If this is your first time here, turning this website into something less hideous is on my list. I swear!

In the meantime, leave this ugly site and go listen to my new story at Cast of Wonders! Let me know what you thought.

Episode 236: Beats by Brent C. Smith


New Story

It’s been awhile. It’s been an up-and-down first half of the year. I hope to share my thoughts about that soon, but for now… good news! A new story is up at New Myths. This is another flash where I wanted to explore the ways in which we choose our reality, and how liberating it can be to re-choose.

Here it is: The Stars We Reach

I hope you enjoy it!

Oh, and a teaser… more good news coming soon!

New story at DSF

Happy Thanksgiving! For me, extra special because my story is up at Daily Science Fiction. Enjoy!

Is out!

You can find it at Amazon here. You can also find it at most other online booksellers. I’m so excited to be sharing a Table of Contents with so many amazing writers!

Also, the anthology was reviewed at Tangent Online, which you can find here. Needless to say, I was over the moon at the awesome things C. D. Lewis had to say about my story.

In other upcoming news, my short story, “Scenes from a Solitary Life” will be appearing at Daily Science Fiction on Thanksgiving Day, 11/26. I’d love for you to stop by and have a read. I’m really proud of this one.

Just returned (well, not returned so much as transitioned into vacation at beautiful Rangeley, Maine) from the World Fantasy Convention in Saratoga Springs, NY. It was a fun two days of meeting other writers, listening to panels discuss fantasy and horror topics, and hanging out with old friends. Next year the convention is in Columbus, OH and I’m hoping to make that my 3rd WFC.

I just got back from TNEO–The Never Ending Odyssey–a one week workshop for Odyssey Writing Workshop alums. As much as I learned from Odyssey, one of the greatest benefits has been the network of talented, supportive writers that become writing family. I learned some new things, reinforced some others, got some validation and some feedback, hung out with 21 others who were just as happy as me talking about writing all week, and came home recharged and ready to write! Yay!

To make it even more awesome, the morning I left, I received word that Daily Science Fiction is buying another of my stories, my 4th sale to DSF. This one is called “Scenes from a Solitary Life” and it’s one of my favorites, so I’m stoked that it’s found a home. More info to come as I get the details. Double yay!
