New Publication – Pyg the Tinker

My short story “Pyg the Tinker” was published by the online literary journal Quantum Fairy Tales. This is my steampunk take on the Greek myth of Pygmalion (not the George Bernard Shaw Pygmalion). Pyg the Tinker passed his days in his workshop, and his nights in the Spartan bedroom behind it. He chose a lifeContinue reading “New Publication – Pyg the Tinker”

With a Fizzle…

So I did Camp NaNoWriMo for July. Technically, I’ll have won once I verify my word count. Yet, this is the least exciting victory yet. Back in April, I churned through 30,000 words for Camp NaNo and felt genuinely accomplished. It was a challenge, but not impossible.

I Think I’m Not a Planner

I’ve spent the last few weeks thinking about planning my NaNoWriMo book. Please note that thinking is the key word there. I’ve been trying to figure out the best way to take 12-ish years worth of ideas and slap them on paper as an outline that is actually of any benefit. So far, I haveContinue reading “I Think I’m Not a Planner”

Review: Stormy Persuasion

Also today, you can read my review of Stormy Persuasion by Johanna Lindsey over at All About Romance. It gets a C+ for a boring start but likable characters.  I was nervous going in to this read. I have been the biggest Johanna Lindsey fan since I first started reading romance, but unfortunately, a lotContinue reading “Review: Stormy Persuasion”
