The June issue of eFiction is here!

That’s right, eFiction’s June issue has just released today, and with it has come the release of my short story “Dawnstar”.

A story about a security detail of Marines on board the TACN Dawnstar and their fight against pirates; Dawnstar is my most action-packed short story currently written. If you want to give Dawnstar a shot, or check out eFiction Magazine in general, be sure to head over to either their main website, or the Amazon webpage.

I sincerely hope you all enjoy both the publication, and my own story as well. For now, I’ve got writing to get back to.

You stay classy; I’ll stay busy.


“Dawnstar is awesome!…Goosebump-inducing, all American, futuristic bad-assery.” – Doug Lance; Editor-in-Chief, eFiction Magazine.

Those are the first words I’ve heard from anyone in regards to ‘Dawnstar’. Why do they fill me with so much happiness and joy to see? That would be because ‘Dawnstar’ is my now accepted submission to eFiction’s June issue.

That’s right, Ladies and Gentlemen, James has gone 2-for-2 on the publishing front. First: ‘Synthetic Reality’ made the cut, now ‘Dawnstar’ fills in the ranks of the other great works of the June 2012 issue.

It may be needless to say, but I am beyond ecstatic at the moment. This news has officially made my entire weekend all that much better. Not only because of the publishing, but also because I can partake in and observe the workshop editing happening behind the scenes. It’s the perfect way to see other techniques and methods that I’m not entirely familiar with; through that, I can improve my own skills as a–as Chuck Wendig would describe–Penmonkey.

So yes, folks, keeps your eyes open for eFiction come June 1st. If you’ve been good this year, you’ll find ‘Dawnstar’ filling your proverbial stocking when you wake up in the morning.
