Blatant Self Promotion

The winners of Kelley Armstrong’s short story contest have been posted. I didn’t win, but I’m glad I entered, because she’s promised feedback to all who did.

For the record, I’m not disappointed – it was a worthwhile exercise. I’m also not surprised. The winning entries are all much more overtly otherworldly (I’m not sure, but I think all three are also about vampires – I read them very quickly.)

The title of this post aside, I’m pretty shy about sharing my work. I’m trying to get over that, but it’s difficult. In any case, MY story can be found at, and this is an official request that anyone reading THIS also head over and read THAT (unless you’re among the people who read it when I emailed it out.) Comments are encouraged. Feedback is better than chocolate. (No, really.)

Summer Burn

It’s that time again: the folks at FunJunkie are hosting Summer Burn 2005, in which people from around the world burn two copies of their favorite summer playlist, and send them off to the random people the host provides.

It’s a great way to get new music, and it’s sort of fun.
