Tonight I'll be joining Chris-Rachael Oseland (AKA Kitchen Overlord--you know, the sandworm bread) on Facebook Live at 8:00 PM Central to help demo the dark art of bone marrow creme brûlée. Tune in to be thrilled and amazed, and possibly repulsed by the squishy parts.
I had a lovely time at ArmadilloCon, and today the latest issue of Nightmare Magazine is available, featuring my story "Fossil Heart." This may or may not be a heartwarming story about a girl and her dog.

Can horror movies be feminist? Can feminists love horror? Is horror ever romantic?
Horror Movie "Scene It" Game (ADULT)
Sat 10:00 PM-11:00 PM Ballroom F
Downum, Fotinos*, Maresca, Perez, Thompson
**ADULTS ONLY** Fangoria Horror star Professor Griffin will host a game show in which participants watch a scene from a horror movie and then answer a series of questions follow. The scenes contain nudity and gore and may offend some, so this is an adults-only event.
Erisín is a haunted city, and her specters are hungry. When demons prowl the streets of Oldtown, preying on the poor and the weak, a young actor must face the ghosts of his past and of his family to protect his new home.
"Bone Garden" is a novelette set in Erisín following the events of The Bone Palace. It was originally published in Subterranean's A Fantasy Medley 2 (ed. Yanni Kuznia) in 2012. It's now available on Kindle and Smashwords.
If anyone has any other platforms or file types they prefer, I can make it more widely available. This is my attempt at self-pubbing anything, so feedback is appreciated.
I don't yet have a convention schedule for this year's ArmadilloCon, but I will be an instructor for the writing workshop.
I'll also be appearing on Austin's local KAZI Book Review hosted by Hopeton Hay, KAZI 88.7 FM. I'll be in the studio with Steve Winfrey, Tim Chamberlain, and Stephanie Powell, talking about SFF and mysteries and who knows what else. The show airs from 12:30 to 1:00 PM on June 5th.
