My Short Story “The Mechanical Dragon” to be Published in “Clockwork Dragons: A Fantasypunk Anthology”

I’ve been waiting a few days to be able to brag about this one.

About a month ago, I had hit a dry spell, and decided to “loosen up” by participating in a writing challenge, not something I do a lot of these days. I was considering writing a story for an open submission, but I didn’t know how to approach it.

So I crafted the 150 word tale The Clockwork Dragon.

That got things moving and I was able to forge ahead with the actual story. A few days ago, it was accepted for publication by Adam and Sam at Zombie Pirate Publishing for their upcoming anthology Clockwork Dragons: A Fantasypunk Anthology.

I originally hadn’t thought to set the beginning of my tale in Mongolia, but thanks to the prompt from What Pegman Saw, it folded right in.

I first titled my work The Engineer and the Clockwork Dragon, but was asked to streamline it a little.

Now, my story will be published as “The Mechanical Dragon”.

This is a double thrill for me, since it will be the second story published that is set in the steampunk world I created.

Look for my story “The Mechanical Dragon” in “Clockwork Dragons: A Fantasypunk Anthology” on January 15, 2020, but it’s on pre-order now.
