A New Short Story of Dark Fantasy

I'm getting ready to post a short story to SubStack. And when I say short story, I mean a LONG short story. About 10k words. I've been sitting on this story for years. If I had the time and interest I could keep sending out queries, but I'd rather just get it in front of readers. And I like the option to monetize Substack in the future and put it behind a Paywall instead of eternally for free on my blog.

Travel a new path with me soon.

Check out to find the story soon - Child of Iron. And read it while it is still free. It is dark fantasy, a little bit of grim dark with a splash of the epic fantasy. The question of the story is what happens when a young boy is pushed to his utter limit. How will he respond when a newfound power manifests within? Will he rise to the occasion? Stand strong against evil? Or will he succumb to the dark fascination of power?

All of this is leading up to posting a Kip the Quick short story that takes place between book 1 and the upcoming sequel, Kip's Return. And yes, I've been quiet on the blog for a very long time. Well, it's because I've been hard at work. And the fruit of that work will finally be revealed.

I'd be lying if I wasn't nervous to share. It's an old story. I wrote it back in 2010. If you've been a long time follower, you may have even read the first part ages back. Well, the full short story will finally be revealed. Stay tuned...
