The final novel in my mom’s science fiction saga is coming out soon! She claims there will be no more big writing projects now that she is also a publisher; I remain dubious as to whether she can really cut down to two-and-a-half jobs…workaholic;-)

My sappy and wonderful husband decided that although Drescopata is my make-believe planet, this doesn’t mean that it can’t be a real star! Someday, if my novel series becomes well known, it will be an added bonus that the fans can search the night sky for the star named after Drescopata.

At last, I have my contributer copy of Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine in my hands! Needless to say I am especially fond of Australians at the moment. My egotistical imagination has the whole continent enjoying my one short story; you know, whether or not they read the magazine, or science fiction, or fiction of any kind. Rest of the world: remember it is an internationally accessible magazine with digital options available;-) http://www.andromedaspaceways.com/buy-now/latest-issue-2/

“Brian Hades and Lynda Williams are pleased to announce the formation of a new and independent publishing venture: Reality Skimming Press.” I knew mom would never stop at the mere creation of an entire universe (not to mention the novels, novellas, anthologies and blogs that let us peek into it). Nope, she’s launching optimistic fiction business right here on Earth. She has an amazingness quota she has to fill and her three-and-a-half jobs don’t cut it;-)

I am privileged to know Nina Munteanu — novelist and writing teacher. In this picture I am holding two of her published works. “Journal Writer: Finding Your Voice” is a guidebook for expressive writers in writing journals, diaries and memoirs. “Natural Selection” is a collection of short stories which explore humanity’s co-evolution with our environment and technology. Find out more about Nina at http://www.ninamunteanu.com/

I read chapter 7 of my third Drescopata novel (Ruby) to my parents, my sister Tegan and guest writer Nina Munteanu. What a wonderful audience! I got lots of laughs and great feedback. Evenings like these really motivate me to finish my new chapters just in time for gatherings:-)

My mom’s ninth Okal Rel novel has just been published. Only one more to go and her science fiction saga will be complete! Whew, I have a lot of books to live up to… http://www.edgewebsite.com/books/holywar/holywar-catalog.html

I read a Drescopata scene to an audience of writers and their supporters. My parents and husband came to show their support for me. This was my second reader spot in this monthly event organized by TWS (http://www.sfu.ca/continuing-studies/about/program-units/the-writers-studio-community/reading-series.html). I have yet to witness a writer apart from myself and my mother reading anything based in fantasy or science fiction. The TWS community seems to be made up mostly of poetry and memoir writers. It’s nice to be different and still included. Following four readers of dark poetry, my work felt like a refreshing change. There is something to be said for letting an audience fall into a somber trance before bouncing them off a magical planet in giant soap bubbles…don’t you think?
