Greetings, everyone! Happy New Year! I hope 2017 is off to a good start for anyone who’s still following this blog, in the hope that I might actually post. And here I am posting!
2016 was a pretty good year for me, writing-wise, because my novelette “Chlorophyll Is Thicker than Water” came out in the now oft-lauded anthology To Shape the Dark. As I’ve mentioned many times here and elsewhere, I’m really proud to be a part of this book and pleased that a lot of folks have enjoyed my contribution to it.
With that in mind, and with awards nomination season upon us, it seems worthwhile to mention that “Chlorophyll Is Thicker than Water” is eligible for both the Nebula and the Hugo awards in the Best Novelette category. Nominations for both awards are now open.
Nebula Awards nominations can be made through February 15. Hugo Awards nominations can be made through March 17.
Thank you for your consideration!
Check, check, is this thing on?
There will be news at some point soon. Stay tuned!
Yes, I know! I haven’t posted in a long, long time. Is anyone still out there? *waves*
Not sure if my posting will improve in the new year, but here are my sad, sad stats for this one. Wishing you all the best in 2016! Happy New Year!

Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,300 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 55 trips to carry that many people.

By random happenstance, the next book on my TBR pile was another collection from Edge Science Fiction & Fantasy Publishing (an imprint of Hades Publications, to get picky). LibraryThing sent me this one, too, as an Early Reviewer giveaway. Expiration Date is a collection of tales all having to do with endings–the death of someone in the story, more often than not. The editor Nancy Kilpatrick sets out the parameters of the anthology in an interesting introduction that got me excited to read the stories. Continue reading
