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. So much that I want to give you a thank-you gift. So how about a bunch of free collections by some famous authors to fill up your kindle?

Just follow the links!

Franz Kafka

H. P. Lovecraft

O. Henry

Saki

Rudyard Kipling

James Joyce

Oscar Wilde

Herman Melville

Lewis Carroll

Plato

Joseph Conrad

Okay, technically I didn’t make those gifts. But there are plenty of free ones on my Short Stories Page. Plus, 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!

Actuator Fan Fiction

Only 4 days to the release of the final book in the Actuator Series: The Last Key!actuator-3-e-book-cover

To celebrate, I’m posting a short story written by an anonymous author (by permission) here on my website so you can read it for FREE! It’s set the same time as the Chaos Chronicles, and I absolutely love it. Honestly, if I’d gotten it sooner, I’d have put it in the anthology.

So, while you’re waiting for the fiery finale, please enjoy this fantastic Cyberpunk-Romance cross over:

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.)

Double Vision Free Audio

Double Vision Podcast

Now available as a FREE Flash Fiction Audiobook from Immortal Works Press:

DOUBLE VISION

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.

Enjoy!

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

Free Audio Short & Good News

I always like going to conventions. I’ve been going for years and I have quite a line up for 2017 already on my appearances page. Usually I split a table with several authors to cut costs and do several panels in trade for a free ticket and some food. Today, for the first time, a convention offered to pay me! That’s a big step! There’s usually a hierarchy of guests at these things, so breaking into the next level is really exciting. So my new favorite convention is Snake River ComicCon in Pocatello!

If you are anywhere in the West, I recommend it. Especially since pre-registration tickets are just $35… so get them quick! The Space Balrogs are all heading to Idaho to run three game panels and have a lot of other fun.

If that’s not enough good news for one day, Immortal Works also published the audiobook of one of my short stories for Flash Fiction Friday! It’s short, just 7 minutes. They’ve been doing some amazing short stories every week for months. If you have iTunes, go to the store under podcasts and search for Immortal Works. Subscribe and download a bunch of great stories. You won’t regret it. If you don’t have iTunes, you can go to YouTube and subscribe there. If you just want this one, find it HERE on the IW website.
