      1 Comment on Postponing the book launch for Stranger Skies

My book launch for Stranger Skies is supposed to be this Sunday, the 24th of November, at the Cottage Bistro in Vancouver. I’m having to postpone it. There were several delays in editing and formatting, which has led to printing delays. I won’t have books ready in time unless there’s an act of the gods. The good kind of act…. Read more »

Facebook hiatus, day bluh-blur-bluh

      2 Comments on Facebook hiatus, day bluh-blur-bluh

A short way of saying “I don’t actually know how long it’s been; the days have blended together into one large party.” I have come to loathe Facebook. It’s a black hole of negativity and every time I go on there, I feel miserable. So I decided to take a hiatus and I feel much better! I still feel like… Read more »

In which I yell into a microphone and shake like a leaf.

      Comments Off on In which I yell into a microphone and shake like a leaf.

This is me at the VanSlam on Monday night. I haven’t watched the video and probably won’t. I have issues with watching myself on video and am not in the right headspace to do so today or maybe ever. But, you know, if you wanted to see me perform “Blood Candle”…there you go. Now, back to work, from which I… Read more »

A good day for pluviophiles

      Comments Off on A good day for pluviophiles

Well, actually, even I find this weather kind of frightening. It is monsooning outside right now. As in, I’m pretty sure if I walked out of my building I’d drown. Anyway, this means that WORD Vancouver is being moved indoors — so you can still come see us tomorrow but we’ll likely be inside. Oh, right — we’ll be at… Read more »

Hey, you know what’s in 10 days? Vancouver Island Pagan Pride Day! And Kat & Wolff will be there, vending.

What will you cross off your bucket list this year?

Everyone should have a bucket list, I think — that list of essential things one must do in one’s lifetime. It can be specific — related to one area of your life, like writing — or it can be about everything. And I think it should be never ending. Hopefully life is interesting enough that once you cross things off… Read more »

The Next Big Thing Author Blog Hop

      Comments Off on The Next Big Thing Author Blog Hop

KariAnn Ramadorai tagged me for this blog hop, and I figured it’d be a fun thing to do. She also said some very nice things about me in her blog post, which made me blush. Yes, I’m blushing. Shush. And it’s totally still Sunday. Because I haven’t slept yet. That’s how it works because shut up. What is the working… Read more »

      Comments Off on Blog Tour: Gabriel Fitzpatrick’s “These Days” Post

Today I’m hosting Gabriel Fitzpatrick, one of the Literary+ writers, on a blog tour for his new book Rmnce! These Days ‘These days’ was the first expression which ever came to turn my stomach.
