Sanitarium, Beyond Steampunk, And The 2018 Ottawa Comiccon

Hey everybody!

So I realize there’s been some radio silence on my end in the last few months, but that’s only because there’s been a lot going on. Although I wish I had the time to make an individual post for every update, unfortunately I have to group a few really cool things into one post.

As some of you may know, I recently purchased Sanitarium Magazine with Ian Sputnik, Brooke Warra, and Michael Brueggeman. We’re doing some really cool things with it—like expanding its offerings and changing its look—and I’m really excited for you all to see what kind of changes and updates we make to this publication. Unfortunately I can’t talk too much about what we’re doing, but I promise it’s going to be good. It’s beloved by so many indie horror authors, and gave so many people (like me!) their start in horror, so I really hope we can do it justice.

I was also published in a new anthology! It’s called Beyond Steampunk and features my short story “Highway 16,” which was previously published in 2016. If you get a kick out of supporting local authors—or if you just enjoy reading alternative histories—then be sure to pick up a copy.

Lastly, if you’re not doing anything this May, and happen to be in the Ottawa area, why not come down to the 2018 Ottawa Comiccon? I’ll be giving a workshop on body diversity, and how to make media more inclusive for everyone. The schedule for the convention hasn’t been released yet, but I promise to update the Courses, Workshops, and Panels page once I get all the details.   

And that should be all the updates.

At least for now.

Happy writing!

Read-Only: A Collection of Digital Horror

I’m happy to announce that my first coauthored short horror collection with M. Regan entitled Read-Only: A Collection of Digital Horror is finally out!

The book features fourteen never before seen short stories that reveal the insidious side of high-tech toys. This collection can’t be unread, and once you learn the truth about what’s lurking behind your mobile screens, camera lenses, and newsfeeds, you can never forget.

Be sure to pick up a copy today, which you can find over here at the WMP website.

The Women In Horror Annual

Women In Horror Annual

If you haven’t heard the news, which is very possible given how slow I am at announcing things, I’m happy to say that a story of mine is going to be featured in an upcoming anthology called The Women In Horror Annual. The anthology is a collection of short horror, and nonfiction about horror, exclusively written by women who work in the genre. The project is being spearheaded by Rachel Katz and Christine Makepeace, and I couldn’t be happier to be a part of it. Continue reading “The Women In Horror Annual”

A Long Overdue Update (Or Two)

So it’s been well over a month since my last post to this website… which is horrible. But, on the plus side, I’m posting something now. So that’s good, right? Maybe? We’ll come back to that later.

It’s been a crazy couple of months and I’m beyond excited to announce that I have a few really exciting projects coming out next year. I’ll be appearing in a few anthologies, the names of which I’m unable to announce just yet, and I’ll also be on an upcoming episode of Pseudopod (which, in case you’re not familiar with it, is an incredible horror podcast). I’m also thrilled to announce that I’ll be co-editing an anthology with both the talented Kris Holt and Mark Nixon, the creator of Shadows At The Door, which is slated to come out later next year. If you’re not familiar with his phenomenal website then you definitely need to go check it out this second. Seriously. Continue reading “A Long Overdue Update (Or Two)”
