2019 Retrospective

2019 Retrospective

In 2019 my literary journey has reached some new turns in the road. Although longer works are still in progress (plotting underway, let the interweaving begin), I’ve met some satisfying milestones. Selling short fiction to magazines has been one of those things that felt like a required stamp on my Writer CardTM. Semi-pro so far; hey, progress! And many thanks to those editors who believed in my works! With great joy, my novel Havesskadi has received the Rainbow Award for Best Asexual Debut Book. Celebrations are in order, with cake of the black-grey-white-purple variety (get it?).

That said, here are my works of 2019. This list serves as an award eligibility post, too!

  • Peripheric Synthesized (2019) Flash (900 words): Science Fiction, Space, Artificial Intelligence, Fictional Non-fiction, Time Travel. Sci Phi Journal, Issue 3/2019 | Online here | Semi-pro.

In 2020 new releases await impatiently, just around the corner. In 2021, it will be an immense honor to be part of the excellent lineup for the Trans-Galactic Bike Ride: Feminist Bicycle Science Fiction Stories of Transgender and Nonbinary Adventurers.

Stay tuned, and remember: keep your hands, arms, tentacles and antennae inside the train at all times!
