Brain to Books Cyber Convention and Book Expo

Yes, I should be writing and finishing my current novel (Ghosts of the Sea Moon, the one that used to be a novella). Unfortunately for the book I have two gods, various ghosts, and a pack of sea monsters pouting in my head and not talking to me. So I’m taking a break and penning this post on the Brain to Books Cyber Convention and Book Expo instead.

Read on for my best P.T. Barnum spiel…

Updates and Events

V8A98C0U96

I have some quick writing news and the lowdown about an online event I’m participating in this weekend.

First the news. I have a story appearing in the upcoming issue of The Sirens Call eZine – Issue 28 Terrifying Tales. I’m especially fond of this dark tale, called Arthur’s World, and I hope you check it out later this month when the ezine is published.  I’ll share a link when it drops.

I also have a story still in the running for the upcoming Occult Detective Quarterly magazine. Fingers-crossed for that one, but the competition is tough.

Now for the event.

This weekend, August 12th-14th the wacky fun of the Efestival of Words is taking place! And I am participating again this year.

My events happen on Saturday, August 13th.

At Noon EDT, I’ll be one of the writers in the Build a Story Twitter Challenge panel, where you can watch a crazy multi-author story unfold one tweet-length piece at a time.

And then later that day I’ll be appearing for a 30 minute Q&A session at 4:00 PM EDT.

So please pop over and join the delightful mayhem.

Here’s where you can find the full schedule: The Efestival of Words Schedule of Events

 

 

 

 

#NationalPoetryMonth Day 21: Abstract Infinities

On this Day 21 of National Poetry Month, I venture into the nonsensical…

Numbers

 

Abstract Infinities

 

Two plus two

Never blue

Four to five

Are you alive?

Zero past nine

Fates entwine

Three and three

Time for tea

Eleven times seven

sent to heaven

 

Round and about

the numbers shout

They wiggle and waggle

But do they haggle?

 

One for ten

and back again
