Summertime is reading time! What are you reading this summer?

My short story, Three Scenarios, has been accepted for the FREE Diverse SFFH group promo on StoryOrigin. This promo is a great opportunity for you to find pro-queer, disability-positive, multicultural, and neurodiverse books and stories for free throughout the month of June.

I’m pleased to announce that I’m working on a new newsletter!

Creative Climate will be a weekly newsletter about climate fiction and other works of climate creativity.

The free version will include a weekly round-up of stories related to creative projects with climate themes: novels, short stories, films, music, art, and so on. It might also include some creative nonfiction and stories about creative solutions to the climate crisis.

The paid version will include new climate-themed short fiction and poetry. This will initially involve a new short story and poem from me each month. If get enough subscribers, I’ll expand this to include guest contributors.

I’ll be launching the newsletter in January of 2021. In the meantime, I want your input!

What do you think of this newsletter idea? Would you be interested in subscribing to the free or paid version? Would you like to see an emphasis on climate fiction, other types of climate creativity, creative climate solutions, or something else entirely?

If you’re interested in the newsletter, let me know what type of content you’d like to see there.


In honor of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, you can get four of my climate fiction ebooks on sale for 99 cents each! They’re usually $3.99, so that’s a 75.2% discount. Pick your favorite or collect all four for just $3.96.

You can find these books at many online booksellers using the links below. Pick the book you want and then pick where you’d like to buy it. The books should all be listed at 99 cents at all of these retailers from November 27 (Black Friday) through November 30 (Cyber Monday).

The eBook edition of my first novel, Change, is now available at many more booksellers!

I recently expanded distribution of Change by publishing it through Draft2Digital. After a brief delay due to my unusual name, the book started publishing at all of Draft2Digital’s distribution channels. It’s still available at Amazon, but now it’s also available in many other places for readers who don’t use Amazon. Please visit the new Universal Book Link (UBL) for Change to see all of the places where it’s currently available.

If you like Change, please remember the three R’s of supporting indie authors: Rate, Review, and Recommend. Rate and review change at your favorite bookseller and on Goodreads. This helps other readers find it and decide if they would like it. Also, recommend it to your friends by telling them what you personally liked about it and sending them the UBL for Change. Personal recommendations from friends or family often carry far more weight than reviews by strangers
