I am pleased to announce that my short story O-Taga-San will be available from Drollerie Press from their Flyleaf imprint. It will be published on its own, and will cost you…pennies.

The story goes like this: I submitted a story at request for the Hellebore and Rue anthology, and while the editors liked O-Taga-San, they felt it wasn’t a good fit for the anthology.

Later, one of the editors asked me if she could still have it. I had been sending it around, and there had been some solid nibbles, but no takers. It came home again, and I sent it to JoSelle Vanderhooft and Catherine Lundoff. Both of these women are fine writers, and I’m pleased to be working with them as my editors.

Incidentally, if you know Lisa Morton, she’s in Hellebore and Rue. The story she’s published is that awesome hair story she workshopped at VP.

For those of you who were at Readercon, this is the story that I read excerpts from there.

So. Now I’ve written about lesbian Japanese adolescent shape changers. My breadth is surprising.

Ooo. Grammar class in two minutes. Gotta fly.

  1. Thanks for the shout-out – and I’m so glad to hear that O-Taga-San has found a home – I liked what I heard of it at Readercon 🙂
