Where the inane meets the mundane

Mailing lists! Re-releases! Giveaway!

Legitimately not click-bait. In order:

  • Want to know when I have something being published or other writing news ahead of the blog? Join the mailing list! You’ll get notified of upcoming publications and pre-releases ahead of the blog! Just visit the newly rebuilt CummingsWrites and sign up!
  • Want to get copies of books before they’re released? Yes, I said books! Sign up for the ARC list here! There’s only one catch – by signing up, you agree to leave a review when the book is published. Failure to let me know about the review will have you removed from the ARC list.
  • Haven’t read A Scent of Roses yet? Good news! I’ve released an updated copy on Amazon, this time with (I’m ashamed to say) better spell checking and grammar checks. If you’ve already read the book, that’s fine too – there are no changes to the content of the book, only the corrections that should have been there the first time. As a part of this release, I’ve also switch to the new Amazon printing of the book, which means a lower cost for you!
  • Finally, between now and May 26, I will be running a raffle! Anyone that signs up for the mailing list will be eligible to win a free Kindle copy of A Scent of Roses, and one lucky winner will also get a copy of my upcoming book, Chrysalis.

Making Ends Meet OR Meeting Our Ends

We have a treat today! The following guest blog post is from John A. McColley, a fellow writer in the Enter the Apocalypse Anthology. John lives at the edge of a 300 acre wood with his amazing wife and three amazing-in-training children. He has published works with Crossed Genres Magazine, Mad Scientist Journal and anthologies across the SFFH spectrum. He tends to write about heroes, from Aeolus, Master of Winds and Chiron fighting the weird around a steampunked Rouen, France to scientists working to fight alien plagues. You can find him on Facebook at and twitter at @JohnAMcColley
“I’m sure it’s just one of those things that happens every hundred years, like cicadas or something. It’ll be gone in a few days, a week tops.”

Upcoming Footnotes

The next week or so will be pretty quiet in these parts. We turn in our internet equipment this week, then drive up to our new house in Portland. Not that there would be time for a lot of blogging anyway, but being internet-less for almost a week makes it a sure thing.

That said, I’m scheduling a guest blog post (not sure when it will be going live, though) for the upcoming release party for the Enter The Apocalypse Anthology. The release party is the 20th on Facebook (banner below), so expect the blog post some time before that.

More news to come after the long break (I hope), but until then, stay safe and see you in Portland!
