Here be Dragons!

The anthology, Dragon: Ten Tales of Fiery Beasts is published. Edited by Rayne Hall, it features short stories by regular contributors to the series as well as newbies. Like me.

After completing a writing course tutored by Rayne, she approached me and explained there was a hole in her upcoming Ten Tales anthology; she had only nine stories and needed another. And she wanted it quick. Did I have any dragon stories? If not, would I like to write one?

No, I didn't have one, and yes, I'd love to. Needless to say, I was pretty damn chuffed that she asked me. Our fiction is of a similar nature; mostly with a dark core...

"Alone With the Bones", the first dragon story I've written, was drafted inside a week and polished for submission within a fortnight.

Not only was it my first dragon, but it was the fastest one, too.


The anthology is only available as an ebook. It doesn't matter if you don't have a Kindle or any other eReader, because you can download it in .pdf format and read it on your computer. So no one misses out!

You can download if from:


Apple, Sony and other retailers will soon stock it.

Enjoy.
