I am honored that my scribblings have been an influence on someone else's writing. Writing is a lonely pursuit, and many times I have wondered if anyone at all was reading what I write. It is nice to know that someone is paying attention :)

Been a little out of touch

The only thing I wrote in the last year was a book review for Cascade Subduction Zone. That was it. Nothing more. I got 10 bucks for it, and I nearly lost the check. But..... I am back. I am starting to write, I have updated my security blog, and I am ready to rumble. Fair warning.

In Blood and Song sold!

My collaberation with the amazing Nisi Shawl has borne fruit! "In Blood and Song" will be in the upcoming Dark Faith II anthology. It is a story set in Africa, full of Dembe boxing, meat cutting, magic, conspiracy, lies and a riot. You know, a love story.

More pulpy goodness coming

A work in progress --- 2000+ words in a burst. Alternate history pulpy steampunk aireal war story set in 1930's Paraguay, with steam powered difference engines, and dirigibles. You know, a love story. Hope to finish it this weekend.

Writing again!

Just finished writing two short sendups of classic cozy mysteries, "Orange Juice and Paris Green" and "Mrs. Clive-Harris Solves a Mystery" --- and had a blast writing them. Sending to crit for a final tune up and then looking for a market. Usually I write to a market, or because someone asked me for a story. These were purely for fun.
