Interesting little things happen at writer cons…
Like this- Literally got put together over two days!
HERE is the link for SPOTREPS – A Maelstrom Rising Anthology. And I’m VERY happy to be part of this one. There are some damn good writers involved, and I get to play in somebody else’s universe!
The writers are:
I’ve already written my first draft and am waiting for feedback, but I’ll share the opening paragraphs of my story-
Ranger Enrique Sandoval sat in his black Tahoe at the burnt-out remains of the Love’s Truck Stop on I-40, just east of Amarillo. He fiddled with the radio squelch and volume, making sure it was high enough to hear over the wind, then turned the AM radio down as he looked at his watch. I hope Austin knows what they’re doing. Sit out here and wait for a radio call from Leroy Jenkins, then meet with… Hell, I don’t even know who these people are that I’m supposed to meet. Triarii? Some kind of quasi-military group? And they’re running a convoy of supplies. From where to where? And I’m not to ask questions, or try to pull them over, or let anybody else in law enforcement know about it. This is fu…
The radio suddenly came alive on the Ranger’s tactical frequency. “Lone Star, Leroy Jenkins. Lone Star, Leroy Jenkins, how copy?”
Enrique keyed up. “Leroy Jenkins, have you lima charlie. I am at the designated meet point. Black Tahoe.”
“Leroy Jenkins is ten out. One vehicle, M1117, will approach you.”
This one is going to be a fun read, with all the different perspectives and authors, I’m REALLY looking forward to it!
