Feast Your Eyes: Heartsnare’s Cover Revealed!

17 Jan , 2014  

Heartsnare by Steven B. Williams

I’ve been teasing this for a long time but I’m finally in place to move forward on my novel. It’s been a busy few years, but this novel has been my labour of agape and I’m really glad to say soon–oh, very soon, yes–I shall be able to share it with you.

Those of you who have bought Her Mother’s Eyes (available here) will already have seen the cover, but this is the first time I’ve shared it with a wider audience. I hope you love it as much as I do.

13 Jan , 2014  

Over the past few weeks I’ve been publishing microfiction. These pieces are stories in themselves, some funny, others weepy, all of them lovingly crafted. As some of you had guessed though, there is a larger narrative at work. With me having had a break for the holidays, now is as good a time as any to catch up on the story.

Below, in order from most recent, is the story so far:
