Thoughts in Passing
As we approach the holidays, the publishing industry slooooooooowwwws way down. Many magazines close for the month of December. Very few new magazines choose to start up during this time (January is a different story). So if you have something you want to send out on submission, get it out now, before Thanksgiving happens in the United States. Skip sending out submissions in December, as many publications will be on hiatus anyway. Take a break, write new things, and spend time with family and friends!

What I've been up to lately, writing-wise:

This month, I performed at a couple of big reading events. It went well! One was for a new release that I have a couple of stories in, The Subverted Fairy Project, a collaboration between artists and writers. If you enjoy twisted fairy tales, art, or flash fiction, I recommend it!

Subverted Fairy Project - cover.jpg also posted a wonderful and completely unexpected review of The Unkindness of Ravens, my epic fantasy novella. Squee!

Space Opera Libretti wants fun, light space opera.

We've decided there's enough grim and dark in the real world without creating more of it as entertainment. And looking out on the publishing landscape we see a distinct shortage of anthologies of light, happy, FUN SF/F. In fact, we can count the number of such anthologies without resorting to two digits in binary. That's right, there's just ONE. It's a very good anthology, but it's carrying a heavy load.

To summarize, we need a more inclusive space opera. Fewer Nazis. No Cthulhu. Better representation for women, especially women of color. Better representation for the whole QUILTBAG-P+/-, Disabled persons. #ownvoices. Sure, we like stories with white guys who fight off evil... In space. Hey, who doesn't like space? You're living in it, you know. But there are other stories. We'd like to read them. We'd like to PUBLISH them for others to read.

Basics: SF space opera, 2,500 - 7,000 words, reprints accepted, pay depends on Kickstarter (goal $.06/wd), due 12/31/2018. Guidelines:
