More Birdverse reviews

A.C. Wise highlights my work and “Grandmother-nai-Leylit’s Cloth of Winds” in particular as a part of her Non-Binary Authors to Read feature: It is a story rich in imagery and sensory detail. It is a story about magic – who is allowed to use it, and what kind are they allowed to use. It is

Patreon updates!

I’ve switched my Patreon to monthly payments. The previous per-creation arrangement was not really working for me, as I ended up constantly worrying whether new pieces were worth charging for, and in the end, nothing felt quite worthy of posting for pay.

“The Shapes of Us, Translucent to your Eye”

When the Unlikely Academia call came out, I wasn’t sure I’d be able to write anything at all. I’m not very good at writing for specific calls. But then I read Amal El-Mohtar’s story Pockets, and I sat down and this story came out of me. “The Shapes of us, Translucent to your Eye” is

I love this so much. If you donate $10 or

Geometries of Belonging

My novelette “Geometries of Belonging” is out today in the BCS anniversary double issue. Content notes: the story features queer, trans, and autistic people, often in combinations. It does have D/s themes. It is decidedly NOT a queer, trans, or autism tragedy. TWs for depression, familial abuse, ableism, and misgenderings. When I started writing, those

It’s everything at once day

October is here, and new things with it! 1) Queers Destroy Horror special issue of Nightmare Magazine, edited by Wendy Wagner, is out! Unlike other Queers Destroy issues, this one includes a poetry section. That’s terrific – dark poetry has a long tradition, and I am glad to see it honored here. The poetry selection
