The Road So Far

All Covers 2017

Five years.

The Last Key came out  five years after my first book and short story in print.

The full score is 6 Novels, 1 Novella, 3 Anthologies I edited, 1 RPG manual with 2 short stories in it), short stories in 18 Anthologies edited by other people (including 3 reprints), and comics in 2 episodes of 1 magazine.

I have 2 Novels ready to go whenever I decide to buckle down and send them in, and 4 short stories going into Anthologies coming out in the future (including 1 reprint). I’m currently working on a new novel, which I paused to experiment with a serial story.

I hope this doesn’t come off as bragging. I’m just taking stock of where I’ve been, as a way of deciding where I want to go next. It’s been a rough year, and I think I need a little direction and motivation before I start to build up momentum again. Seeing this block of covers really makes me happy.

A writer’s only real success is the readers, of course. I’m immensely grateful to my readers, fans, friends, and family. I’ll leave you with some eye candy from the first test version of The Last Key by cover artist Eugene Teplitsky.

Here’s to the next five years!

Buy SCHISM and get money back!

Schism is on sale for just 99 cents! If you buy it soon, Amazon will send you a $1 kindle credit you can use to buy any other e-book. That’s better than FREE!


Also, if you act fast, I’m offering the first two people who buy it and message me on Facebook with a picture of the purchase a code to get the audiobook FREE, too. Here’s where you’d go to message me: James Wymore’s Facebook Page. Also, we should be friends if we aren’t already.

What are you waiting for? Get it now!

(Note: I think Amazon is running this promotion for anybody who buys a kindle e-book. You can only get it once, so it won’t work again if you got it already. Technically, you can get it for any book. So, if you have SCHISM already, you should still buy something. I recommend HAIR IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES by Andrew Buckley, which is also on sale for 99 cents today. If you post on Facebook and tag him, he’ll send you something else free, too. It’s like Christmas in October… which is like a movie, I think. Who loves you? I do.)

Long ago I entered this story into an online contest. It won. Since then I’ve had it available free to read on my page. Recently, however, Immortal Works featured it on the Flash Fiction Friday podcast. So you can listen to the whole thing in just 6 minutes. That’s not very long, considering it might make you rethink your whole life.


I have other stories they’ve done for their podcast, too. Find the whole list in my short stories page or on their channel.

The Actuator RPG


At long last, it’s finally finished! The full version of The Actuator Role-playing Game mod. You can use this guide to turn any RPG into a multi-genre campaign. It comes with two free short stories set in the Actuator universe as well. What’s better than that? It’s FREE!

The Lure of Fools by Jason King and Five out the Dark by Holli Anderson are also yours for the taking. The fiery conclusion to the Five series comes out on Monday! I’ve already read it, of course, and it’s brilliant. If that doesn’t do the trick, you can get Jason King’s Valcoria for only 99 cents. You might want to pick this one up now, because I have a story in the upcoming anthology set in this world that’s amazing.
