“Counterclockwise” Now Up at IGMS!

My alternate-reality-time-travel-romance “Counterclockwise” is now live over at Orson Scott Card’s Intergalactic Medicine Show — just in time for Guy Fawkes Day!

I’m also honored to be in the sixth anniversary issue. Happy anniversary, IGMS!

Yes, I know it’s only an excerpt — just splurge for the subscription, folks. This is a really great magazine. I promise you, it’s worth it. And what an awesome illustration I got from the fabulous Kevin Wasden, right? What’s even more clever is how it changes throughout the story. (Which you can only see if you buy a subscription!)

I wrote my “origin” story and sent it in today — it will be posted over at SideShow Freaks in the very near future.I mean near like…before or on Guy Fawkes Day.

And because Guy Fawkes Day plays such a huge part in this story, I will be posting (password-protected for those who don’t like spoilers) a deleted scene from the original ending of the story ON GUY FAWKES DAY.

If you liked the movie “Somewhere in Time,” you’ll like this story. If you read it, I’d love to hear what you think! Email me: akontis at gmail dot com! xox
