My collection of free short stories. Because nothing else in life is free.

“Killing Deities” in Burning Bridges Anthology on May 1st

“Burning Bridges” is a new free anthology, out on May 1st, featuring these great writers (along with myself):
Julia MadeleinePaul D. BrazillHeath LowranceB. R. StatehamK. A. LaityBenjamin SobieckEdith MaxwellJoshua J. MarkMcDroll, Allen Leverone, Darren Sant

I’m fortunate to have, “Killing Deities”, in it. The story had gone through a number of different titles from “How To Kill A God” to “Killing Gods”. It’s a short story where manifestations, deities, created by people’s prayers and devotions, exist and interfere with people’s lives. In the center of a large lake of old electronics lives one – the god of media.

He stands taller than any man, wrapped in wire and rods. A monitor stands on its neck with a tiny tie that swings and he wants to know what business Sawyer has with him. The truth is Sawyer is killing all of them. And with the help of the old man who lives high above the clouds, he’s prepared.

I have plans to write more of his journey depending on the response of this first one. Initially I wanted to write a journey that delved into different genres. This one would be a science fiction / fantasy piece, the next a romance and so on. I also cut it down from 2700 words to 1900 and left less fat and more meat. I hope it leaves a nice taste in your mouth.
