Welcome to Issue #11 of my quarterly newsletter, posted to csmaccath.com and e-mailed to subscribers on Beltane 2014.
The Baddeck Public Library has graciously invited me to participate in its Thursday evening reading series. I'll be there on June 12th from 6:30 to 7:30 reading my forthcoming story 'N Is for Nanomachine', which will appear in the A Is for Apocalypse anthology.
The lovely Jolene Dawe recently interviewed me for her Celebrating Pagan Fiction series! You can check out the interview here. Many thanks to Jolene for her thoughtful questions and for offering me the opportunity to discuss the intersections between my faith and my writing.
I was recently the featured poet at Polu Texni, and you can read my poem entitled 'Coming of Age' here. Many thanks to editor Dawn Albright for her thoughtful treatment of my work.
Speaking of A Is for Apocalypse, editor Rhonda Parrish is planning a cover reveal for the anthology on May 13th, and you can participate! Just head over to her Cover Reveal Sign-Up entry and let her know you're interested by posting a comment. She's giving away an ARC to a randomly-selected participant in thanks, so you might just get to read the anthology before anyone else does. (Well, except for the authors, of course. I have a PDF proof, and I can tell you this book is full of the awesomesauce.)
I'm super stoked to announce that I'm continuing my participation in Rhonda Parrish's alphabet anthology series. Her second offering is entitled B Is for Broken, and I've been randomly assigned the letter 'C'. This time, I'll be writing a piece of high fantasy entitled 'C Is for Cloister'. Perhaps I'll have a story teaser for you at Lughnasadh...
Vegan Recipe of the Quarter
I just made this hearty recipe for Vegan Shepherd's Pie with Gravy yesterday, and it turned out astonishingly well, perfect for a rainy spring evening. Check out the rest of the Oh She Glows recipes while you're there; it's a great web site!
That's all for now. Thanks for reading, and I'll be back at Lughnasadh with more news and nomz.
All the best,
