Talking with +Aidan Moher is always much fun... how could I not spill a few secrets...

Though I'd forgotten I'd told him about the impossible cow!

For the first time in a very long time, I have a new poem out. "The Ghost Tide Chantey," at Tor.com!

With many thanks to editor Miriam Weinberg, who acquired it, and spoke so nicely to the ghosts.

"Storm crushed sea; smoke bound sky; we watched from widow’s walks worn thin. / Time pounded our island, shouting go down go down. ..."

Serendipity: finding the thing you didn't know you needed, at just the right time. (paraphrase of Erin McKean from 'Re-defining the Dictionary').

I'm standing on the edge of something I've never done before. Doing wrong things all over the place; some right things too. So much is out of my control, and I have to let go of things I've dreamed about for years, and let those dreams become other people's dreams too. It's hard, especially when I don't understand the mechanics of it all. Hard too, because I know this is the result of so much hard work. I don't want to screw up.

I rarely check my Pinterest inbox... there are other places I check all too often and Pinterest is for images and recipes and dreams. So finding a message from my friend, fellow author Lauren Teffeau, that she posted in February was kind of a surprise.

The fact that Lauren time-traveled so as to drop it in a box where I'd find it at just the right time? Serendipity.

The image Lauren posted is popular -- though its author isn't always attributed. But I'd never seen it before. So it's new to me. And it means a lot right now. Maybe it means something to you too, and so I'll be passing the feeling on, and the lift it gave me, right when I needed it.

Thanks, +Lauren Teffeau, you can't know how much.

This is going to be a great event -- I hope I see you there!
Here’s a bit of blasphemy: Asimov’s Science Fiction Magazine may be more legendary than its namesake. There, I said it. For decades it has collected some of the best Science Fiction from new and es...

What I did on the weekend. AKA: What could possibly go wrong, parts 1, 2, and 47...
 
The most marvelous Ms. +Fran Wilde​ has assembled a wonderful recap of our Uncanny Magazine Writing Retreat weekend. It has everything: impromptu musicals, group written twitter horror, a plate full of giant smores. Oh, and actual productive writing time and genre/industry discussions.
Pro Tip: When editors extraordinaire Lynne M. Thomas & Michael Damian Thomas ask if you want to be an Uncanny Magazine kickstarter reward... for values of Kickstarter rewards that include a wee...

Always love to have visitors... hello Canada and New Zealand!
 
I'm over at +Fran Wilde's place, talking about food and politics.

While you're over there, don't forget to check out her upcoming novel Updraft. It looks amazeballs.

Got to read this lovely book early! Soon you will too! 

-- my first blurb! -- Last Song Before Night is utterly kaleidoscopic. Poets, nobles, and rogues fight for power in a world where blades may cut deep, but words are the most powerful weapon of all.

Orpheus and Eurydice, in 250 words. At +Uncanny Magazine!

Or, a myth-tech mashup for all those who were wondering what I've been doing with my education.

I interviewed +Discovery Channel's Emily Riedel from Bering Sea Gold for +GeekMom ! She's hilarious. Very frank. And hadn't heard of Killashandra Ree. I fixed that.
