Masked Possession cover

I have a book coming out. In August. It’s been a while in the making. I wrote a bunch of words and stared at them. Then I signed a contract with an amazing agent. Then I signed a contract with an amazing editor.

I’m currently undergoing a wrestling match with my WordPress template. Although I shall eventually emerge victorious, it’s a little bit in the hot mess stage right now.

Ages ago, I wrote a series of vignettes that aren’t about anything at all – just the stories that pop into your head. but don’t really fit into anything you’re writing. I found them when I was cleaning out the files on my computer.
