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 […]

Just in Time for Valentine’s Day, Cats And Romance And Snow!

  A few months ago, one of my favorite people and one of my favorite editors, Denise Little, contacted me to let me know she’s editing a brand new romance magazine. She wondered if I, or more specifically, Kristine Grayson, could contribute a story. Now, sadly, Grayson’s stories require me to be in a goofy mood, and last fall I was anything but goofy. (I’m […]

Bundle and Anthology News

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.

Out of the Woods

The title of the latest Uncollected Anthology makes me think of that song from the Wizard of Oz…we’re out of the woods, we’re out of the dark… Or maybe into the dark. I’m not sure. I’m happy to be part of the anthology with special guest Ron Collins, and Uncollected Anthology regulars Dayle A. Dermatis, Leah Cutter, Annie Reed, Leslie Claire Walker, and our latest […]

Idols, Middles, and Giggles

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 […]

Paranormal Romance, Lots of Fantasy, and a Preorder!

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the Uncollected Anthology has a new issue. This one? Happily Ever Afters. Guest author Anthea Sharp joins me, Dayle Dermatis, and Leah Cutter to give you the  most romantic fantasy stories possible. The idea behind the Uncollected Anthology is this: we share a theme, and then sell the stories individually. (For those of you who read my business blog, […]

A New Uncollected Novella

In addition to the bundle, the release of The Write Attitude, and the release of Starbase Human, I have also just published a new novella. As many of you know, I participate […]

Recommended Reading List: December, 2014

Not quite as many books, articles, or stories to recommend from my December reading as I found in my November reading, but I read just as much. One of my favorite novelists disappointed me greatly with the ending of his latest novel. He badly telegraphed a “twist,” and it came—I’m not kidding—on the very last page of the novel. The end. The abrupt ending left […]
