“Life Support” released on Kindle

Long before humanity conquered the stars, there lived a species who could hear the song of the Void. They are all gone now, all except Dern. In a world dominated by the short-lived humans, he makes a living working as a scout for illegal scavengers. He may not fit in, but he knows how to survive.

But if you live a long time, history sooner or later catches up with you.

My very long short story Life Support is now available on Kindle.

At a length of over nine thousand words it is just too long to be published in a magazine and just too short to be a regular novella – which is why I’ve decided to give self-publishing a go. The story is currently priced at 1,40$ (or 0,99€/0,86£, depending on where you’re buying from), which is as low as Amazon will allow it to be.

I’m not expecting to get rich off this, but I would like Life Support to find an audience. It is dear to me, not only because I wrote it, but also because it’s about things that matter to me, things that I believe in. I want people to get to know Dern, to see the world through his eyes, to experience his journey.

So, without further ado, I present Life Support on Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.de and Amazon.com.

And if you liked the story, please feel free to spread the word via Twitter, Facebook, Google+ or any other means of communication that you can come up with. Your support is needed and appreciated.

What I Am Up To (And A Horse)

The Vanishing Horse
I haven’t been doing as much blogging as I want to lately, but that’s mostly because I’m keeping myself fairly busy by working on way too many projects at once.

For one thing I’ve been doing a lot of photography and am currently uploading the fruits of my work on Flickr whenever time permits. (Yes, Flicker has been shamefully neglected too.) Have a look over here.

Of course that’s not the main bulk of what I’m doing. Two bigger projects that are nibbling away at my blogging time are a short story that I’m editing and that will hopefully soon be sent out to various magazines and the graphics for Jonas’s next flash game (and that’s all that I’m saying on that subject, seeing that he hasn’t announced anything yet).

And that’s what I’m up to. Blogging will resume soon, I hope. Rest assured that I haven’t forgotten about the Twilight Experiment and other than that there are several reviews of, how shall I say, works of greater literary merit in the pipeline. And game reviews. And recipes. And lots of photographs. And the cat. You can always write about Cat.
