#PrideMonth Giveaway winners announcement!

Thank you so much to everyone who participated in the giveaway! It’s the first time I’ve done anything like this, and despite the anxiety of not getting it right and various tech fails, it went much better than I was initially anticipating!

I’m especially grateful for everyone who signed up for my New Release Mailing List. It’s been kind of amazing to see people express interest in hearing from me about future projects.

Anyway, without further ado, the two winners of the giveaway are Julia and Mia. You’ve both gotten an email with a copy of The Running Bunny #8, so please let me know if gmail doesn’t deliver it within the next 24 hours.

Thank you, again, to everyone who participated, signal boosted and generally expressed support for the idea of me doing something like this. It’s definitely not the last time, so I’ll see you when I next have free stuff to give out!

A Giveaway for #PrideMonth!

running_20bunny_20issue_20cover_20_238_400wIt’s Pride Month! And I’ve decided to do my first giveaway. I’ve never done anything like this before, but being able to give away your own work has always seemed to me like one of the funnest parts of getting published, so.

I’ll be giving away a copy of The Running Bunny #8, featuring among other things my short story The Princess and the Demon, a feel good queer fantasy about, well, a princess and a demon. You will also get gorgeous illustrations of my story by Ursula Gray as part of the package!

 

Rules – the short version

 

Rules – the longer version

The only thing you have to do to enter the giveaway is sign up for my New Release Mailing List. I’ve recently set it up to let people know when I have a new story out. If you sign up you’ll likely receive a few emails a year, if I’m very prolific. I won’t use the mailing list for anything else, and of course, you can always unsubscribe.

If you want to increase your chances of winning the giveaway, you can also follow me on Twitter.

So, with that in mind, you can either enter the giveaway or read on for more details about what’s next for me, writing-wise. (Or you could do both, it’s a free internet.)

 

Novella news!

Friends, last night I finally finished the (hopefully) final draft of my scifi novella! \o/ I started the first draft of this thing in 2007! It’s incredible to see it so close to done. I wish I could tell you the title, but I’m still torn on what it should be. Current options are either: Transfer Day  or Weeds on the Shoreline. If you’d like to weigh in on this, comments on this entry or votes on Twitter are most welcome.

The story takes place at a military boarding school in space and revolves around four protagonists. I don’t have an official summary yet, but I can tell you three of them are women, two of them are queer, one is a disgraced veteran, and all four have secrets to keep. More details as I figure out what’s next! Will it be accepted by the handful of places that take novellas? Will I publish it here for free for your enjoyment? Stay tuned.

Or, you know,
