Short Story Sale!

August 22, 2013

 

The short story Gabrielle Harbowy and I have been writing together, “Skin Deep” has been accepted to the anthology called Carbide Tipped Pens, edited by Eric Choi and Ben Bova, to be published by Tor next year.

Check out the anthology’s Facebook Page to see who else will be in it and keep up with all the news.

The collaboration was my first time co-writing and I was a bit nervous about how it would work out. But it was the perfect team effort, she was strong where I wasn’t, and vice versa. She’s been my editor for two books now and two short stories and it made for a smooth blend of our voices, so that the story has its own unique voice, rather than sounding like two authors’ work cobbled together.

We’re both excited to be a part of Eric and Ben’s anthology. I’ll keep you updated!

ANNOUNCEMENT! When the Hero Comes Home 2

May 1, 2013

When the Hero Comes Home

And I’m in it! I’ve been really excited about announcing the sale of my short story to the upcoming anthology When the Hero Comes Home 2. 

It’s the first hard scifi I’ve sold. And being in When the Villain Comes Home with authors I’ve admired since before I knew I was ever going to share my writing was an amazing experience. So the chance to do it again, to work with Gabrielle Harbowy and Ed Greenwood and see the incredible stories that are going to come from these other authors just tickles me to my toes.

Now I get to be a part of When the Hero Comes Home 2, expected release August 2013.

What Better Way to Celebrate a New Book?

April 2, 2013

Than by drinking and having a party!!

BookLaunch3In all seriousness, what better way to celebrate a new book than by drinking and having a party? Am I right? Or to celebrate the fact that books exist at all!

If you’re a teetotaler, don’t feel left out. Any beverage works, and you can party with us in spirit. To celebrate the Cascade Effect Launch, hosted by Futurecon, Good Times for Good Causes, we’re going to have lots of fun with Booze and a Book!

The kickoff day for Booze and a Book is Friday, April 5, 2013.

Starting that day, and through the weekend, post a picture on our subreddit of yourself (or a friend) with a book and a beverage. If you’re camera shy, post a short description.

The post with the most upvotes by Tuesday April 9 at 8:00 EST will win books and booze!

FG page books(Well, a $25 Amazon gift card and a $25 Visa gift card, because no way are we going to jail for alcohol trafficking or sending alcohol to a minor on the internet who told us he was 35.)

Follow the hashtag on Twitter #boozeandabookday, or join us on reddit.
