 We shall begin with a lovely review of Alex Acks's Murder on the Titania from reviewer James Davis Nicoll. Can I just say how great it is to see other people love this book as much as I do? I'm really glad that Alex decided to entrust Queen of Swords Press with this book so I'm hoping we can do them proud, as it were. :-D

As part of the Great Possessions Purge of 2018 (I'm downsizing like a mad thing because I really need to), I posted two previously unworn Tiptree Award t-shirts, a steampunk butterkeeper from Aegean Goods Pottery and a stack of feminist sfnal reading materials at the Con or Bust Auction. I've also posted a Queen of Swords Press print book package. Bidding opens 4/9!

I'm planning for Clexa Con in Las Vegas next week, where I'll be tabling with the awesome gals from Blind Eye Books and doing a panel. And I'm turning 55 on Friday so I'm trying to raise $550 for SAGE, a nonprofit that serves LGBTQ+ seniors, in lieu of gifts. (If you're local and want to attend some portion of my bday weekend festivities, feel free to message me here).

Other than this, I've got two short stories out the door, am making progress on novel edits and am wrangling a lot of stuff and am trying to find time to rest, go to movies and read. We'll see how that goes.

In the past couple of weeks, I've seen Black Panther twice, done a bunch of day jobbery stuff and almost got a new book published, so it's been hectic. And I've been terrible at posting. Will try and do better.
  • My new Out of The Past column is up and this time around, I'm looking at the very recent past with an interview with editor and author Bogi Takács about recent trans and nonbinary speculative fiction.
  • My story, "One Night in Saint Martin," about pirates and spies and ladies kissing in the 17th Century Caribbean will be getting a professional reading on Heather Rose Jones's Lesbian Historic Motif Podcast on 3/31, the day after my birthday!
  • Queen of Swords Press will be releasing Alex Acks's Murder on the Titania and Other Steam-Powered Adventures on 4/1. It's currently up for preorder at Amazon and Smashwords, with more platforms coming soon.
  • Speaking of Queen of Swords Press, I really wanted to do an anthology this year, so submissions are open! Send me you pirate stories! Details here.
  • Speaking of my birthday, I'm turning 55 and I don't need much at present so in lieu of gifts, I'm asking folks to donate to my fundraiser for Sage, a nonprofit that works with LGBTQ elders. I'm hoping to raise $550, so please spread the word even if you can't donate.
  • Other than this, I'm writing and rewriting and formatting and trying to get stuff done. Hopefully good news coming soon on various fronts.
