New contribution to Totally Novel on writing, update on Sweet Sixteen Killer

Image
I've been pretty quiet lately on the blog, sorry about that. I've been laying mostly low, though I did recently begin contributing to a new website for writers and readers called Totally Novel. My first contribution for members of the site is a post I titled 3 things that prevented me from writing a novel. To read the post, sign up for a free trial. Take a look around and if you don't wanna stay, don't renew membership. That said, it's a pretty cool effort being put together by a former Google+ member like myself. As a matter of fact there are several members on the site from the old Google+ days. (Side note: there is a free membership option)
I will be contributing to the Totally Novel blog bi-monthly for now. My next addition will be in August. I'm super excited for the site and I hope you can come join us and become a part of the groups, forums, blog, workshops, and more. 
All that said, I haven't given up here. This is still my primary site and blog. 👊

The Experiment (revisited)

Image
In the fall of 2011, a pretty amazing thing happened for me. I had a short story of mine published in The Derby Telegraph over in Derbyshire—you guessed it, in England. I had a short story being read by the people of Derbyshire, and in print no less. It was a fuzzy feeling of warmth. Knowing that somewhere, across the pond, people were picking up their local newspaper and reading a story by me. I'll never forget that fuzzy feeling.
Soon after the story made it to their website and I linked to it form this blog.
Well, recently I clicked on that Derby Telegraph link and found it no longer existed. Saddened by its removal from their website, but kind of understanding because it did sit on their site for many years, I've decided to republish the story here. And as is my new custom, I've converted it into 3 readable formats (epub, mobi, PDF). And also as is my custom, they are all free for download to read at your leisure on whatever device you carry or keep locked to the desk.

I'm revisiting an old short story today. This story of mine originally ran in The Derby Telegraph across the pond. Since they have taken it from their servers, understandably it's been a long time, I've decided to do what I do now. I converted it to 3 readable formats (epub, mobi, PDF) and made them available to download for free. You can follow to my blog to read a little blurb I made about the experience with The Experiment and follow the link onward from there to download.

The story is a super quick read (3 pages) and is a science fiction piece. If this sounds good to you, have at it.







Let me know what you think of The Experiment in the comments. At one time I developed a longer version, would you be interested in an extended Experiment?
