    My short story collection, For a Few Gold Pieces More from StarWarp Concepts, went live on Amazon, B&N, Kobo, iBooks, and Drive-thru Fiction today.

    If you like dark fantasy, unreliable narrators (hey, he's a protagonist, not a hero), and folk/fairy tales, I hope you'll enjoy the collection.

    I just signed a two book deal with Ace/Roc for a new Grimdark epic fantasy series!

    Book 1, "Priest of Bones" will be published in October 2018 - think "the Godfather with swords" and you'll be on the right lines.

    There's an official announcement in Publisher's Marketplace and everything - HUGE thanks to my lovely agent Jennie Goloboy for making this happen.

    Congratulations. The idea seems amazing, needs nothing more than flawless writing. It's already on my To-read list.
    Goodluck!

    So, you're going to make us an offer we can't refuse when it comes out, Pete? Seriously, congratulations!

    Is this a first review on this story or a first review ever? Congrats, either way. Yeah, that first review always feels good -- not only did they buy it, but they were moved to comment. The fact that it was a good comment is even better.

    Thanks Richard! I've got another one to share today, my first pro sale is now live on Escape Pod as Episode #571. The text is there as well as a 30-minute audio version read by professional voiceover talent Trendane Sparks. If you guys aren't familiar with Escape Pod, definitely check it out. It's a pro market that also produces great quality audio versions which are perfect for commutes, walking etc.

    I sold my short story, A Dog of Wu, to the Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction.
    I don't know which issue it will be in, only that it will be out this year.

    Absolutely thrilled that the Improbable Botany anthology reached its target on Kickstarter (I have a story in it).

    Only a week left folks if you want a copy of this truly gorgeous volume!
