April 14 update

Well, Stain- my newest short story- has stalled on me. So I won't make the May deadline for the magazine I was hoping to submit to but thats okay. The changes suggested by a few beta readers will improve the piece. I need to focus more on the core of the story which is the metaphor of the stain of the home invasion and its aftermath. Specifically its effect on the two female  characters. First draft had a Rambo-esque encounter with some bad guys which didn't belong there at all.

Also hard at work on Ruen - a fantasy novel- Doing what I hope is the final draft and then a line by line edit to make sure everything is just right. Still hoping to have it on kindle before the end of the year.

And work and sleep.

What else is coming?

Something to Take on the Trip is out now.
Be sure to check out my two stories in there (The Vet and What Ever happened To Annie Garrett?)

I am working on new material.

STAIN is about a home invasion and the aftermath. Its planned as a short story.

I am planning a return of Nick Crowell in a number of new short stories later this year on kindle and also I hope to finally publish a fantasy novel, Lives in Ruen, by 2015.

Remember- Trip is also now in paperback

And now just as I did with the first two books-which can be found by scrolling down this blog--- for those of you interested- here are brief question and answers with a number of the writers 


Author Question and Answers


Q and A with Kevin Anderson, Author of Controlled Experiments

Where do you live and what’s the day job?
I live in the mountains of Colorado, and writing is my day job. All aspects of writing, publishing, promotion, book signings, public speaking.

What inspired this story? 
A long time ago, a friend and fellow author spread a meme around, wanted to know how many writers could come up with a story that had the opening line “There were rats in the soufflĂ© again.”  It inspired some odd tales, and I took the challenge that I wanted to do a pulse-pounding action tale.  I think it worked.

How long have you been writing?
Since I was five years old. Never wanted to do anything else.

What are you working on next?
A lot of things simultaneously.  A graphic novel series based on my CLOCKWORK ANGELS steam punk novel, a big space opera The Saga of Shadows, and my Dan Shamble, Zombie PI series.

 Q and A with Vincent Trigili 
Where do you live and what's the day job?

I live in Virgina, USA, and I work as an Enterprise Architect for Liberty University. 

 What inspired this story? 



As with all of my stories they always start with a character. This time I was remembering the old cyberpunk days when you had swords and blasters side by side. I want to try my hand at that, and I wanted to get back to what I write best - optimistic character driven Sci Fi. I also have been reading a lot of strong female main characters lately (on purpose, I want to get better at writing female characters) and wanted to try one. The extreme shortness of this format (at least to me, I normally write 100 times more material than what I sent in to this anthology) provided a good test ground for that.  

 How long have you been writing?

That depends on what you mean by writing. My first novel was self published three years ago. My first published work was poetry in the early 90's,  and I wrote my first short story as a class project in 1988 or 89. Before that I had written many stories, but never shared them with anyone. I would just say I have been telling stories my entire life, and leave it at that. 

 What are you working on next?

I have almost completed the rough draft my sixth full length novel, Spectra's Gambit. I hope to have that out before summer. After that I am considering writing an episode for the Fog Land production (http://www.fogland.net/but I am not sure yet. I do want to get my seventh novel out for Christmas, but right now that looks like a bit of a dream rather than a goal. :)  My blog for my work as an author is

Q and A with Frank Zubek, author of The Vet and What Ever Happened To Annie Garrett?
What inspired this story?
The Vet: I’m a vet myself and have always felt bad about the guys and gals who return home from peacetime and war and in many cases, get abandoned. Not everybody of course but there are still far too many incidents. These people interrupted their lives for their country and now a number of them are lost.
And the story What Ever Happened To Annie Garrett? sprang from my love of dozens of characters I have read over the years. A reader falls in love with characters and sometimes, after finishing a book or story, they sometimes wonder where that character is and if they moved on from the problem they had in that book. Of course, any good story needs a little drama so I had the reader herself run into some unexpected trouble... 
How long have you been writing?
Since 1999.
What are you working on next?
A new Nick Crowell novella. He is a cop who encounters people in his district who are having life changing phenomenon happening to them. The twist of the whole series is that this is kind of forced on Crowell, who is just trying to do his job and every few months someone comes up to him asking for help for an impossible situation. He has no idea how to help them though he does try but it weighs on him that he can’t help them all.

story: Vietnam with a Side of Asparagus
Where do you live and what's the day job?

