Writing Update

It's been awhile since I've provided an update on my diverse writing projects, so here goes.

I'm still shopping around my novel Harlem Smoke, the first draft of which I finished around a year or so ago (a few months back I completed the third and final draft). Hopefully it will find a publisher soon: things are still in the works but nothing is set in stone yet. When that time comes, I hope to commission my friend CL Martin to provide the cover art. Some of her work may be seen here: http://clmartinfineart.daportfolio.com/

Inspired by the recent self-publishing endeavors of Mark Samuels, I'm also toying with the idea of self-publishing The Killing Game, which is the first volume of my Trinity fantasy trilogy (or Metatron's Arch, to use the proper name of the series). Obviously I don't expect to make any money doing this, but I do like the idea of having it available for the curious to read, as I still think it's an entertaining book.

Although I have written very few short stories these last three years (mainly because I've been busy with the Trinity books and also Harlem Smoke), I did recently complete a new story, "XYschaton," which hopefully will appear in an upcoming anthology (more details on that to come). It is my intention to one day have a 3rd short story collection, but I still need to write at least 8-9 new stories before I can get to that point.

My first novel, Confusion, which I self-published in 2006, remains out-of-print. For those who wish to read it but are unable to find it elsewhere (as far as I know, no copies may be found online through out-of-print/secondhand dealers, making it all but impossible to get), you can always just e-mail me at rexpop@cox.net and I'd be more than happy to just e-mail you the Microsoft Word Document of it.

Currently I am not working on anything new, mainly because I've been busy trying to get Harlem Smoke published. I have a feeling that once that happens I'll get back into the swing of things. I just don't want to be one of those writers who has tons of unpublished manuscripts lying around!
