I’m so glad fall is here! My favorite time of year. The sunlight gains a beautiful yellow slant in the evenings, and the air is crisp (though rainy in eastern Kansas today). Autumn speaks to my soul in the turning of the leaves and the thinning of the veil.
I’m certain I’ve whined enough that everyone knows my radio silence is largely due to the fact I’m back in college and studying until my brain explodes. But, I’m taking a short break this fall to study for a professional certification, to write, and do some traveling without having to worry about getting a wi fi signal.
Atlanta, I’m invading you! I’m going to be at CONjuration November 16, 17, and 18 and I can’t wait! My best friend River Frizzle, the magical librarian, invited me to come this year. It’s gonna be AWESOME. I will have copies of all my books available, but especially the Songmaker Series and Nectar and Ambrosia.
I’m up to 25000 words on the new Dalí story – if you were following the #LGBTWIP thread last month on Twitter, I dropped some hints and some tidbits about what might be happening in the next book with our favorite third-gender ambassador/spy and their team of intergalactic operatives.
A flash story originally published last year in Empyreome Magazine is being expanded for inclusion in a new anthology of short stories about bargains with supernatural creatures. It will be out next spring–I’m very excited about it and I can’t wait to tell you more when it’s time.
I’ll try not to be away from the blog so long next time. Nursing theory well and truly cooked my goose in the last eight weeks, but I’m hoping the next class will leave me some room to read for pleasure and write with more abandon (fingers crossed).
