Somehow it’s once again NOVEMBER, at the end of a pretty crazy year in which I did a large number of things! I published both parts of a graphic novel duology and two new short stories, I co-produced and edited 24 episodes of a podcast, I attended seventeen conventions and festivals in ten states and two countries, and now here I am at start of perhaps the most intimidating development of them all: AWARD SEASON.

I’m real proud of how this turned out, and if you’re curious, there’s more info about it and links to previews over here.
