Women Up to No Good – Excerpt!

If you head over to the Kickstarter updates page, you can read an excerpt from “Mary In the Looking Glass,” and read a little bit about where the idea came from.  You can also read about the stories from Damien Angelica Walters and Rachael Sterling.

While you’re over there, you can check out excerpts and some more blurbs from some of the other cool authors and stories included in the anthologies.  And, you know, donate to the cause!  There’s a new reward up–the chance to have your story critiqued by A.C. Wise.

The Kickstarter for the Women Up to No Good anthologies is back!

If you head on over there, you will find some great backer rewards and a whole lot of behind the scenes, author spotlights!

Over on Twitter, Joanne and Co. have been posting short excerpts from the stories in the anthologies–these are two I particularly like:

And then there’s one from this chick I know pretty well:

(Spoiler: that one’s my story, “Mary In the Looking Glass”!)

There are stories in these books from L. Timmel Duchamp, Chikodili Emelumadu, Nisi Shawl, D.A. Xiaolin Spires, Catherynne M. Valente, Alyssa Wong, Sonya Taaffe, and Damien Angelica Walters, along with a whole lot of other amazing writers.

(Fangirly fun facts:  Damien Angelica Walters guest-edited the issue of Penumbra eMag my story, “Hauntings,” appeared in!  And Nisi Shawl and I were both in the April 2014 issues of Strange Horizons, so we spent a couple weeks in the same “table of contents”–read: front page.  My brushes with greatness, let me show you them.)

So if you find this intriguing, hop on over to the Kickstarter and check it out–and please back the project, if you can!

 

Story promotion: “The Lost Languages of Exiles”

“The Lost Languages of Exiles,” at Metaphorosis for your reading pleasure, is a romance.

Romances are new territory for me.  I used to say I don’t write romance–not in any sort of superior way; in an ‘I have no idea how to do it’ way.  And now look at me–two romances!  Two!  And a time travel story, sort of, so my father should be pleased with me.

Metaphorosis is going to be posting a brief explanation of where this story came from in the next few weeks, so I don’t want to say too much about it here.  I do love it; I can’t tell you how happy I am that it’s found its home and that people can read it.  If you liked Dropping Slow and wondered about Javi’s ports or what his childhood/adolescence was like with IWT, this story will give you more background on that.  And there is probably one more story set in this universe currently taking shape in my notebooks (it’s one Jason has said he wants to read, so I’m determined to figure it out).

So, yeah–head over and read.  I hope you like it.  And yes, that character is named after exactly who you think he is.  But he doesn’t look like him.
