It’s the last month of 2019 – here’s what I’ve published this year and where you can find it.
My first publication of the year was Projector, a story about queer cinema that appeared in We Were Always Here: A Queer Words Anthology from 404 Ink.
We Were Always Here is the largest publication I’ve been involved in to date – I had a great time being involved in talks and launch events for it around Glasgow, and seeing it stocked in local libraries and queer bookshops.
You can find We Were Always Here at 404 Ink’s website here.
Over the summer, I had a reprint of Countess de Mar, a queer gothic time loop story, featured in LampLight Volume 7, Issue 4.
Countess was my first professional sale back in 2016, and the anthology it was featured in is now out of print, so I was excited to see it reach more readers.
You can find LampLight Volume 7, Issue 4 here.
Lastly, if you’re a British Fantasy Society member, you’ll find my story Greenwoman, about a woman who wants to be a plant, in the December issue of members magazine BFS Horizons.
This was also the year when I started running Glasgow Fanfiction Open Mic Nights, which have been a great experience in reuniting me with writing purely for fun. If you’re reading this and would like to set up a similar event near you, I’m happy to answer questions and give advice on what I’ve learned so far, so please feel free to get in touch on Twitter or through the contact form on my homepage.
I’m proud of all of the work I’ve had printed this year, and I’m looking forward to what 2020 will bring – the start of the year will already be bringing the queer werewolf anthology I’ve been involved with for a few years, and I have one other anthology feature that I’ll be announcing once everything is signed off. You can check back here, or on my social media (in between all of the shitposts and pictures of cows) for more details.
