We’re coming on the 2017 Write-a-thon and I’m… still doing edits for the last of the space opera short novels. Hoping to be back in the happy free land of drafting soon.
Igrid had two questions.
|What I Write||
Science fiction and fantasy! My forthcoming novel, released on August 22nd, is space opera, but my current project is a fantasy, about a young indigenous girl forced into a battle of bone sorcerers and mammoths and pirates and some sort of Chosen One business that usually happens to someone else.

The Fires of Mercy

Five weird linked micro-stories written in tribute to the California Aqueduct. Read it in print in the July 2014 issue of The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, or in the (very handsome) upcoming anthology Strange California, out in 2017.
Mount Rainier Considers Its Mental Health.
This year (2017) I am finishing edits on my third space opera novel, which means I have to come within a hair’s breadth of destroying the universe!
I am also trying to knock out the first 10,000 words of a fantasy novel, just to keep things interesting.
Whatever you want to throw CW’s way, I would appreciate. I would love to raise over a hundred bucks at least.
