May Wonders Never Cease to Exist

1WriteWay

Although I occasionally write poetry, I don’t make a fuss about it because I so rarely do it.  And because I’m never quite sure if I should call it poetry.  My poems don’t rhyme.  They don’t have a recognizable meter or structure (and I don’t even know what I mean by that, either).  They don’t measure up to the poetry of Luanne Castle or Pamela Beckford.  But I write them anyway.

And sometimes I actually submit a poem for publication.  On a lark, as it were.  As I did with this one poem, When I Said Goodbye.  I submitted it to Tipsy Lit, an indie publisher founded by novelist and poet Ericka Clay.  To my happy surprise, Ericka accepted my poem and recently published it in Volume 1 of the Tipsy 10, available free on Wattpad.

Nicholas C. Rossis

From the blog of Nicholas C. Rossis, author of science fiction, the Pearseus epic fantasy series and children's booksThis is a guest post by the talented Veronica May, an experienced editor and blogger at A-Writer. She has written for multiple online publications, where she strives to share her knowledge and opinions. Her main focus is covering a variety of topics in the field of education.

8 Uncommon Habits That Make You A More Professional Writer

We may all write the same content and even the same topic, but what separates us from others is the approach we use to convey that message. What makes a writer good at his work has a lot to do with how they express themselves and very little with what they are expressing. Most of the topics you are going to read about have been written. They are already out there. All…

Ebooks and Digital Devices

Do you use an eReader? I do and love the ease and convenience. You can start with Paul’s books (and mine, of course). I have a Kindle and find that I’m able to read much more than I ever did when I was only reading paper books. Expense was a factor. But I ALWAYS have my Kindle in my purse.

The D/A Dialogues

Cover Art by Casey T. Malone Cover Art by Casey T. Malone

What do you do when the decisions you’ve made come back to haunt you? How do you make them right? Can you, when one wrong move will mean lives lost?

Deirdre O’Brien, an American political-activist living in Dublin, married the wrong man – and had to kill him to save the lives of thousands. Fifteen years later, he’s back from the dead, with a horrific plan to destroy the tenuous peace between Belfast, Dublin and London. To stop him, Dee will throw herself at a seedy underworld, where nothing is what it seems, and trust is a commodity too short in supply.

She only has three days – three days, and three ghosts. She will confront them, or risk becoming one herself.

The Race is On!

My review

Here is my review, as posted on Amazon.com:

Full disclosure: one of the stories that appear in this issue is by yours truly. I only wish I could say it’s the best one in the magazine.

Sadly, the competition was fierce, with another nine excellent stories to pick from. I particularly enjoyed The Assistant Assistant Port Keeper, with its atmospheric depiction of the everyday travails of a hapless bureaucrat, and Mazep-fal, with its excellent writing and perfect twist in the end, that reminded me of the old masters. Indeed, I bet that Philip K. Dick, a personal favorite, would have been happy to have…
