New Cover: Serpents' Souls & Dragons' Hearts as C.M. Simpson

I have a new short story coming out on December 1st, a dark science fiction tale called Serpents' Souls & Dragons' Hearts. It revisits the characters from The Reptiles' Blade, but occurs some years later. Here is the cover that came in, today.




Mankind has legends of intelligent serpents, dragons and vampires in almost every culture, and now mankind is out amongst the stars. When an emergent psi of lizardine-human descent dreams of a many-legged threat and serpents walking the skies, mankind might just have a chance to discover those legends made real.

I've been a little bit swamped, but I've managed a walk every day, and done some incidental pokemonning. This was not a bad way to start the morning:



Just Released Wheelchair Mermaid as Carlie Simonsen

Wheelchair Mermaid is now out on Smashwords, Amazon, and DriveThruFiction, as well as being distributed via Draft2Digital. It will also be available in paperback shortly, and that is being distributed via CreateSpace, so yay!


All Stacey wants is a morning on the beach—okay, and maybe to surf again. Like that’s ever going to happen, but a morning on the beach, on her own, as close to the waves as she’ll ever get, again, will do. It’s just that when something swims under the jetty, and a speedboat full of dangerous-looking men arrives on the beach shortly after, she has to do something. Right? Wheelchair or not, right? And that’s when life really starts to get interesting…


Wheelchair Mermaid is the fourth book in the Wheelchair Adventures series, which is based around young people getting their wheels underneath them, after they find themselves in wheelchairs.

Just Released: Cloud Door

Happy to say that my science fiction short story, Cloud Door, has just been released as a stand-alone ebook. It's available from Smashwords, DriveThruFiction, and Amazon, and via Draft2Digital distribution, and will be included in the collection of 2017's short work due to be released mid- to late- next year. Cloud Door is a precursor to two novels set in the Mack 'n' Me universe: Mack 'n' Me and Arach.

So, we’ve done this job, and I’m checking our tails are clear, and I find they’re not—and then I find the only way to kick clear is to find the Cloud Door. Only trouble is the Cloud Door’s a legend, and Mack? Well, he’s not too fond of chasing legends. Fortunately, this one’s a no-brainer: we want to live, and that’s got to be enough to make anyone chase a legend, right?
