I did some pretty horrible things to Ethan in DEMONISED, so I decided to write UNGRATEFUL DEAD, a short story in which nothing very bad happens to him (except he bashes his knees a couple of times, but I think that's pretty good going compared to the events of DEMONISED). And I finished it today! Huzzahs! This feels like quite the achievement, since I've done no writing of note for like, two weeks, and today I wrote nearly three thousand. I'm hoping this will get me back on track with my other projects (although I have a bunch of guest blogs to write before I think about anything else).

Anyway, the point is, the first draft of UNGRATEFUL DEAD is finished. Behold!

6538 / 6538

Originally I was going to submit it to a Static Movement anthology, since it fits the theme of one of the open ones, but then I decided it would be much more fun to use it for promotion. So once I've re-read it and done the necessary, I'm going to ask my lovely editor at QueeredFiction if he can format it for the Kindle for me, and I'm going to put it up there dirt cheap. I'll also give away free copies to anyone who wants it.

This is a prequel short story, set before the events of both AFTERLIFE and DEMONISED, and it's just a fun, dumb story in which Ethan spends the night in a haunted morgue and then breaks into a funeral home and then goes home. I'm hoping it'll be all ready to go before the end of next week, and then I'll start pimping it out, yo.

ETA - Look! An awesome review for NIGHT AND CHAOS from [livejournal.com profile] yolandasfetsos . Further huzzahs!
