Projects and Updates!

Hello everyone! After Circuits & Slippers came out in September last year, I took a bit of a break, just several months to de-stress. I kept submitting pieces and working on my writing, but no huge projects or anything demanding. It was really nice… but of course, I am still me and I can’t be away from projects for long. (Must make things!!!! Must!!!)

So of course, I’ve been working on things since New Years, and now it’s time to announce them!

Coming April 2017

Announcing… Polycule, a blog series/podcast revolving around the true story of a polyamorous, queer person dating and doing life.

Wait, what?

I am a polyamorous, demi-bisexual, bigender person living in the midwest USA. Nonbinary, non-monogamous, and not that into sex. Married, has a boyfriend, dates other people, likes kissing. Etc. Oh, also struggles with anxiety, depression, and recovering from trauma/abuse.

I started online dating (again) back in October 2016, and at least 20 people on twitter asked me to write more about my experiences than the tidbits I was sharing in 140 characters. So… I decided to go for it.

Today I’m happy to announce a guest post series I will be doing here on this blog, called Making it Work. I’ll be speaking with writers and other creative types and asking them to share how their creative process works in the middle of all of life’s struggles. I’m specifically hoping to highlight the ways people with mental and physical health issues handle their creative work.

Interview with Kate Ledbetter: Author of Anagnorisis

Today I get to share with you an interview with Kate Ledbetter, author of Anagnorisis, an awesome horror novella I’ve helped edit and produce. It’s been a long time coming, but the book is finally out on Amazon! I hope you all will check it out, and get to know Kate and her work a little below.

Anagnorisis CoverSo, as a horror author I’m sure you get asked this a lot, but… Do you watch a lot of horror movies? What are some of your favorite horror books and movies?

I watch horror constantly. Aside from stand up comedy and some truly terrible reality tv (think Ghost Adventures and Finding Bigfoot less than Real Housewives) it’s almost all I watch anymore. That said, I’ve found that when you insist on seeing a glut of a certain genre, you’re bound to find more marginal and frankly bad movies than amazing ones. Especially when you’re also a part of that genre and are a bit more critical than most viewers.

Many popular horror movies, I just don’t find enjoyable. In particular, I’m really not fond of movies or books that rely on mental illness or someone else’s culture to provide the scary elements of the movie. If what’s supposed to be scary is that someone the audience thought was a reliable narrator was in fact suffering from a mental illness, to me that’s a bad movie and lazy writing. I’m also not into horror that depends too heavily on gore for the sake of gore rather than building suspense with a solid plot and compelling details.

I am happy to be the editor/producer/agent/all-around-cheerleader for one of my┬ábest friends’ debut horror novella. It’s creepy, it’s gross, and it’s powerful. If you like sentient blood, revenge stories, or thoughtful horror that takes on real-life issues, you will adore this book. (Also, there is subplot about a lesbian teen working up the courage to come out, if that’s of interest to you.)

We are currently looking for ARC reviewers, and people interested in interviews, guest blogs, or doing a cover reveal for the book. If any of that sounds like you, please fill out this form on google docs. (And thank you!!)

Anagnorisis by Kate Ledbetter comes out April 6th, 2016, and will be available on Amazon.

Remember that project I kept hinting about… a collaborative, scary story I was doing? Well, it’s time to announce it!

Logo-851x315

Murder-You-Vote is the story of six strangers at a ski-lodge for a Valentine’s Day singles retreat. But their first night, a blizzard snows them in.

Oh, and… someone dies.

Things turn from bad to worse as someone – or something – starts killing them off one by one.

And you get to vote for who goes next.
