For those that have been waiting, my next title is available now. Marketing doesn't start until Cyber Monday, but I figured I'd give a heads-up post here today. Sunburnt Farmlands of the Midwest contains 223 pages broken down into 23 separate stories, ranging from 2 and a half pages at the shortest to 30 at the longest. To get more information on the title and to find out where you can buy, check out the post for the title. (Protip: Amazon has a HOLIDAY30 promo code you can use for 30% off for a limited time.) Special thanks to my family and everyone who helped me out in some way. I wouldn't be a mediocre "artist" with a slave labor job making sub-poverty wages if it wasn't for you. Or, well, you know what I mean.
Down in the Dirt Magazine has released an anthology of the second half of 2015 titled The Intersection, which includes my piece, Nimble, that was published in the hello goodbye goodbye hello issue (October.) This anthology is 420 pages long and includes over 150 stories and poems from almost as many authors. Support the indie writing scene and potentially even find a new favorite author. You can view the listing here and pick up a copy over here.
In the wake of so many people being senselessly killed tonight, I think it's a good idea to reach out to a loved one and get reacquainted with who we are as human beings. Connect with someone, share a meal or a drink or just good conversation and help spread the word of these people who lost their lives for no reason. If we let things like this tear into the fabric of humanity any more than it already has, we're only going to be worse off in the future. Love each other.
These kinds of things are seldom talked about in the news, and I'd like to take a second and say thank you to this man for not backing down due to societal expectations and actually reporting this. (more…)
I've added a section to the website detailing different professional writing services for which I am available for hire, either on single projects or on retainer. I'm capable of everything from ghostwriting blog posts to outlining and writing up 10-15 page case studies. If you're in need of any services, start here, and feel free to contact me for a quote. http://wintercearig.com/services/
