Things of Mine Wot You Should Read in May 2

I have two new short stories out, because I am living the dream! First off, go to Scigentasy and read What Purpose a Heart. Because it is painfully obvious that your morning doesn’t contain nearly enough space opera, ship to ship battles, or lesbians. I’m even more excited because the artwork Scigentasy put with this story ...

[Ask a Geologist] Huge Tracts of Land 6

This should probably be more appropriately titled “Ask a Lady Geologist” but we all know I hate that term. But this is also not about the geology so much as the real estate. You know, boobs. Okay, so a dear friend of mine mentioned a descriptive phrase for body position oft-used in our genre: “She ...

I wrote a story! The Heart-Beat Escapement (and a little bonus) 4

I have a new story out today from Crossed Genres: The Heart-Beat Escapement Please read and enjoy! This story is one that went through a lot of drafts–nine in total. It started out about 1500 words longer than it is now. Something about the way Greensmith says but grates. “I already know that,” Owen snaps. ...

Award Eligible Stories (Published in 2013)

Yes, it’s that time of year again, where I make googly eyes at you and hope you’ll keep me in mind for various awards. 2013 was a very good year for me–I have nine stories that are eligible! Note: I had my first pro sale in 2010. I am not Campbell eligible, just in case ...

2013: Writing Year in Review

Written This Year Novels: Still zero. I’ve been plugging away at King’s Hand, but with my other projects that had actual deadlines and finishing up grad school, I didn’t manage to finish anything novel length. Ugh. However, I did full edits (content + line editing) on both Throne of Nightmares and Fire in the Belly so I’ll be ready ...

Yes, I am trying to destroy science fiction, thank you for noticing. 12

God, what does a woman have to do around the internet to get her heathen liberal-fascist* feminazi reverse racist anarcho homosexual agenda aimed at the complete destruction of a literary genre noticed? I was about to start setting shit on fire, I fucking swear. But it’s okay, guys! Senpai noticed me! (Okay, and a lot ...

Fanfic < "Real" fiction? 2

Okay, darlings, I’m getting just a little tired of this shit. Since a thing involving fanfiction happened of course we’re up for another round of arguing about the “worth” of fanfic. Because what is the internet for if not being a long distance dick about things other people like? Well, let Evil Auntie Rachael lay ...

It’s a cover! 4

Yes, the next novella (and the last one for this year) now has a cover! I’m really pleased with how this one turned out, and had a lot of fun writing the novella. It’s coming soon–November 1! GET READY!

The Kobo UK splashzone (dude, where’s my ebook?) 1

Okay, so a thing happened: WH Smith has taken their site offline after discovering that there’s some grody self-published erotica in its catalog. As of this time, they’re still offline. WH Smith apparently partners with Kobo. Oh and, from the WH Smith holding page: Our website will become live again once all self published eBooks ...

Writing Update #2: New stuff for you to read!

On with the show! First off, Blood in Elk Creek is out! Buy it from the vendor of your choice! You can’t go wrong with snark and zombies in the Black Hills. Another story of mine is out, this one free to read: Stranger, from Silver Blade Karen over at Unfiltered Speech in a Politically Correct ...
