William Meikle’s “The Mouth of the Ness: The Loch Ness Monster Vs. Kraken”, the first instalment of 18thWall Productions’ new novella series, Cryptid Clash!, is now available as a Kindle download. (more…)
It’s a new month, and that means a new short story available on my Patreon page. But wait – there’s also a new bit of free to read flash fiction by me over at Gumshoe Review. So you have options this time around.
“Murder is a Meal for Two” is my first attempt at writing what could charitably be called a cosy mystery – no ghosts or ghouls need apply. Just two quick-witted private detectives investigating a case of food poisoning that may be more than it seems. I’d like to write more with Dixon and Dorsey, if time and interest allows, so if you enjoyed the story be sure to drop a line and let me know, or even leave a comment at the site.
Over at Patreon, “The Bayonet” is as different as can be. It’s a nasty little horror story, about a shell-shocked veteran, monsters that may or may not be real and a racist bayonet with a mission. It’s probably one of the more unpleasant things I’ve written of late, so, fair warning, it may not be to your taste.
That said, it’s only a buck, so why not give it a try? Becoming a patron nets you “The Bayonet”, as well as a handful of other short stories at the moment, with more to come. Besides the one-a-month schedule, I’ll also be adding some free, patron-only content in the future, in the form of hard-to-find reprints of my earlier stories, as well as a few PDF collections for download.
Anyway, go check those out.
It’s been a few weeks since my last WIP post. That’s the way of it, this year. Trying to do one every week seems a bit redundant, since it’s often the same flavour of post, good intentions aside. Anyway, here’s another one. (more…)
It’s November, and I’ve got one more book left to write before the new year. Luckily, I think I’ve got just about one more book in me. To paraphrase a great man, I got plenty left in the tank. (more…)
By the end of 2016, I will have written thirty-one novels, twenty-four of which have been published (and three of which never will be). I have three novels commissioned for 2017, with a possible two others to be added to that schedule.
It’s fine. This is fine. I can do this. (more…)
Get it? Aaron Blur? Like Burr. Aaron Burr. Third vice president of the United States. Shot Alexander Hamilton. No? Isn’t there like a musical or something now? Was that a thing? Anyway, I thought that’d be a perfect super-type name. Aaron Blur, Fastest Politician Alive.
Look, I’m having a weird day, okay? Forget it. On to the weekly update. (more…)
I started working on my fourth novel of the year this past Sunday. After I finish it, I have two more to write before the end of the year. Because I’ve got bills and this is how I pays ’em. (more…)
