  • “Digital Pyre”: Little Blue Marble

    “Digital Pyre”: Little Blue Marble

    “Digital Pyre” is online at Little Blue Marble. I used to be an archivist; some of my work involved digitizing materials. There are constant sighs (or screams) within the field at the assumption that archivists should digitize everything. Professionally speaking, throwing things away is an important function. We’re living in an era of ubiquitous information. […]

    Anthology release day

    Eighteen: Stories of Mischief and Mayhem is now officially available, in trade paperback and ebook formats, from the usual bookseller suspects. (The publisher’s page has links.)

    It’s time for updates on Community of Magic Pens, edited by E.D.E. Bell, coming in May from Atthis Arts (and available for preorder now). The cover art was revealed, in a low-key fashion, on Twitter. It’s by Journey, a young Detroit-based artist. (She also produced artwork for the Kickstarter campaign.) It’s happy and charming and […]

  • First pro sale

    First pro sale

    I made my first sale to a pro market this week. I am incredibly pleased. Obviously, money doesn’t equal quality, “pro rates” are still laughably low, etc., etc. But what I write is largely recognizable as belonging to commercial genres, and well-resourced publications attract talent. Making it to the second round of consideration in pro […]

  • Corvid Queen

    Corvid Queen

    My short story “Changeling” will be published in Corvid Queen next August. I have a soft spot for folklore, count myself a feminist, and think corvids are pretty cool, so I’m pleased a story has settled here.
