Author Copies + Award

First off, my author copies of Drift have arrived! This was a very fun package to open. From the cover to the layout and design, this is one beautifully-made book. I'm grateful that such talented people have put so much care and effort into making this book.

Also, my novelette, "The Temple's Posthole" tied for third place in the annual IGMS Reader's Choice Award. I'm very fond of this story -- it also draws a lot of inspiration from Maya archaeology. I'm thrilled that other people like it, too.

Bittersweet Endings

I'm over at Fiction University today, talking about Writing the Bittersweet Ending.

If you've never been over to the site, I can't recommend it highly enough. Janice Hardy is a master at writing about craft, and gives amazing, illustrative examples of what she's talking about. I learned so much about POV there, and I'm very happy that I got to contribute as a guest to this site.

Water Lilies

Last Monday, my short story "Water Lilies" ran on the Daily Science Fiction e-mail list. It's now available to read, for free, on their website. This is the most solidly YA short fiction I've had published to date, and I'm happy it's here.
