Mythaxis Magazine is out today and my story Alight is in it! This was one of my submission stories for Viable Paradise, but I’d despaired of it ever finding a home. I’m still astounded that it has. And all the other stories in the issue are so damn good. And the story art by Andrew Leon Hudson captures the exact abandon-hope-all-ye-who-enter vibe I was going for.
Friends! I have a story coming out in Mythaxis Magazine. I’m beyond thrilled to have my weird little nightclub fire tale in this delightful publication. Coming soon!
Friends! I’m reading at Literary Speakeasy next week alongside these wonderful writers. Come have a drink with us and I’ll tell you the story about the girl with the magic eyeballs. Or the one about the DJ who gets kidnapped by the fae for a dance underneath the Van Ness Muni station. I haven’t decided.

The Songbird Thief was just awarded a silver medal in the Young Adult Paranormal/Sci-Fi category by the Florida Authors and Publishers Association. I am amazed! And very grateful to the Dreamspinner Press and Harmony Ink Press crews.
The Songbird Thief is a finalist for the 2017 Golden Crown Literary Society Award for Young Adult Fiction. The Goldies are presented each year to recognize excellence in lesbian literature.
Please help me find my jaw; I seem to have dropped it.
I got all overeager and announced that I would be reading at an event I am not, in fact, reading at. Oh, my errant enthusiasms.
So I am NOT reading on Monday, March 13 at Dog Eared Books in San Francisco on the Perfectly Queer event, but I will be there to listen because Ellen Klages! And the other readers, M. Christian and Vylar Kaftan, look splendid.
And I AM reading on Wednesday, March 22 at Nomadic Press Uptown in Oakland. I adore Nomadic Press and I could not be more excited to meet Kwan Booth and Na’amen Tilahun. What should I wear?
I’m reading on Perfectly Queer in March! 3/13 in San Francisco and 3/22 in Oakland. Perfectly Queer is a reading series run by the truly excellent Richard May and Wayne Goodman, who do tons to bring LGBTQIA authors and literature forward on shelves and events and generally raise awareness of the queer written word. Thanks, Rick and Wayne! More details to come.
Here’s the belated proof that The Songbird Thief did indeed get launched one swell night at The Octopus Literary Salon, with some marvelous readings by Andrew Demcak and Arisa White and some fine guitar tunes by Steve Luntz and my best poet David West as our MC.
