An update!

Wow, I can’t believe I haven’t had a thing to say since September. But a lot has been going on, so I thought I’d take a moment to let everyone know about the latest news.

The biggest news has to do with two anthologies: We Shall Be Monsters by Renaissance Press and Dread Naught but Time, the second Scribes Divided Anthology. The former should be out either this month or December – I am actually just looking at the final proofs right now. And the latter finally has a release date set: mark your calendars for November 27th!

The other main thing of note is that I’ve been participating in NaNoWriMo this year. However, I’ve found that for me, the 50K goal doesn’t really work, so I am rebelling and just trying to get a first draft of a romance novella as close to finished as possible. Things have been going quite well with it and I look forward to telling you more about that soon.

That’s all for now but I hope to get back into the blogging spirit soon 🙂

I’m still alive – and preparing for a writing weekend

It’s been a bit quiet around here lately, for a variety of reasons. The primary one is that I just finished up editing a book for the amazing Renaissance Press, which took up a good portion of my free time that would otherwise be spent writing things like blog posts.

The other reason is that I finally caught up watching Star Trek: Discovery and proceeded to fall down a fandom rabbit hole. I’m still not quite back from that one but I’m not staying up to 1AM reading fan fiction at this point (mostly because I’ve read all the Lorca/Cornwell fic on AO3 at this point).

To mark my return to the land of the writers, I am partaking on a four-day writing weekend, as well as celebrating Canada Day from the safety of my air conditioned basement. My goal for the weekend is to finish up some of the projects that I’ve had on the go for far too long. I also am giving myself an arbitrary word count goal because that’s easier to track and share. I am usually not great at meeting such goals but I’ll be doing my best, so wish me luck!

We Shall Be Monsters

To celebrate the 200th anniversary of Frankenstein‘s publication, Renaissance Press is releasing We Shall Be Monsters, an anthology of short stories from a diverse group of authors, many of whom represent marginalized voices. I am excited to announce that one of my stories, “Mother Monster,” will be included in the collection.

There is currently a Kickstarter running to support the project, please check it out.
