It’s been a busy time lately. On July 1, I hosted another edition of Ghostlight LIT, featuring 8 Dayton, Ohio-based authors and poets in a relaxed coffeehouse setting. Like our April version of this event, this one was well-attended and a big hit. The next outing for this series will be in October and will feature a Halloween/horror theme.
My short story “Found Girl” will be appearing in a women’s fiction holiday anthology from Twenty or Less Press. More information that when I have it!
I’m writing up a storm lately, with many stories and novels in various stages of completion. I’m also very close to the release of my first full-length short story collection, Grinning Cracks. Unlike my chapbooks, this collection will be available in both print and ebook editions, for both Kindle and Nook. Look for more information on that soon!
I’m still working on editing Virginia Bower’s novel The World’s Your Jail, hopefully still coming out sometime in 2012 from Dioscuri Books, but I’ve lately had some very serious computer issues that may delay this slightly. The good news is I’m probably going to get a big system upgrade and learn the importance of making many, many backups in multiple places. The bad news is this may all take a while to get up and running, so bear with me. Let’s all take a moment of silence for my MacBook Pro, which the folks at my local repair shop kindly determined was “vintage.”
