tourism, and I’ve never stopped working to keep this town running. My death was inconsequential.
She never got over it. The despair dug into her bones. There was no funeral to cry at, no graveside to mourn by. She carried it silently, from the moment she ordered the massacre. She was the only one who mourned the death of the person she used to be.
Her fascination for the sky was endless. She’d spent most of her youth in forests, around ponds or waterfalls. She was a faerie of the earth. It was only when her wings withered, lying brown and limp at her sides, that her heart filled with blue.
I’ve got a few weeks off work so I’ll have more time to write. I’m excited to produce new work and catch up with everyone in the writing world. I haven’t had nearly as much time to do this as I’d like , what with my job at the hospital eating up so much of my energy.
I’ll be making more haiku submissions (I feel like I’ve been falling back on this lately). I’ll also be working on my Channillo for Charity series The Moon is Crying. I’m going to be posting content more frequently for this.
I also have a couple of other ideas up my sleeve, including a new Alexander Harding Spirit detective mystery 🙂
The Moon is Crying is my new microfiction series on Channillo. This week’s installment “Sad Face the Clown” is now out.
I think I forgot to mention in my last post that all proceeds from this series are going to charity. I’ve chosen SPCA International to donate to. So if you have a Channillo subscription and fancy some microfiction with a touch of magic, you can save a fluff too. Or even a few fluffs…
Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I posted a proper update. As a COVID-19 response worker, these past few months have been hectic. But…I have news. I’m running a new microfiction series on Channillo called The Moon is Crying.
The Moon is Crying is a collection of contemplative microfiction with a touch of magic. Stories are bite-sized and will be released weekly. While I’d like to include some previously published pieces, the plan is for most of the pieces to be new and exclusive to Channillo.
Channillo is a subscription-based service, sort of like Netflix for literature. Members pay a fixed monthly fee to subscribe to as many series as they want. They’re also running a 30-day free trial. https://channillo.com/
