It's here, it's here! Respectable Horror, edited by K.A. Laity, is out from Fox Spirit Books today and readily available on Amazon in the U.S. and U.K. as well as sundry bookstores. More outlets coming soon!


I will also have copies available at my April readings, including the one at Bingley's Teas. And Bingley's is just down the street from the MIA, which is hosting Guillermo del Toro's "At Home with Monsters" for the next two months. Plus a showing of Crimson Peak, just saying.

Other things of note:
- I got our yard designated as a "Pollinator Friendly Zone" by the City of Minneapolis. It's a cool program - answer 10 questions about your yard and get a flat of bee-friendly plants, a sign and a certificate. Our yard is ruthlessly organic and our landscaper put in some plants that are like bee catnip so it's nice to have that recognized.
- I attempted to go and volunteer at the MN Advocates for Human Rights International Women's Day miniconference on Saturday, but they had enough warm bodies so instead I went to a couple of interesting talks, one on Basic Income Guarantees and how it could be set up and the other by the Women's Initiative for Self Empowerment, which works with refugee and immigrant kids, teens and young women to help them access scholarships, mentors, job training, assistance with language skills and related stuff.
I followed that up by going to a several short plays about domestic violence at Theatre Unbound
to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Susan Glaspell's play, "Trifles."

Hoping to make it to a City Council candidate talk on affordable housing tomorrow night and planning on going to a Restaurants Rising, a citywide benefit for the Immigration Law Center of MN on 3/15. We'll see how all jives with needing to fix website problems, finish another Emily story and get some publicity stuff together for Queen of Swords Press as well as the next book. We like to keep it lively around here at least.
