New Novellas Just in Time for GeekGirl Con!

Posted on Updated on

It’s that time of year again! GeekGirl Con is just around the corner (Nov. 16th and 17th this year) and I’ve got two new novellas for your enjoyment. The first, Pit Stop, was previously only available in the Night Lights Anthology, and Wavefall which is a brand new adventure in the same universe. Literally the opposite side of the universe from Pit Stop, but same none-the-less.

Pitstop Front Cover

Pit Stop is the story of Maevis, in self-imposed exile on a distant refueling station for Corporate. She finds herself helping out an injured juvenile hijacker and rethinking some of her choices.

Wavefall Front Cover

In Wavefall, we meet Andrea and Brad on a mining asteroid hoping to survive a quantum event that is traveling through the universe and leaving a wake of missing and dead people.

Also don’t forget that the third in the Oz novellas series is out for consumption as well! Jason Morgado is working on the illustrations for the last two right now, and I hope to have the fourth and fifth out in the next year, so keep your eyes peeled.

All three stories are available in print through Amazon or your other favorite book vendor, as well as digitally through whichever form you prefer downloading books. And as a teaser, this NaNoWriMo, I’ll be editing another two books in this series, as well as finishing up writing the first draft for two others, including a followup to Wavefall. Follow me on Instagram if you want to keep up to date on my writing progress!

Exciting News!

Hey guys! I know it’s been a while, but I’ve been crazy busy over here. I did, however, want to share that Less Than Charming has been selected as a Finalist for the Forward Indie Book Awards for 2016!

IndieFinalist

This means out of thousands of books, mine is moving forward in the competition along with 18 other YA fiction novels, and we’ll find out in June how well I did. If you want to check out the other books that are nominated, please do. I am sure they are all excellent and I plan on tracking some of them down to read for myself. Now to wait and see how Less Than Charming is received by librarians and booksellers around the country!

Green Lake Play Series – The Staged Reading!

Posted on Updated on

I will get back to my regularly scheduled Hugo Award Voting reviews next week, when I will hopefully have finished all the novels (or given up on them, there’s a couple…) but I have some fun news to share with you for the moment.

I have been working with a fantastic group of people on a series of short plays called the Green Lake Play Series. It is a group of plays written by current and former Seattle residents, about Green Lake Park, and will be staged in said park in the near future. However, we’re currently in the midst of preparing for a staged reading (so we can hear what our lines actually sound like and get feedback from actors and an audience), so if you happen to be in the Seattle neighborhood on July 27th, and want to see a little free theater in the making, please stop on by!

Indiegogo

Also, if you’d like to snag a copy of the plays, or a poster, or get to sit in the best seats in the house without having to show up super early, we’re running an Indiegogo campaign to help us defray the cost of renting the facilities and all the printing. So come check it out!

You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter to keep abreast of the project and find out when we are going to get to a full staged production of the plays! We plan to get to that sometime within the next six months.

Problems with eBook Vendor

Posted on Updated on

Hello all, please forgive me, but if you’ve tried to purchase an ebook in the last few days, you’ve probably found it impossible. BookBaby and I had a difference of opinion on several matters and have parted ways and I am currently trying to find a new distributor. Bear with me for a little while, but if you want a digital copy now, just drop me a line and I’ll make sure you get one asap. Also, if you purchased a kindle copy anytime in the last three months, please let me know so that I can send you the pretty version of the book instead of the mangled piece of crap that has been up for sale on Amazon.
