Will Write 2 Feed Others – This thing I do, v. 2014

Moving and deadlines and Life have gotten a nasty delay in my plans, but yes, #Willwrite2feedothers is happening. But what, some of you who weren’t around or paying attention last year, are asking, is #Willwrite2feedothers? It’s this. I’m careful about where I give my charity money. I do my research, I look at the percentage […]

State of the Meerkat: Waiting, and Revising

Two weeks before the move, and I’m living a weird kind of half-life.  Ideally, this makes me focus more on the work.  Ideally. Lunch with my agent this week, to discuss projects pending, and new.  Which means I really need to get the existing stuff off my desk and onto someone else’s (editor and/or formatters). […]

Worldbuilders 2014

So we’re a little bit hectic here at Ch. Felidae, getting ready to shift across the continent for a bit, and so we missed the first week of Worldbuilders’ fundraiser.  But I’ve got your link here, never fear! But wait, wait, some of you don’t know about Worldbuilders? Every year, a bunch of us writer- […]

Updatery, various and sundry

My only comments about the election are that with democracy, sometimes we get the government other people deserved.  Also, that not giving up/not losing faith is the best fuck you we can give to those who want to haul us back to the 1950′s (or 1850′s). I’m off to World Fantasy today. Over the weekend, Subtenant will be cat-minding, […]

Revisionary Update

SILVER ON THE ROAD is now, officially, the longest book I’ve ever written, and I still have another 75 pages to revise (exactly where Mine Editor sayeth “give us more detail!”) So. Yeah.   (for those wondering, that means we’re past the 126,000 word mark. Certain Writers may call that a novella, but for me, […]

So, yeah. This is happening.

Where “this” is a leave of absence from NYC. In December, I’m packing up self, cats, and a limited (!) number of books, and hauling cross-country to Seattle, where I will take up residence for a year (or two). No, I’m not abandoning NYC. I still own my apartment – a friend is subletting, a […]

Various and Sundry has to unpack the cat

Writerly Stuff: Revisions on many things continue.   I am very boring on social media during revisions, unless you’re privy to the maniacal cackling and frustrated sobbing…. For those of you following the progress of SILVER ON THE ROAD, I just sent the following character references off to our art director: Kasun Izzy I have […]

A hint! A hint! My kickstarter for a hint!

And lo, we’ve hit 90% funded for TEMPORALLY OUT OF ORDER, an anthology featuring new stories from David B. Coe, Faith Hunter, Stephen Leigh, Gini Koch, Seanan McGuire, Laura Resnick, and moi – and some Others To Be Named Later! So that means it’s time to hint at what my story’s going to be about…. hint #1: […]

Hello, Monday!

I am home from RoberCon, no thanks to Rt. 87, which turned into a parking lot pretty much the entire way from Rt 17 to NYC, for no reason we could tell. It was, ducking the tl;dr, an excellent convention, well-attended (they filled their available space without becoming TOO crowded), well-paneled (the conversations were lively and […]
