Posted by on Sep 30, 2022 in anthology:poem, anthology:story, Blog, podcast | 0 comments

Well, hi. There hasn’t been anything but scheduled-ahead Bready or Not posts over the past while because I have been in DEADLINE LAND. Deadline Land is a nightmarish place where you don’t leave the house except to acquire groceries and get your kid to therapy, and you write and write and write and panic and write some more AND THEN you get copyedits for another book and you then quietly scream.

I’m still in Deadline Land but the landscape has changed enough to grant me some catch-up time to update my bibliography and also compile those changes in this very post. Along with the new short stories, poems, and podcast linked below, I can also say that my book A Thousand Recipes for Revenge is now scheduled for release on June 13, 2023. I hope to have a cover to share soon!

New publications to start off May

Posted by on May 8, 2020 in anthology:poem, anthology:story, Blog, podcast | Comments Off on New publications to start off May

The publishing industry slogs onward, rejecting works with as much fervor as ever… with the occasional acceptance offered for variety. Plenty of things are still being published, too. Here is my latest:

Podcast:
“Clouds Gleam Across Her Eyes” (reprint) was read by Tina Connolly at Toasted Cake as part of the Run of Hope

Poetry
“The Girl Who Survived” in Mirror Dance
– “he scores” co-written with Rhonda Parrish in Star*Line 43.2
– watch me awkwardly read my previously-published “Wayfaring King” in Cuttlefish Poetry Reading, Episode 2 over on YouTube

New Poem in Uncanny Magazine

Posted by on May 5, 2016 in anthology:poem, Blog, podcast | Comments Off on New Poem in Uncanny Magazine

Issue10_MayJune16_coverFINAL_small_reallyUncanny Magazine just published a poem of mine that is near and dear to my heart. “Deeper Than Pie” is about a granddaughter’s love for her grandmother… and pie. My own grandma is in her 90s, and I rejoice in every moment I get to spend with her on trips back home. I cannot take that time for granted. I channeled a lot of that emotion into “Deeper Than Pie.”

My poem wasn’t simply published online, either. It’s also included in Episode 10a of the Uncanny Podcast, sandwiched between an extraordinary story by Seanan McGuire and an interview with Seanan. (Oddly enough, I was featured in a Far-Fetched Fables Podcast with Seanan a while back, too! I greatly admire her work, so this trend leaves me rather awed.)
