Hello! I am still here. As you may have guessed from, er, the previous post, my health has not been the best, but I am recovering and now return with some lovely news tidbits!

First, I have a new publication! Juli is live in the sixth issue of Through the Gate, a small but exquisitely curated poetry zine full of sharply elegant work. Juli is one of my oldest poems, and I struggled with thinking I had no place to submit it to — so I’m very glad that my little piece has found a home in TtG’s issue, and in such company! I share the every-shifting Table of Contents with writers I very much admire, such as luminaries Bogi Takács, Lisa M. Bradley, and Sonya Taaffe.

Second! I am excited to announce (belatedly) that I am illustrating An Alphabet of Embers, an anthology of unclassifiables edited by Rose Lemberg. I have read the draft manuscript and all the stories there are amazing, each and every one, and I’m working hard to make sure that my illustrations can in some small way frame all that breathtaking prose!

Another announcement — this one not too late — I am the cover artist for the first anthology for GlitterShip, an LGBTQ SFF podcast! I’m so excited about this project, as I care very deeply about having lots of awesomeness and queer representation in SFF. They’re running a Kickstarter as well, so please consider supporting that if you are so moved!

Lastly, I’m thinking about merging my art and writing blogs — they’re all mixed together in my brain, after all, and it’s difficult for me to have finished one project and then have the choice-paralysis of figuring out which blog to post it on, etc etc. Hah. We’ll see, I suppose; in the meantime, if you have any thoughts about that, I’d love to hear them.
