Measure a man only
By how he withstands defeat.
Truth lies in hardship.
“Behind the Mask” by Yours Truly
First off, no cyborg news. I might’ve torn my meniscus, but we’ll come back to that in a fortnight. I see a doctor on the 20th. All good vibes are appreciated!
Also, if you’re interested in a FREE STORY, check out “Throw Away the Key” in this week’s Trembling with Fear!
Also also, Fatal Fetish launched today from J. Ellington Ashton press! I’ve got a story in here titled “Glutton for Punishment.” The anthology title should tip you off, but it’s hella kinky. I’m slightly miscredited on the Amazon author section, but I assure you, I am Kevin Holtow. And I’m fixing that.
Any writers out there looking for some cool BGM would also do well to check out ChilledCow’s Lofi Hip-hop station. It’s pretty great.
Lastly, I subbed “Against the Odds” to Things in the Well’s Beneath the Waves anthology. I got shortlisted, but it didn’t make the cut. Frankly, I love that. I went up against huge competition and just missed it, meaning it’s a pretty good story, but others were slightly better. I’ll tweak it and find a new home somewhere else real soon.
What’s to come? Here’s a snapshot:
–I’m wrapping a zombie story today, but you know me. They aren’t just zombies. There’s something else in the horde, vicious, cunning, not alive, yet not quite dead…
–I’ll be wrapping edits on Before My Eyes (title may change) this week and sending that out for indie consideration.
–I’m 6k into The Reflection and The Echo, which I’ll be subbing to agents.
–More promo for ATHOM, of course!
And, I have a funny feeling I’ll have even more news coming up this week… So be sure to stop back this time next Sunday for another update!
