New Story on PseudoPod!

I’m so excited for everyone to check out my new story, “When the Slipling Comes to Call,” which is up now at horror fiction podcast, PseudoPod.

Brilliantly narrated by M.K. Hobson and Tina Connolly, “When the Slipling Comes to Call,” is my first story-turned-podcast and finally hearing it on PseudoPod–the song is a real song now!–is an actual daydream come true. Seriously, ask my crit group! Speaking of, a hearty round of virtual high-fives to those wildly talented folks (Asha, Beth, David, Frances, and Shannon), as well as to my stoic first and final readers (Jon and Allison)–thank you, all!

Also, big thanks to Rebekah McKendry and David Ian McKendry, the fantastic hosts of this episode, as well as to producer Chelsea Davis. Finally, super extra special thanks to Artemis Rising 4 guest editor, Karen Bovenmyer, and associate editor Shawna Borman, for making all this possible. Now, go listen!

Coming Soon: Escape Artists’ Artemis Rising 4

Escape Artists revealed the absolutely GORGEOUS cover for Artemis Rising 4 today and gah! did I mention it is gorgeous? As if I wasn’t already ridiculously excited to be part of PseudoPod’s Artemis Rising 2018 line-up, this pushed me into all-the-Kermit-arms-times-infinity territory.

The artist behind this year’s cover is the exceptionally talented Geneva Benton. I’ve swooned over Benton’s work for FIYAH in the past, so I was especially delighted to see her art featured here as part of this event.

If you’re wondering, Artemis Rising is “a special month-long event across the Escape Artists podcasts featuring stories by women and nonbinary authors in genre fiction” and you can check out previous years’ stories via the Escape Artists’ archive.

Escape Artists podcasts are all FREE to enjoy (and they pay their writers professional rates). If you like FREE (and also like writers and artists to get paid), consider supporting Escape Artists by donating here or subscribing via Patreon. While you’re doing smart things with money, be sure to check out Geneva Benton’s shop for prints and tees featuring her incredible art–I recommend these fetching tees with the Artemis Rising 4 illustration. Also, be sure to take a look at Benton’s current Kickstarter for her forthcoming storybook, Allie & Gator.
