Dragging Bones from the Ocean (CHM #43 Jan 2024)

n January 2024, “Dragging Bones from the Ocean” was published in Cosmic Monthly Horror Issue #43. A ghost ship tells the story of his last voyage. Growing out of the hubris of men, hatred and evil enveloped the vessel and humanity. I wrote the first draft as a prologue for a trunked manuscript, a 90K word speculative novel that garnered full-requests from agents but ultimately didn’t secure representation. Upward and onward! So, even as I archived 87K words, I kept re-fining the ghost ship story. Read more about lessons I learned from the 2 years it took to draft and publish on medium.
