Anything Can Happen on Halloween

Happy Halloween, hon!
"Thirty-Six Interrogatories Propounded by the Human-Powered Plasma Bomb in the Moments Before Her Imminent Detonation," my flash story with the title that's too hot for Twitter, is now up at Daily Science Fiction! It's not all that spooooooky, but it's pretty depressing.

Also pleased to announce that my story "The Silent Ones" will be appearing in an upcoming issue of Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet. A bit of backstory: in 2008 I essentially quit writing for a host of reasons. Mostly because I wasn't interested in writing anymore, but also because some folks had let me know that I was just too crazy to be a writer. I was also too wiped out from my day job to write (something that continues to this day although I've found ways to imperfectly power through). Yet, this story's concept nagged at me, so I took two days off work to write it. I submitted it off and on but I was well and fully done with writing by then so I didn't care much if it was published. When I un-quit in mid-2011, I took a good look at this one and realized that while it had some pretty words, it didn't make a whole lot of sense. So, a coherent plot or something close enough was added. I am thrilled to be in a publication that's featured so many awesome writers over the years, and I hope you'll check it out!

Non-spammy posts will be coming soon, I swear....
