Head on over to this post on the Glitter Collective if you’d like to be read to by me, in an unedited way, from Wonder City Stories
My newest project with some of my friends who are talented writers and thinkers is called the Glitter Collective, a bunch of LGBTQIA+ folks with wide and varied interests and expertises. It’s basically a space where folks can write what they want, without having to produce enough content to support their own blog. Who has enough spoons to do that, really, in these days and times?
We have a Patreon — our first goal is to get enough patrons to support the site (webhosting, domain, etc), and then we’ll see where things go.
As we kick off 2020, our first recurring content will be my cyberpunk novella, Mother[up]lode. The first episode will post tomorrow, New Year’s Day! The first 3 episodes will post weekly, and after that, every other week, with patrons getting early access a week ahead of time.
Meanwhile, other folks will start posting — some one-offs, like Sepdet’s translations of Sappho, but hopefully we’ll have some other series as things take off, and we’ll link out to folks’ adventures elsewhere. Come check us out!
I am fortunate enough to have been invited to join an LGBT+ Storybundle by the curator, Melissa Scott, for Pride!
WONDER CITY STORIES is part of the basic set of FIVE EBOOKS you can get. From the page:
“Pay what you want! You choose how much you want to pay for these awesome books. You decide how much of your purchase goes to the author and how much goes to help keep StoryBundle running. If your purchase price beats $15, you get Vintage: A Ghost Story by Steve Berman, Point of Hopes by Melissa Scott and Lisa A. Barnett, Death by Silver by Melissa Scott and Amy Griswold, The Kissing Booth Girl and Other Stories by A.C. Wise, The Marshal’s Lover by Jo Graham, Trafalgar and Boone in the Drowned Necropolis by Geonn Cannon and Silver Moon by Catherine Lundoff!”
In addition to getting these amazing books, you can help us raise money for Rainbow Road!
Here I am with the book! Both villainous and nonvillainous views.
My contribution is an ALL-NEW NEVER-SEEN-BEFORE story about Nereid and Brainchild, following the events of EPHEMERA. It stands alone pretty well, too, so if you want to give a friend an introduction to the Wonder City Stories universe PLUS THE WORK OF TWELVE OTHER AWESOME WRITERS, this is the book for you!
You can buy it in paperback or ebook at Northwest Press!
“Experto Crede” is a story about a slice of the Equestrian’s life, and how she has to cope with a bad decision she made when she was much younger.
Available on Kindle and also on a number of non-Kindle platforms (like Kobo, Apple, B&N, etc.)
At some point in the nearish future, I plan to release another short story, and will eventually release “Truth, Lady Justice, and the American Way” to other platforms than the Kindle (it was my experiment in Kindle Direct; it didn’t work, now I have to wait for it to unenroll).
I am on 2 panels and doing one reading at Wiscon 40 this coming weekend. You can also find me at the Broad Universe table, selling Wonder City Stories and other books from other Broads!

Look at me! I’m a new author website!
So I’m doing the final proofs of the interior of Wonder City Stories, and I just have to say it’s beautiful work, and as a technical writer who does a lot of my own layout, I can appreciate the work that goes into it. The cover is also coming soon, with its shiny new logo and stunning artwork.
This novel thing is happening!
Meanwhile, I’m working on a short story for a soon-to-be announced anthology, as well as managing to still get mostly weekly posts up for the Wonder City Stories web serial. In case you’re new to Wonder City, I’m posting episodes for volume 4 of the series. At some point soon, I’m going to figure out how to crosspost those episodes here, but that day is not today. 🙂 If you’d like to see the entire episode list for the serial, check out the Table of Contents page.
