Sorry for the slowness of my writing process of late. I've been deluged with projects, and I've just returned from the World Fantasy writer's convention in Saratoga Springs, New York. I just thought that I'd tell you that one of my poems is being featured at Pens On Fire this month. This one's called "Ephemeral Empires". I wrote it back in '03, just as I was starting at the library. I spruced it up and submitted it a while ago. Happily, it was accepted. It's the first poem I've gotten published in a while (haven't been submitting much--bad me!) Anyway, I hope you're all well. I'll try to get something up on Hawkcircle within the next week or so.
