Sale: "The Unofficial Guide to Travelling with Kin", Betwixt Magazine

I'm pleased to announce I've sold my second story to Betwixt Magazine.

"The Unofficial Guide to Travelling with Kin", a road trip story where the hitchhikers are more than meets the eye, will appear in the January 2015 issue of Betwixt Magazine.

Betwixt published "The Dragon in the Wardrobe" earlier this year.

My Clarion Class, Doing Things

My classmates from Clarion are a really interesting bunch, so I'm going to blather about them for a bit.

I can't wait to find out where all their careers are going, there is some truly prodigious talent amongst them all. Already four of them have been tapped to appear in Tor's short fiction pages next year (one of my bucket list places to be published), so I'm really excited for you to read some of their stories which were written at the workshop.

Here's Nino Cipri's online home, and a story they recently had published in Betwixt, "The Literal Forest". O hai, Betwixt homey! *fist bump*

Martin Cahill has been blogging about the Clarion experience, and is up to Week Four now. Also, have a read of his horror story "It Was Never The Fire" over at Nightmare magazine.

Vida Cruz has also blogged about Clarion, and you'll find here writerly, muse-filled home right here. She has lots of interesting things to say about international SFF.

Kayla Whaley has a run down of her Clarion experience (Much Karaoke. So Squee), and she was also recently interviewed about disability and diversity in YA.

Sarena Ulibarri has been busy since Clarion and has a few stories out or coming out soon. Her online home is here. Some stories of hers include "Half Life" at KYSO Flash, "It Pours" at The CafĂ© Irreal, and "The Bolt Tightener" at Lightspeed.

Haralambi Markov can be found in a variety of anthologies (and Tor!). Here is his online home, where he blogs reviews, musings, and things of writerly fascination, and try a taster of his weird style with "The Fungi That Talk Softly" from Electric Velocipede.

Marian Womack blogs here, with a keen interest in Spanish language SFF. Can't wait for more of her work to be read the world over!

Ryan Campbell has a book out called "God of Clay", and it's available here from Sofa Wolf Press.

A couple of classmates currently curating on tumblr, including their writerly stylings, are Ellie Rhymer and Kristen Roupenian.

That's 10 of the 17 people I'll shout to the skies about forever and a day, because a few of them have yet to create an online presence for their writing work, but I'll keep you up to date with their work as it happens.

Just remember, Clarion 2014: The Future of Speculative Fiction. Potential Hugo Award Winners. You heard it here.
