I Have Stuff, Yanno…

Really, I truly do have stuff. Pieces I’m writing for people. Places I’m going to be to sell those writings.

That sort of thing.

This here post is to updated all you fine Brownies on said activities. Well, most of them. The ones I can talk about anyway.

June 18th marks my return to the Grove City Wine & Arts Festival. I’ll be selling with a couple of fine folks you may have heard of: Tim McWhorter and Violet Patterson. We only have one spot this year (as opposed to last year’s rainy fiasco, where we had two), so come by and see us. We’ll have horror, urban fantasy, paranormal romance, and science fiction. Kind of a grab bag, really.

Did I mention the wine? Over twenty wineries are participating this year. Oh… and music, and artists (not just us authors). It runs from 11a-10p. Really no excuse not to get out and have some fun.

And the even bigger news, some that I’m really excited about is my appearance at Scares that Care Weekend July 22-24th. A twist of fate flipped over an ace in the hole and I’m going to make it this year, when I thought I wasn’t. You’ll find me at the PlotForge table hawking my books alongside Tim McWhorter (what is it with this guy? He’s everywhere… maybe he’s stalking me? Or maybe I’m stalking him…)

This convention… well, I can’t say enough about it. I attended last year, sold books, and the atmosphere was just wonderful. Horror for a cause. Read, donate, show up, have a drink or ten with me, and let’s give to those who need it more than we do. All the deets are on the website.

If you haven’t, check out my latest episode on The Lift. The episode, “The Burden of Others,” is right there on the splash page. You can also get the Kindle version of my latest short story, “An Unfettered Life,” in the anthology, Dystopian Express. You really should do both of these things.

And that’s it for now, Brownies.

The Dystopian Express has rolled into the station…

It’s finally out! It’s been a bit of a wait, I know, but you can now purchase the Kindle edition of this most excellent dystopian fiction. The print book is coming soon (a couple of more weeks). So, if you’re a fan of anything where the world is fucked, definitely pick this up. You can get it right here

My story, “An Unfettered Life,” appears within the hallowed pages of the book, and here’s the synopsis for my piece: The world has changed, and not for the better. The sick, the handicapped, and the old are all liabilities, able to sell themselves into death to better humanity, or just their own family. But what happens when the ones being sold can’t speak for themselves?

Unfettered is one of the stories I’ve held onto for years, tweaking and dicking with, because it means a lot to me. I’m happy it found a home amongst other excellent dystopian fiction. Dystopian Express is published by Hydra Publications.
