I haven't given up writing, or abandoned you. I'm writing more than ever. I'm just submitting all my new stories to magazines, journals, ezines, and reviews instead of putting them up here, in addition to working on a few longer works.
I will have a newly published short story to share with you in the next day or so. A few more will be coming shortly thereafter, and I just got word about an hour ago that you can expect a poem of mine to be published in the near future, as well. I will share the links to these sites with all of you as they become available. In the meantime, you can find and read all of my previously published stories here: (Troy Blackford's Published Short Stores) and find out where to grab my brand-new-as-of-today audiobook collection 'They Who Cry Out Seek to be Heard' right here: (They Who Cry Out Seek to be Heard Info Post).
I'm working hard to get as much new stuff of high quality written and sent off in the hopes of publication. In addition to links to the ones already accepted and in the process of coming out, I'm going to put out a few longer things myself by the middle of the summer for everybody, so hold tight. A pile of stories are on the way!
