Myspace, Facebook, Twitter and now this. This is of course a blog and I'm pretty sure blogs were around before the rest, but I never had cause to start. I always have things to say, but was pretty sure no one would care.
That hasn't changed much, but I would like to use this blog to discuss both my writing and my magazine Necrotic Tissue.
So this is my first official blog! Try to stay in your seats.
My very first published book is officially out. Feast is a novella (though technically is considered novel by the old standard of a writ en work over 40,000 words). What, me bitter? NANOWRIMO, or national novel writing month considers anything 50,000 and over a novel and the big boys in the publishing biz very by genre and publishing house. For horror, it is usually not a commercially viable novel unless it is at around 80,000 words.
Feast is about 45,000 words. Tim Deal from Shroud Publishing accepted it last year along with five other writers, all better known than I am. I'm proud to be among such writers as Rio Youers, Maurice Broaddus and D. Harlan Wilson.
It is for sale on Shrouds site: www.shroudmagazine.com/feast-by-r-scott-mccoy.html
And Amazon.com. Please type my name into the search field on amazon. I did and it was a hallmark moment in my writing life.
I hope you give it a try and if you like it, please write a review on amazon. Also, let me know what you think of it here.
I'm sure I will fill this blog with sporadic and incomprehensible rants from time to time, so swing by if you have a moment.
