New Serial (Mosaic) Fiction Line!

Hey Peoples,

So, the fantastic people over at Geek Girl on the Street were awesome enough to invite me to start up a line of serial fiction. Originally, we discussed developing a Dickensian (I've always wanted to use that word; check!) style sci-fi/horror serial fiction line. Easier said than done.

There are a lot of challenges to serial fiction, not the least of which is keeping it interesting. Instead I pitched to write a mosaic of stories ostensibly set in the same universe and around a central story line, but not limited by characters, setting, sequence, or theme. It's more like a shotgun effect of fiction. The other interesting challenge is that my bi-weekly line of fiction has to be ~1000 words or less for the internet attention span. Quite the challenge to create interesting characters, setting, and plot in 2-3 pages, but one I am eager to explore. It's all about brevity and implication.

At any rate, check it out, and let me know what you think. I'm pretty pumped.

Here's my first entry:

I got in! Clarion West!

hey all. well, i got in. to Clarion West Writers Workshop, a six week intensive writers workshop for people trying to get into the Fantasy, Science, and Speculative Fiction industry, studying under Hugo and Nebula Award winning best selling authors of genre bending fiction.

i'm pretty pumped about this, and about my classmates, some of whose work i've perused: very impressive stuff.

so, in order to make this happen (it's not a cheap workshop) i'm trying to offset some of the travel and workshop costs by self-publishing the best work that comes out of this workshop. here:

this is essentially a win-win cause I get your support, and you get a book!

at any rate, even if you can't support, that's okay, you can check out, read, and comment on my work as it's published up on this site.

thanks all!
