Way...way too much has been happening in my life. Suffice it to say, I finished my short story Sun-Touched and sending it out to markets, and I'm putting all my energy into editing Willow. I'll post more on that, but for now, I have a couple of announcements:
LAVENDER & CHAMOMILE REPRINTED IN A RUSTLE OF LEAVES ANTHOLOGY
I'm pleased to announce that my short story "Lavender and Chamomile" has been reprinted in the anthology A Rustle of Dark Leaves: Tales for the Shadows of the Forest, edited by Inanna Gabriel and published by Misanthrope Press. From the website:
Step among the trees and discover the tales that lurk within the shadows that fall across the forest floor. From the words of the Forest himself to the ancient gods who defend him, from those who dwell within to those who merely wander, these fifteen tales of the forest will intrigue, inspire, terrify, and enchant.
Includes stories by Alexis A. Hunter, Gerri Leen, LaShawn M. Wanak, Jenni Wiltz, Seth Drake, and many more, with an introduction by Cory Thomas Hutcheson. A Rustle of Dark Leaves: Tales from the Shadows of the Forest is sure to leave you with the camping lantern on and the tent zipped tight.
MY WISCON 36 SCHEDULE
This year's Wiscon will be a little busy for me since I am this year's liaison for one of the Guests of Honor at Wiscon 36: Andrea Hairston, author of Mindscape and the 2011 Tiptree winner Redwood and Wildfire. Because of this, I'm keeping my schedule pretty light:
Friday, May 26, I'll be moderating the Religious Agenda in SF panel in Conference 4 at 4pm. We will discuss such works as The Chronicles of Narnia, Left Behind, Battlefield Earth and other stories that have a clear religious bias.
Then, on Saturday, May 27 I'm part of the Exotic Worlds reading group at Michelangelo's at 1pm. I'll be reading an excerpt from the short story I just finished, "Sun-Touched". Even if you aren't going to Wiscon, stop on by!
Finally, just a brief, brief note that I'm going to Chicon this year! More info on that in a later post, but they just announced that the opening night will be held at the Adler Planetarium. Can you say SQUEE!!!! I knew you could.
