writing news
All traveling for 2018 is over and done. This coming year, I'll be returning to some favorite fantasy/sf conventions and writers' conferences, while working on a my new still-under-wraps project. I always love to meet readers and aspiring writers at these events. Check out my appearances page for 2019 stops. A couple are still tentative and more will be added. One extra cool thing is that I will be the Toastmaster Guest for MileHiCon 51 in October. Always a great time in Denver in the beautiful month of October.

What's New?
window Yes, there is a new project under contract. Three books. First one out in 2019. I can't wait to tell but for now it's under wraps. (Come see me at a convention and I might whisper secrets.) So why the window?

A gushing fountain centered the piazza, a monumental bronze of Atladu’s Leviathan drowning the kingdom of Sysaline on the day it washed the monster Dragonis out of the sky. Behind the fountain stood the Palazzo Segnori—the same venue my brother and I visited for his Quarter Day parole reports. The palazzo’s pillared loggia stretched left and right, and above it the harmonious rows of windows, like bright eyes ever open to the world. --Work in Progress

Short Subjects

Lace and Blade It's been a quiet year publishing-wise, but I've had two stories released in excellent anthologies. The Heart's Coda, the long-promised novelette sequel to my award-winning novel Song of the Beast was published in the anthology Lace and Blade 4 (Amazon, Indiebound).

The The Heart's Coda takes place three years after the climactic events of Song of the Beast. A naive young Elhim ventures into the wildlands of the west in search of a legend. No one has seen or heard from the Dragonsinger, Aidan McAllister since the early days of his self-imposed exile. But the kingdom of Elyria is facing an invasion and someone thinks Aidan needs to know. Assuming he is still alive.

And yes, the long-delayed anthology Hath No Fury, is available at last. If you supported the Kickstarter, you should have received - or will soon be receiving - your backer copies. I have been assured that they are going out in waves - a residual of the awful financial situation Outland Entertainment found when they took over Ragnarok Publishing in 2017. Let's hope all this will be over and done wiht soon and readers can appreciate a gret anthology of stories about strong and, um, determined women.

My story in Hath No Fury is called The Book of Rowe. It involves Saverian, a very smart, powerful, and quirky young sorceress with a big chip on her shoulder, who really does not like being underestimated, especially by the men in her life. (Hint: Saverian figures prominently in Breath and Bone.) Among the many authors with stories in this collection are Seanan McGuire, Bradley Beaulieu, Gail Z. Martin, Nisi Shawl. ( Amazon)
