If You’ve Found This Blog…

…you’re probably looking for my writing. Here’s where you can find it!

My Dreamwidth Blog holds most of my day-to-day writing, as well as, currently, Inner Circle (see below).  Prompts such as 3 Word Wednesday go there.

Inner Circle, a webserial set in a far-post-apoc magical world: Getting to the Inner Circle can take a lifetime – or cost you your life.

Edally Academy is my  second current webserial, a steampunk boarding school.  All Tairiekie wants is to be better at school than her parents were.  Will the Academy cooperate?

Addergoole and Addergoole: Year 9 are the serials I’m best known for; both are complete, but a rewritten e-book for Addergoole Book One should be coming out soon.

The (Fictional) Apocalypse is being live-blogged on DreamwidthTumblr, and Twitter.

I’ve been published in Shifting Hearts, a therian anthology, and in Kazka Press, & EMG-Zine, both webzines.

And you can talk to me on Twitter and Tumblror find me on Patreon.

On Crows and Crow Cages

Crows, the email said. Just crows. An anthology of crows.

Ideas started flitting through my head. The Crow (the movies(s), the comics…). No. Crow Change. Neat… but not a story. Crow Therian. Snow White with crows instead of bluebirds. The corvids in the field outside my house. Crows.

Crows, it said, and I started thinking. I knew I didn’t want to do another Fae apoc, not yet. I was pretty sure I wanted to use an urban fantasy setting I’d been bouncing around in my head, one set on a university campus much like the one where I spent most of my twenties (I had a protracted early-adulthood, okay?) And, obvious, it needed to involve crows.

And then my husband, brainstorming over croissant french toast stuffed with strawberries (we have the best diner) mentioned demons.

And Crow Cage* was born.

I’ve worked with April before – on What Follows, where my Fae Apoc story Monster Godmother is published. I’m excited to be working with her again on Mobbing Midnight, and I’m excited to be working again with such a wonderful selection of writers.

Go check it out! Every little bit gets us closer to our goal.  Annnd… if you haven’t bought What Follows yet, check out the $20 and higher levels – you can kill two birds with one stone!

Mobbing Midnight Kickstarter is Live!

Crows, crows, and more crows: Mobbing Midnight is an anthology focused on the brilliant corvid!

Crows are peppered through world mythology and folklore- sometimes serving as a sign of ill luck, other times a trickster.

From American crows to hooded and carrion crows, pied crows to jungle crows- they come in as many shapes and in as many environments as we can dream up.

And my story is going to be in there, along with stories by fourteen other awesome authors!

Tentatively titled Crow Cage, it’s an urban fantasy tale of magic and mystery, following a murder of crows that are definitely more than they seem – and possibly more than that, too.

Check it out!

Did You Know I Have a Patreon?

Did you know that I have a Patreon?

If you enjoy reading my fiction here – or at Edally Academy, at Jumping Rings, or Addergoole - please consider becoming a Patron. Every little bit helps support my writing time and gets me closer to my goal of being a full-time writer.

Any donation at all gets you access to at least one Patreon-only microfiction a month! $5 or more a month lets you vote in the monthly theme poll, and $7 a month will open up a secret flash fiction each month when the total donations reach $75/month.

In addition, for every $15/month of Patreon donations, Edally Academy will post an extra chapter; for every $20/month, Inner Circle posts an extra chapter, meaning your monthly donation helps fund three different goals!

The first donation level is $75, and we’re currently at $19. Fifty-six dollars to go!

At $75, my writing is helping fund more than just my take-out habit. This level is where it actually starts helping to pay the bills. And at $75, I’ll write two flash fictions (~750 words) a month for Patreons – one for all Patreons, and one for those at the $7 or higher level.

Check out that and all the other incentive levels today!
