Now's the time to hit Patreon and donate at $5 (or up), if you don't already! If you do, you will soon behold allllllllllll the SMU short stories in ebook form! I released The Library I a few years ago, and failed to release follow-up collections, but now's the time! Jeez, I just did math. I think it's like...140k words in all? Damn. In any event, all three volumes of The Library will hit Patreon for the $5+ folks on Tuesday! (And yes, if you're seeing this later, you can still get access to those books by supporting me at

SMU: Chronological Order!

Back by popular demand... Okay, okay, no one demanded it. But some folks in the Irregulars on Facebook were talking about reading order this morning, so I couldn't resist posting this again. This is all the novels, novellas, and shorts in series order. Most of the shorts for the foreseeable future will be on Patreon behind a patron wall, so I'll make note of those so folks who aren't over there don't click and get bummed out. Some of you will, of course, recognize this from days of yore... All the Everything in Strict Chronological Order: Behold, a list of

Starting HOLD TIGHT…

There's this moment at the beginning of a new book, when most of the book looks like this: That's Scrivener's full screen composition mode with a themed background. And a whole lot of blank documents. I've written books in a lot of different ways. I've written on a Smith Corona word processor (black background, orange type), I've written in Microsoft Works, and MS Word. I spent years writing in text documents because Word was a nightmare and since I was the only one who read my stories (often on my pre-smart phone), they didn't need to be formatted. Lately I've

The Girl is Mine (Ripper Reinterprets)

I love Michael Jackson. I should say: I love his music. I find the man himself problematic. (I watched the Oprah special, y'all; if he only did what his lawyers let him admit to on Oprah, I still wouldn't leave my children with him overnight.) But damn. I grew up in the eighties. And somewhere in some mouldering bin we still have my dad's old Jackson 5 albums. When I was an infant I'd scream in the car if the Thriller album wasn't on. I still fucking love those songs. And this is my favorite. Unless you're counting the cinematic extended version

Quilts, Plumbing, & Love (SFW)

This went up serialized for the As La Vista Turns promo, but I thought I'd run it off for folks who want it all in one piece. A little bit of Mildred. Runs concurrently with Touch, which you can pick up if you're a $5+ patron over at my, um, secret Patreon, which I will totally start telling people about any day now. Download here: EPUB | MOBI | PDF Or read below. Half the fun of being with someone as regimented as Zane was fucking with her. At least that’s what Dred told Emerson as she was annotating a list Zane had left up

As La Vista Turns: Excerpt

Chapter One I didn’t mean to kiss Dred. It was an accident. I was a little hungover after the wedding, and the sunlight was, like, glaring through my windshield, and when she got in the car I was happy to see her, so I kissed her. Okay, so “kiss Dred” wasn’t on my list of things to do, but it was an accident. And we were grown-ups. It was no big deal. Except for the way neither of us pulled back. Except for the way I really wanted to kiss her more. Except for the look in her eyes—all open
