Book acceptance! A new crew is coming in 2023!

I did a teaser trailer about a cool thing that I announced yesterday! THOSE WITH LIGHT SENSITIVITY: I didn’t have a problem with the flickering border under the text or brief flash of light near the end (I have light sensitivity myself and didn’t find it that intense), but here’s a warning that it starts …

You beta believe I needed those readers!

Last week, I did a thing! I submitted Iris and the Crew Tear Through Space! to the wonderful Renaissance, who has been the publisher of my previous novels and the anthologies I’ve co-edited.

Cover Reveal for Space Opera Libretti

So, in late 2018, I saw a call for non-dystopian, comedic short stories in the space opera genre that involve music. The anthology name: Space Opera Libretti. My eyes perked, and I immediately knew I wanted to write for this. I love classic literature, which is probably why there’s an Austen-esque ball scene in the …
