The sky was black. Shadows danced between the trees that surrounded Piper as he dashed through the brush. He could feel brambles and twigs grabbing at him, as if they were gnarly fingers, trying to trap him. Panic was filling him as he struggled through the dens

So this week I had a spark of insanity…er, inspiration! I’ve decided on my project for this year’s NaNoWriMo! Well, what do you guys think?? The synopsis goes something like this, but is subject to change: The year is 3088. The world has fallen to vermin and disease, cats having been erased from it by a devastating plague. To protect themselves, humanity has encapsulated their cities inside glass bubbles to keep the vermin and diseases out. No one goes beyond the glass walls.

So today I was going to share another part of a short story with you all, but then I got caught up doing covers for the short stories I’m working on, so I thought I’d share those instead! The first cover I worked on is for the science fantasy short, “Jewels for Gemma”: Gemma is a retired member of GLOW, the Galactic Law Enforcement Over-Watch. She and her husband, Jared, are living the perfect life, but then a blue diamond shows up on her walk home one night. All she can thin
Part One - Go back and read the beginning. I'll wait til you get back! Light was beginning to pierce the blinds, lazily trailing across the floor of Gemma and Jared's bedroom. Gemma hadn't slept a wink, unable to stop staring at her purse. She'd dropped it on the dresser like she always did, but all night long a paranoia had kept her awake. What if someone came for the jewel? What if someone tried to take it while her eyes were closed? No, she couldn't let that happen. So she
Writer’s prompt: The Sword in the Ceiling
By: Brian A. Klems | July 19, 2016 |
After a long, hard day of work, you return home—the only problem is, your front door is wide open, all your lights are on and there’s a sword stuck in the ceiling. The rest of your house looks normal, but you also notice several holes dug in your backyard. What’s going on? My heart dropped to my feet. The sword in the ceiling? I knew what that was. I’d been found. They were here, and, from the look

Art by Stephanie Brown @ Offbeat Worlds Jet is from Gexalatia, his and Nyx's home world on the other side of a portal that is hidden in the East Texas woods. He hails from the country of Siccita, the son of the king in the south, King Paraximus Lamia. Jet was once a great general, leading his father's armies to many victories. The only person he could never conquer was Nyx's grandmother, Queen Liana Estrella of Ymber. Jet was released from his imprisonment by Liana on the con
Something that’s always been difficult for me is finding a community. As most authors are, I’m pretty introverted, and this makes face-to-face interactions difficult sometimes. I get anxiety when I see people that I recognize, and sometimes I’ll go out of my way to not have to talk to them. I’ve always understood that finding a group of other authors to commune with was necessary, but I didn’t realize how connected it would make me feel until I realized that I’d accidentally
