My first work—a trilogy published with Beaten Track in January this year—made me a top 20 science fiction author for the LGBT category. My first ever submission to a writing competition, the annual flash fiction contest, is included with the best-seller anthology of 120 finalists out of 255 entries for 2019. I’m very glad you’re here, and I’m ambitious but I can’t do this without you so please do get my news so you know what I’m releasing next, and who it’s with.

September 2019:

Barton has written something…fascinating… [It’s] sneaky [and,] for a debut…, Brobots is a very good read, especially considering its ambitious content. – Ben Ragunton for On social media he adds, ‘It’s deep, at times somewhat profound, and also very touching.’

July 2019:

Migration Queer Sci FiRead my short story ‘Elvira’ in the sixth annual flash fiction contest anthology for, ‘Migration’. Submissions had to have LGBT elements, believable characters, and fit within a word limit of a mere 300 words. It’s the first time I’ve entered, so I’m delighted to have my work included in the panel’s top 120 selected and a book in the top 10 for its category. Released July, 2019.

Praise for Trevor Barton

“…be in awe of the brilliance that is Trevor Barton, who is quickly making it to the top of my favorites list.” – W.C. Bitner, Jr. (a Netgalley reviewer, USA)

“Impressed…Straightforward [and] practically perfect.” – Publisher (ret.)
