the western ‘across lots’ will be published this month

so the excerpt of the rough draft of what i was working on, which i mentioned here 800 years ago, will be published in the anthology i submitted it for next month. it’s quite violent. i didn’t think they’d accept it. i’ll post more about it when the book is printed.

they also asked for a ‘headshot’ and a bio. naturally, i’m insane and thought about all the scenarios of people knowing what i look like, but then i remembered i’m a viking and i don’t give a fuck. but, i have no pictures of me unless they look like this:


which is a more accurate portrayal of me; note the child’s hand holding a giraffe. his name is wilson.

but, i decided to attempt a nicer photo with things that weren’t pajamas on, and also bigger, nerdier glasses. just in case.

so this is what i got.the real one.JPG


so now you know what i look like. but if you ever see me, i’m dangerous. don’t approach. 🙂

  1. That’s great, Sam. Will the anthology be available online or in print? Be sure to link to it when it is published. I like the shocked tone of your piece, especially, “thrilling the memories a bright black.” And glad to see a couple pictures of mysterious Samantha Lucero!

    1. I think they do online and print. They’re a pretty small company, but hey, something to show my kids. Besides when I finally finish an actually novel. Lol. It ended up being quite violent and longer than I thought it would.

  2. Congratulations!! I love violence, so I’m looking forward to this publication. 😊
