NEW RELEASE: The Seeker from Hivrala

C.M. Simpson's short fantasy short story, The Seeker from Hivrala, has just been released on Smashwords, Amazon, and DriveThruFiction.




Sandfire is a dragon, a guardian of the mountains, and a servant of the Gatekeepers. It is her duty to collect those the Gatekeepers designate seekers and bring them to her masters. The only problem is that the latest seeker doesn’t want to go.

I’d always considered myself one of the lucky ones, lucky that the slavers had taken me and left my family, lucky to have found a master as kind as the one I had, just… lucky, so, when my master asked me to ride one of the many-legged spurline on an early morning errand, I considered myself lucky to have the honour.

New Cover: Luck Among Servants - C.M. Simpson short story

We've just finalised the new cover for C.M. Simpson's fantasy short story, Luck Among Servants. It's due for release on May 19th.


Titles Released in March 2017

These are March's titles:

THE MEDUSA'S STARMAN

 MARCH 3RD



Hani is surprised when his wife joins him on the journey to barter for spider silk, moreso when she brings their children. Nothing, however, prepares him for what the children do when they meet the spider queen. 

366 Days of Poetry (EBook)

MARCH 5TH


366 poems of fantasy, science fiction, speculation and social comment, exploring the darkness, the future and the fear.

A poem for every day of the leap year, drawn from the fantastical, the future and the fallout from real life—and written for dreamers everywhere. These poems mainly use the genres of science fiction, fantasy and horror for inspiration, although there are a few whose roots are buried deep in the disappointments of the real. So, if trolls, fairies, dragons, recovering from workplace bullies, and flying with starships, or dealing with regrets and finding hope—always finding hope—are your thing, then welcome. Come walk the wanderings of my mind. I could use some company.

MEMORY'S RETURN

 MARCH 17TH


I don’t remember how I got in the alley, at least, not when I first wake up—and I don’t remember the names of these friendly faces making sure I’m okay, but it’s coming back. I just wish it would come back faster, because one of these faces is all kinds of wrong underneath the friendly veneer, with an agenda all their own, and they don’t mind putting my team in danger. If I don’t remember the whos and whats and whys real soon, one, or all, of us is going to end up dead, and who’s going to save the pixies then?

THE MAGICIANS AND THE SILK ROAD

 MARCH 31ST

Hani is surprised when his wife joins him on the journey to barter for spider silk, moreso when she brings their children. Nothing, however, prepares him for what the children do when they meet the spider queen.

Bid the Moon Goodbye is now available on Smashwords, Amazon, and DriveThruFiction.



When Jervis’s son has a melt-down at school, and takes on partial wolf form, it’s just a normal family crisis, but when the nurse warns that anti-Lupine activists have the family’s name on a hit-list, Jervis needs to get them off the moon—and fast. The only question is how—and the only way to find an answer is to find a helpful spacer in the best pizza bar on Lunar One… and then hope there’s a ship with room for three.
