Renegade Magic2
First: the cover vote for A Reckless Magick (the UK edition of Kat 3) has spoken: the cover will be yellow!



Thanks so much to everyone who voted on this cover! I'm really happy with the result. A Reckless Magick will be published in the UK on October 1st, and you can preorder it now from Foyles, Waterstones, Amazon.co.uk, or The Book Depository.

Second: my short story "Dancing in the Dark" is going to be published in Daily Science Fiction this Friday! If you want to read it on Friday, just subscribe to their email list, and they'll email the story directly to your inbox Friday morning. If you'd rather not, you can read it one week later, when they'll post the story online for everybody to see. (And I'll definitely post that link here when it's ready!)

There are some stories I write for fun, and some for a challenge...and some stories, like this one, that I write just to survive my emotions in the wake of a traumatic event. "Dancing in the Dark" is one of my most deeply-felt stories, and although re-reading the galleys last week raised painful memories for me, I do love the story and can't wait for it to be published.

(Note for any kids or parents who might be reading: unlike my novels, "Dancing in the Dark" isn't MG. It was written for adults, and it does include some strong language.)

Third: I sent off a big freelance project today, a day early! Wooooot! I am planning to celebrate...just as soon as I can gather up the energy. Sigh. MrD woke REALLY early today! But I'm hoping to head into town tomorrow for a celebratory slice of chocolate cheesecake at Caffé Nero. Mmmm....

I have been secretly hoping that yellow would win ever since reading your argument in its favor! :)

Those covers look great together! And Rani is pleased the one she vote for was the winner. Congrats on finishing your freelance project and enjoy your cheesecake!

It was a great surprise to see your name when I opened my email from Daily Science Fiction this morning, and a pleasure to read the story. Parts of it resonated with me quite a bit. My father's oldest brother drowned when my dad was 15. I grew up hearing stories about him (including ghost stories, ha).

Thank you so much for sharing that. It really means a lot to me to hear that the story resonated with you.
