Change In The Wind Says I

Good morning, Everyone!

I’ve only got a short post for you today. I’m restructuring my blog schedule due to the nature of a few projects I’ve got going on. At this point, many of you know I’m closing in on the end of a draft for my next book The Hunting Sticks. I’m also getting ready to write a story for Arcane Synthesis, an anthology of short stories set in the Cosmothea Universe; which by the way has a fast closing window for its Kickstarter. Stop on by and check it out HERE. Continue reading

Color me in Cyanide and Cherry

Mrs. Seelie

I have no sovereign
nor saint,
no prayer or a pitcher.
Before love
my bones are brittle,
my soul fades under the streetlight,
forgive me –
before you
of angles and flesh
I lay this ribcage accordion!
Play! Sing!
Speak to me!
Or the night will pull out your tongue
and plant it between my knees
for poppies to grow;
to court me.

I am a recitation of ash;
my eyes were once a train station
that stretched and curved
until it disappeared in the ocean.
The mermaids sold their harps,
I have no sisters
or relatives;
no queens or mistresses.
Resolve me like a silhouette into your breath,
the Moon taps the stars
as if they were drums;
your kind calls it
heartbeats.

Do not ask of me
furs and stalagmites
nor mismatched wings;
not even a name I have!

A Taste Of Things To Come

Good morning, Everyone!

I’ve got a special treat today. I’ve been hammering away on my next book, The Hunting Sticks, for this whole month so far. This draft feels like it’s coming along really great! I had originally aimed for about 60k words but I blew right by that and readjusted for about 80k words. Also, I remembered to update my word count progress bars over there on the right sidebar!
