Almost two years ago my friend Matthew Wayne Selznick released an anthology called The Sovereign Era: Year One. I was thrilled to have my first published short story be in this anthology. I recommend the anthology highly, along with Matthew’s novel Brave Men Run, the “universe” in which my story takes place. But a couple of days ago Matt released my story as a standalone e-book product. See the description below for more info (text from Matthew’s website).
It’s classified as a short story, but it weighs in at around 8K. Long enough to be called a “novella?” Maybe not. But definitely a good lengthy read for those that missed it when the anthology came out.
“Every Breath You Take” by P. G. Holyfield
P. G. Holyfield is the author of the award-winning fantasy mystery “Murder at Avedon Hill,” a podcaster, and speaks at many conventions in the science fiction and new media fandom community. His “Every Breath You Take” has the distinction of being the single longest piece of Sovereign Era fiction to date (not counting “Brave Men Run — A Novel of the Sovereign Era.”)
“Every Breath You Take” is a tale of teen aggression and obsession. Chris has it bad for Stacey… but in a world where thousands of people possess unique, incredible powers, what exactly stands in the way of Chris getting what he wants..?
