Guys, I have the Scarecrow cover to share, and it is pretty.
Granted, I’m an autumn-lover, so I have a natural bias toward this palette and subject matter. But, pretty.
Are you ready? Continue reading

So Corvidae released yesterday, and today I thought I’d share some bonus content.
Twitter personality Magnus E. Magpie wrote short reviews of each story and poem included in Corvidae. You can find them all collected at editor Rhonda Parrish’s blog, so hop over and give them a browse.
Well, I got up about 25 hours ago, and my body thinks it’s 8 am Danish time, and I just finished a 9-hour flight and a 4-hour car ride with an 8-week old puppy, so this is gonna be a short post.
Here’s what you need to know: Corvidae goes on sale today. You can order it here.
More later on Denmark and that puppy, but right now I gotta crash. /faceplant into bed/
Remember how I said there were some new stories coming? They’re nearly here.
Today, let’s see the cover for Corvidae, an anthology of ravens, crows, magpies, jays, and more. Continue reading

For a story in progress, I was doing some research on infrasound and sea animals and hydrophonics, and I happened across this amazing and terrifying recording.
The March 11, 2011 Tōhoku earthquake off Japan, which produced a devastating tsunami killing perhaps 16,000 people, was recorded by a hydrophonic array in the Aleutian Islands, more than 900 miles away. Despite the great distance, the recorded seismic disturbance is the loudest they’ve ever captured, even louder than the nearby underwater volcanoes.
Listen all the way through to the end, when the sound simply buries the microphone. It’s terrifying. Continue reading
So, I think I’ve mentioned that I have a couple of new short stories in anthologies coming soon. If you’d like to be one of the super-special-awesome people who have it before it releases, you might want to jaunt over to editor Rhonda Parrish’s site and enter to win.
In other news, today I got to talk about cosplay as a Guest Geek on Michael G. Munz’s blog. No free books there, but it’s got pretty pictures, and you can learn about other geeks and his own books.

Remember that sneak peek a few posts back? I now have release dates to share!
Corvidae, an anthology edited by Rhonda Parrish (whom you may remember from Fae), will become available on July 7, 2015. Its sister anthology, Scarecrow, will go on sale August 4.
Though these two collections can stand independently and there’s a limited overlap of authors, these books are intended to function as a pair. My own stories, “Sanctuary” in Corvidae and “Judge and Jury” in Scarecrow, read as two short stories but form one continuous tale.
And here’s the official word: Continue reading
One of my favorite things about Route 66 is discovering relics of a previous age, America’s answer to ancient ruins.
Sally Sparrow: I love old things. They make me feel sad.
Kathy Nightingale: What’s good about sad?
Sally Sparrow: It’s happy for deep people.“Blink,” episode of Doctor Who, written by Steven Moffat
Route 66 is full of old things, and many of them are falling apart from decades of abandonment. Here’s a gallery of some of my favorite findings. Continue reading
