Beating the Bounds [preorder]

Beating the Bounds [preorder]

Hot on the heels of WIKC, I am similarly (VERY) pleased to announce another forthcoming publication, from Less Than Three Press. The team at LT3 are awesome, and continue to put out spectacular works across the QUILTBAG spectrum. I’m a huge fan of the anthologies and collections and am proud to be part of the Fairytales.com collection.

Beating the Bounds is a f/f re-imagining of the Tam Lin story, with 100% less magical pregnancies and 100% more small town bureaucracy. Because a fairy tithe only counts if it’s noted in the Parish Council minutes.

Cover of Beating the Bounds.Jamie has moved to Marlstrake, Northumberland, after a messy break-up, looking for escape into quiet country life. Instead she finds Lyn, a charming if slightly odd local, and sparks fly. However, Lyn’s ex—Margaret, head of the Parish Council—views Jamie as a rival. Curses, both literal and figurative, follow. So do cursebreakers, shapeshifting, and struggling to save one’s crush from being sacrificed as tithe to Faerie. Also there’s a talking cat.

I’d be utterly remiss not to mention the gorgeous cover by Aisha Akeju. I may have stroked the screen a time or two, trying to feel the embossed letters. It has yet to work but I keep trying!

Beating the Bounds is my first published f/f and was great fun to write. It comes out April 19, 2017, and can be preordered from Less Than Three Press here.

A 23k sci-fi grey-a novella, this is part of the Solitary Travelers collection at Less Than Three Press.


Captain Tam spends his life travelling through space on his beloved ship, the Paradigm Princess, and he likes nothing better than being alone with the horizon. However, when a routine stop on his favourite planet brings an unexpected new crew member, he breaks routine and agrees to take her on board—because if Tam plays this through, the powerful Marquis will owe him a favour. Surely that’s worth a detour.

Part of the forthcoming Solitary Travelers collection at Less Than Three Press, DotW is a sci-fi novella with a grey-a protag and its existence is a perfect example of well that escalated quickly.

Truth: I had not written anything longer than a blog post since 2012. Link-hopping brought me to this call for ace characters wandering the universe and friends, that is my life. Fervent word-juggling ensued, and I can still recall the sense of accomplishment once I got to the end of the first draft.

Several drafts later, here we are! Now with a beautiful cover by Aisha Akeju that I swoon over every time I see it.

Dust on the Wing will be released on March 16, 2016, and is currently available for preorder.
