So, this month’s newsletter is going to feature a free short story! This will be a regular thing going forward, aside from the usual news and other freebies offered within.
This month’s short story is called To Kill a Stone. It follows a little boy, his senile grandmother, and little sister, as they try to survive the aftermath of a great cataclysm; but, how did they get there? What secrets does grandma hold in her fading mind? Be sure to check it out!
Lucas Taylor’s world is turned upside down when his friend drags him into a conspiracy that will test the limits of his sanity.
I wanted something a little more rough for the cover of Sighted, like one of those grainy photographs you see of UFO’s or Bigfoot. You know they can’t be real, but there’s always a little part of you that asks: “or can they?” They have this eerie quality to them. You question the details, even though there’s so little detail there. I wanted to capture that feeling.
The logo itself I had outsourced to a friend of mine named Stephanie Mindzak. I think she did a great job on it, and was pleasantly surprised that she brought me something that at once reminds me of the Sightings Logo (which the title of the story is a play on), and the typeface used for Alien.

Sighted is currently in it’s second to last editing phase, and a release date will be announced soon.
