A while back I got to know a fantastic writer, publisher, web designer/developer, editor and all around entrepreneur via Twitter by the name of Faydra D. Fields. She is an amazingly talented individual, and I have had the pleasure of working with her off and on for about a year or so now.
She has an impressive resume, that recently expanded, with her production of the “Independent Author Index Short Compilation.” Faydra is the creator of the Independent Author Index website and network, and recently furthered this endeavor with a regularly published anthology of short stories. I was lucky enough to submit and be featured in the first volume with my short dubbed, “Rory Winters.”
“Rory Winter” is a tale of rival treasure hunters stalking the same mysterious artifact. Their fates are intertwined at a level that they cannot even imagine, but how far will the rabbit hole take them before it finally releases its grip?
This, essentially, was a homage to all of the wonderful action/adventure stories set in the 1930′s and 1940′s. The very same ones that George Lucas pulled from to create the “Indiana” Jones” tetralogy. This project was particularly close to my heart because it plays into several past times of mine, and if you are grabbed by these genres just as I am, don’t fret–I have plans to serialize Rory and Ashe’s adventures into a long running series that will (hopefully) develop into an anthology of novellas.
You can purchase the “Independent Author Index Short Story Compilation, Volume 1″ via Amazon by clicking the cover image below, or you can visit my short story’s page on the Independent Author Index’s website by clicking the “Rory Winters” cover.
If anything, check out this collection of short stories to get a feel for all of the wonderful material that indie authors are producing today.
