My heroic fantasy novelette "The Gale at Quiet Cove" is now published as part of Unreal: An Anthology of Speculative Fiction, which officially bumps my total number of published short fiction pieces into the double digits! https://www.amazon.com/Unreal-Anthology-Speculative-Fiction-1-ebook/dp/B08632MBNX A little teaser: After a month on the road hunting monsters and magic, Knight-Lieutenant Arlise Dun just wants a hot bath and a decent meal. Not conversation with some selkie at Quiet Cove. But when Earc Mac Toghda tells her about the arcane storm plaguing his people, she vows to discover who--or what--is behind it. Faced with wild magic, an unruly subordinate, and her own self-loathing, Arlise must battle monsters real and imagined to unravel the mystery of the gale at Quiet Cove. After three really close rejections (and plenty form rejections) and an Honorable Mention from the Writers of the Future Contest, I'm really glad this story found a home.
