Monday’s Story: Bearly Skared @ Medium.com

Bearly Skared has been live at Medium.com since, Monday. I wasn’t well enough to update this blog about it, but here I am now… anyway, as I’ve said the next two weeks won’t see any new stories. As for what happens next that’s still up in the air, but I’ll know by the New Year….

Remarkable Objects – Part Three @ Medium.com

The third part of Remarkable Objects – Part Three was posted on schedule, but I have bronchitis at the moment, so getting around to blogging about that has been low on my priorities. Even said, it’s there, so now’s the time to find out what happens next… Penny gave Aaran about a minute to clear…

Another Monday, Another Story

Well technically it’s the second part of the same story. Remarkable Objects – Part Two is live at Medium, so drop everything you’re doing and check it out! If you haven’t read the first part, why not? It’s right here. Here’s a sample from Part Two: There were about as many coins as she could…

Remarkable Objects – A Four Part Murder Mystery

I’ve been eager to get this out for a while now. This was the story I wrote last year when I decided to challenge myself to daily writing. The result was just short of 20k, almost a novella. Not bad at all. This year is different: NaNoWriMo is real, and different than I imagined. It…

The good news is…

Gutenberg is actually getting easier to use. Feedback will do that. Feedback during the writing process, however, is another story. I suggest that while you’re writing, just do it. Don’t let anyone else actively tell you how to tell your story. Instead read a lot and pay plenty of attention and over time you’ll understand…

“Skitcher” now live @ Medium.com

Right out of the gate on schedule, “Skitcher” is available to read free at Medium.com! Details, right? If you enjoyed last week’s story (or any of them, thus far), here’s another! Here’s a sample: The hoots and hollers of the crowd thinned, and behind blasting plate was muted entirely. No one around — who could smell — minded the…

New book listings … Bold Curves, Sector Bomb and A Thief at the Gala

Haven’t been at it for a while on the writing front, but I’m back again with a few updates, so … here we go: Bold Curves (link) re-published with new content at the humble price of $1 (minimum). Synopsis: Aaran has a problem with her other self, and overcoming this individual somehow results in her…

Remarkable Objects – An Aaran Coates Mystery

This is the result – after some necessary editing – of the challenge I began alongside NaNoWriMo in November. My first police drama. Enjoy! Remarkable Objects By Simon Woodington Face first on the pavement, no sign of trauma, foul play or … anything that a keen eye or diagnostic hand could detect. Detective Inspector Penny…

A dim idea of safety …

A sample of Ahead on Machined Shoulders available now at Wattpad: [May is the wife of Remy Therison, Aaran. At least in a full prosthetic she can protect herself. Convincing her to keep a bodyguard is not an enviable task. One I’ve been charged with by Garen many times.] [Not to be insensitive about her…

Resolute Gait, Wispy Child Excerpt

Eight cruisers had somehow veered into a Hauler robot dragging twelve long tons of raw NA-16 through the middle of Angel City North and right across my doorstep. The first smacked into the Hauler, and from my ground level office I heard the groan and wail. Haulers sometimes develop personalities, and even a few like…
