Lately

My novel, A Coven in Essex County, completed its print run as a serialized book. It’s available to read on Visitant, with links to the chapters in an organized list on my blog here: A Coven In Essex County

Meanwhile, I’ve launched an org! I’m collecting data and oral history from tabletop gamers who identify as women, non binary, gender non conforming, and bigendered, plus anyone else who answers the survey and poll questions! Visit PanopLit to contribute your own story, add to that sweet data, or just read about Gay Futures!

I am also on the second draft of my second novel and will be releasing Coven in a new format (print and ebook!) with extended content and a footnoted version of the story it’s a sequel to- H.P. Lovecraft’s The Shadow Over Innsmouth.

Thank you for following, and stay tuned!

Announcement

It’s old news at this point, but on June 21st, the emerging literary website Visitant. However, I failed to post it on my author blog, so here it is: The official announcement!

Visitant will be publishing my novel, “A Coven in Essex County”, in serialized monthly installments. You can read the first one here: https://visitantlit.com/2016/06/21/a-coven-in-essex-county-part-1/

I completed this novel last year, and the bulk was written while I was working in a museum in the Rocky Mountains. It’s set in the fictional town of Innsmouth, Massachusetts invented by H.P. Lovecraft. The story’s intro has a pretty good overview, so I won’t rehash that, but I am so excited to share these women’s stories.

As each installment is posted, I will also be sharing a little bit about the research that went into the book, or about the personal experiences that inspired each chapter/woman. Be assured that I have been all of these women, as cheesy as that sounds. The circumstances are often far outside my own (for instance, I have never been married, much less against my will), but their reactions to them, their personalities, often have much in common with myself.

Please, enjoy!
