On the blog, that is.
I realized I hadn’t updated this thing in months, which was a strange feeling on top of many others that have been rampant these pandemic years. I’ve been posting here (or on the blogspot that preceded it) since 2010 (!), and I don’t think I’ve taken a break this long ever before.
Strange times, indeed.
In my last post Reprint-palooza, I shared the news that a number of stories were being reprinted, breathing new life into old words. I can’t tell you how gratifying that feels, to know your stories have value even after the newness has faded.
On top of that, Implanted, my cyberpunk meets solarpunk / spy-fi meets cli-fi novel was named a definitive work of climate fiction by Grist.org, which was also a great feeling. Be sure to check out the full list and perhaps find a new read to get inspired to face our collective future.
Finally, I’m thrilled to announce my short story “Gray Rock Method” will appear in Chromophobia: A Strangehouse Anthology by Women in Horror from Rooster Republic Press and edited by powerhouse Sara Tantlinger. I got my acceptance just before the holidays and it was a much-needed boon to close out the year. The story is also my first foray into horror and was a lot of fun to write. The anthology comes out later this year and is already garnering a bit of buzz in horror circles. You can check out the contributors and learn how to preorder the collection here. And of course I’ll be posting more information as we get closer to the release date.
That’s it for now. I hope the New Year is off to a better start for you than it has been for me!
