Flash Fiction & Book Trailer

Recently, I went through my flash fiction site (Flash Dash Challenge) and made the following changes:

  • Added excerpt pages for each year, available to be viewed by anyone without a password. (Passwords for full stories are given to $1+ subscribers on Patreon.)
  • A single password has been updated for all stories.
  • The Mildred Pim page is now visible to all.
  • Excerpt pages are linked within the List of Fiction page.

If you’re not already a patron, and you’re curious what stories are available to subscribers, you can view excerpts of each story for the following years: 2014, 2015, and 2016. Please note: all stories are in their raw form, and not edited for publication.

As for The Grasp of Time book trailer that I’ve been hinting at for a while, I’ve finally gotten my act together, and am uploading files TODAY for a video editor, so there might be something to show you in the next couple of weeks! The actors in the video have been super patient with me, as life interrupted our plans.

Given my inexperience directing and filming a trailer, I’m hoping the video editor can do these lovely people justice for all their hard work and skills.

Flying Cars in TGoT

Science Fiction has been promising flying cars for about a century. The Grasp of Time continues the tradition, showing the late 21st century to have finally developed the technology.

[WORLD-BUILDING SPOILERS]

The difficulties come, of course, with legislation and infrastructure. Hence why there are control towers throughout a future Seattle, and why the majority of flying cars are predominantly mass transportation or taxi services. Flying isn’t something everyone can manage by that point, but perhaps by the 22nd century, people will have it figured out.

If only they could do something about the racist faction against Fae-born and other magical creatures roaming the world of the future.

Amakai Series: Queer Representation

sunset-hands-love-woman.jpgAs some readers may already know, Robin and I are queer. Both of us are pansexual, and I identify as genderfluid. Thus, our stories are filled with queer characters.

In The Grasp of Time, among our named characters, there are:

  • two pansexuals
  • four bisexuals
  • one omnisexual
  • two demisexuals
  • one lesbian
  • one gay man
  • and a celibate, aromantic psychopath no one should try to get close to

Many of our characters are gender non-conforming, yet still cisgender, however one character is genderfluid, another is non-binary.  That’s six heterosexuals to twelve queer people. Because if we can’t put representation into our own stories, what’s the point?

In future books, there will be asexual characters, openly transgender characters, and people who don’t fit into neat categories in the least (Khraesch certainly doesn’t). As with everything, I have a spreadsheet for this.
