Wilde Stories 2012: The Year’s Best Gay Speculative Fiction (Lethe Press) is out now! It collects my short story, “Filling Up the Void,” and is my first appearance in an actual, honest-to-god paper and ink book.
If you start hard-boiling eggs, then get caught up writing, the water will eventually boil away and the eggs will pop like popcorn kernels. And you’ll probably ruin a pan. And writers shouldn’t try to multitask.
Welcome to my home away from home, housed on a web server in my utility room.
I’m a new writer, counting down the days to the publication of my first novel, Bad Glass (Del Rey, 9/25/12). It won a contest in 2011, beating out 700 other novels, and Del Rey liked it enough to sign me on as one of their authors. Bad Glass is a three-year labor of love, a postmodern-ish science fiction/fantasy/horror story. And if you like any of those things you should probably give it a read.
I’ve also sold a couple of short stories. You can check those out via my Bibliography page.
At the moment this site is pretty empty. Just this welcome note, a bibliography, a brief bio, and a deleted scene from my novel. I’m hoping it grows as I figure out self-promotion and hype-creation. I’ll try not to post too many inanities — mostly just upcoming publications, giveaways, and interviews. And, come September, I’m sure there’ll be a lot of those.
