Well dear readers, I have ultra mega exciting news, but I am waiting until it’s “official” before I broadcast it. So for now I will try and hold my tongue (but seriously though I am having a tough time doing it).
In the mean time, here are some things for you!
Episode 6 of Forgotten is up! “Waiting” presented even more of a challenge as far as asynchonicity goes; there are a few passages which diverge for quite some length before meeting up again. This one took a few takes to get right. 😉 Hope you enjoy!
Aaaand, some more kitty pictures!
The cat shelves I built continue to be a huge success. Lemon took to them right away, but Echo was a little hesitant; after only three instances of me ‘helping’ her up there though, she’s really taken a liking to them.
And I canned peaches yesterday! But there was something a little strange about one of them at the top of the box… I began gathering clues as to what could have possibly happened to it. A mystery was afoot!
Haha I think it was the most adorable way to have a bruised peach.
Oh an check out this one last thing; all these egg yolks went into making ice cream for Aaron’s birthday (way back in July- just getting around to uploading tons of photos now haha). They were from two different cartons of eggs, if you’re wondering about the difference in colour (free run -vs- not).
Made for some delicious vanilla ice cream!
So that’s all for now folks. I’m expecting my copies of Zombies Galore in the mail, and am looking forward to reading some good ol’ fashioned zombie short stories! (That’s the one where you can look inside and read my piece “Monday Matinee Madness”!)
Next post is best post.
Thanks for reading.
Well dear readers, today I have much to share with you!
Zombies Galore is live, and my piece “Monday Matinee Madness” opens and sets the tone for the collection. You can actually read my contribution in its entirety for free! Just “Look Inside”, and because mine is the opening story, you can check it out, which I’m quite pleased about. 🙂
Now onto the latest from my Mathematical Husband, who is persisting on creating these mesmerizing and oddly satisfying pieces of art with his laser cut Wild Gears. This video shows him using a gear-in-a-gear-*in-a-gear*. Pretty impressive.
And now for another thing you can check out. Forgotten is my strange little audo project which I’m going to keep calling an Oddcast. I’ve just put up episode 5 for you, and it’s called “Choices”. We’re getting better at this.
I’ll leave it at that. Thanks for stopping by.
Well folks, this is that “audio project” I’ve been mentioning. I have created several episodes of a little project called “Forgotten” and I’m going to share them with you here.
I don’t quite know how to describe it… I’m calling the genre “oddcast”. They are all short, between 1 and 3 minutes. I hope you enjoy them.

Hello wonderful readers!
It has been a lovely summer. Still waiting on queries to trickle back to me. I sent out a few snail mail queries to some really stellar agents. I imagine the volume of queries an agent receives is far less if they ONLY accept snail mail queries. Maybe I will be one of dozens instead of one of hundreds!
On to GOOD NEWS EVERYONE!
I have a story appearing in a zombie anthology- Zombies Galore will feature my story, “Monday Matinee Madness” as well as many others which are sure to add up to one horrific anthology of the undead!
The cover art, by Stephen Cooney.
It is edited by T.M. McLean, and some of the other stories to look forward to are:
There are some others as well! I am so glad that this anthology finally is going to print- it’s been quite a process. A big thanks to Theresa Derwin for getting it back off the ground!
In other news, that audio-project I mentioned earlier is starting to take shape. Several episodes are recorded, and now I’m working on mixing them. Soon my pretties, soon. I can’t wait to share them with you (you’ll see them here first of course, my dear, dear readers).
As always, thanks for reading.
