Devious Plans

Posted by on Sep 28, 2011 | 5 comments

I’m considering putting together an anthology of flash fiction. The idea occurred to me while I was on vacation, somewhere west of Bozeman, Montana, if memory serves. I have a title in mind, but it’s top secret! The subject would be various re-imagined traditional monster stories. I think for balance I would have to limit it to one story per type of monster and that way hopefully I won’t get all vampire stories. Nothing against vampires–you all know I love them–but the point of this would be variety! Cover and editing would be covered by me, of course, but...

Winged Retribution

My dog has a nemesis. I think most dogs have an imposing nemesis, but mine has a squirrel. She’s had a hate-on for squirrels as long as we’ve lived in this new house, but I thought they mostly just ignored her. Yesterday morning though, I caught one of them staring at her from our neighbor’s yard through a hole in the fence. I never ascribed much will or emotion to squirrels before, but I swear this one was giving my dog a dirty look. I mean a really dirty look, the kind that befits the cliché if looks could kill. The squirrel watched her for several seconds as she did her...

Updates, yo

First: As you can probably tell from the picture I’m using, the official release date of the Snowbunny Anthology has been announced as August 29th! It make take a day or more to be visible for purchase, but I’ll post links once it is officially buyable. I’ve read the stories and they are an eclectic collection: a bit of strange, a bit of funny, and a bit of sweet. I am so proud to be among the authors chosen. Second: I just got my first set of comments back from my editor on Broods 0f Fenrir. She had a lot to say about it. I won’t go into too much detail, but she...

New, Exciting, and Awesome

Posted by on Aug 11, 2011 | 7 comments

Hey guys, what’s shakin’? I thought I’d give you a heads up about what’s new and exciting in my world. There’s a five-pointed list. Count ’em down with me. First! I submitted my first story to an actual paying market. Hooray! I also sustained my first rejection. Boo! I guess there’s a small hooray there too, because I survived. I’m actually working a few short stories at once right now. I’d intended to submit one of them to Writers of the Future this quarter, but I can’t seem to put a finish on any of them right now. I’ll see...

To Research, Or Not To Research

Posted by on Jul 21, 2011 | 10 comments

I’m a compulsive researcher. I research random things all the time. Something occurs to me during the day, and ten seconds later I’m on Google digging through links trying to find out what the biggest frog is or something equally as pointless. So, it should come as no surprise that, to me, one of the best things about writing is the research. My first novel, Broods of Fenrir, is currently with a second set of beta readers and will be sent off to my editor in early August. I did a lot of research for this book, more than Urban Fantasy should reasonably require. The allure of...

Happy Day!

As some of you might remember, my recent love of flash fiction began when I wrote a story for an anthology calling for submissions at one of my favorite haunts, Kindleboards. I found out last night that my story was accepted! I’m so thrilled. I can’t even wrap my head around the idea that my story is going to be published alongside of some of those other authors. The story is titled “Love in a Time of Bunnies” and it is a humorous, sweet romance set during a Bunnypocalypse. Proceeds from this anthology will be donated to an animal charity (I don’t think...
