After 5 years, endless rewrites, and a major compaction from novel to novella, I just received the galley proofs for the upcoming publication of my very first story. Gho, a paranormal fantasy about Hildi Schreiber, a teenage inventor whose paranormal vortex detector inadvertently leads to her murder and return as a ghost, will be published in August as part of an anthology from Bards and Sages Publishing. Details are TBD, but it sure is exciting to see those words all formatted up pretty and all.
For those of you who have read my short stories, this is the one that ties many of them together. Nishi from “Walking with Great Uncle,” Ice from “Along Sand Creek,” and Granny from “The Confederate Cavalryman’s Saber” all play leading roles.