What inspired this story?

Early childhood memories of family dinners with war news coverage.
How long have you been writing?

20 years, but only started publishing in 2012.

Q and A for Cora Buhlert

Where do you live and what’s the day job?

My name is Cora Buhlert and I live in Bremen in North Germany, well known to fairytale fans as the setting for the Brother Grimm's famous story "The Bremen Town Musicians" and Wilhelm Hauff's somewhat less famous tale of the "Seven Lazy Men". Both tales have left their mark on the city and you can find statues of the characters all over town.
As for my day job, I'm a freelance translator and translate technical and legal documents for the shipbuilding, automobile, aerospace, environmental protection and offshore wind power industry.

What inspired this story?

What happens to the narrator of "Refusal of the Call" actually happened to me – well, except for the portal to another dimension part. But I actually did find a necklace with a red glass pendant in a little used handbag and couldn't recall either buying or owning it. I suspect I must have bought it at a street market on a whim, stuffed it into the handbag and simply forgot about it. My mystery necklace isn't actually magical, though.
The title is a reference to The Hero with the Thousand Faces by Joseph Campbell. One of the stages of Campbell's hero's journey is called "refusal of the call", which is basically the point where the hero (or less commonly heroine) has received his call to adventure, but is still hesitant whether to accept it. Of course, the hero in a Campbellian hero's journey story always accepts the call to adventure in the end, because otherwise there wouldn't be a story. Nonetheless, it got me thinking what would happen if the chosen hero or heroine actually did refuse the call, because they can't be bothered. And so "Refusal of the Call" was born.

How long have you been writing?

I have been telling stories for as long as I can recall. Sometime in my teens, I started to write them down, first in German and then in English. However, I didn't get serious about writing until I took a creative writing class during my second semester at university.

What are you working on next?

Currently going through editing is The Great Fraud, the fifth instalment in the Silencer series, which is my homage to the great pulp heroes of the 1930s and 1940s like the Shadow, the Spider and Doc Savage. In this story, the Silencer has a disagreement with a merchant selling borderline fraudulent novelty products such as X-Ray specs. You know, the sort of thing that was once (and maybe still is) advertised in comic books.
I'm also doing rewrites on "Troll Dating", my story for Lindy Moone's anthology For Whom the Bell Trolls.
Also coming soon are History Lesson and Debts to Pay, two new stories in my Shattered Empire space opera series.

 Q and A with Edward M Grant 

Where do you live and what's the day job?

I was born in the UK, but moved to Canada nearly ten years ago. By day, 
I build and support satellite ground stations around the world.

  What inspired this story?

I wrote an early version of 'Twilight Raid' years ago. It was nearly 
Halloween, and I was wondering what people might be afraid of in a 
future where genetic engineering made the creatures of fantasy and 
horror a regular sight on the streets. I pretty much completely rewrote 
it for this anthology, but the idea remains the same.

 How long have you been writing?

As long as I remember. The oldest story I have on my computer is one I 
wrote when I was nine, which would be over thirty years ago. From the 
late 90s to late 2000s I was writing movie scripts rather than books, 
and only began doing so again a couple of years ago.

 What are you working on next?

I'm trying to finish 'Horror Movie', a novel I began on a business trip 
back in 2010. Hopefully I'll release it in the next two or three months.

Q and A with Paul Levinson
Where do you live and what’s the day job?
I live a few miles north of New York City, and am a professor of communication and media studies at Fordham University

What inspired this story?
I've always looked to nature for all kinds of cures for our illnesses, minor and grave.

How long have you been writing?
To me, writing is so natural that it feels as if I've been writing ever since I was speaking.  In truth, I've probably been writing since I was in my first grade class, or about 6 years old.

What are you working on next?
The sequel to Unburning Alexandria, which is the sequel to The Plot to Save Socrates, both of which feature Sierra Wat
ers.   Both are time travel stories, so anything is possible.  And also my fourth Phil D'Amato novel - after The Silk Code, The Consciousness Plague, and The Pixel Eye.   He's a forensic detective in New York City, with a knack for getting involved in the strangest cases.

