I haven’t had much writing time this year because I’ve been so busy editing (autocorrect just made “so busy” into “donuts”. Mmm, donuts). But hey, I have new things out!
First up, my drabble “The Last Tea Party” is part of Damned Words 29, over at Pen of the Damned. I’ve admired PotD for quite a while now, and I’m honored to get to participate! About the story–be wary of weird things you inherit from Grandma. There’s a reason you’re the last grandchild standing!
Also, my short story “Bleedthrough,” first published in 2015 in Sanitarium Magazine #29 (29 again!), is now an awesome podcast episode from The Wicked Library. Shelley is recently downsized from her workplace, and she seeks to use virtual reality to work out her frustration. When she chooses a famous series of murders to explore, she knows she can’t change history…but she’s about to find out that history can change her.
I’m particularly fond of this very dark story, and I got to do a great follow-up interview with producer Daniel Foytik. Listen here. (Content warning: graphic depictions of murder, animal death, cannibalism.)
