I wasn’t planning on posting today. Dani Greer, she of the Blood-Red Pencil and the Blog Book Tour, says she’s going to issue a blog-post-a-day-for-a-month challenge, and it’s hardly a challenge if I already do it, is it? So I was going to stick my hands in my pocketses, gaze at the ceiling and whistle nonchalantly while I let the day pass without posting.

HOWEVER, I got an email from Karen Syed at Echelon Press (my–ahem–publisher), instructing all her authors to check their names in the catalog and make sure all their links were there and active.  So I went, and I was like–OMG! (Oh, my goodness, you know.) OMG OMG OMG! I’m in a freakin’ publisher’s catalog again! I love selling short stories–LOVE it, do you understand? (clink, clink), and being in LOCUS is a trip–but there’s something so heart-warming about seeing one’s name in a publisher’s catalog.

Lalala-lalalala! Doin’ a happy little dance!

WRITING PROMPT: Write a character who intends to refrain from doing something but does it anyway. It can be a bad thing or a good thing.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      Yeah–a YouTube video! And I couldn’t watch it, because I’m on dial-up. That’s the story of my life! heh!
