Big News: I Got Published!

To follow up from my post from last week, Big News: Getting Published, I am absolutely thrilled and delighted to announce that my short story Big Bang has been published in Nicholas C. Rossis’ anthology, The Power of Six.

It’s official, I’m a published author!

Nicholas was even kind enough to change the full title to “The Power of Six: Six (plus one) Science Fiction Short Stories” – with my puny single contribution being the “plus one”.

Here’s the updated cover:

The Power of Six, by Nicholas C. Rossis

The Power of Six – Cover of the anthology by Nicholas C. Rossis including six of his short stories, plus one teeny weeny short story by yours truly!

You can buy the book on Amazon, or, if you’ve purchased the original version without my short story, you can update it on your Kindle device.

It’s a great feeling to see “Amos M. Carpenter” listed as one of the authors on that Amazon link, so I am humbly grateful to Nicholas for including my story. (Thanks, mate!) I’m currently reading the other short stories by Nicholas (I’d already read two that were available on his blog) and am really enjoying them; they’re very clever as well as having a great sense of humour, so I hope you get to read them. Nicholas is also the author of Pearseus, a fantasy series with a bit of a “sci-fi twist” whose first two books, Year 18: The Schism and Rise of the Prince have both reached #1 on Amazon, with Book 3, Mad Water, due out soon.

Now I just need to finish my debut novel and get that published, and then… well, one thing at a time. I think I’ll just enjoy this milestone for now 🙂
