Even as a writer, I don’t have anything interesting to report on a regular basis, so why cram your inbox with spammy jibber-jabber? How about instead of writing a boring newsletter, I publish a new short story online every three months? Follow here, and I’ll send you a direct link.
Speculative Fiction that Features
We demand stronger women in speculative fiction, because… Well, why should guys get to have ALL the fun? We need MORE brilliant heroines! Give us a brutal villainess too! Bring on the talented ladies who aren't afraid to let their lights shine. Let's celebrate their brains, beauty, AND brawn. Hells to the YEAH!
You just can’t escape science. Technology is all around us, and every so often a device goes rogue. UH-OH! Maybe it’s just a bug—a simple glitch, harmless error, or a pesky virus. But sometimes… Well sometimes, the malfunction is part of a diabolical PLOT. Mix EVIL intent with power, and you’ve got a recipe for disaster.
What's more thrilling than unstoppable monsters, cults of personality, and heartless psychopaths? We NEED villains that we love to hate. Straw men belong in a corn field not a great suspense novel. A badass heroine only shines with a truly evil villain to defeat. And let's not forget that bad guys are often bad girls. Bring the pain!