Q and A with JD CORE

1 Where do you live and what's the day job?

I live in a little town called Toronto, Ohio on the banks of the mighty Ohio River. The area features heavily in most of my writings.

2  What inspired this story? 

This story, "The Not Wanting," was originally an idea that I had over thirty years ago. I re-wrote it specifically for use in this anthology. I have no recollection of what originally inspired it, but the original way i wrote the story involved a gimmick I've done away with in this version. Initially the story was written in three parts Each paragraph in a given part began with the same phrase. It seemed clever at the time. Now it just seems annoying.

3  How long have you been writing?

I began writing in High School. I've maintained it over the years as a sort of semi-pro hobby, although in the past year, i have begun focus on it much more intently.

4  What are you working on next?

I have a new non-fiction book that just came out, and a few weeks ago the second novel in my mystery series was released. i am in beta with the third novel in the series, and I am about to begin outlining an episodic story about a man who creates a new life for himself off the grid after faking his death.

Q&A for More Than A Feeling and A Change of Heart by Cate Dean

1 Where do you live and what's the day job?
I live in Loomis, CA, in the foothills just above Sacramento. My day job - which is a done deal by the end of this year - is with the State Library. I work with public libraries and federal grants. Stimulating stuff. ;)

2  What inspired this story?
More Than A Feeling is a prequel to my series The Claire Wiche Chronicles. The main characters have been friends for a while in the first book, and I thought it would be fun for readers to find out how they met.
A Change of Heart is another prequel, to my time travel novella Choices. It shows how John Wolf, one of the main characters in that story, becomes the person Maura meets when she falls into his world.
I thoroughly enjoyed being able to create a bit of backstory for both of them.

3  How long have you been writing?
I've been writing since first grade. ;) Serious writing - the last seven years.
4  What are you working on next?
I'm about to release the first book in my romantic suspense series, Love in Time. It involves time travel, action, and romance, of course - all set against the background of England's rich history. I'm very excited about it!
5  Can people visit your web page or blog?
They sure can! Right here: http://catedeanwrites.com

6  Can people contact you? 
Absolutely. There are a couple of ways to contact me on my website.
Thank you for having me! It was a blast writing such a short piece of fiction, and for such a worthy cause.

Q and A with Neil Bursnoll

Where do you live and what’s the day job?
I live in North Oxfordshire in the UK. By day I work on HTML (the code that webpages are made from) projects for an Email Service Provider called Adestra. Due to my experience with this I've been able to modify my personal website to suit my needs.


What inspired this story?
About eleven or twelve years ago I owned a collection of Grim Reaper statues, one of which used to sit at the end of my bed. The story is based on a nightmare I had where this figure was the focal point. I have tweaked it a bit, but the general fright from that night is in the story.


How long have you been writing?

Since I was 5 or 6. I used to write heavily in my teens, sporadically in my twenties and I've picked it up again now that I'm in my thirties. I published for the first time in April 2013 and I've kept pushing since.


What are you working on next?

The second Augustus Baltazar novel is very close to completion. I am still editing my NaNoWriMo 2013 novel. I've also been working on numerous short stories, however Augustus Baltazar 3 is likely to be the next big project.


Can people visit your webpage or blog?

Q and A with Paul B Kohler

1 Who are you? Hi. I’m Paul, and I’m an Indie Author. I have written dozens of short stories, some of them published. I have written a few novels, and am working through getting more published there as well.
2 Where do you live and what's the day job?  When not writing, Paul is hard at work in the field of architecture. He has been in the field of design since 1992, and loves what he does. He lives with his wife and daughter in Littleton, Colorado, where he was born and raised.
3  What inspired this story? The name of my story is Alone. The premise to the story is how a lonely person copes with the feelings of being alone. Not only in his life, but in his world. It’s just a glimpse of his day, really.
4  How long have you been writing? I began writing in 1998, shortly after the birth of my daughter. My first short story, Amy, was written in November of that year, but went unpublished until November of 2013. That was when I found the courage to publish. Despite the fifteen year lag, I’ve written many unpublished works throughout the years. Linear Shift, Part 1 (September/2013) was my first published story, and was the kick off to his four part serial novel. Part 2 followed up in December of 2013, and Part 3 is planned for a May/2014 release.
4  What are you working on next? I have a few things in the works. First off, I am working on the third installment of my Linear Shift series. It is due out in May. Beyond that, I have a number of follow-up pieces to Borrowed Souls and Recoil that will hopefully satisfy my fans.

