Stories and blog posts, oh my

So, Penumbra is kind of awesome. They bought one of my stories and I wrote two blog posts for them. Not because I needed to write two blog posts. But because I wrote one, thought it was too silly, wrote a second one, and then sent in both. And they decided to use both. For ...

Read one of my stories!

Last year Anotherealm bought one of my short stories, and now it’s published online and available for reading! Go here! I was a bad girl and worked on doing some queries and such today instead of doing my geochemistry homework. Geochemistry this semester is looking pretty interesting, though. The class is actually focused on marine ...

New Spec Tech Article Online!

Actually, it’s been online for a few days, but there was this whole TAM thing (you may have heard of it) and I had no real internet access for four days because the Southpoint Casino is run by vampires1. It’s 1000+ words about tuff, which is a good example of how geology influences culture. And ...

Clarion Write-a-thon Day 2

Today’s word count: 1775Cumulative Write-a-thon word count: 3760 Well, I was hoping to make up for yesterday and failed soundly. Mike was home all day so I didn’t really get anything done then (since having a human person around to interact with is horribly distracting), but figured I’d be able to get in three or ...

Clarion Write-a-thon Day 1

Today’s word count: 1985Cumulative Write-a-thon word count: 1985 Not bad, considering today got off to a very rocky start. I technically didn’t start until just after midnight on the 27th. But it’s still day one as far as my brain is concerned, since I haven’t gone to bed yet. And despite that, I even managed ...

Vote for Me!

Beneath Ceaseless Skies is going to do a best of anthology for their second year, and stories are being chosen for inclusion with a poll. Book of Autumn is eligible, so please consider voting for me. And so I can totally feel like a politician, I’ll ask for some money too while I’m at it! ...

Spec Tech Article Online

When I first joined the SFWA, I admitted on their forums that I’m a geology sort of person. This eventually led me to being contacted by the wonderful lady that runs the Clarion Foundation Blog and offered the chance to write the occasional bit about geology. My first piece is now up over there: The ...

I Will Be Installing a Turbo on My Fountain Pen

From June 26 through August 6 this summer, I will be attempting to complete the rough draft of my current novel-in-progress. I can’t tell you how many words that will end up being, but my guess is I’ll be putting in at least 80,000 words in that six week period. A good portion of this ...

I Wrote a Story!

A story of mine (The Falling Star) got picked up for an anthology that’s now available! The New Fairy Tales Anthology can be bought from Createspace, and because I love you all so very much (or rather, Mike Pennington, the head honcho of Aurora Wolf loves you all so very much), there’s a discount code ...

The Mid-vacation Post

So far, it’s been a nice visit to the UK, which is really no surprise to anyone. Christmas and Boxing Day were big family get togethers, which I enjoyed and only got a little drunk for. My jet lag problem is still present this year, though I think not nearly as obnoxious as it’s been ...
