A Literary Community Learning from One Another

I haven't taken a lot of time to write about what I've been doing because I've been doing it. Finally, I may see a breathing space and I can report that the LWG Anthology II of The Litchfield Writers Guild is about to become reality, hopefully by the end of September, 2010. It is a book of stories, vignettes, poems and interesting memoirs compiled and edited by me on behalf of the group. Coincidentally, I have finished work on The Mission, a post apocalypse adventure novel that uniquely answers questions generated by nuclear holocaust, the final statement of a world gone mad. The one hundred survivors decide, if humanity is to continue, that human nature must change. The road to the answer encompasses the entire novel. I hope to have copies available for my day at the Big-E.

I haven't commented for years and that doesn't bring anybody up-to-date. At this point I can say that the LWG Anthology II did publish in 2010 and a third anthology, LWG Anthology III published in 2104. In my capacity as President and Moderator of The Litchfield Writers Guild (since 2003), my group is working toward an LWG Anthology IV. It should publish in mid 2017, give or take. We are currently writing original stories, the best of which will be included in the upcoming Anthology. The Mission, my third complete novel, published in 2010 and is available on Amazon, along with my original novel, I Wish I May, A Tale of the Fourth Millennium (2002) and Moonlight Man, 2009.

In October of 2015 I began publishing my short stories on a blog attached to my website, www.richardObenton.com. To access, go to my site and scroll down to Posts. My decision to do the blog supersedes my original thought of publishing several collections of stories in at least four books. Making them available on the Internet through my blog is more immediate and gratifying. My information on short story collections is that they don't sell well. I am more interested in making my stories available for readers to enjoy than I am in profiting from them, so here they are, and also on Facebook, Twitter and Linked-In.
