“Waking Nightmares” has gone to print

Haruah: Breath of Heaven: Jun. 21 Update

Though written well before the events, the editors felt this piece captured the emotion of the Virgina Tech shooting. A nightmare in the real sense of the word.

"Waking Nightmares" by R. L. Copple

What lurks in the deep recesses of the mind when the eyes close and dreams erupt? Sometimes the waking world has its own nightmares we wish were only a dream.

“Foundational Realities” is complete!

Today I received an acceptance on my rewrite of the 2nd chapter of this series: "Unknown Realities." That means the whole series is slated to go to print at The Sword Review sometime in 2008, all four chapters.

I'm really excited by this acceptance as I feel really good about the stories and have a sense that they will be well received. I've already has some very positive comments by those who have critiqued the stories. And I expect one way or another, these will get put into a chap book around the time they come out in the magazine by either the magazine publishers, or I may do it myself after they run. I'm sure I'll have news related to that as the time draws near.

Another sub bites the…acceptance pile!

I found out today that a quaint little flash fiction I wrote called "Public Identities" was picked up by a relatively new magazine, called A Thousand Faces.

This is a "super human" magazine, and I'm glad to have a story there as I like superhero type stories. As a matter of fact, looking back at my stories I didn't realize how many of them end up with superhero types in them. I think that comes from my comic writing days as a teen, and reading many of them. Even Sikso in Steamy Realities is superhero-like in his abilities, though put on him by God. (The series which goes with that will come out in 2008.)

This story is tentatively scheduled to appear in their fall issue. I'll of course give you a heads up when that happens.
