Keynoting Again

Very pleased to be able to announce that I've got my second keynote speaking gig at a conference! This time it's for the Writing the Rockies Conference at Western Colorado University. I'll be flying out there right after the summer residency at Stonecoast in July. Busy times. I'll be delivering the Genre Fiction Keynote.

Also doing a three day workshop called "The Long and Winding (and frequently bumpy and terrifying) Path of a Writer". I know a bit about that...

Take a look HERE.

A Carrie Story

Love this. A new Wild Cards Story at by Carrie Vaughn - "The Thing About Growing up in Jokertown". It's got super cool artwork by John Picacio:

Good work.

Good friends.

Literary Cats

We have two new kittens. They're horrible. As they're supposed to be. And way too cute. They're inclined toward literary things, apparently, as this photo documents. 

Two kittens. Spot them both!

Wild Cards World

The Wild Cards Series has a shiny new website. It's lovely, and going to be growing and active and (hopefully) full of awesome news about great things to come. (Things are in the works.) If you click over to it you'll see - among others - one of my characters featured on the covers displayed on the main page! The snaky dude. (At this point I'm obligated to mention that my son was my co-creator of this character, as he always reminds me.) Anyway, check it out!

Read PoC//Fantasy and Science Fiction

Just came across this nice list of SFF titles by writers of color. Great to see how much it's grown over the last few years!

Take a look. You'll find a book/author to love. HERE.

Believe George!

If you watch you'll catch a glimpse of my character in action on one of the covers. Hint: he's the one wearing a hoodie. Further fact: he's a good guy.

Strand Magazine

I love it when the backlist gets new attention.

I just came across this recent article in Strand Magazine. What a treat to see my second novel, Walk Through Darkness, at the top of this list! Granted, it's not a mystery per se, but it occurs to me that the plot is fueled by a sense of mystery as to what's driving one of the main characters. It's about a secret that's not fully revealed until near the end. Interesting. Nice also to be on a list with the likes of James Lee Burke, Ron Rash, Paulette Jiles and Stewart O'Nan, among others. This will suffice nicely as today's pick-me-up.

I'm starting to emerge from the international move chaos. Yay! It's good being back in New England, enjoying the fabulous weather. Right now, the wind is gently stirring trees outside.

I'm reminded as autumn approaches that my MFA program (STONECOAST) is in the process of admitting new students to begin in January. It's a great program that I LOVE teaching in. Very flexible for people leading busy lives. (And aren't we all?) With concentrations in fiction, popular fiction (as in all the various genres), nonfiction and poetry we've got a lot of bases covered. If you're thinking about graduate study in writing please check us out. And maybe get an application in!

High Stakes

Here's a thing. My third contribution to one of GRRM's Wild Cards novels. This one gets horrific. In the best of ways, I hope...
