Book Deal with Angry Robot!

I’m thrilled to share the news that Angry Robot will be publishing my debut novel Implanted, out this August. I’m certain the next few months will be an amazing whirlwind in the lead up to the release.

You can read more about announcement at the Angry Robot homepage. You can also check out the cover and read a little more about my story world over at SFF World. And if you are really interested, Christopher Cornell on the Unreliable Narrators podcast teased a few questions out of me a few weeks ago while I was on there promoting the release of the Abandoned Places anthology from Shohola press.

You can even add the book to your To-Read list on Goodreads if that’s your thing.

All that said, it is an exciting time and I’m looking forward to the next stage on this journey. Accordingly, there will be some changes around here, so I hope you’ll stick around!

New Year, New Words

Can’t believe it’s 2018 already and we’re already well into January. Lots of things to look forward to in the New Year for me and hopefully for you too!

For starters, just before the year-end break, I received my contributor copies for Flame Tree Publishing’s Agents & Spies Short Stories anthology. As with their Heroic Fantasy installment in the Gothic Fantasy series that I contributed a story to, it’s a beautiful volume, with a lovely binding and an eye-catching, embossed design with silver and gold foil stamping.

I’m thrilled to be apart of the collection. Pre-order it through Amazon or Flame Tree Publishing’s website.

In other news, Shohola Press, a new imprint founded by writer friends and all-around amazing people Chris Cornell and George Galuschak, is gearing up for their inaugural release, an anthology of stories, including one of mine!

Abandoned Places is a “tour of the lonely, the rejected and the uninhabited. Featuring stories of fantasy, horror and science fiction by rising new authors and classic tales by familiar names.” To learn more, check out the press release with a list of all the contributors.

And stay tuned to learn more about my story “Glitch” that will become available when the anthology releases March 9, 2018!

New Story Sale!

Happy to announce my short story “Those Who Wear Their White Hair Proudly” will be included in Flame Tree Publishing‘s Heroic Fantasy Short Stories anthology, joining their line of gorgeously bound gothic fantasy collections.

This story is near and dear to my heart, and I’m very grateful it’s found a home. I’ll be sharing more about it closer to when the anthology comes out, scheduled for July.

In the meantime, be sure to check out the other authors in the anthology and join me in drooling over the cover.

New Story Live and More

It’s been an exciting couple of weeks, including lots of travel for a wedding of a good friend and a weekend getaway with my husband that we’ve been pushing off for months because things have been so busy between the two of us. Normally, this time of year is the cause of much anxiety with the relentless march toward the holiday season, but once I get back from World Fantasy next week, I am relatively unscheduled for the rest of the year, something I am very excited about because it means a return to our relatively mundane lives and of course my writing schedule.

I’m also pleased to announce my story “Digital Ligatures” is now live in Issue 31 of The Future Fire, a magazine of social, political, and speculative cyber-fiction. I’m thrilled that my story is illustrated by Martin Hanford, whose work happens to be the cover image as well. So please check out my story as well as the rest of the issue!

In other news, I’ve received copyedits for my story appearing in an anthology set in S.M. Stirling’s Emberverse. You can see the full TOC and cover copy over at Alternate History Weekly Update. And the publisher has passed along the cover as well, so hopefully that will hold you over until the book is available from Penguin/Roc this coming June.

That’s it for me. Happy writing!
