Short Story to be Published in Cricket Magazine

Hello, Internet! It’s been a while!

First of all, I’d like to announce that a short story of mine will be published in the upcoming November/December issue of Cricket Magazine! Based on an Ainu folktale, the story is called “Resak and the Bear.” Cricket has always been one of my favorite literary magazines, and it is an honor to have my story included in this issue.

In other news, you may have noticed that I’ve changed this website a bit. The Editing section has been removed and replaced with a new section — Games. It’s a little empty at the moment, but expect it to be filling up fairly soon. Over the last year, I’ve started to take my lifelong gaming hobby more and more seriously. I’m very excited about the projects I’ve been working on lately, and I hope to have something to share with you all soon!

What with starting a new job as an English teacher (not to mention my ongoing graduate studies, my first novel, and now the upcoming games), I can no longer offer my services as a freelance editor or illustrator (which is why the Editing section of the site is no more, and also why you will no longer see pricing rates under Visual Art).

Speaking of Visual Art, I updated the gallery with some concept art I produced for an indie computer game called Shadows of Niflheim by Glacier Studios. The game is yet to be released and seems a tad ambitious for the small indie company, but their talented staff has created a rich, colorful world and produced many innovative ideas. I had a lot of fun contributing to the game’s development and I wish them all the best. Keep an eye out for it — when it comes time for them to launch, I’m sure they could use your support!

Well, I think that’s all for now. Thanks for dropping by!
