My short story “Life and Death in the Frozen City” has now been published in a real book that you can really buy!
The story is about a traveler who has to survive on an occupied planet where gender is binary and It’s part of FUTURISTICA 1, an anthology of really great scifi stories I still can’t believe I’ve really been included in.
It’s especially “wait, is this really happening?” for me because “Life and Death in the Frozen City” was the first original short story I ever wrote, about 7-8 years ago, and the version in my final draft from that time is almost identical to the one in the book. I’m a very different writer these days, but I still love that story, and am so, so happy to be able to share it with people at last.
You can get FUTURISTICA on Amazon, Smashwords, Kobo and Barnes & Noble.
And of course, if you do end up picking it up, please consider leaving a review on Amazon or Goodreads. (As a reviewer I am… ridiculously excited about the possibility of there being reviews of something I wrote.)
So, a while ago I updated to say that my short story The Princess and the Demon was featured in issue #8 of The Running Bunny, but you could only get the issue by singing up for Patreon.
I am very happy to announce that you can now get the issue at their online store, without the need to sign up for Patreon! 🙂
As a reminder: the story is a queer fantasy with a happy ending, and is accompanied by gorgeous illustrations by Ursula Grey. (A sample of the illustrations.)
You can get it here: Issue #8 of The Running Bunny >>
You can now, for the first time, read an original short story by me! With bonus awesome illustrations!
“The Princess and the Demon” is about 2700 words of feel-good, queer fantasy about, well, a princess and a demon.
It appears in issue #8 of The Running Bunny! Between now and January 31st you can get it at a discount by supporting the creators on Patreon. After January 31st you’ll be able to get it for slightly more at the digital store.
A preview of the amazing illustrations by Ursula Gray:
I am so (so!) excited to announce that a short story of mine will be published in the first half of 2016!
The story is called “Life and Death in the Frozen City”, I wrote it many, many years ago, for an anthology on prostitution in science fiction, and only recently decided to try to send out to publishers again.
Happily, it was accepted! It will be published in April, in the anthology FUTURISTICA, VOLUME ONE.
I am pretty much overjoyed by this, as this is both the first short story I wrote as an adult, and the first story I’ve ever managed to sell to a publication.
Watch this space for further details in the coming months!
