Cover Reveal: The Dwelling of Ekhidna, by Lauren Jankowski

I don’t talk about Lauren nearly as much as I should. In all the baby steps I took reaching out to the ace community and getting involved with representation, Lauren Jankowski and the Asexual Artist blogs was one of the most fundamental and important one. Heck, that very first interview (she has over 500 ace artists […]

Asexuality and Death and Other Associations

I’m used to asexual and aromantic characters being the villains. Pegging down a lack of attraction or love as inhuman and evil is an old tradition still well alive in stories, especially SFF. We have for a long time painted villains as people unable to comprehend love and celebrated romance as a staple of humanity, […]

Sex-centric Narratives, Microaggressions, and the Problems of Poison Kiss

Earlier today I finally posted my review of Poison Kiss. You can find it here, but to get you in the beat, here’s the start: I came into this book ready to LOVE it. And gosh did it start well! At 25-30%, I was in love with just about everyone, rolling in the happiness of what had […]

Five Asexual Protagonists by Actual Ace Writers

Let’s have a party. Today Tor reposted their April list of asexual protagonists, which not only doesn’t recommend books by ace authors, but actually sets forth pretty shitty rep. And to add insult to injury, they paraphrase Lauren Jankowski, an indie aro-ace artist that is very vocal and supportive of the community and its self-publishers […]

Le carré rouge

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.  Le […]

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 […]

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 […]

Annoucing the Solarpunk Dragon Anthology Official Line-Up!

Okay everyone, I hope you’re excited! Because I am. Oh, I sure am. Over the last two months, Brenda and I have received a slew of absolutely wonderful submissions for our anthology–over 50 stories, most of which were absolutely riveting. So much that our anthology is about double the size of what we expected! It’s […]

Solarpunk Dragon Anthology !!!

Let me tell you about my latest, most exciting project. Because right now, it’s hard for me not to run everywhere around and squeal. This summer, I will be editing an absolutely wonderful anthology centered about solarpunk dragons. I just finished a short story about this, and my writer, friend, and editor Brenda and me […]
