April News and Writerly Updates

The sun is out, it’s a beautiful spring day in Toronto, and I’ve finished the revisions to Markswoman weeks before my deadline! What more could I want?

Oh yes. I want a magic wand so that the second book gets magically written. I have been working on it, just not as productively as I should be. I have my first 60 pages, going to be hitting the middles soon, will certainly get bogged down, and okay, I binge-watched the entire 14 episodes of Firefly. I’d still be watching, if there were any more.

Meanwhile, Clockwork Canada has its Toronto launch on 10 May, and I’m delighted that I will be there, reading from my story Komagata Maru, in the company of awesome friends and fellow writers. Come and join us for a fun literary evening; it’s completely free!

In other news, I got a long-range acceptance for a rather difficult story by Shattered Prism (for their third issue). I also got an acceptance to COMPOSTELA (Tesseracts Twenty) edited by Spider Robinson and James Alan Gardner, which is pretty cool!

For the rest, I’m not really writing any new short fiction these days – I can’t. I have novel brain at the moment, which is only right, seeing as I don’t have a magic wand and the damn thing won’t write itself.

I also just realized that I have written a hero who is my ideal man. If only!

    If you can manifest him in a story, is there any reason why you can’t manifest him in the … ahem … flesh, so to speak? 😀
