It’s Been a Good Run

About six years ago, I quit my dayjob and went full-time freelance, working for SFWA, Paizo’s Pathfinder Tales, Prime Books, and others. Since then, I’ve handled an amazing variety of clients, from simple advice for self-published authors, to the memorable time the Ambassador from Finland and his cultural attache plied me with drinks while we […]

Announcing: Strange California

Strange California Take a journey up Highway 99. Stop off just north of Bakersfield where a young woman stands on the edge of Woollomes Avenue, looking apprehensive, debating if she should cross.

I’m finally home after three or so months of travel–Dragon Con, Seattle, California, Poland, Czech Republic, Germany–and realizing just how much I have to do in the next month. So, what am I up to?

A Bright and Painful Future

Dear SF: The hate in the #HugoAwards hashtag is the bitter flailing of a species fighting extinction. Let them rage. We’ve got this future. That future is gorgeous, painful, diverse, socially-conscious, challenging, revolutionary. Don’t let the hate win. You got this. #HugoAwards Last night, the SF Twitter rather exploded. It wasn’t unexpected: the Hugo ceremony […]

Anyways, if you’re trying to find me, your best option is after one of the panels below, all of which take place in the Writers Symposium. Saturday and Sunday are, so far, my lightest […]

State of the Jaym

About a year ago, Charles Tan and Christie Yant pulled me aside (okay, so it was a Twitter conversation, but Very Stern) and pointed out that I needed an agent. The anthologies are taking off, and my career is wonderfully, hellishly diverse. I kind of had a moment where frustration got the better of me […]

Changing of the Guard

Effective July 1, 2015, I will no longer be SFWA’s Communications Director. It’s been a long, interesting, and educational time with the organization, and one that has been immensely beneficial to both sides. I have been considering my options for a while now. While I have had the fortune to work on many wonderful projects […]
