Hey, awesome: Grim Tides is on the front page of Kickstarter this morning (down at the bottom) as the featured Fiction project!

154% funded. But more would be nice! If I break $10K I'll commission an original cover painting.

My good cover karma continues. Behold the pretty for Venom In Her Veins:

Earthquake around 11:30 last night, big enough to notice (only 3.6 or something though). Another earthquake moments ago, rattling the office for a second or two. Is falling into the ocean a legitimate reason to blow a short fiction deadline?

Exhausting week, and it's only Tuesday. The magazine goes to press tomorrow. In theory I'm off work on Thursday, though even then it's wall-to-wall errands and delayed writing work. Going to Worldcon was fun, but it did rather wrench around my routines and bump a lot of necessary actions forward in time. And, drat, here I am, in that future. Cursed linear experience of time.

The Kickstarter for Grim Tides has passed $8500! If I hit $10K, I'll commission original cover art. (Not by Dan Dos Santos -- both affordability and availability mitigate against him, alas -- but he recommended an artist he works with who is awesome and has read my Marla Mason books.)

Behold the pretty: Dan Dos Santos art for Bone Shop and Broken Mirrors, commissioned for the upcoming audio editions:
