These Purple States of America

  Here, America. Have some context. This is more what you look like. Not that sea of red with little blue islands I’ve seen making the rounds. Not a checkered map of red and blue states. There is not a state in this country that isn’t purple. I’ve spent the…

A Q&A with Emmie and Sara: What Comes After Agent?

This week has been an indubitably difficult one. I am a queer, trans person with a disability and mental illnesses. And I have a book coming out next week, which feels all too apropos of this moment in history. I am fiercely proud of it. It’s a book about hope….

When It Crumbles, What Connects Us?

I’ve spent a lot of this year thinking about fascism. (I even wrote a novel about what happens when it takes power.)   Not just on the immediate scale (which I have, because duh), but because it’s my training. I completed enough credits to have a double major in History…

Writing, AKA Fingerpainting With Blood

Happy Friday! Or, if you’re in the service industry or some other non M-F deviljob, I wish you a swift passing of time until your next day of rest and offer you the Fistbump of Solidarity.   I’ve been thinking a lot lately about that Hemingway quote “Writing is easy,…

Autumnal Con-fluence: Where To Find An Emmie

It’s that season again! This weekend I was on SFWA’s programming at Baltimore Book Fest, which was a lovely weekend of panels, people, and lovely weather in Baltimore’s Inner Harbour.   I’ve got two more cons coming up this year, Capclave and World Fantasy Convention, so in the interest of…

Reflections, Retrospectives, and Go-Go-Gadget Listeners

I’m going to start by saying I don’t know where to start. Thanks to technology, I met Joshua Harris (author of I Kissed Dating Goodbye) a little while back, and we talked on the phone about…well. A lot. He said it was cool to blog about it. (By the time…

A HALL OF KEYS AND NO DOORS is Here! In the Wild!

Today has been kind of a blur already, but I wanted to do a post all official-like to celebrate that release day has arrived! A HALL OF KEYS AND NO DOORS also got an amazing first review from someone whose name, by sheer serendipity, is the same as the loved…

Letters to the Emmie-nator: Or, How To Stay Productive

This morning I woke up at the butt-crack of not even dawn. Yesterday, my partner and I took an Unplug Day, wherein we avoided our phones, the internet, and outside. We woke up, started a puzzle, made some delicious breakfast (cheesy eggs and french toast sticks with a berry syrup),…

Cover Reveal for LOOK TO THE SUN!

Oh my dog, you lot. I am so excited to be writing this post. This book is something special to me. Each book I write contains parts of me, but this one took that to a new level (as is the other book I’m working on now). I think that’s…
