I remember the moment vividly: I was reading Runners World, and an essayist mentioned that while running a race, a person nearby collapsed. The essayist was appalled that she (he?) had a momentary thought— Should I just leave the person there and keep trying for my personal best?—before stopping to help. The essay was about how bad the person felt for the thought. I can’t […]
No real publication news today. I just wanted to say thank you to the Kickstarter supporters and the people who have been sharing the Kickstarter with their friends. We hit our third stretch goal late yesterday. That means Kickstarter supporters over the $5 will get three additional books. Frankly, I’m hoping that we will hit our fourth stretch goal in the week remaining on the […]
Today’s news? I’m in another bundle. This one, the Political Thriller Bundle, will be available until the day after the U.S. election. And while I seriously can’t wait for this particular election cycle to end, I don’t want this bundle to end too quickly—although it will. November 9 is only 61 days away.
I warned you: September is a busy month for news. It just keeps on rolling in. In fact, this morning, I received even more news in my email, stuff I had forgotten. Yeah, it’s a fun month. 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 […]
Yeah, okay. I had fun with the title of this post. Remember, I warned you that September is news month, right? I’m trying to bunch up the news by topic or genre or title. Today’s a bit easier than most to bundle up the news. Today I get to share with you The Epic Fantasy Bundle, curated by New York Times bestseller, Kevin J. Anderson. […]
Four years ago, we started Fiction River, our award-nominated anthology series, through Kickstarter. Two years ago, we held a successful subscription drive through Kickstarter. This year, we hope to do the same. The rewards are more than just subscriptions. Those of you who are interested in writing will find some writing books scattered among the rewards, as well as discounted writing workshops. Those of you […]
After a pretty quiet summer, I have a hectic few months of news to share with you all. Last week, I told you about the year’s bests. This week, let me share anthology and some bundle news. 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 […]
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 […]
Gertie lived by her dancing. The contests earned her a living in those dark days of the Great Depression and acclaim in the days leading up to World War II. But the competitions took their toll—in haunting ways.
Now, decades later, Gertie finds herself facing those ghosts—whether she wants to or not.
“Night of the Dancing Champions” by New York Times bestselling author Kristine Kathryn Rusch is free on this website for one week only.
I had a dry spell for news during the month of March, but as the rains ease in the Northwest, the writing news dry spell ends as well. Or something like that. Yes, I’m mixing metaphors. And not very successfully. First, the latest volume of Fiction River just appeared. Sparks, edited by Rebecca Moesta, contains many marvelous young adult stories, all with a spark of […]
