It’s a modern-day fantasy set (mostly) deep in the ancient Appalachian mountains of West Virginia. We’ll release more details soon, but here’s the […]

Cirsova 2018 Spring / Summer Mini-Subscription Pre-Order – Last Chance!

Posted by Rampant Coyote on January 29, 2018

Hey folks. I do not have a story in either of these issues, but Cirsova is a great magazine emphasizing “pulp style” heroic science fiction & fantasy short stories. Yeah, there are a few of these now… StoryHack, Astounding Frontiers, Broadswords & Blasters, and others… all with different takes on “pulp,” but each is collecting […]

Writing: Dealing with Rejection

Posted by Rampant Coyote on January 23, 2018

If you create anything, you are going to have to deal with people who don’t like what you create. At best, they are uninterested. In some cases, you’ll get some people who derive joy from trying to destroy what you created, and tear you down. Sadly, the only other option is never to share anything […]

My apologies for being a little more quiet than usual this week. I’m recovering from hernia surgery. Recovery seems to be going pretty well, but I’m not exactly in tip-top shape. On the plus side… I’m catching up on some Netflix watching. And sleep, kinda, sometimes, belly willing. And even some reading. 🙂

Goodbye 2017, and Happy New Year!

Posted by Rampant Coyote on January 1, 2018

Last night we said goodbye to 2017 by watching the Rifftrax of Sharknado (which was hysterical), and playing the Pathfinder: Rise of the Runelords boardgame. We won about 8 minutes before midnight on the second-to-last turn before we would have lost. So… yay! Online, people are talking about how horrible 2017 was. For me… there […]
