I have a couple writerly bits and pieces to pass on, so here we go.
Fireside Magazine, which this month is featuring my story "To Catch a Fallen Star," is running a year-end subscription drive. There are prizes, and of course you get great stories by amazing writers like Ken Liu and Chuck Wendig. The drive runs through Dec. 15. You can read more about it here.
And Raygun Chronicles is live a couple of days early on Amazon in hardback, with trade paperback and ebook to follow soon. You can also order through Barnes and Noble, and there's a Goodreads giveaway. (BTW, Goodreads readers are giving the collection a five-star rating.) If you're thinking about buying this collection because you love space opera or you're looking for a holiday gift for someone who does, now is the time to put in your order. Buying in the first week will help push the anthology's rating higher and give it a more long-term profile on Amazon and other sites.
And now I'm off to the coffee shop to plot out my next story. The end-of-month deadline for Writers of the Future will be here before we know it, and I haven't written a word yet for that contest. Time to get going on it.
