A Busy New Year: Guest Posting with C. Lee McKenzie, Thinking Through Our Fingers, and IWSG Pitch Event!


Happy New Year, Blogosphere!

It took a while to find my footing after the apple dropped on Times Square. I'm here now and, apparently, scattered in many directions. My first contributing post to Thinking Through Our Fingers is up now, and so is a little something about the Full Dark anthology on C. Lee Mckenzie's blog. Go and have a look see. Their sites are amazing.


In spreading the word, aspiring writers won't want to miss this event! It's the second Insecure Writers Support Group Twitter Pitch. How does it work? All writers and authors are invited to participate. Create a Twitter-length pitch for your completed and polished manuscript and leave room for genre, age, and the hashtag. On January 18, Tweet your pitch. If your pitch receives a favorite/heart from a publisher/agent check their submission guidelines and send your requested query. One Twitter pitch every hour per manuscript.

For complete rules and guidelines, visit the ISWG website.

In others news: I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. Mine was filled with gratitude and reflection, and thoughts on where I want to go as a person and a writer. Work is stabilizing, and I now have my Fridays off again to write. The Woven sequel is quite literally close to being wrapped up with some 20 pages left to polish. It's Butt-In-Chair season, people! After that? Back to zombies and other stuff.   My Zombie Summer: Part 2 is well overdue, but I have high hopes to have it ready and released within the year, as well as another secret fantasy novel. More on that one as we get closer to finishing it.

And the new Star Wars movie? Not bad. Old Luke is super fun.

That's all for now, my friends. This looks to be a big year for sci fi and fantasy in all mediums, so I'll be sure to highlight what I find that you don't want to miss. Like the release of The Death Cure--been waiting a while, and it looks pretty good. Until the next post, keep it crispy!

I'm David, and porgs are tasty . . .

  11. Hi David,

    I enjoyed Woven, so I'm sure I'll enjoy other books you create. Loved your story, Forerunner, in the Lost anthology. Great to host you this week.

    I'm a little concerned for the porgs. Are they on the endangered list by any chance?

  12. Would love to get an ARC of the Woven sequel if possible :)))

  13. I liked the new Star Wars film, too, but a lot of people hate it. In my case, I haven't followed the series for eight million years, so I don't have the emotional investment in the franchise that some people do.
