Thoughts in Passing

When I first started writing, I had no idea where to begin in creating an author bio. Now I do, so I'm sharing what I've learned!

What I've been up to lately, writing-wise:

I'm preparing to teach a class on submitting science fiction and fantasy short stories (the above article on creating an author bio is part of that).

​This Sunday, I'm performing at an acquaintance's book release party, which will feature an extravaganza of art and music and speculative fiction. Should be awesome! If you're in the vicinity of the Twin Cities, you should check it out: http://www.meetup.com/MinnSpec/events/232398314/

And last but not least, my post-apocalyptic steampunk novel A Circus of Brass and Bone is 25% off through the end of July (with the code on Smashwords), and there's a giveaway for it on Goodreads.

Featured Market
Brave Boy World anthology (Pink Narcissus Press) seeks science fiction with a transgender male protagonist, pays $100.

Stories must fall into the category of science fiction (hard or soft), and must feature a transgender male protagonist. Given the nature of speculative fiction, however, we are willing to consider stories that feature non-binary, intersex or genderfluid characters, but for this project, any non-binary character should either identify strongly as male, or the story should deal with themes of what it means to be "masculine" or a "man" in terms of the world setting in which the story takes place.The basics: themed SF, 20,000 - 40,000 words, pays an advance against royalties or a flat rate TBD, no reprints.

No erotica. Furthermore, stories that fetishize trans people will be rejected forthwith with a salty response from one of the editors.

Basics: SF with transman protagonist, open wordcount, reprints okay, pays $100 ($50 for reprints). Guidelines: http://www.pinknarc.com/submissions.html.
