First, my latest Uncollected Anthology story just appeared. Over a year ago, the women of the Uncollected Anthology picked the topics for 2016, and included Fortune Tales in […]

Slacker Woman’s News Post

Okay, I’m not completely a slacker. But I’ve been slow in updating you on all that’s been going on. That’s partly because I’ve been writing a Diving Universe novel that kicked my butt all winter. I finished draft one yesterday. Yes, I said Diving Universe. I started out writing a novella to explain something to myself, and ended up with at least 100,000 words. (That’s […]

Recommended Reading List: March, 2015

I had such hopes for March. We held the anthology workshop during the first week, so all of my reading that week was review. Afterwards, I had to line edit two volumes of Fiction River, so that took some of my reading time. (If you want to see all the reading I do on Fiction River, take a look at Fiction River: Risk Takers, which I line […]

News, News, News!

I’ve been so busy with workshops, editing, (an icky cold), (a sick cat), and writing, I almost forgot to tell you a few things—and I almost missed my window on them. Before I do, though, let me tell you about the writing. I’m finally finishing a planned series of novels about the Interim Fates. We’re probably going to market the books as YA, but they’re […]
