THE FAERIE RING – Now on IndieGoGo

Our Kickstarter for THE FAERIE RING funded (hooray!) and the project has been picked up by IndiGoGo!  What does this mean? Well, if you missed out on the Kickstarter, you still have an opportunity to support the project. It also means we can pick up where we left off, potentially opening up stretch goals that…

THE FAERIE RING Kickstarter Now Live!

I’m happy to announce that I’m a contributing writer for a new RPG book using the Pathfinder system: THE FAERIE RING from Zombie Sky Press.  The book — actually, BOOKS, a players guide AND a campaign guide — are being funded through Kickstarter. There’s lots of pledge options with awesome bonuses. The book itself is…

Dragon(Age)Con

I’ve lived in Atlanta for…oh, good grief, 20 years now, and I finally attended my first DragonCon this past Labor Day weekend. It was also the first con I’ve ever attended EVER. Thanks to the generosity of a friend, I scored a Saturday pass (the rest of my weekend was booked with family coming in…

What I Learned Doing #SFFpit

Yesterday was #SFFpit on Twitter. For those of you who don’t know what the heck I’m talking about, there are pitch contests on Twitter several times a year (though I hate the word contest here because the only person you’re really competing against is yourself). If an agent reads your pitch and likes it, they…

Why an All-Girl Superhero Team Pisses Me Off

In case you haven’t been paying attention, people are upset that Marvel seems to be dropping the ball on the merchandising when it comes to their female characters. Just to name a few, Gamora gets left off shirts, Black Widow is missing from merchandise, and Gogo and Honey Lemon from Big Hero 6 are erased because…

The Waiting Game

We’re more than halfway through January already. That feels sort of insane, as if 2015 is flying by before I can even settle into it. Then I realize I’m only on my third week of the semester, and I feel like it’s going to be a reeeeally long year. It’s all relative, I guess. Timey-wimey,…

Wherein I Write a Blog Post to Avoid Doing Actual Work

Hi Lovelies! This week is the last week of classes, which means I have all sorts of papers and projects to be working on. Which, of course, means I’m procrastinating by writing a terribly long-overdue blog post. Congrats, gentle readers! You win! Well. NaNoWriMo has come and gone, and I have failed spectacularly. I’ve never…

PREP ALL THE THINGS

Hello, darlings! I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted. I’m sorry. Please forgive me? So, in case you haven’t heard, I did not win the Simon451 novel writing contest. Which…yeah, that’s kind of a bummer. But, at the same time, it was a total honor to even be in the top ten, and…

The Home Stretch

Sorry it’s been so quiet here. I have less than ten days until the deadline for the Simon451 contest. I’m simultaneously incredibly excited and incredibly nervous. That’s how these things work, right? Thankfully, my book is done. Or, rather, I have it all down, from beginning to end. It’s a story, now, instead of just…

Burned

Sunburned, that is.  I will never trust my husband to apply spray suncreen to my back ever again.  My very first day on the beach last week, and I had a beautiful red and white zig-zag pattern between my shoulder blades. That’s talent, I tell you.  Painful talent.  Ow.   At least the view was…
