Historical Accuracy in Works of Fiction

A week or so ago, a contributor submitted a work of historical fiction that had an error in it that was obvious to me, though it probably wasn’t to a lot of readers. I replied that I would reconsider the work (it was nicely written and had a good plot and ending) if he would…

Rights and the Small Publisher

Last night, I posted a rather lengthy comment to a post in Lit Mag News about rights and reprints. It was so long that I thought it would be a shame for it to be seen only there and so I thought I would post an expanded and refined version here for your enjoyment and…

Bio

While I have always enjoyed reading, writing has been another matter. Over the years, my various careers have necessitated that I write professionally. As a byproduct of this, I have developed a taste for writing as well as reading fiction. My published works so far have been short stories and poems, but I am now working on a play and two novels, which I hope will be completed before long.

In late 2015, I founded the Farmington (New Mexico) Writers’ Circle, which focuses on the publicity and marketing of writers works, rather than on the art of writing.

In December 2020, I resurrected a long-dead project of establishing an online magazine called The Chamber.  It has been steadily growing since them and as of August, 2022, it has had over 50,000 hits. Contributors and readers come from around the world with some, like Niles Reddick (England) and Marcelo Medone (Argentina) being established, professional authors. 

In 2021, I started Slattery Publishing to bring several of my endeavors under one roof. Currently, Slattery Publishing publishes only my own works and blank notebooks (with beautiful covers) via Amazon.  Hopefully, production will expand one day to include other works. Go to the Books link on the website’s homepage to see what is available.

I can be found on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and LinkedIn, and elsewhere but this is my primary website/weblog.

You can also find me on Goodreads.

  1. I really like your wordpress page, very friendly, intriguing. Thanks for being so generous with your information and sharing! I too love horror. Brian Evenson. Is writing some of the greatest horror of our day. His ability to utilize perception, perspectives, telling a story from many points of view, or from unconventional points of view – to bring about the psychological commentary – the reflection of experience in disproportion to societal-realities. His writing, is masterful. – Check him out.

  3. Horror… I have to dabble on that for sure. And we have another thing in common, both have been in the military. Although I just got to corporal in the infantry, I hate water and boats. You’re very educated man and obviously very qualified for this job, and I also had to add that the last comment that this Jacque Walker said, it was kind of weird. But since you write horror,….that comment might actually give me and idea to write about.
