Not a Story

Or, more accurately, not fiction. I just found out that my novel, Split Shift, has made the quarter-final round in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest!  I could not be happier, though at the moment I feel a bit of shock coming on.  The novel was born in a dream, which prompted me to write a flash fiction called Monkey in the Middle. I figured that would be the end of that, but the Old Wolf and the Grizzled Bear wouldn't leave it be until I told the whole story - and as it turns out, it was quite different than that little bit of flash fiction, though the players are the same.

ETA:  You can download and read the first two chapter for free at Amazon by clicking here. If you wish to review them, I would very much appreciate it.

Should I be so graced as to make the semi-finals, I'll let you know.

 UPATE:  The excerpt is no longer available on Amazon, as I did not make the semi-final round. Time to shop for an agent!


  1. Well done - loved and and want to read it all.

  2. Thank you! I am so glad you liked it. I hope I can find an agent who does, too.
