Short Story – “Rebound”

Before I began writing my first novel, I spent a few years working on short stories so that I could improve my language and mechanics. I also did this because I wanted to get a few publishing credits to my name before I took a major work to an agent or publisher; I thought it was very important that I had some experience with publishing rather than just dive into the novel business with nothing on my resume, especially at a young age.

I had a bunch of stories eventually be published in both print and digital formats across a variety of small-print outlets, but I also had plenty that never found their way to the public. Some were outright rejected by the publishers I sent them to. A couple were accepted, but the publisher ceased operations before/after they were published (a very common occurrence in the independent writing scene). Some I wrote just for the heck of it, and never even tried to get published.

One project I’ve regrettably kept quiet about around here is a website called The Geekiverse, which my good friend Josiah LeRoy launched in 2014.

I really wish I had more time on my hands, because I could spend hours writing about the seemingly-endless movies, video games, and tv shows set to release this year, along with the laundry list of books and comics that I plan to read throughout 2016. It’s going to be another busy year for me just when it comes to my entertainment choices, but I can’t wait to jump in on it all. Until then, here’s my list of what’s got me most excited for the year.

Best of 2015

Well, that was a fun year! 2015 kept me busy, sometimes far more than I ever asked it to, but I look back on it very fondly. There were numerous comic cons attended, plenty of progress made in my book, The Luminous Legend, and far too many entertaining movies, books, comics, and video games that I enjoyed. Just as I did for 2014, I’m here to narrow down my favorite pieces of entertainment media from 2015.
