Some writerly things happening in my life.
Love Like Chocolate is out!
I’m thrilled to announce that my short story “Love Like Chocolate” is in Cossmass Infinities issue 9.
The cover image is an astronaut in a white and teal suit climbing up a long flight of green-covered stairs, under large green circular arches, towards a circular electrical portal. Writers in this issue include B. Morris Allen, Melanie Bell, P. A. Cornell, Daniel Delgado, Kit Harding, Michael James, M. Legree, Claire McEnerney, Mere Rain, Tina S. Zhu, Carol Scheina, Matt Tighe, and Lucy Zhang.
First Promise is out!
I’m happy to announce my short story “The First Promise We Break” is in Apex Magazine issue 130, and the online version was released March 8, 2022!
The cover image is an art piece of a gray-striped humanoid figure, reminiscent of an android, sitting on a stack of books, with a bright orange-gold sun stencil in its head and the same orange-gold color seeming to seep out of a hole in the center of its chest. The same gold is also dripping from the end of a pen-like object held in its right hand, above a large book with glowing yellow-gold pages. Art by J.R. Slattum.
Apparently I’m eligible for awards?
“Endless Blue” is eligible for Hugo, Nebula, and other fantasy-friendly awards. I write about it a bit here.
“Endless Blue” out now
My story “Endless Blue” is one of the stories in this amazing fairy tale mashup anthology, the third in the series. My story is a retelling of George McDonald’s “The Day Boy and the Night Girl” – my favorite of all fairy tales – combined with Grimm’s “The Blue Light.” I enjoyed writing this so much, and am thrilled it’s now in the world. Upon a Thrice Time is only available in print from Air and Nothingness Press via that link, due to limited print runs.
