News for December!!!

It's been a fun year for my writing.

Most recently:

I have a poem up on the Asimov's magazine website here.

Also, a very nice review of my vampire-fairy novel "Lace" appears here. On that same blog, I also have a guest post and interview. Both appeared this month, December 2015. Thank you to Molly Lolly for having me!

Eldritch Press which published my most recent book of poems this year, "Turn Left at November," went belly up. The book immediately went out of print. So I took it back and re-released it through Eye Scry Publications with a new cover and a much better, more professional interior layout. I am so happy with it. It was only ever available as a paperback. Now it is available as a Kindle and in paper from Amazon. The cover is exactly the feeling I wanted and conveys the themes of the poems within. I couldn't be more pleased.

I also participated in the November NaNoWriMo. For those who don't know what that is, it is a writing challenge where you commit to writing a minimum 1667 words a day to complete a 50k word novel in one month. I managed to finish my new novel "The Moonling Prince" while participating in that challenge. I then discovered that I was not done with those characters, so I am currently in the middle of writing the sequel. That novel has come back (favorably!) from two beta-readers and is now awaiting my final edits. I hope to have it out some time in January 2016, with the sequel to follow shortly after that. Fingers crossed.

I am also putting together a brand new poetry collection of all my newer, more science fiction themed poetry. Working title: Dead Starships. I will have that out in the new year as well.
Winter is here. I am very inspired by the seasons of autumn/winter, so more writing is sure to come!

Happy holidays to all!
