Spec Fic for Newbies has been out now for 2 weeks and is doing great, so Val (my co-author) and I joined Lauren at Horrortree to geek out some more about the porousness of subgenres, how they're like rivers (Val's great simile!), how we created the table of contents, what's on tap for the second volume. You can read the transcript at the link above or find the video here.
The Milford SF Writers' Workshop has compiled a new anthology to benefit the Milford Bursary for SF Writers of Colour, Eclectic Dreams. I'm honored to have a story in the collection: "Mama Leaf", about a desperate woman in the colonial backwoods who turns to dark power to protect herself from her husband's wrath. But what is super exciting is the fact that we got a previously unpublished story by Neil Gaiman (!!!) for the book; he attended Milford over 20 years ago and is generous enough to still support it. Oh, and just to say, my story is the one following his (yes, I am weirdly excited about that)!
There are several outlets that can get you a copy, both in the US and UK; click here.
Mostly thoughts on writing and the creative life.
