Sparks is out and Eclipse Phase to be in print soon!

Back in January I mentioned that I have a story in the Eclipse Phase: After the Fall anthology, edited by Jaym Gates. Well that e-book is finally being put into print and it's available for pre-order. You can order your copy here. My bookstore will have it as well. I'll make an announcement when they have it in stock.

I'm pretty proud of this story. I feel I really grew as an author with this one. It's the first time I've written tie-in fiction. It was also my first time writing from a gender neutral point of view. The research and process taught me a lot.

The other piece of exciting news is that Fiction River: Sparks, edited by Rebecca Moesta, is finally out! My story, Moonshine, is in this volume and it's near and dear to my heart because I wrote it in honor of my favorite Grandmother. She ran moonshine during the depression in order to feed her family. The newly orphaned teens in this story have to do the same in order to keep the family together.

You can get the e-book on Kobo:

Amazon has it in ebook:…/…/ref=sr_1_3…

and in print:…/…/1561467553/ref=sr_1_2…

And of course my store will have it as well. The shipment is still in transit but we expect it to arrive soon.

Happy reading!

The Up and Coming anthology

I'm at a writing workshop right now so I'm going to keep this short. Bad Menagerie released an anthology of works by the 2016 Campbell award eligible authors -- including me! I have two stories in it. The Void Around the Sword's Edge is a fast paced sci-fi story about a woman who is the only person who can stop a band of genocidal monks from killing every human on the space station. Blood Moon Carnival is the moving story of a phoenix who is imprisoned by an evil alchemist and forced to perform in a carnival menagerie. Both of these stories are also eligible for the best short story Hugo award.

It's available for download here and it's free through the end of March.

Happy reading!
