Eating Authors, and a Big Deal Patreon release

Have you heard of Eating Authors? Every Monday, author Lawrence M. Schoen poses the question: "Tell me about your most memorable meal." And this past Monday, April 29, it was my turn! Many thanks to Lawrence for having me, and I was also happy to comb through my food memories and see what I produced.  Lots of fantastic posts are there, and it's easy to spend quite a lot of time reading about other people's awesome meals!

In other news, the first of the month (as you may or may not know) is Story Day on my Patreon! This month, I have the pleasure of sharing with my patrons my short story "Purity", which was a finalist for the 2017 Baen Fantasy Adventure Award. I'm a little shocked that I didn't blog about it at the time, but honestly, "finalist" is "close, but no cigar".

But, the site is still up for that year, so you can see the proof:

So, for $1, you can read the short story that came this close. The author notes, as always, are free. I really like this story a lot, and I'm happy to finally have it in the world, and maybe get some eyes on it. So, tell your friends!

Speaking of friends, here's a picture of Ulrike and her best dog friend, Nova, at the dog park the other day.
