I am happy to announce I have a historical fantasy story appearing in the Fall issue of the beautiful and wondrous DEEP MAGIC magazine. “Weep No More for the Willow” is the tale of the captain of a Spanish galleon facing off with gods, demigods, and a mermaid! If you like high seas adventure with foreboding omens, supernatural creatures, life or death stakes, and a twist on mermaid tales, you’ve come to the right place! Add a dash of romance, a sprinkle of revenge, and you have the perfect recipe for a dish best served…wet. Hey, the story takes place on the water, what do you expect?
Come sail away as I debut my award-winning tales of the Spanish captain Capricho on the pages of DEEP MAGIC. I have been writing Capricho’s stories for twenty-five years, first in live online performances, and now on the pages of professional anthologies and magazines! My tales of Capricho’s young adventures have appeared and continue to appear in Third Flatiron Publishing’s anthologies. In fact, two thousand readers from around the world voted in Critters Readers’ Choice Awards and chose “War Dog”–a young Capricho story–as the Best Science Fiction and Fantasy Short Story of 2018! Well, I think Capricho fans will be even more excited with this tale–he’s older and wiser, and he’s got himself a boat!
