Here we are in a new year, and I have new publication news! But first: I've registered for this year's AWP Conference in Portland. If you'll be there too, stop by the Wayward and Unchaste table (table T2060) at the Bookfair! I'll be volunteering there for part of the conference. If I'm there, say hello! If I'm not, give your greetings to the wonderful women working the table, and buy an armful of merch if possible.
Now to the writing: I have THREE publications lined up for 2019 already! I've never had so many things in the pipeline at once. In the second half of 2018, I decided to make an effort to submit as many of my unpublished pieces as possible, in the hope of getting them published but also to encourage me to write new material to replace them. I am VERY encouraged.
First off, my poem "Widow's Walk" has been selected for the Unchaste Anthology Vol. 3, which is scheduled to come out in late March and should be available at the table at AWP, while the copies last. I'd been looking for the right place for that poem for a while, and I'm thrilled that it found a home in this anthology.
Second, my short story "Shelter" will appear in the upcoming anthology edited by the hosts of Seattle's own Two Hour Transport, a fantastic genre fiction reading series that I've featured at twice, most recently in October. The anthology is scheduled for release in the first quarter of 2019, so I'm on track to have a busy spring! Details will be provided as soon as I have them.
And last but not least, my short story "Sargasso" will appear in an upcoming issue of Supernatural Tales! Which issue/release date is still TBD, but you'll know when I know.
In the meantime, I'm working on some new projects and trying to stay dry here in the wintry PNW. More updates soon!
