New short stories

It's double release week for me, with two new short stories coming out. First (just out today) is the anthology All Made of Hinges which contains my story Marching on to Glory. It's a collection of Mormon Steampunk, and is lots of fun. The idea was to include in each story some element of steampunk and some element of the Church of Jesus Christ of Later-Day Saints. In my case, I took the story of the Mormon Battalion and put them on an airship and armed them with steampunk-inspired repeating recoilless rifles.

I'm the editor for volume two of the Mormon Steampunk anthologies. Put Your Shoulder to the Wheel should be out in January 2019, with the third volume coming out in March 2019.

Second in line, coming out December 1st is The Hundred Worlds anthology, a shared-world where I'm writing in someone else's sandbox. This is a new experience for me, and it involved a lot of back-and-forth with other authors and the editor to make sure all the stories were consistent with each other since all our stories are in the same universe. My story Three Strikes tells of a woman with a lot of patience as she seeks justice for crimes against her family.

Both projects were put together with great editors and co-authors, and I'm happy how they have turned out. All Made of Hinges went to at least #6 on Amazon's Hot New Releases in one of their Steampunk categories today (it's first day).
