If You’ve Found This Blog…

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

The April A-Z Challenge can be found on my Dreamwidth Blog.

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 Blogging A-Z  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.

In Which I Harangue Creative Types to Update Their Wills and Estates

A must-read.

Originally posted on Whatever:

Today my wife and I went into our lawyer’s office and updated our everything, including wills, living wills, donor registries and so on. Why did we do this? Because at this point in our life we have a fair number of assets, and given my recent deal, it’s likely we’ll have more in the future. Moreover, as a creative person, I have a considerable amount of intellectual property, which will need to be attended to if something should happen to me. If Krissy and I didn’t specify what was to become of all of that, it would be up to the state to deal with it. No offense to the state, but I don’t know it all that well. So Krissy and I have made sure that our own wishes for everything are in legal documents and up to date. Now there is no confusion about our wishes.

I frequently harangue…

Want to read anthologies featuring yours truly?

My story in Shifting Hearts, “Crossing the Line,” follows a feral-hearted woman as she deals with territoriality – and cautious affection.

“Monster Godmother,” in What Follows, is the story of an immortal fae and the humans that hate her, all struggling against an ending world.

“Company,” my story in No Place For Us, is also apocalyptic.  Sometimes the best thing to wash up in your nets is companionship.

The Amazon Links are all here.

You can find What Follows on SmashWords, Barnes & Noble, and Kobo here, or on CreateSpace here.

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!
