Snell's December Update

New Release
Permuted Press recently published the anthology Elements of the Apocalypse, four novellas that destroy us all with water, earth, fire, and wind. My novella, "Remains," follows a young man through a world plagued with spontaneous human combustion.

Hell, the day after tomorrow could hit, and paper books could be burnt to keep us warm. As far as I can tell, a Kindle won't start a fire worth a shit compared to Stephen King's Firestarter.

Short Stories
"House of Flesh" is due at the end of this month. So far, the story has received great feedback from all beta readers. I'd suggest that the title says it all, but it doesn't. Not even close. But I don't want to spoil it.

"Dick, and Larry Too," the sequel to my story in Blood Lite: Overbite, is finished, but too interconnected to work for Blood Lite 3. So I'll be writing another submission for that antho, which also closes by the end of this month.

"I really loved this story.... I found your writing and insights very literary and very important."

Book Signing
Awhile ago, I wrote about disasters and goodwill. Earthquakes happen. Fires. People need help. Next Saturday, I will be signing books to benefit a local family who deserves a nice Christmas. I think that's important, helping others when you can. I can't even fathom how much others have helped me.

This Christmas, I would encourage everyone to donate something to someone. There's no reason that, in a land of plenty, we should have any dearth.

Happy Holidays!
