Hello and welcome to Today’s Chapter, the online home of author Craig Anderson. Please make sure you take off your virtual shoes before taking a look around. As we’re friends, I’m going to switch to first person.

You can find out more about my published books in the books section. I write across a wide variety of genres, from satire to sci-fi and back again. My writing has a universal theme of normal people in tough situations trying to figure their way out of it, whether it’s a homeless man infected with concentrated karma or a clone fighting for survival in a prison colony.

I am also a big fan of short stories, which I post sporadically on the website for free. These are often ideas that need a bit of breathing room, but don’t have the legs for a full length novel or novella. At least two of my books started out this way (I just forgot to stop writing!) I have a real soft spot for flash fiction, which is how I started taking my writing more seriously. I’ve been included in two flash anthologies with my good friends the Flashdogs and there is a large archive of over 100 flash fiction stories on the site if you have an afternoon to kill.

If you’d like to learn more about me as an author, check out the About page. There are all kinds of fun facts including a timeline of my writing to date.

Enjoy!

Book Promotion Experiment

As I mentioned previously it doesn't necessarily make financial sense to extensively market your first book. However, when you have two or three books in a series the financials start to add up a little more. This leaves the million dollar question as to how to spend...
