Over a year one of my first writing credits was published: "A Perfect Hell on Earth". Follow the diary entries of a Child Development Trooper on his first assignment in France. He is soldier in a very different Great War that has raged for so long that the remaining combatants have become warped versions of themselves.
I found Jake's Monthly, a project by editor Jake Johnson to publish a different anthology every month for a year. Impressed by such a feat (especially since Jake was still in high school) I decided to send my short story for the alternate history anthology. Luckily enough for me, Jake liked it and the rest is history. If you would still like an e-book copy of the Jake's Monthly- Alternate History Anthology (featuring "A Perfect Hell on Earth") you can get it at Smashwords for any price you want (even FREE).
Createspace and pick up a copy.
I congratulate Jake once again on accomplishing his goal to produce his excellent anthology series and hope that we will see him again in the publishing industry in the near future. Let him be a reminder to all of us that if you want to see something made, sometimes the best person to do it is you.
In non-alternate history news, I had another story published recently. It is a time-travel short story called "Road Trip" and it is appearing in the Forbidden Future: A Time Travel Anthology. Learn more about it over at my writing blog.
