New Story Sale + 2x Reprints

Hey Readers! 2019 has started off with a bang for me. The first bit of news is that I sold a story to Clarkesworld Magazine! It’s called “Move Forward, Disappear, Transcend”. This is particularly exciting for me because I’ve been reading Clarkesworld for as long as I’ve been writing and submitting stories to them for almost that long too. I’m not sure when the story will be published yet, but I’ll update the “Publications” page when I find out.

My second bit of news is that “A Place to Grow” which was originally published in Beneath Ceaseless Skies is getting reprinted. Twice!

The first reprint is at Podcastle, which will narrate the story on their podcast. This the second time I’ve had a story reprinted here.

The second reprint is a translation in the Chinese magazine Science Fiction World. This is also the second time I’ll have a story translated in this magazine!

If you’re the type of person who likes some background on the artist’s processes for each piece, (I know I am), you can read about the origins of “A Place to Grow” here.

That’s all I got! Happy 2019 everyone!

Parsec Award Nomination!

Earlier this year, “A Non-Hero’s Guide to the Road of Monster” was narrated and podcasted by Podcastle. Earlier this week, I found out this episode has been nominated for the Parsec Award in the category of Best Speculative Fiction: Short Form!

The Parsec Award was first started in 2006 to honor Speculative Fiction Podcasting. Every year fans submit their nominations and from them, a steering committee chooses the finalists. Then, a panel of judges chooses the winner.

I’m so excited that this story has been nominated! Special thanks to Khaalidah Muhammed-Ali and Jen R. Albert, the editors of Podcastle and the narrator, Mike Flinchum.

It’s uncertain when winners will be announced, but I’ll keep you posted! (The pun, of course, is intended.)
