Greetings from the coffee shop where I work from nearly every day at what is most definitely an over-the-limit bcc (blood caffeine content). If you're going or thinking of going (please do!), I am always happy to talk! The schedule for ArmadilloCon is out and I'm so glad to be on a mix of panels, … Continue reading ArmadilloCon 2022
I will be at Ink84 Bookstore on May 26th, 2022, for a showcase of Angry Robot authors, and at Blackwell's in Manchester on May 31st, 2022 for another! Details below:
A short, humorous little piece out today in the Bureau Dispatch. It's about a vampire reviewing vampire books on Goodreads. There's also some fun, writing desk trivia. From The Bureau Dispatch
Hi friends. Having two books released during a pandemic is not recommended. But this time around, we're doing a full on actual release event in an actual book store. Interabang Books in Dallas, Texas has been so kind to open their doors for me to do a reading/discussion/signing on the day that STRINGERS is released. … Continue reading Stringers Book Release Event
Boskone takes place from Thursday February 18 to Sunday the 20th this year. I was super fortunate to get some spots on really fun panels and some other events, and yes in the spirit of my new book STRINGERS, I pitched a talk on animal sex comedy and it was accepted. That's Sunday. If you're … Continue reading Boskone 59, February 18-20
Apparently that's a thing. A good thing! Here's the text of the review: Where Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy recommended towels, this slapstick and semisweet space opera sends its Earthlings out among the aliens armed only with a jar of pickles. Ben Sullivan, expert fly-fishing lure tier, possesses uncanny knowledge of entomology and clocks—subjects he’s never … Continue reading Publishers Weekly Gives STRINGERS a Starred Review
Every year, Molotov Cocktail Magazine releases an anthology of the works that placed in the top ten of each of that year's four themed contests. I've got one story in this year's anthology and I highly recommend the whole collection. I've read most of these stories and Molotov's stuff gives you quite the bang for … Continue reading Molotov Cocktail Prize Winners’ Anthology
Where The Phlebotomist was face-melt pink, Angry Robot and I are trying to do face-melt green this time! STRINGERS comes out April 12, 2022, so please pre-order now! (Due to some unorthodox formatting within the book, the print version is my personal recommendation for reader experience, though e-book is fine). Pre-Order from Bookshop Pre-Order from … Continue reading STRINGERS Cover Reveal!
WorldCon (known as DisCon III this year as it is being hosted in Washington, D.C.) is scheduled from December 15-19th, 2021. The full schedule is here. I'm happy to have some appearances this year, including a signing, a reading and two panels.

The Molotov Cocktail Magazine is one of my favorite short fiction venues. There's something about the tone of the stories they publish and those they select as winners in their quarterly contests that appeals to me personally. Something about the emotional exploration of mostly awful happenings that I enjoy. Perhaps it's my hopeful misanthrope lurking … Continue reading Best-of-the-Net 2021 Nomination!
