News and things

Hello, neglected blog!

I've been busy so far this year with my new job as Editor of a weekly newspaper. As it turns out that is a lot of work, and it's also taught me some things about being a needy writer type that are probably good for me to remember. In super brief: assume there's no problem if you don't hear from an editor! She's much more likely to find time to contact you if something's wrong than if all is well. If you'd like to check out the paper, which is a niche publication for the Norwegian American community, visit

But, in actual writing news:

• I'm involved in a project called That Ain't Right: Historical Accounts from the Miskatonic Valley. It has a kickstarter that ends in six days, and even though it's already funded (woo!) there's still time to unlock reward tiers and cool stuff.

After Death, an anthology containing my story "Final Testament of a Weapons Engineer," has been nominated for a Bram Stoker Award! This is absolutely in no part due to my story, but it's still fun to be connected to a project receiving that kind of recognition.

• I still haven't signed the contract on this last one, so no details yet, but I sold a story to one of the major SF markets. Whee!
