The Runabout Published!

That’s right! The latest adventure in my Diving Universe hit print (and ebook and audiobook) today. You can finally find out what Boss has been doing. If you recall, the novel first appeared in Asimov’s earlier in the summer. That introduced Boss & crew to a brand new audience, as exemplified by Eric Kimminau writing for Tangent Online: Engrossing. Detailed. Imaginative. I had never heard […]

A Binge Reader’s Delight

If you’ve never tried the Diving series or if you haven’t yet sampled my Kristine Grayson Fates series or if you always wanted to try Fiction River, but never had time or if you like the stories you’ve read from the Uncollected Anthology and want to read more of them, then do I have a deal for you.

A Preorder, A Nifty Anthology, and Some Great Reading (Plus A Time-Limited Deal)

Okay, that’s a long title. But I couldn’t come up with anything pithy. As I type this, explosions shaking my house. Not because I’m in some kind of danger or because something bad has happened, but because I live in a tourist town. Here in the States, it’s our national holiday, the Fourth of July, which Americans have celebrated with fireworks since our founding. I […]

Diving News! News for Writers! News For Short Story Lovers!

Yes! News! (And more exclamation points than I probably needed, but still.) For some reason, all of my deadlines piled up in 2017. I spent the first four months in a weird, but efficient frenzy. The only thing that went by the wayside was keeping you all informed of new publications. This, of course, means that the news has piled up as well, and I’m […]

Business Musings: Diving To Freedom

The New Diving Novel Hits Print!

I started writing The Falls to explain sector bases to myself. I figured I had a novella at best, but the story got longer and longer and longer. More characters showed up, and it wasn’t until I was nearly done that I realized why I had to tell this story in this way. Diving fans, you need to read The Falls before you read The […]

Here’s something really fun. The Women in Science Fiction project that I’ve been working on for the last year plus has finally hit print. Yep, you can now […]

A New Diving Universe Novel

The new Diving project turned into a novel. It surprised me, because the novel does not feature Boss. The book takes place at a sector base. I started the entire book as a novella, which I do very often to explain something to myself. But the novella kept going and going and going, and now I have a surprise novel. The Falls will appear in […]
