Ursula K. Le Guin has never been on any list of my favorite writers or writerly influences, but she has is both of those. I have read embarrassingly little of her work, if for no other reason than I am that stubborn sort of person who the more you tell me I should do a […]
Boston Travel Thoughts
So I spent a chunk of my weekend in Boston for a friend’s wedding-type thing. Boston reminded me of all the things I love and miss about living in a city, as well as the reasons I love living where I am. There’s just no winning with me. Being in Boston – even as briefly […]
Release Day: What Follows
So today is the release day for an awesome anthology, made more awesome by the fact that is has a story of mine. Check out the Goodreads page with links to your favorite digital formats/retailers. (And I’ve heard a rumor there might be a print-on-demand option coming.) All to ask the burning question: how would […]
Writing Process Blog Hop
My friend Kate (also one of the three of us behind Anxiety Ink) tagged me to participate in a blog hop. I’ve never done one of these before, and it kind of feels like I’m joining a cult. But a fun cult! 1. What are you working on? A rewrite of an urban fantasy novel […]
It’s been a while, but R. B. Wood has a new episode of the Word Count Podcast up, and it just so happens to have a story of mine. Apologies in advance. I was sick when I recorded it, so my voice may not sound quite right. I’ve missed writing different things. Drafting a novel […]
Given the crazy weather lately, it figures that the end of the world should arrive on a day this sunny and (relatively) warm. Seriously, how many times has the world ended over the last few years? Is anyone else finding this a little repetitive? On that note, I would like to announce (for those of […]
Ice! Fire! Lobster!
Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice. This Robert Frost poem — at least, these first two lines of it — have been stuck in my head off and on for at least a year now. Now, I finally have an opportunity to use it! In my last post, I […]
I Survived! And Then Some…
The first week of work happened. (The idea of having a work schedule this regular continues to boggle my mind.) I even managed to write every day! Not a lot, and my time management skills need some serious fine-tuning, but I’ll count that as a total win. In my last post, I mentioned one Kickstarter […]
Reality begins to set in, as the awesome folks over at Fantasy Book Critic have a post up today about our anthology, courtesy of R. B. He goes more in-depth about the genesis of the idea behind Winter in the City and process of getting it to Kickstarter, which has been fascinating and a huge […]
Happy Announcing Day!
. . . It’s still the first of the month, right? Happy All Hallows, happy first day of November, happy first day of NaNo, happy fifth anniversary to me and my husband, and . . . Happy Kickstarter launch day! Don’t know what I’m talking about? That’s ok, because it’s been a Super Secret project […]
