I know I’ve been away a while, but I wanted to make sure to let people know that I am alive, and I’ll be in Louisville this weekend. It’s the annual get together of writer-type people, otherwise known as Imaginarium! Seriously, if you haven’t been there and can get there, do it. There are so … More It’s Imaginarium time!
Yeah, pretty tables! Look at how official we are! I had a blast in Evansville. I got a chance to tour my university and see all the changes taking place before the con started. All I have to say is WOW. I mean WOW. And geez, where was all this classiness when I … More Evillecon!
Admittedly, I can be a fairly private person. I realize this isn’t always a good thing, but it’s the way I work. Not everything about me is everyone’s business, and I’ve tried to employ the iceberg metaphor in discussions and promotion: for every little bit I show, there’s a lot kept under the surface. Part … More Shall We Gather at the River
I’m really excited to be getting out and about more this year! My first appearance will be March 15 at That Book Place author’s fair in Madison, IN. I’ll be hanging with a lot of my pals from Seventh Star Press and I’ll bring plenty of books to check out! If you’re into the speculative, horror, … More SJ hits the road – upcoming appearances

So most people think I do everything myself. This isn’t true. I have a lot of people I enlist for help. I also have a presence that skulks around me. It’s usually too shy to say anything other than to whisper all the ideas that I should be working on in my ear. After all, … More Mary Sue Cthulhu Conquers Fandom Fest
This is one of my favorite photos from the whole con. Many, many thanks to John Collins for the great conversation and for letting me use this photo. Definitely check his work out at the weird review! As you can see, I’m ready to go! Books are in hand, I’m bright and happy, and the weekend … More The Very Serious Literary Picture Post
My turning points usually hit randomly, but today I feel really good. Maybe it’s because I know good things are on the horizon, maybe I’m just tired of being frustrated, but I’m feeling pretty skippy about life at the moment. So yeah, after all the frustration of NBP closing, Fandom Fest’s issues, and other stuff … More Where Do We Go Now?
So back to the good…there were definitely some moments that made Fandom Fest a blast. Seeing SH Roddey again is always amazing even though that means she has to put up with me in enclosed spaces. Seriously, where’s our sitcom deal? Why don’t we have a reality show by now? Hanging with Charlie Kenmore and … More Focusing on the Good Times
I swear, I’m gettin’ old. It always takes me time to recover from a con, and even more time to put my thoughts together. So Fandom Fest… I will say that I always enjoy meeting readers and doing panels, and this year was great for that. I had some great book-themed discussions and had a … More Fandom Fest – a brief, frustrated recap
