Let There Be Dark

I've been writing for a while now, but have become more and more aware of the importance and value of community. Writing is such a solitary activity, and I love that it is. But I also love the idea of making contact and connections with the outside world. Hence, my decision to enter the world of blogging. I'm also hoping that it might encourage me into a writing routine (a bleak hope, I know - but I am an eternal optimist).

As for writing news, I have a story in the Australian-themed vampire anthology published by Ticonderoga Publishing, Dead Red Heart. It's going to be a huge book, over 130,000 words. Here is the table of contents:

“The Tide”, Martin Livings and friends
