Women Rock Horror, and Not Just in February

So in case you hadn’t noticed, February was Women in Horror Month. We are sorely underrepresented in the genre. We can be so much more than the victim, the scream queen, the set dressing. We are the hero, the badass, the villain. The writer. So in the last month I’ve focused in female authors killing…

It’s a Bird! It’s a Pod! It’s a Pseudo Pod!

Now, almost ten years later, I’ve rediscovered horror as a written medium, and come to the conclusion that I can enjoy stories both in audio and in text form, and still sleep at night. Who knew?

Since this aha-moment, I’ve been making up for lost time, and binging stuff from the backlists of a number of awesome and swoon-worthy podcasts. One of the first ones I discovered, through sister-pods Escape Pod and Podcastle, was Pseudopod.

All Hail the Mighty Loon

I don’t even remember where I learned about Print Run Podcast. Hosts Erik Hane and Laura Zats became the first weekly whisperers in my ears. Though they hardly whisper. I listened to an episode on the SoundCloud app on my phone because I wanted to learn more about writing and publishing. And from the first…

Book Review: The Crucifixion and Resurrection of Malachi the Queer

I just read the most amazing book, in as close to one sitting as I could possibly manage. Couldn’t put it down. Those of you who follow my blog know that Damian is a dear friend of mine. I knew he was talented. I knew, and yet there is a big difference between knowing it,…

King’s Lament, a 50 Word Story

Behind Dagmar, every church bell in the capital began to toll. “Uncle!” She turned and ran down the hill. Her bodyguard caught up, grabbing her wrist. “My Lady, there’s nothing you can do. The king is gone.” She clenched her fist. “One day, I’ll kill the bastard who did this.”     Wow. It’s been…

Book Review: Stein on Writing by Sol Stein

A few weeks ago, I treated myself to some books on the art and craft of writing. Among them was Stein on Writing by Sol Stein. Sol Stein wrote thirteen books, and was publisher and editor-in-chief of Stein and Day publishers for twenty seven years. The book is not what you’d call an easy read.…

The INKreadables, Episode 2: Self-trust

Well, remember a while back when I was so excited I could scream? My friend and poetry mentor Damian Jay Clay and I recorded a podcast. We’d recruited a guest to join us and discuss writerish things. Well, we did it again. It was no less exciting the second time around. We dragged another more-or-less-willing…

Book Review: Bird by Bird, Some Instructions on Writing and Life

For a few weeks now, I’ve been feeling horribly stuck with the novel I’m working on at the moment. It was as if words no longer liked hanging out with me, or even visiting me briefly. I complained about it to my dear friend and fellow INKling, Damian Jay Clay. Because let’s face it. That’s…

Book Review: Damn Fine Story by Chuck Wendig

Every penny is turned over twice and quite often bitten in two before it gets spent on renovations to our home. This means I have a very limited book budget and I spend a lot of time thinking long and hard before deciding to buy one. However, I’ve been killing myself trying to work on…

Mirror Mirror on the Wall

  Who is the awesomest writer of them all? Think you know the answer? Let me give you a hint: there is no such thing. Wow, Jasmine, you sure do give good pep talks. Actually, I usually do. But it’s a fact. Recently, I was talking to one of the Inklings (that’s what we call…
