New Episode!

Episode 22 of The Dark InSpectre is now online, in which our faithful hero makes a new friend who’s literally too hot to handle.

Here’s an excerpt:
The pain stops. For long seconds I remain motionless. The thump of my heart, the rasp of my breath. These things remind me I am alive. A low moan escapes my lips as I roll onto hands and knees, feel the warm, grimy pavement beneath me. My head feels like a crisped marshmallow, about to ooze off the stick and go splat on the ground.


Things are getting pretty intense for Jack. Stay tuned!

Latest Episode!

It's MLK Day, but The Dark InSpectre never takes a day off. Episode 21 is now online, in which our hero gets some intel on his latest suspect, and then gets a little warm and fuzzy with his ex.

Here's an excerpt:
Mentally, we wrapped our auras around each other, caressing each other across our link the way only tels could, far more satisfying than any physical foreplay. We continued for a few minutes, but then something happened. In my mind’s eye, it was somebody else’s face I was kissing, somebody else’s soft body I was touching.

Son of a...!

Okay, time for a little venting. I have about 4 stories currently circulating in the wide world of short fiction I'm waiting to hear back on. Two of them, I've just learned that the markets that've been supposedly considering them have shut down, at virtually the same time! Both stories have been on hold for about 5 months. That's 5 months of silence, and then I learn from that both magazines: Spectra and Sinister Tales, have closed. I didn't even find out from the magazines themselves! Unbelievable, that pisses me off so much! And one of the stories had been on hold for a year at Something Wicked magazine last year before I found out that one shut down!

It's enough to give me a super massive migraine. Oh wait, I already have one. So now I have to find new venues and submit them all over again, and the clock will start from zero.

On a brighter note, the writer/editor who has been holding a story of mine for three years posted on her blog that the anthology it's meant for is an immediate project for her. So we'll see if she gets moving. Fingers crossed!

Next Episode!

It’s a brand new year, but the same old Jack. Episode 20 of the Dark InSpectre is now online, in which our hero needs a little help from an old flame.

Here’s an excerpt:
There were others watching them, too, ones only visible to me. They stood shoulder to shoulder around the ring, young, old, men, women, all those who had died in the ring. They haunted this place and yet they, too, were haunted. Because they couldn’t let go. They yearned to get back in, to give it one more shot, but all they could do was watch.
