WIP Wednesday

wipIt has been forever since I’ve done one of these! But not only is Work in Progress Wednesday useful to let you guys know what I’m up to, but it also reminds me. My head is like a huge tornado with things flying around it all of the time, like flowers, bits of houses, and happy cows. Sometimes I need to write it all out so I can concentrate. 🙂

I just: signed a couple of contracts. One for a podcast, a breast cancer charity anthology, a dark fiction anthology, a re-release (but with a new story from me), and another re-release. So that’s three reprints and two new stories. I’ll share as soon as everything is announced. 🙂

I was a guest judge for a short story contest and a poetry contest. I also submitted two new stories to super cool venues.

I am actively working on: a short story/novelette called “Last One Awake” that I started a few years ago. It gnaws at me. I’m also writing three short stories for three anthology invitations, and working on a Super Sekrit and AWESOME project that’s out of my normal wheelhouse. I am so excited and nervous and sure I’m doing everything wrong! But I want to do everything. I want to learn how to do it all. Baby steps, yeah?

What are you working on? I’d love to hear about your WIP!

 

Audiobooks Coming Soon!

2013-09-09_11-12-22_511

Ladies and Gentlemen, I’m delighted to say that Nameless: The Darkness Comes and Pretty Little Dead Girls: A Novel of Murder and Whimsy will both be turned into Audiobooks! That contract was inked, and I’m quite excited. I will not be recording them myself. They’ll actually hire a new, amazing actress who has oodles of talent.

I am, however, narrating Beautiful Sorrows.  It’s completely ready except for a few overdubs. The only problem is that Mason and I have a heck of a time getting together in order to finish the final recording. But hopefully it will be soon!

And yes, I’m recording in a closet. That picture makes me laugh.

Recording it has been a dream of mine, and I’m quite happy. I’m also thrilled to hear somebody else narrate my work. This is just cool all around.
