You can make a profit from Twitter

I neglected to mention this before, but a little while ago a wrote a short “prose poem” specifically for Jetse de Vries’ Twitter project, Outshine. Apparently he liked it, because he offered me money for it. It’s only 14 words, but with the payment that comes out to more than 35 cents per word and that’s the highest I’m likely to ever be paid for a piece of short fiction.

I’m not sure when it will appear, but I will link to it when it does.

I find the whole concept of Twitter “fiction” fascinating, as well as other nano-forms, and I like what Jetse’s been doing.

I may have to put something together for his Shine anthology, too, now…

Rising Tide -Out now!


Rising Tide, the sequel to Falling Sky, was released on October 6, 2015. Publisher's Weekly said, "Khanna crafts a terrifyingly dismal picture of the future, raising the stakes by gradually stripping Ben of friends and support while throwing him into increasingly dire situations. His worldbuilding remains solid and unsettling, and he never loses sight of the human element. The cliffhanger ending is sure to leave readers on the edges of their seats, panting for resolution."

Falling Sky – Out now!


Falling Sky, my first novel, came out October 7, 2014 from Pyr. It's an adventure story set in a post-apocalyptic future with airships. Publisher's Weekly called it a "solid and memorable debut" while Library Journal gave it a starred review and named it Debut of the Month. For more information, please click here.
