Over the past month, some exciting things have happened. Including that my BOOK CAME OUT. I had a release party in Iowa and it went very well. If you pre-ordered, your copy should be getting to you soon! If you’d still like to get a copy, it’s available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and through the publisher.

 

In February, I published a few pieces. I have been following the amazing Little Fiction for years and I was so delighted that they published my piece Balancing Beams. Over at the lovely Third Point Press, I have another space story up—Out in the Night, I Found Myself Falling.

 

Additionally, I had a piece of fiction over at wonderful Former Cactus, Everyone’s at Our Place, Even Though We’re Gone and a poem in the awesome Hypertrophic Press called It’s the Horror of My Friends That We Say Mean Things About Blondes.

 

On the topic of space, over at Nerds of a Feather I did an interview with the amazing Brian Ramos about space and its representation in sci-fi media and pop culture.  He’s a great interviewee with interesting thoughts and I hope you check it out! I also reviewed The Ritual at NOAF.

 

Charity Month at Cotton Xenomorph went so well, thanks to the wonderful writing community, and we raised almost $350 for various organizations and causes!
