If Wishes Were Spaceships: Tech Between the Lines

If Wishes Were Spaceships looks like a fairly simple science fiction story, but for those readers who want something to think about, there’s a subtext in the book about our relationship with technology.

I sometimes feel like I’m out of step with the world because the trend in books these days tends toward big sprawling stories, with potentially disastrous galactic consequences. Stories that span vast amounts of space and time. Stories packed with physical action, often violent action, on every page. War stories, stories of ordinary people caught […]

The Last Word? (We can only hope.)

This popped up in my Facebook feed, an essay from the NPR Monkey See blog: “No More Ebooks Vs Print Book Arguments, OK?.

The new year is off to a good start! 😀 Bookish: My ebooks are now available from more Amazon/Kindle stores (Italy and Spain being the newest additions) and Kobo has finally stocked The Malice Plant over a year after it was released!

Miasma

Lisa Lightner fled social work for the relative quiet of a bookstore. A safe haven from violence. But the publication of a horror novel which unleashes an Evil on the world threatens not only her peace of mind, but society itself.
