Hunter’s Redoubt is now available! …mostly. Print versions can be ordered from retailers. Amazon’s version of the trade paperback went live on Amazon sites today, and that is the version that will be shipped if you order the paperback from Amazon. The audiobook has propagated out to Kobo — but it hasn’t reached other audiobook retailers yet (I checked before I posted). I will try to update links on the book page as it does. I am still in Kansas City, but we’re leaving for Toronto today, so I may be out of internet reach while we travel.

I’m writing to you all from Australia, where I have come on my writing retreat, which used to be an annual thing until Covid. I have an unfortunately tight deadline, and I’m neck deep into Cast in Atonement, which is not yet done. I hope to be finished before I leave Brisbane. And when I say finished, I mean: finished first draft. After which I will revise for submission, and then submit. Shards of Glass is due out at the end of November, so I’m fielding a few questions about that — but my head is fully entangled in the Cast novel, so Shards feels like it was written years ago (it wasn’t). My toe has improved enough it doesn’t bother me much, but according to X‑rays taken a week before I left, … Continue reading
This might be a bit on the long side. That’s the warning. Some of you may remember a couple of months ago I said things were… stressful (possibly worst month ever) on Twitter. If I had been thinking, I would have made certain to separate terrible month from pandemic, which has – for my family – remained a large and consistent weight in the background. We’ve been lucky; we’ve lost no one. We made sure that the less internet-savvy were signed up and vaccinated, and we got vaccinated ourselves; I have no under 12s in my household, and there are none in the household we bubble with when its safe to do so. Mostly, however, what I was thinking was: How do I tell people? And what do I do going forward? So let’s start … Continue reading
So, this is late. And people who are looking at the covers will realize that I have jumped from 17 to 19. Story 18 was an alternate history, written over a quarter of a century ago (yes, I’m old), and I am just not comfortable with it. It was alternate future, not alternate past, and the key character is… someone who is alive now, adult, and not in any way but name associated with the character in the story. Don’t write stories with fictionalized real people T_T. Because I was angsting about this — and about the face that I know nothing about photoshop and cannot therefore change the numbers on the covers of the stories — I may have fallen off the stability wagon a bit and therefore did not get a new story … Continue reading
This is a bit late today. I got up at 7:00 in the morning and came downstairs and did all the proofing and formatting and… woke up. So, in fact, it wasn’t done. Grumpy, I rolled over and got up and came downstairs and proofread and formatted and then… woke up again. Third time apparently is the charm, but it’s unusual to have dreams that mundane. You can’t call them nightmares because it’s awful only once you’ve woken up and realize that all that theoretical work was a dream and it still has to be done. I have no idea why my subconscious is trying to give me ulcers. I mean… once? Okay. But twice? As I’ve been doing, the story in .pdf download is here. The story has … Continue reading
