The Other Side of the Mirror
Revised this short story a few times and at this point it says what I intended to say. However, and here's the big BUT, it is not the story as I had originally envisioned. Instead this one tells the same story with fewer characters, the reason behind the story has been clarified, and it is still less than 5,000 words. Sadly it has been rejected twice.
Haven't gone any further with it to date, wanted to finish writing "Battle for Lurandor" and now I've got to do the final edit on "Benaeth the Stars Above". I've had several thoughts and the story is still stuck in my mind but certain aspects are changing with how it will be put together.
Waited till today so you wouldn't think this is an April Fool's joke. I've had this story in the back of my mind for a few months now and it wants out! I'm not going to say to much about it other than it is my first real attempt at a horror story. Actually I've been resisting writing it and that's got to be the reason it hangs around. Well I've stepped lightly into fantasy with "Beneath Starry Skys" which is due out shortly, unless my publisher has dropped dead, and that was a fun piece to write; this one won't be.
