“Portrait…” is going to be an AUDIOBOOK!!

I have wonderful news to share with you today. As I have already written¬†here, “A Portrait of the Desert in Personages of Power,” the Birdverse origin novella of queer/trans¬†supermages, consent, power exchange, and giant flaming birds, will be published by Beneath Ceaseless Skies.

We now have publication dates: the first part will appear on 7/6/2017, and the second part on 7/20/2017, bracketing ReaderCon. Please look for the novella and for Scott Andrews, the editor and publisher, there!

The second bit of news is this: there will be an AUDIOBOOK of Portrait narrated by the splendid C.S.E. Cooney, World Fantasy Award winner and an extraordinary voice artist. I have worked with Claire and Scott to create a pronunciation guide for the novella, and the recording is complete and is now being edited. I am so, so excited about this. It is going to be EPIC!
