Recommended Reading List: October, 2017

I’m line editing another Fiction River, so some of my reading time has been taken up with that. And I had a workshop at the end of the month, the Business Master Class, which kept us all going 24/7 (okay, there was a little sleeping in the middle of it all). So less reading time than I wanted. Of course, there’s always less reading time […]

Free Fiction Monday: Ghosting

Cudahay tracks ghosts. Not the ethereal kind. The regret-dating-you-so-they-disappear kind. He makes a business out of it with his partner, Serena. She deals with the losers and their sob stories, he tracks down the rather-not-be-found to provide proof of life so the losers can move on.

When a real ghost from Cudahay’s past turns the tables and tracks him, however, Cudahay must decide just how seriously to take the threat. Cudahay doesn’t scare easily. But he soon discovers that perhaps he should.

“Ghosting,” by New York Times bestselling author Kristine Kathryn Rusch, is free on this website for one week only.

Business Musings: Pulphouse, Alternate History, & the Modern Era

  When you come to my website right now, it’s rather hard to ignore the fact that we’re running a Kickstarter. I have a Kickstarter widget tracking our progress in real time, and I blogged about the Kickstarter on Friday. The Kickstarter will help us revive Pulphouse Fiction Magazine, which we stopped publishing 21 years ago, when we shut down Pulphouse Publishing. Dean has talked […]

Catching Up On Publications

Because my life has been unbelievably hectic this past month or two, I wasn’t able to update you on my latest publications as I promised I would. I have had several—although not as many as I will have this fall. So in no particular order, let me share the recent publications.   The latest Uncollected Anthology, Mystical Melodies,  hit the virtual stands last month. My new […]

An Eclipse, Thrills, and a Touch of the Fantastic

I don’t know about all of you, but I’m getting a lot of reading done this summer. I suspect I might get even more done on August 21, since my hometown, Lincoln City, Oregon, is the first place the eclipse makes landfall, the experts predict we’ll have internet outages, power outages, and cell phone outages because of all the visitors taxing systems not meant to […]

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. (Imagine me twisting a handlebar mustache here.) […]

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 […]

Romance, Pen Names, and a Reminder

If you’re a regular reader of my Recommended Reading List, you know that I love romance novels. It took me years to screw up my courage to write a romance novel, and then I stumbled into the genre somewhat accidentally. I wrote goofy paranormal romances as Kristine Grayson. I’ve also written a couple of romances that aren’t goofy or paranormal as Kristine Kathryn Rusch. While […]

Recommended Reading List: May, 2017

It took nearly half the month before I had anything to recommend, even though I’ve been reading like crazy. That’s unusual for me. Usually I find something I like enough to share with all y’all. This time, my problem wasn’t that I read bad stuff. I was reading forgettable stuff. As in, I couldn’t remember what was happening when I picked the book up again. […]

The Moon in June

I’m particularly fond of June. I entered the world in June many decades ago, and as a result, I feel like it’s my month. I think I’d like the month even without the personal resonance: June contains the longest days of the year (in my hemisphere, at least) and, in the Pacific Northwest, is the beginning of our clearest, most rainfree season. Which means here […]
