Fox & Willow Kickstarter is Live!

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , | Leave a comment
The Fox & Willow Kickstarter is now live (actually it went live on Tuesday, but I’m silly and forgot to post here…so!) Here’s the linky link -> Kickstarter We’ve been live for only a couple of days and we’re already nearly half-way to our goal amount so I’m utterly thrilled about that – thank you all so much! In the meantime, there’s about 14 hours left if you want to grab the Early Bird pricing on a sweet hard cover edition (with or without signed bookplates) so if this was on your to-do list – go take advantage of it while you can!… Read more

Updates and Upcoming Kickstarter!

Posted in blog | Tagged , , | Leave a comment
*waves* Hi everyone. Remember me? Yes, I’m still here and kicking around. Life has been…crazy since the last time I blogged. Between the pandemic, having my kids stuck at home, having to send my exchange student back to Japan, trying to write, needing my esophagus dilated, having an ovarian cyst rupture and kill my remaining ovary and sending me straight into menopause…well. It’s been a time. Like everyone else, I imagine Radio silence isn’t ideal, I realize, but I’ve just been caught up in the usual whirlwind, which has been complicated by bouts of depression and trying to just keep up with the news in the world as it changes hour by hour. That being said, things have been moving behind the scenes a bit. If you read my post from November or so, you might remember how Fox & Willow’s publication debut was basically dropped due to some major… Read more

A Symphony of Starlight Pre-order

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , | 1 Comment
I meant to get this up days ago, but life got in the way in the form of myriad things like breaking laptops, sick kids, an exchange student, getting trees removed, etc. Life, as they say. But in the meantime, yes SoS is up for pre-order on Amazon and nearly everywhere else. (The ebook, anyway. The print will be out…eventually. Maybe by the end of the month, maybe a little longer.) Release date is October 8, so just a few days away!! Amazon Everywhere else (more options being added shortly)   Other things of interest – Aimo and I are part of a comic Kickstarter that is currently ongoing! It is the Gothic Tales of Haunted Futures and there’s a number of very talented artists and writers taking part! Our tale will deal with a futuristic space port known as New Edo, and the tragic romance of a particular oiran… Read more

CrowdSurfing for CrowdSourcing

One of the things about side projects is that they can have a tendency to cost money. I’m no stranger to that – I ran my gaming forum for nearly 10 years out of my own pocket, to the tune of $400 a year.  I never asked anyone to contribute to it because I never really thought about it. It was my project, and my responsibility and that’s all there was to it. In hindsight, maybe I should have. We talk about what an item’s intrinsic value is, though so much of that is in the eye of the beholder. (Just look at all the crazy stuff people collect – a worthless stuffed toy to you might mean everything to me.) And the same is true for consumed media. Ebooks in particular have been in the thick of it – the argument of whether selling books at .99 is a… Read more

Spellbound and Spindles

Posted in blog | Tagged , , | 2 Comments
Just giving a shout out today to a Kickstarter that I think is worth looking at.  It’s called Spellbound and Spindles and they’re trying to fund a couple of fairy tale anthologies (one for kids and one for adults) featuring a more diverse cast. I’m all about fairy tales and reworking them for today’s world (if I can, I’ll probably look at submitting something to them in the future. My love for The Little Mermaid knows no bounds – even aside from the steampunk retelling in Womanthology, I had at one point envisioned it as a gay story as well, so maybe I’ll take a look at that soon.) The archetypes present in fairy tales – the Good Mother, the Terrible Mother, the Wise Old Man or the Hero – are components that we see in nearly every story – again and again and again. At their core, they are… Read more
