Nine-Tail Fox by Camille Picott

In 2011 I had the pleasure of working once again with Camille Picott, author of Raggedy Chan and the recently released Nine-Tail Fox. Both middle-grade children’s books, released through Picott’s Pixiu Press, belong to the Chinese Heritage Tale Series she is creating to make more ethnically diverse speculative fiction available for young people. »

Earth Cell by Charles Brass

Congratulations to Charles Brass, whose latest science fiction novel, Earth Cell, is now available in the Kindle Store and through ClearView Press. Brass and I worked on this manuscript in September of 2011. A great choice for anyone who enjoys reading about sorcery, interplanetary travel, telepathic weapons, and political conflict on an intergalactic scale. Bravo, Charles!

Kudos

Erin edited a two hundred-page memoir for me and returned it with embedded commentary as well as the expected editing. She has an ear for voice in a piece and is able to point out places the voice changes.”
