I know, I know. I’ve been silent on the future of the Fey for a while, except to promise that, yes indeed, I plan to write about the third Place of Power. I had no real dates on that, and I don’t have exact dates now. What I do have is a writing schedule. I am finishing a big story arc in my Diving Universe. […]

I love having an excuse to use the word “plethora.” And really, I need it here. I’ve been busy with the Business Master Class, then trying to catch up on a lot of work, not to mention a bit of exhaustion from the schedule. (Yes, you Writing With Chronic Illness readers, you know what I’m talking about.) So, with all of that, I’ve been remiss […]
Now, here’s something fun. Alternate history stories about changes in history that occurred not because someone lost a war or won a battle, but because of something non-violent. No assassinations failing, no bombings unsolved. No. Instead, someone won an election who shouldn’t have…or, in my case, got impeached as he should have. Yes, I’m talking to you, Andrew Johnson, evil architect of our post Civil […]
As a Medieval woman, Maude knows her place. But her husband’s death shortly after the birth of their son means she must fulfill his duties until their son comes of age. But when a woman appears on her doorstep bloodied and broken, Maude must decide how far she will go to protect her son’s estate. Will she follow the dictates of her time, or will […]
In 1970, a group of Weathermen bombed a statue of Rodin’s The Thinker, where it sat outside the Cleveland Art Museum. The perpetrators were never caught.
In 2016, the museum celebrates its 100th anniversary. When Erika begins her internship at the museum, she finds herself assigned to the celebration preparations. As she researches the museum’s history, she can’t stop thinking about The Thinker and its bomb-damaged legs.
But when she comes face to face with history, she discovers that the past proves difficult to understand and even harder to explain.
“Thinkers,” by New York Times bestselling author Kristine Kathryn Rusch is free on this website for one week only.
My annual recommendation of the best holiday stories I’ve read in the last ten years.
Alas and alack, October did not start well. The traditionally published novel I read first was disappointing. Sadly, it wasn’t the author’s fault. Her stupid traditional publisher ruined everything. Let me explain without naming the book. The book had three reversal/surprises built into the narrative. The first, nearly halfway through, is that a character we thought was dead turns out to be alive. That should […]
Lots of reading this month. I am gearing up on various projects so I had to increase my reading time (oh, how sad). I also line edited a Fiction River, which was really enjoyable. Plus, I seem to be getting my magazines in order—finally! So I have some articles to recommend as well. By the middle of the month, some of the goodness in my […]
