The Name of Your Story: Revelation of Rain

A short summary of your story: Radu, an exiled “Cloudwalker” returns to a place she has not seen in a very long time. If I gave anymore detail I would be spoiling the story.

What other stories are you writing?

I am doing the first round of revisions on a novel that I loved writing, but I wouldn’t have a clue when/if it will ever be released.

What are your writing plans for the rest of 2015?

Well the biggest project is getting the aforementioned novel done and dusted, but between editing rounds I hope to write as many short stories as I can. In total I have been accepted to nine different anthologies through various publishers and find it a great fun way to get my name out there.
