I've got a new interview up at author Vonnie Winslow Crist's "Whimsical Words" blog about editing Scourge of the Seas of Time (and Space) and anthology editing in general. If you like what you read, I'm also offering an online class on anthology editing at Cat Rambo's Wayward Writer's Academy on 4/6.

Upcoming events:
  • Not-So-Silent Planet: Love and Lust - February 19th, Kieran's Irish Pub, Minneapolis, 8-10PM. I'll be reading some Emily L. Byrne prose, along with readings by other fine local authors and performers and you should come!
  • Nerds of a Feather - March 8th. I've got a Six Books Interview going up - I get to recommend some books!
  • Running a Small Press - March 21, DreamHaven Books, Minneapolis, 6:30-7:45PM. This is the sequel to my previous presentation on running a small press, this one on how you keep going, what I've learned so far, etc.
  • Next up: ClexaCon info, UntitledTown updates, WisCon updates, when I have them
Current state: wrangling snow, day jobbery and deadlines and wishing I had more time to write.

Now for the question: I've got a couple of stories up at Curious Fictions, a newish platform where you can post reprint short fiction, serials, etc., one free, one at the subscriber level. So far, I've got no interest whatsoever - no followers, no subscribers, nada. I'm wondering what, if anything, I could do to make this a more appealing platform for both folks who already like my work and those just discovering it. Should I post more short fiction? Serialize a novel draft? Give up? If I go with the novel draft, it would be my alternate Regency about the Fay trying to stop the Industrial Revolution. I would love to hear from people on this, especially if you're already using the platform as a writer or reader. Thus far, whenever I post public questions along these lines, the only response I get is from the platform operators earnestly informing me that if I just did more work, I could make this site work for me, which is entertaining, but not all that useful. Tell me what you want and I'll see what I can deliver on.

First the interview. The delightful Loren Rhoads invited me to her blog to answer 5 Questions, most of them about Scourge of the Seas of Time (and Space). I've got a couple of these coming up on various author blogs - huge thanks to my hosts! Please check out Loren's blog and books.

The MN Women's Art Festival went splendidly and Jana and I both sold lots of things. And then I woke up on Sunday with Hell Cold still in full play, an ear infection and a migraine. Then today, I discovered that the ear infection is kind of a big deal so I'm on several antibiotics and still in a fair amount of pain. Sigh. I do, of course, have a
Scourge of the Seas of Time reading coming up on Thursday night at Eat My Words Bookstore and a Queer Author Holiday Sale and Benefit at the L Spot on Saturday. Plus a play in between. There were tons of things I wanted to do this week and none of them involved having a massive infection that may work its way into the bones of my ear (this was joyous news). So please root for the antibiotics. If they don't dent this thing by tomorrow, I have to go for more intensive things and really don't want that. Also, I want to go see "The Favourite" while it's still in town. Sigh.

Also, come to our events. And please buy books. You'll like them, really.
