Dealing with some personal stuff and will only be able to post light here.
Also workshop assignments will be delayed a few days for the very first time.
Nothing critical so no worries.
I am super proud to be a part of this bundle and having a chance to work with Allyson Longuiera to put it together. Take a look. I don’t think you can find a better group of science fiction novels at this price.
Yes, I sometimes write young adult as well.
My very first published young adult novel was an Iron Man novel. It was called, if I remember right, Steel Terror. Part of a series one publisher was doing back in the early 1990s in conjunction with Marvel. I had fun writing it, but the series died and that was it.
Over the years I wrote a few other young adult novels and stories here and there. But I have two ya novels that were in Smith’s Monthly, first as a serial, then as stand-alone novels. Now, you can get one of those novels in a nifty Storybundle called THE LIGHT IN THE DARK YA BUNDLE.
The book I have in this bundle is a pure western young adult called The Life and Times of Buffalo Jimmy. I hope this winter to write more Buffalo Jimmy novels for Smith’s Monthly.
