Cover Reveal - A Change of Mind and Other Stories by Nick Wilford

One of the best things about blogging is getting to celebrate the success of a super-nice and deserving writing friend. I'm happy-dancing over here, because I get to participate in the cover reveal of Nick Wilford's upcoming release, A Change of Mind and Other Stories

Congratulations, Nick! :D

Title: A Change of Mind and Other Stories
Author: Nick Wilford
Genre: Contemporary speculative fiction
Cover Design: Rebekah Romani
Release Date: May 25th 2015

A Change of Mind and Other Stories consists of a novella, four short stories and one flash fiction piece. This collection puts the extremes of human behaviour under the microscope with the help of lashings of dark humour, and includes four pieces previously published in Writer’s Muse magazine.

In A Change of Mind, Reuben is an office worker so meek and mild he puts up with daily bullying from his boorish male colleagues as if it’s just a normal part of his day. But when a stranger points him in the direction of a surgeon offering a revolutionary new procedure, he can’t pass up the chance to turn his life around.

But this isn’t your average surgeon. For a start, he operates alone in a small room above a mechanic’s. And he promises to alter his patients’ personality so they can be anything they want to be…

In Marissa, a man who is determined to find evidence of his girlfriend’s infidelity ends up wondering if he should have left well enough alone.

The Dog God finds a chink in the armour of a man with a megalomaniacal desire to take over the world.

In The Insomniac, a man who leads an obsessively regimented lifestyle on one hour’s sleep a night finds a disruption to his routine doesn’t work for him.

Hole In One sees a dedicated golfer achieving a lifelong ambition.

The Loner ends the collection on a note of hope as two family members try to rebuild their lives after they are torn apart by jealousy.
Nick Wilford is a writer and stay-at-home dad. Once a journalist, he now makes use of those rare times when the house is quiet to explore the realms of fiction, with a little freelance editing and formatting thrown in. When not working, he can usually be found spending time with his family or cleaning something. Nick is also the editor of Overcoming Adversity: An Anthology for Andrew. You can find him hanging out on his blog or on Goodreads or Twitter.

IWSG March - I Survived

This is my Insecure Writers Support Group post for March.

Alex's awesome co-hosts this month are:

Please stop by their blogs and say thank you

Last time IWSG met, I was facing the first public appearance of my writing career. Well, I made it through. I won't say it was with flying colors, but I didn't totally bomb either.

Promo Friday - February

It's time for another Promo Friday.

Today, I'm featuring two talented ladies--
Loni Townsend and Elizabeth Seckman.  
I get to brag on two friends with one post. :) 

Loni Townsend, who recently released This World Bites, has been bitten by the publishing bug for sure. Her short story titled Piper is part of the just-released anthology Of Mist and Magic: Really Slow Motion, AND she has a second short story due out in another anthology in early March. Go, Loni!!! :D
