These are definitely not the unicorns of fairytales (although there is at least one fairytale here). Rather, they are good, evil, chaotic, and calm. And while unicorns are the theme, they aren’t always the central characters—but they are always significant. My story is the capstone at the end of the collection, entitled The Taxidermist. THE TAXIDERMIST: The Hunter is growing old—dying, in fact. But when a young girl intrudes into his lif...

The original incarnation of this story was an interactive webserial, where installments were posted alongside polls. By voting, readers made decisions that pushed the story forward. An eccentric heiress sets out on a dangerous mission, enlisting the aid of a dashing sky pirate, a sarcastic ticker, and a hodge-podge crew. This book includes all three published volumes of the Choose adventure, taking us from accidental inebriation through cookin...

I have taken (and loved) many of Holly Lisle’s online writing courses. When she sounded the call for her students to join together and submit stories for her first ever short story collection, I was thrilled at the opportunity. When my story won second place in the contest, I was over-the-moon, and I hope you love it as much as she did! Thirty-five imaginative stories crafted by the students of renowned fantasy author Holly Lisle, collec...

Kingsman: The Secret Service
Books, TV, & Movies / August 27, 2015

I have been a poor friend to all of you, and I apologize most sincerely. In what way have I failed you, you might ask? I have yet to recommend (nay, DEMAND) that you acquire a copy of Kingsman and watch it post-haste. (Unless you’re SUPER squeamish, because there are some truly epic fight s...

12. Sea Legs

Hank boarded the Miraj like a man coming home. She floated in one of the broad harbor bays on the wealthier side of the docks. On either side of her, bright-canvassed clippers nodded like sleek thoroughbreds. By contrast, she looked like a rusty lemon dropped in a bathtub. She rode low in the wat...

11. The Man in the Raspberry Suit

That was, Remora mused as they arrived at the wharf, quite possibly the most awkward carriage ride she had ever had the misfortune to participate in. She’d tried to make small talk, truly she had, but never before had she encountered such a dour group of individuals! McCoy glared at Jinn. Jinn cl...

10. A Carriage Awaits

“Sh-Sh-Shinra’ere!” Hank turned to see the warden standing in the doorway to Holding as though undecided whether he should enter or flee. Face red and eyes round, he pointed a quivering finger at Jinn. “Leave! All of you!” Hank ignored the man, turning back to level a glare at Jinn. “You’ve...

Using a Moleskine As a Weekly Planner
Adventures in Real Life / August 6, 2015

I have been using a tiny Moleskine as my weekly planner for years now. YEARS. My current notebook is known as Barry the Fourth, and he continues the glorious tradition of making me look like I’ve got my shit together. Remembering things is NOT my strong suit. It’s not even my WEAK sui...

9. Jinn

“You wish to pay for the release of Hank McCoy?” “And his cellmate as well,” Remora repeated. She wondered if perhaps the poor woman was a trifle hard of hearing. The officer gave her a bemused look before turning away to thumb through some paperwork on her desk. Honestly, the way the woman...

Videorama: Dirty Laundry
Videorama / July 31, 2015

This? This is not an easy video short to watch. Do NOT watch if you are squeamish. If, however? You want to see the Punisher as he was MEANT to be? (The movie was good, mind you, but this is BETTER). You should watch this.
