February 26 is International Fairytale Day, so what better day for Craig and I to give you a pile of books and stories by a plethora of authors that cover the spectrum from horror to crime to magic realism to noir to mystery to comedy to love story, and everything else you can think of?
Click the link below to enter: the pile of books includes not only the only 3 hard copies of Serious Moonlight thus far in existence, but also The Sound of Loneliness signed by the author Craig Wallwork, Quintessence of Dust signed by the author Craig Wallwork, Radium Girls signed by the author Amanda Gowin, Gutted: Beautiful Horror signed by (one of) the author(s) Amanda Gowin, as well as the Booked. Anthology!
And, Serious Moonlight, our short story duet, will include brand new bonus flash stories from both of us in these print copies.
Escape. Make a bed of these books and roll around in other worlds, while on break from making this world a better one.
(All proceeds from Serious Moonlight go to International Medical Corps)

Here we go!
Good luck and piles of hope and willpower and strength to fight in this brave new world.
For now I give you David Bowie, and new stories from my Partner in Crime and I, under a title dedicated to the man himself. Any and all meager proceeds go to International Medical Corps.
Promises in the New Year, to myself and all of you:
1. Write more, and harder.
2. Stay loud, without succumbing to bitterness or pessimism.
3. Keep my son aware of the kindness in him, no matter how the fashion of kindness may change.
4. Point out Nice Times to myself as they happen, as advised by KV’s uncle.
5. Absorb lots of Vitamin D.
6. Read, read, read.
7. Listen, listen, listen.
May your heart be full and kind and strong. See you at the Women’s March!

Summer 2016 marks 5 years of Menacing Hedge, and I’m happier than happy to be a part of this family. The Summer Edition is full of good stuff – check it out, while we keep reading for Fall. ❤

Happy first day of summer! Happy full moon!
All of the things. ‘Gutted: Beautiful Horror‘ hit #1 in Hot New Releases and #2 in Horror Anthologies on its first day of pre-sale. Tomorrow night I guest on a Noir on the Air episode of ‘Dames in the Dark‘ at 9pm. We’ve got the stories selected for the Summer edition of Menacing Hedge, and go boldly into reading for Fall. Pantheon Magazine’s ‘Hestia’ issue My son has one more week of baseball. My nephew is nearly here. There’s only one more episode of ‘Game of Thrones.’
‘Daddy’s Dyin’ Who’s Got the Will?’ at the Portsmouth Little Theatre wrapped up in a sea of love, tears and Fireball. My husband got a motorcycle. We just got back from vacation, where I met Chewbacca – who is just as sweet in person as he is in the movies! Also, not to jinx her because the day is not done (and on this, the longest day of the year, I may be tempting fate), my favorite little red hen Lauren (Bacall) has successfully navigated back and forth to the neighbors’ hen house without an automobile collision.
Howl at the moon, my lovelies. Throw away your shoes. Jump in deep, dark water. Summer is upon us!
