Irregular Round-up

writer

A lot has been going on lately. It’s hard to keep track of things myself. So, here’s a quick recap of the past couple of months:

I now have an entry on the Authors Database, which is a bit like IMDB. Except for writers, obviously. There you will find an updated bio, pics, links, and all the usual crap.

My latest reviews just came out in Morpheus Tales 22. Find out what’s hot and what’s definitely not. The supplement is a FREE download, so you have nothing to lose!

I signed up to Authorgraph, where readers can request electronically signed copies of my books. Apartment 14F: An Oriental Ghost Story, Dead of Night & Devil’s Island, as well as books by thousands of other (probably better) writers.

That’s innovation, baby!

I did an interview for my friends over at AmeriCymru, a website for Welsh expats, where I talk about my roots, China, and writing. The website is mainly centered on America, but not exclusively.

And an interview for Features Exec Media Bulletin recently about freelance journalism. This is where I inadvertently incurred the wrath of a raging feminist on Twitter, who disapproved of the fact that I work for men’s lifestyle magazines and am in favour of glamour models. Maybe I’m not the one with the problem, sweetheart!

Sakina Murdock very kindly did a profile of me for her stonking new website, which focuses on offering advice for novice writers:

I also posted a couple of new pieces about football and MMA on the Huff Post UK. All my posts are archived here:

The first anthology by DeadPixel publications has just been released, which includes my short story ‘Altitude Sickness.’

Finally, the new anthology from Sunbury Press, ‘Undead Living,’ includes ‘Handsome Jack.’

Maybe its all the off-field controversy, or that win over Swansea, but sales of From the Ashes: The REAL Story of Cardiff City FC, have been going through the roof recently. Up the Bluebirds!

About cmsaunders

I am a writer. I write. My dark fiction has appeared in Asphalt Jungle, Raw Nerve, Roadworks, Dark Valentine, Screams of Terror, Shallow Graves, Fantastic Horror, Unbroken Water and several anthologies. My first book, Into the Dragon's Lair – A Supernatural History of Wales was published in 2003, and I have also worked extensively in the freelance journalism industry, contributing features to numerous international publications including Fortean Times, Bizarre, Urban Ink, Loaded, Record Collector, Maxim, Nuts, and a regular column to the Western Mail newspaper. I lived in China for over five years where I taught English during my search for enlightenment, before moving back to the UK in January 2013 to work for a men's lifestyle magazine. I was senior writer on Forever Sports magazine and associate editor at Coach magazine, before leaving to chance my arm in the world of pro freelance. In recent times I have devoted more time to dark fiction, my latest offerings being the contemporary ghost story Sker House and No Man's Land: Horror in the Trenches. I am represented by Media Bitch Literary Agency and drink far too much coffee. View all posts by cmsaunders
