Viral Airwaves 2nd Edition is coming!

CW for quick colour-flashing gif at the end. Be careful if those are a problem to you <3


I am super duper excited to finally announce this!

Viral Airwaves releases once more on November 22nd!

Last August my publisher reverted all of Viral Airwaves’s rights back to me. I decided to use the opportunity to revise a few things that had been bothering me. Nothing story-shattering, but my biggest change is incredibly close to my heart, and I’m happy I had the chance to go back and do this.

So what is this biggest change?

Henry’s asexuality is no longer a subtext of my own. It’s flat out on the page.

Here’s the thing: when Viral Airwaves was written and published two years ago, I was still searching myself. I’d heard of asexuality enough to know I landed on the spectrum, but I’d yet to really examine how it manifested in me, and even less how it influenced my writing. But Henry’s narration was already devoid of clear sexual attraction–it’s always been how I perceived the world, even all those years ago as I worked through the first drafts of this novel (which now has 10! haha). This change is both the biggest and one of the smallest, because it’s always been there, just not stated. Now it is! Stated and validated! 😀 So huzzah for self-discovery and putting more rep out there!

What else changed? I smoothed out Vermen’s growing attachment to Seraphin and removed a bunch of microaggressions. I’ve learned a lot over the last two years and had no reason not to apply it as I reviewed, after all.

TL;DR: This is a better, gayer book, with official ace rep, and more care for the words it uses!

Pre-order it now on Amazon, Kobo, Nook, or iBooks! Paperbacks should be along shortly!

La crise d’octobre

On November 7, I have a new short story released from Solarpunk Press, Le carré rouge, which is a very personal take on Québec and solarpunk, and how the two might entwined. The short draws upon many elements specific to the province’s history and my own activism, and I wanted to talk more about these. La […]

How to Write a Fight Scene, Even if You Don’t Know Shit About Fighting — Part 2: Double Duty and Mistakes

Welcome back to my aptly named mini-series, in which I discuss how I approach fight scenes despite my lack of concrete knowledge of swordfighting (not that you shouldn’t research at all, but there are ways to get away with some basic know-how!). Part 1 served as an introduction, and Part 3 will have a concrete […]

How to Write a Fight Scene, Even if You Don’t Know Shit About Fighting — Part 1 : Introduction

Welcome to a mini-series! It was supposed to be a single post, but as it got longer I decided to split it in three. Which I should have done with that title too, I bet! Part 1 shall be an overview, Part 2 a look into making those scenes work double time for you, and Part […]

Alexis le Trotteur – The Legend, the Real Man, the Retelling

Time to talk about one of my favourite thing in the world: Québec folklore!! At the end of this month, Circuits & Slippers comes out. It’s an anthology of science-fiction fairy tales retellings, and I have a short story in it! But because you cannot say “fairy tale” without me hearing “local legend”, mine is absolutely […]

VIRAL AIRWAVES goes out of print … for a tiny bit!

I have an announcement to make! (and, spoilers, it is in the title) For the time being, VIRAL AIRWAVES and THE WHITE RENEGADE are both out of print. It won’t last long–no more than a month–and though it might sound like bad news, I assure you I’m quite happy with it. My publisher, Incandescent Phoenix […]

Cover Reveal: DIFFERENT WORLDS, from Lyssa Chiavari

Sit tight, everyone, because I have something amazing today. And exclusive, which feels like such an honour, because Lyssa is one of my favourite writer in the whole damn world (as an author and as a person). And this cover reveal we’re having? Is for a novella, Different Worlds, which stars my favourite Fourth World […]

Joythief and How to Use Details to Build Character and Story Arcs

They stole what she loved most about herself. Now she’ll do anything to get it back. I have been waiting for this book for as long as its author, Brenda, has been my critique partner, friend, and editor. This is the first writing I’ve ever seen from her, and boy is the result worth your […]
