It’s been quiet on the news front as I’m focused on surviving this winter and novel rewrites, but what I can share with you all is that Upside Down: Inverted Tropes in Storytelling is going to hit shelves next week. This anthology contains my fairy tale take on damsels in distress and evil sorceresses being evil for the sake of being evil, “Her Curse, How Gently It Comes Undone.” Read More Upside Down: Inverted Tropes in Storytelling Goes LIVE December 13

Toiling away on the novel, I haven’t had much opportunity to submit short fiction, but it’s all looking great on the non-fiction front.

It’s been so long since I’ve updated this space — I return to dust, debris and desolation. Posts are scarce.…
Over the past two months, I had several great opportunities to talk about writing on other people’s platforms and launch a column at the same time. These pieces have been out there for some time (no novelty value here), but it’s only now I had the time to sit down and collect them in a post as a reminder. Read More A Gathering of Links
It’s funny how life works, because I spoke a week ago about my year of no sales and how you can never predict your career’s trajectory. Yesterday, I received a short story acceptance and now that the contract has been signed, scanned and sent, I can announce it.

I think it was over a year ago I was solicited by Jaym Gates to write a short story set in the world of Exalted 3 for their Kickstarter anthology, which served as a perk for backers who funded the game. In my short career, this was the first time anyone has requested my work prior to submission and as it so happens, Exalted: Tales From the Age of Sorrows has now been released for purchase outside the Kickstarter campaign. You can buy a copy through the DriveThru Fiction website.

Hot off the announcement I’ve sold “The Language of Knives” in Italian, I’m happy to announce that Cristina Jurado has purchased my story for the Spanish Magazine SuperSonic. Marian Womack of The Best of Spanish Steampunk fame will act as translator, which makes me all the more excited.
SuperSonic is a SFF magazine, which publishes both in Spanish and in English – a fascinating combination and below you can find a Table of Contents for the current issue (in Spanish). Read More Reprint Alert: THE LANGUAGE OF KNIVES Will Be Published in Spanish!
