Big News: Getting Published!

Ok, so it’s just a short story, not my (still unfinished) novel (… yet!), but nevertheless, I’m excited to announce that I’m going to be published! Yay! 🙂

I recently decided to “semi-publish” (ok, I might have made up that word) a short story I wrote some years ago by putting it in a password-protected blog post. Well, Nicholas C. Rossis, author of the epic fantasy series Pearseus (the first two books both went to #1 on Amazon and the third book is coming out next month), read my humble short story and deemed it worthy of being included in his collection of short stories titled The Power of Six. Of course I was honoured to accept.

I said in my previous post that I would be happy to give out the password to anyone sending me an email (just drop me a line at amosmcarpenter at gmail dot com) if they’re interested in reading my short story, Big Bang, and I’ll stick to that, although I’d of course love it if you went and bought Nicholas’ great book directly (after it’s been updated to include Big Bang). You’ll get six of Nicholas’ short stories, mine, and also a sneak peek (the first two chapters) at Ryan Schneider’s The Beginning, Book One in The Demon Drivers trilogy.

Edit – this just in from Nicholas: if you buy The Power of Six now, you can still take advantage of the $0.99 price before it goes up to $1.99 (still a great price, if you ask me!) at the end of the week, when it will be updated to include the new content. You’ll be able to update on the Kindle then to get my story as well, and can keep busy reading Nicholas’ stories until then.

So I’m very grateful to Nicholas for this opportunity, and I hope everyone who reads those short stories thoroughly enjoys them!

  1. Can’t wait to read it! What an achievement 😀

  2. Well done. You should be very proud!!

  3. I’m the lucky one here, to have Amos’ permission to include his awesome story in my collection! I still can’t fathom how two people from the opposite corners of Earth with no previous contact can write in such similar styles…

  4. That’s awesome! Congratulations!

  5. That is super exciting – congratulations!

  6. I think this is HUGE!! Congrats! Definitely get my attention when this is out!

  7. Way to go! I’ve bought The Power of Six so I’ll look forward to reading your story.

    Sorry, that was a message from my cat. He’s pretty fluent in binary but, as you can see, he makes the odd spelling error.



    • Haha, thanks M. T. – and tell your cat, “Pract-hiss makes purr-fect” 😉

      A buyer? Awesome, many thanks! I’ll write a post tonight about it being “officially released” now.

    • MT, many thanks from me, too, for buying The Power of Six! It’s so wonderful to meet readers! 🙂

      I suspect my cats, too, is trying to learn binary: they always sit on my lap when I work and watch me type. So, it’s either that, or they’re stealing my passwords. If your email is inundated one day by messages from me proclaiming my anti-dog/pro-cat views, please ignore.
