If you are a journalist writing about Texas and you’re talking solely about “women’s rights” then you are doing it wrong. You are literally doing journalism wrong. The fight in Texas about abortion involves more than just women. Be a better journalist.

I lent Victories Greater Than Death to a student this year and she spent our entire lunch break talking to me about how amazing it was. “It did things I haven’t seen other books do” and “It was the best representation of queer folks I’ve ever seen.” Bravo,

It's a tough time to be promoting a book, what with book tours still not really happening. And a single-author collection is especially challenging at the best of times. So I would really really appreciate any help you can give with signal-boosting and pre-ordering.
I'm as proud of these tales as of anything else I've ever done. They are apocalyptic, romantic, political, dirty, queer and whimsical. They run the gamut from silly comedy to dark dystopia, but what ties them together is a focus on relationships and human connection.
Short fiction is often overlooked in our relentless focus on novels and novellas, but I really believe that a tiny story can spark a mighty blaze. You can pack so much oddness and flights of fancy and warmth and character into a few thousand words.
I guarantee even if you've read a bunch of my stuff, you haven't read a lot of these stories before. Many of them appeared in tiny literary magazines, small-press anthologies and niche venues.
These are stories about people trying to create meaning for themselves when the world is just going sideways and upside down. There's a thread running through all these tales: We can use creativity and community-building to solve the most impossible problems.
