It’s September now; the leaves begin to turn, and a young man’s thoughts turn to . . . writing, I guess. I’ve got a few announcements, and a reiteration of my travel plans so let’s get started:
Firstly, I am pleased to announce that my short-story “A Loss for Words” will be appearing in the anthology Dark Faith, coming out from Apex next year. This is going to be a lovely anthology, featuring some quality stories from folks I respect, so I am thrilled to be part of the contents.
From our “So excited I squeak” office, I’m equally pleased to announce that my novella Hearts and Minds was picked up by Samhain. I’m very thrilled about this, both because it’s a story I’m right chuffed about and because Samhain are really the leading edge when it comes to digital / print publishing. They do romance very well-especially non-standard romances like SF, Fantasy and ParRom-and I’m really pleased to be part of the family. Hearts and Minds is slated to come out in February, so expect to hear a lot more about it by then.
Keeping up with Appearances:
In September, I’ll be visiting the Texas for the Game Developer’s Conference. It’s the biggest and best for folks who work in the video game industry, and I’m thrilled for the chance to attend.
Finally, I’ll be closing out the year with an All Hallow’s trip to San Jose, CA and this year’s World Fantasy Convention. That should bring a busy, but productive year to a close, at least conventions-wise. Soon it will be time to plan for next year — where does the time go?
