THE CHESTNUT: December issue

The December issue of THE CHESTNUT is out on Amazon. This months story is called FROST ROSES and I’ve talked about my aspirations for it in details in the forewords to the story in the Zine but I can say it’s a mixture of Nordic Mythology and H.C. Andersen’s ICE QUEEN. In the ZINE I…

About a Book

First of all I want to let you know that the November issue of THE CHESTNUT is out. Go HERE for more. Second of all I want to tell you about a book.  Now this isn’t the kind of book I usually talk about, write about or in fact read. This books is different from…

Topography of a Journey: The Sound of the Waves (#3)

Excuses and Promises

So this isn’t the blog post I thought I’d be writing this Monday morning. But despite me uploading the new issue of THE CHESTNUT on the 5th it is still not live on Apple Store as I had intended for it to be yesterday. So while I really like the process of making the Zine I’m…

THE FORGOTTEN ONE (a poem and a reminder)

THE FORGOTTEN ONE  The white sands seem to go on forever, still I walk. It’s not snow but salt, as far as the eye can see. There was a river here once upon a time where you used to lean down to drink, water pearls on your lips.   I remember when you were still a stranger, curiosity and…
