So you think you own everything I’ve released?

13 Mar

Oh no you bloody don’t!

Yes, it’s me, your friend and humble author, sweary Ray!

So back in 2012, I was pretty active in the Goodreads forums and took part in an anthology that was eventually published on Amazon.

It was (and still is) called “A Splendid Salamagundi“.

My contribution was a VERY short story called “No World For Vampires“, which until recently even I didn’t have a copy of in my own archive.

I’ve since corrected this massive oversight.

This book has won the Indie Book Bargains award for best anthology for 2012!

I don’t own a copy of “Salmagundi” but will do once I get all my ducks in a row & get it off Amazon. I’ve since gone on to appear in another anthology from Crimson Cloak Publishing called “Steps In Time” (my story is called “The Waiting Room“) and I’ll be featuring in “Deserts Of Fire” later this year.

That’ll be my first proper paying gig as the two above stories were given for free.

Obviously there’s all my free stuff on Smashwords & Feedbooks. There’s “Survival” (for sale exclusively on Smashwords) and my other pay titles available solely through Amazon.

There’s stuff online too at some of the free flash fic outlets. If you check my Goodreads profile there are a couple of exclusive stories on there as well as things on my blog & my Facebook feed.

Best Anthology

Excellent News!

I didn’t get the chance to announce this when it happened, mostly because of computer issues but I’ve finally made my very first commercial sale!

The extremely nice Douglas Lain has accepted my story “Seeing Double” for his forthcoming war anthology entitled Deserts Of Fire.

No word on when it’ll be released but I’ll update you when I know more.

I can direct you to a couple of my latest appearances. My story “The Waiting Room” is now appearing in the anthology “Steps In Time” from Crimson Cloak. You can buy that on Smashwords (as well as other places!) with all money going to Alzheimers UK. I was okay with not getting paid writing for something that supported Terry Pratchett’s charity.

I also had a story published in Ealaín 11, themed “What If”. That’s called “Wipeout”, it’s an alternate WW2 story I wrote to make people think. It’s available to buy here :- http://www.magzter.com/ZA/MPA-Publishing/Ealain/Art/

It’s not exactly expensive, considering how many stories and poems are inside too.

I’m in a freaking BOOK!

Well folks, my story print debut is finally here!
With all profits going to Alzheimers UK, Crimson Cloak Publishing have released the anthology Steps In Time.

I am proud to be supporting a charity championed by Sir Terry, the book is available both real & electronic at a reasonable price too. I’ll deffo be getting one for my Kindle, just over 2 quid, super cheap!

If you or anyone you know has been effected by this condition, please consider offering your support by buying a copy. Plus there’s some killer stories in there!
