Just a quick note: WHAT FATES IMPOSE (edited by Nayad Monroe) is now out, so if you missed pre-ordering it through the Kickstarter, you can buy a copy now. The print copies are $15.99 and e-books are $4.99.
Here’s the Alliteration Ink page, which provides multiple links to buy the book. Choose a bookseller! Buy direct! Fork over your filthy, filthy money!
This book contains my story, “Gazing into the Carnauba Wax Eyes of the Future,” which is about divination via vomit. (Also, I slapped a queer stuff tag on this post because MY story is gay. I’ve been lazy and thus can’t tell you how much of the rest of the book is, though.)
I could re-iterate stuff about the story, but instead I’m going to link to the post that I made when I was flogging the Kickstarter project: here.
Also, here’s the Goodreads page, where you can still write reviews for the anthology, probably, unless Goodreads helpfully deletes them for you.

A while back, I announced that I’d sold a short story to Nayad Monroe for an anthology project. I wrote a story inspired by an event back in Bellingham that involved, erm, a lot of marshmallow peeps. If you’re from Bellingham, you may remember this event. If not… well, I totally never did anything that sounds anything like any part of the story in the anthology, ever.
Anyway! The anthology as a whole looks pretty cool. It’s called “What Fates Impose” and is full of stories about predicting the future, since that always goes well. There are stories by Ken Scholes, Cat Rambo, Rochita Loenen-Ruiz, some assorted Inkpunks, and a bunch of others. Also, I’m sorry everybody, but Beth Wodzinski wins the trophy for best story title with, “One Tiny Misstep (In Bed).” CONGRATULATIONS, BETH. YOU GET A PRIZE. THE PRIZE IS… okay there isn’t really a prize for that. Sorry.
Right now, there’s a Kickstarter running for the book, where you can pre-order the ebook, print book, or get some other neat backer rewards. Because I’m super creative and original, I’ve got a few fiction critiques on offer as higher tier backer rewards.
Here’s the link.
On top of everything listed in the actual Kickstarter page, Nayad is currently running an additional giveaway for people who back the project before June 21: Details, details, details.
The project should be pretty cool and you should totally back it if you haven’t already. And I’m not even just saying that because I want to get paid.
