I finished Afterglow today! I’m so excited to talk with Electric Sheep SF about this in early March. Now to assemble, edit, and send this out! I also want to thank the mags that saw something in this wild spec fic book and published (or will soon publish) pieces from Afterglow. Sledgehammer Lit, Bullshit Lit, Orca Literary, Cult of Clio, Idle Ink, Literary Canteen, and Antipodean SF: thank you so, so much. 😊❤️
Third bit of news today! I’m so excited and honored that Internet Void started the new year with my work. Here’s a CNF about the grandpa I never got to meet, about our shared love of The Twilight Zone and us both being dreamers and grief that you can have for someone you never knew. 💙
Second bit of news today: This is the first Afterglow story I wrote, a piece on nostalgia & memory & sickness & a shopping mall from the beforetimes where rain & vines now get through the broken skylight. Hope you enjoy this spec fic!
It was a joy and an honor to sit down again with Brinton Woodall for his podcast, this time to talk about The Brother We Share. I had a lot of fun going behind the scenes and talking structure and process too. Brinton is an all-around awesome person, and this really was just two friends getting to catch up. Listen to the full episode here!
Putting myself out there:
Editing is something I’ve been passionate about for 8+ years, so I’ve decided to go after it.
I’ve made a site with options for manuscript and flash/CNF editing. I’d love it if you could share with the writers in your life!
Woke up to an acceptance from AntipodeanSF! It’s a spec fic Afterglow piece called “Seeking Sounds,” about grief & love & chronic pain & carrying on. It’ll be up in March, and I’ll also be narrating it for the AntiSF Radio Show! I am super duper chuffed about this. 😊
I’m tearing up and can’t stop smiling. This is my first nomination. For anything. No matter what happens from here, this means the world to me. So thankful to Chris Talbot-Heindl and The Bitchin’ Kitsch for this.
I’m really excited/proud of this one. Here’s another piece from AFTERGLOW, one of the most important ones, tbh.
This scifi/spec fic on grief and continuing consciousness in a robotic body sets up events hundreds of years in the future.
Huge thanks to Idle Ink for homing this.
Here’s the first piece from AFTERGLOW being pubbed, and in the amazing Sledgehammer Lit! This one’s a single sentence spec fic about the exact point of collapse. There’s an audio version too, so you can also listen to me read the piece! Big thanks to J Archer Avary for having me. 😊
