Burn the Map

...and the atlas and the guide book and the GPS and everything else that thinks it knows where you're going. 'Cause I'll tell you a secret, friend: They don't have a clue.

Welcome, traveler!  Is it a new world you're looking for, or perhaps a very old one?  Either way, your journey begins as soon as you click one of the links to the left (or up above, if you're inclined to the mobile devices).  Think of them as portals to other times and places... I mean, you could think of them as simple navigation buttons, but if you're going to do that, there are zillions of websites you could visit.  But you didn't.  You came here.  So saddle up, suit up, buckle up...  Grab your blaster, your sword, your spellbook...  Basically do whatever it takes to feel ready for adventure and dive into stories where no explorer or mapmaker has dared set foot.  Oh, and I almost forgot...  Where you're going, you might as well burn the map. 

On a Quest...

Greetings and well met, readers and surfers of the web! Those of you who have been keeping track may have noticed that my updates and story posts have become a bit sporadic of late.  There is a valid reason for this that I probably should have shared sooner.  I was hoping to wait a little longer to reveal the surprise, but I feel I owe my readers an explanation sooner rather than later...

I have been devoting virtually all my writing time to a new project - a novella-length follow up to last year's short story, "Identity".  I still have a little more work to do before sending it off to my publisher, but once that's done, I will do all I can to make up lost time here at Burn the Map.

That said, I'm very excited about the novella I've been working on, and I hope you'll all be excited as well when it is released.  If you haven't downloaded your copy of "Identity" yet, scroll down and click on "Older" below for an excerpt and links to download the story from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or directly from the publisher, Rogue Phoenix Press.  The new story is going to pick up right where the prior installment left off, so you won't want to be playing catch-up when the novella launches.

That's all for now.  I appreciate everyone's patience, and I look forward to hearing from all of you in the comments or via the contact form.
