Every few years, Dean and I teach workshops for professional writers who are either at the beginning of their careers (in other words, a few things sold) or at a crossroads in their careers (stuck in the same spot, unable to sell any more or just plain frustrated by the business). This is one of those teaching years. I’ve posted a list of the workshops on its own page. If you’re interested in any of them, contact my husband Dean Wesley Smith through his website at www.deanwesleysmith.com.
A New Science Fiction Story!
Asimov's has just published my first sentient ship story, "Matilda."
A New Fantasy Story!
New Romantic Fantasy Short Story!
I love taking part in the Uncollected Anthology of Urban Fantasy. Every quarter, we put out individual stories on the same theme (hence "anthology" and "uncollected"). This time, Dayle Dermatis, Anthea Sharp, and Leah Cutter have joined me in this paranormal romance/urban fantasy "anthology."
