Cheap Smut!

I just love writing subject lines like that one. Just realized that Circlet Press’ ebook anthology Like Twin Stars: Bisexual Erotic Stories is available for sale. You can find it here, near the bottom of the page. It’s super-cheap, considering it’s an ebook and there’s only three stories in it (20,000 words total) — just […]

Clarkesworld Story & Interview Live!

Yee! My fantasy-Brooklyn short story “Non-Zero Probabilities” is now live at Clarkesworld. For those who attended the reading at Bluestockings Books last month, this is the story I read there. Also, there’s an interview up with me and several other “emerging writers” — many of whom I know, hi guys! — in which I get […]

Self-promoteyness

OK, so here’s the thing: I’ve got a reading (11:00 a.m.) and a signing (5:00 p.m.) on Saturday at Anticipation. I’m sharing the reading with 2 other writers who are better-known than me, and the signing is fairly pointless since I have, y’know, no book out yet. So I was feeling fairly mopey about both […]

Reminder: reading tonight!

Diaspora of the Fantastic made TimeOut New York! Except I’m “others”. Alas. Anyway, I’m going to be reading from “Non-Zero Probabilities”, a new (unpublished) short story that I just finished revising at 3 a.m. this morning when, in a fit of angst, I decided I could not could not COULD NOT read the piece I’d […]

Diaspora of the Fantastic this Thursday!

Just a reminder — this coming Thursday I’m going to be doing a reading with some other phenomenal black women writers at BlueStockings Books in NYC. Details and RSVP here, though the RSVP isn’t absolutely necessary. The readers will be li’l ol’ me, Bram Stoker award-winner Linda Addison; Alaya Dawn Johnson, who’s already got one […]

I got Mind Melded! Post Launch Pad

Am back from Launch Pad. Much to relate, in particular my conviction that Gay Haldeman is the nicest person in the solar system, but it’ll have to wait ’til I’ve processed things a bit and also until after I’ve finished the Book 2 revision, which I am now slightly behind schedule on. Going to finish […]

Radios down, readings a-comin’

For those who follow my Twitter feed or Facebook updates, you already knew about this: this past Saturday morning, I and my writing group went on “Hour of the Wolf” on WBAI (99.5 FM, for those in the NYC area), Jim Freund’s phenomenal crackadawn science fictional radio show. It’s been running for as long as […]

Verb Noire’s First Book!

Hi folks. Those of you who followed RaceFail 2009 may also be aware of one of its many positive results: Verb Noire, a new small press started up for the purpose of showcasing authors and characters of color in science fiction and fantasy. Well, I’m happy to report that their first novel, The River’s Daughter, […]

Good reads of many kinds

Over on LJ, author Cat Valente is going through some hard times, and is offering a novel literary experiment to make ends meet. Basically, she’ll post her latest chapters of her latest work for people to read and pay for as she goes along. I can’t donate at the moment because I’m kind of struggling […]

The Million Writers Award

No, I’m not up for it. But a friend and colleague of mine is — Kris Dikeman, whose phenomenal story “Nine Sundays in a Row” got quite justifiably nominated. This contest is a “reader’s choice” award, so you can vote for the story you like best. You don’t have to vote for Kris, of course… […]