6  Can people visit your web page or blog? Yes, please. I have a website (http://paul-kohler.net) as well as an author page on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/paul.b.kohler.author) and on Goodreads (https://www.goodreads.com/PaulKohler)
7  Can people contact you? You bet. I enjoy fan interaction, and all of my contact info can be found on any of the above sites.

Q and A with Aditi Bathia (Surprise, Surprise!)
1 Where do you live and what's the day job?
I stay in Mumbai, India and have been born and brought up here. I work in the field of Market Research, which lets me understand the consumers and people in general so much better than I would have otherwise.

2  What inspired this story? 
I came across a discussion on an online forum around how ignorance is bliss. The discussions actually made me think whether it actually stands true, and that was what eventually led to this story.

3  How long have you been writing?
I have been writing for a few years now, but mostly just in a journal or on my blog. This is my first publication and I hope there will be lots more in the future.

4  What are you working on next?
I will be working on a fiction novel that I started just recently. It is a fun-adventurous story and I am excited to see how it turns out.

5  Can people visit your web page or blog?
Yes, most definitely: http://mindspeakadi.blogspot.in/

Q and A with Graham Brand (Recall)
Where do you live and what's the day job?



I'm a Londoner who moved up to the Yorkshire Dales seven years ago. I've been a metallurgist, actor and musician in the past, but for the last fifteen years or so I've been an Information Systems consultant and project manager.




What inspired this story? 




I can't really remember. When I saw the request for short contributions for the anthology I scanned down my 'Ideas list' - which tend to be single sentences slapped down when they occur to me - and this one stood out as being ideal for fitting to the flash fiction word count.




How long have you been writing?




Back in the late 70s, in my last year at school, I was determined to get published, and wrote a somewhat embarrassing letter to Asimov's SF Magazine, which had just launched. Life then rather got in the way...




About two years ago I resolved to take my writing more seriously, but the intensity of my IT work has meant this has happened in fits and starts. I'm getting there though, and hopefully I can keep up the momentum that I've had over the last month or so.


What are you working on next?

Apart from a handful of short SF stories, I've reworked some classic Indian Folk Tales, which I'm hoping we can illustrate and publish, possibly associated with the storytelling organisation my wife and I run, Settle Stories.

Can people visit your web page or blog?

That's another thing I've just got started! Yes, it's at crosstimers.com.

Please do, I'd love to hear from you. You can leave comments directly on the blog, or contact me through a form there. I'm rubbish at Twitter, but @crosstimers will get to me.

Q and A with Sheila Guthrie
1 Where do you live and what's the day job?
I live in North Carolina, where I was born 
and have lived most of my life. My day job is 
writing, though I’m trying to fit some other 
artistic stuff in there.

2  What inspired this story?
I was browsing at my favorite idea store... Seriously, though, when I first read about the 
anthology, I got a vague idea for some sort of 

time travel story, and let that work around in my head for a while. Ideas come from so 
many things, sometimes mere snippets that I see on TV or the Internet, or from something I 
read, like the newpaper. And sometimes they arrive out of thin air.

3  How long have you been writing?
Since I was around nine, and I realized that 
people wrote books for a living. It seemed 
like the best thing ever. I never had the 
confidence to try to get published before, but 
decided in 2011 that I wasn’t getting any 
younger, and if I wanted to be a “real writer” 
I’d better get busy.

4  What are you working on next?
I’ve got several projects in the works, 
including a rewrite of my first novel and the 
completion of the second in the series, a 
science fiction novel about the first humans to 
colonize another planet, and the zombie 
novel that insists it needs to be written soon
There are also several shorter works flitting 
around my brain that I hope to get to in 
between the books.
5  Can people visit your web page or blog?
