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.

I’ve decided to change the way that I use social media.

Effective immediately, I’m making several simple but important changes to what I post on social media, where I post it, and how I allow others to respond to my posts. I’ve decided to write a detailed explanation of these changes both for the sake of announcing them to my social media contacts and for the sake of providing ideas and inspiration for anyone else who may be considering a similar shift.
