"Splintered Sacrifice" to be Published

Long Story Short has accepted another speculative fiction story that I wrote, this one will be published in their November issue. I'm very pleased to be gaining more fiction credits. Once I am finished working full time at the factory job I've been doing for the past 4-1/2 months, I am planning to focus on writing again. But, in the mean time dear readers, you will enjoy this story about a tree who makes its ultimate sacrifice.

WELCOME TO THE WRITING SITE OF SCOTT APPLETON

"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." -Proverbs 16:24

In a world where morality is forsaken and Christ neglected, wholesome books are uncommon. The themes of my writing are love, self-sacrifice, and honor.

I see my generation turning from God to the gods of this world. I see homes torn apart in the pursuit of pleasure and self-gratification. Children are murdered by the millions every year . . . without ever seeing the world outside their mothers' wombs. Through fiction I strive to encourage those who are willing, to stand against these things and be heroes and heroines; chivalrous, gentle, full of righteous indignation, and the fear and love of their Creator.
