The Big Announcement: Razors and Rust

I’ve been waiting to spill the beans for a few weeks now, and since I’m sick with a cold and can’t touch my new baby I figured no time like the present. Am I right?


(It’s playing in your head now, isn’t it?)

I’m pleased as punch to announce on June 9th, my story “Razors and Rust,” will be available for your downloading pleasure at

Yay! (And a big drum splash).

Over the years I’ve been blessed to receive publication in several small press magazines—periodicals with fantastic editors and a small, but loyal readership. But this time I’m heading out into the big, wide world that is electronic distribution, and I couldn’t be more excited.

“Razors and Rust,” is the story of an monstrously wealthy aristocrat who attempts to cheat death. I will be releasing the full description and back-jacket synopsis next week, but for now let me point you all in the direction of Pyramid Powerand let your nimble minds play. I think you’ll be pleased with the results.

Over the coming weeks I’ll be dolling out sneak peaks, contests, and shenanigans in preparation for the big release, so I hope you’ll all continue to visit and participate where you can. And in the meantime—because it’s Monday and who doesn’t like answering polls on Monday?—please take a moment to visit my Facebook page and answer the poll on which “9 Things” post you’d like to see next. Currently, the top three are: “9 Things to Avoid When Outlining,” “9 Ways to Create a Unique Antagonist,” and “9 Times it’s OK to Ignore Reader’s Desires.”

I’d really like to know what you think. And if you don’t feel like having Zukerberg know your answer, feel free to leave your vote in the comments below. It’s all going the same place. 🙂
