Good morning, friends and fiends! Today is launch day for TERRACE V: PENITENT’S GOLD, wherein you’ll find my latest short story, “The Envoy’s Blessing!”

For those of you who preordered the ebook, it may already be on your device! And I know a few folks who preordered the paperback have already received (and read) their copies. On behalf of the folks at The Seventh Terrace, who have been a treat to work with on this project, thank you!

This marks my first piece of fiction to see release since PRAIRIE GOTHIC dropped in late 2020. It’s not that I haven’t been writing, but between becoming a father and working on-site through the worst of the pandemic and going back to school, my writing time has been in short supply over these last few years. I’ve finished a few other short stories which are out there in various submission trenches, and I am still plugging away on my second novel.

In the meantime, it feels great to have this one out in the world. I’m pretty darn proud of this story, and I sure do hope you’ll like it.

Chris Patrick Carolan is an author, editor, and hovercraft enthusiast, originally from Glasgow but now based in Calgary, Alberta. He writes science fiction, fantasy (urban and epic), and steampunk, though he has also been known to turn to crime to make ends meet. Crime fiction, that is. His first novel, THE NIGHTSHADE CABAL, was published by Parliament House Press in 2020, and was a finalist for the Crime Writers of Canada Awards of Excellence ‘Best First Novel’ award. He can be found on Twitter as @cpcwrites but – consider this fair warning – it’s mostly wisecracks about McNuggets.
