Happy Halloween! Long time no blog and all that, as per my usual, but to be fair I did have some real life issues over the last couple of months that took priority, including the unexpected passing my uncle, the start of the school year for the kids, etc etc. It’s always something. That being said, I’m super happy to announce I’ve got a short story in the new Tales From the Lake anthology! (Out Friday, link down below!) It’s my first real foray into writing horror, though it may be less horror and more disturbing melancholia, but in either case I’m super proud of it. So please check it out if you’re so inclined! (Especially if you’re into twisted mermaid tales). My particular story is titled A Dream Most Ancient and Alone, and it’s about a lake mermaid with a penchant for eating children, who forms a tenuous friendship with… Read more
Hey guys – I have drawn the winners for the Magpie’s Fall giveaway, thanks to RaffleCopter and its random generator. (In the past I used to have my hedgehog pick the winners, but alas, poor Tumbleweed has been gone for quite a while, so this will have to do. ) Two winners were drawn and emails were sent , so check your inboxes. And if you really want to be sure, I also notified the winners in the comments in the previous post, so feel free to check there as well – I really loved reading everyone’s comments about their summers. If you didn’t win – no worries – I’ll probably do another giveaway in a bit – also if you are in the Baltimore area in November, I will be at World Fantasy Con and I believe there is a book signing on Friday night, so I’ll have my… Read more
It’s my birthday next week, but I figured I’d celebrate by doing a giveaway of my own here. Basically, two winners – your choice of a signed copy of either Magpie’s Song or Magpie’s Fall, whichever you like. Open worldwide. (Prefer an ebook? I can do that too – just let me know!) Contest will end next Wednesday (my bday, yo) and I’ll do the drawing on Thursday. Prizes mailed out shortly after that. Look how pretty!! –> So how do you enter? Easy way is in the comments below – I had a pretty crazy summer – so tell me something good that happened and share the love. The rest of the options – the tweets and the FB page stuff are just extras to earn you extra chances. Also the newsletter – I don’t send out a lot of stuff on it, but it’s worth an extra… Read more
Ha, as the worst author ever, I actually managed to forget my own release date, but huzzah, the ebook for Magpie’s Fall is officially out! Kindle Everywhere else! Print is coming – it’s been uploaded and whatnot but I ran out of time to finalize it. I’ve ordered proofs but I won’t get them before I leave for Japan and I’d rather wait until I get back to approve them as opposed to putting it on sale now in case there is something wrong with it and making readers angry. But hey – to make up for it, here is the totally awesome cover! Review copies? Well, I’m not putting MF up on NetGalley this time around, so if you’re a reviewer you’re going to have to contact me directly. Reason being is 1) I just ran out of time and 2) to be frank, it was pirated from NetGalley… Read more
So if you’ve been following me on social media at all, you’ve probably realized I’m about to pack my bags and head off to Japan for a few weeks. It’s mostly a family vacation thing – partially “I’ve always wanted to go there” and partially a little live research. (I’ve been doing a lot of historical sleuthing on the Edo period Yoshiwara – not because I want to romanticize it in any way, but it is rather fascinating, if somewhat depressing.) I don’t know if I’m going to set a historical story there or just borrow elements for something more fantasy based, but I figure getting to see some of it directly will be very helpful. (I have very mixed feelings about utilizing another culture in fantasy settings anyway – probably best for another post, but at any rate more research of any sort can’t hurt at all.) We’ll be… Read more
