2019 isn’t over yet
But I have had such a great year thus far, and as I know many people begin their awards reading this time of year, I’m going in early
The work I’m highlighting for your awards consideration
The work that has been closest to my hear this year is the short story “Every Song Must End” from the March Uncanny issue. You can find it online here. And the interview with Caroline M. Yoachim here.
The description: When Florence and Asher decided to pursue nonmonogamy, Florence didn’t expect to fall so quickly for her new partner Henry. Polyamory proves a source of renewal for Florence, until Henry’s wife gets a job that forces the two to move to Mars.
I’m currently working on a novel based on this short and so am still immersed in these characters and am looking forward to having another chance to highlight it in this post!
Look, I feel as weird about highlighting stuff for awards consideration as the next person!
But I do try to live my life with the confidence of a cat who thinks she belongs in the fresh hand towel basket
In further reading news, my story “In the City of Martyrs” was reprinted in audio form on LeVar Burton’s podcast LeVar Burton Reads! Listen to it here.
I also had a hella successful Art & Words Show, went on a Wisconsin retreat, attended LaunchPad, finished a hefty revision of a novel, and went to Amsterdam (which wasn’t writing related but WAS my first long plane ride since getting over my fear of flying and was very rad indeed!).
