Vote in Podcastle’s Flash Fiction Contest!

Hello everyone! So I have entered a short story in Podcastle’s recent Flash Fiction Contest, and you have the opportunity to help me out and vote in the Escape Artists forums.


All you have to do is become a member of the Escape Artists forums, and make at least one post in a thread to prove that you are not a spam bot. Then you will be able to read over all of the submissions and vote for which ones you like best.

Stories are posted anonymously and author names revealed after the competition ends, but I can tell you that my story is still in the running. So give them a read and see if you can catch my writing style among a lot of brilliant fantasy stories.

Announcing my story in “Utter Fabrication” with Mad Scientist Journal

I am very happy to announce that my short story “Can’t Be Locked Down” will be appearing as a part of the Utter Fabrication anthology, published by Mad Scientist Journal.


The anthology as a whole deals with haunted or otherwise paranormal structures, from houses to hospitals to anything man made. “Can’t Be Locked Down” goes to the very, very small end of this spectrum. Have you ever wanted to read about a haunted bike rack? Well, now you can!

Find the whole table of contents here and keep your eyes peeled for the release date.

Fundraising for the Night of Writing Dangerously

I have participated in National Novel Writing Month (Nanowrimo) for the past three years, and it has been a wonderful experience every time, whether I managed to complete the challenge or not (my record is currently 2 out of 3). And being fortunate enough to live in the Bay Area, I was able last year to attend the Night of Writing Dangerously, an all-night Nanowrimo event in San Francisco. It was a wonderful opportunity to be in a room with that many writers and that much creative energy, and I would love to be able to repeat that experience this year.

I am currently fundraising for Nanowrimo’s youth writing programs in order to secure my ticket to the Night of Writing Dangerously. If anyone could please consider donating in my name to their cause, I would greatly appreciate the help and the chance to participate again. Any amount is welcome and I would be very grateful. Thank you, and I would love to hear about anyone else’s Nanowrimo experiences!
