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!

Trans and Genderqueer Anthology Accepting Submissions

Exciting news for all trans and genderqueer poets! Editors TC Tolbert and Tim Peterson (Trace) are collecting submissions for an anthology to be published in 2012 by EOAGH Books. The anthology aims to publish a multiplicity of voices. It is open to a wide range of poets with diverse life experiences and writing backgrounds. So if you are trans- or genderqueer-identified and you thrive on poetic expression, dust off those archives or write the piece that’s been simmering in your brain and send it in. »

Kudos

I’d sent my novel out to several agents, and a couple of them recommended I consult a book doctor. Erin was that book doctor, and eventually I signed with one of those agents, who was impressed by how much I’d been able to improve the manuscript.”
