The all-women science fiction and fantasy anthology Athena's Daughters is out. All kinds of stories! My contribution is about old ladies who get powers, called "Commando Bats."

At the beginning of August I will be attending the Winkie Con in San Diego. This should be one of the most fun Oz cons ever! Speaking of Oz, Sky Pyrates Over Oz. is now out.

Another venue: SFWA is hosting readings for local authors around the country. I will be reading with my co-author at Redondo Beach Public Library, North Branch (2000 Artesia Blvd, Redondo Beach, CA) at 2:00 p.m. on August 30th. There will be a couple of other authors there, and should be good eats as well as book talk!

Why I link my books here whenever I can

BVC was formed by a bunch of writers as a cooperative publishing effort. Books offered cross all genres, from science fiction to romance to historical to mainstream. We function as editors, copyeditors, formatters, cover artists, and site maintainers. We offer both reprints (currently in e-form, but we're looking at print options) and new books. 95% of the proceeds go to the authors! That means that the author actually earns most of the money you pay, instead of publishers and big venues like Amazon, B&N, and iTunes.

Here is our latest offering, and this is my bookshelf.
