A belated annual review: 2018 to 2019

A belated annual review: 2018 to 2019

For many years I've posted an annual review at the end of each year in which I wrap up the previous year and give a preview of what's coming up. I didn't do that at the end of 2018, but as the weeks of 2019 roll by (slowly, filled with way too much news) I realized that I don't want to skip my annual review. So, even though this is a little late, here we go!

I had several short stories published last year, and it's not too late to read them!

"New Year" (published in Feb. 2018 in the anthology All Out) is about a Chinese American girl in 1950s San Francisco who discovers that there's a lesbian community right next door to her Chinatown home. If you're a regular reader of my blog or a follower on social media, you'll know that "New Year" is turning into a full-length novel (I'm working on it right now), so you can get a sneak peek at it in the story!

Today I have a new short story available for you to read! It's called "Meet Cute" and it's in the latest We Need Diverse Books anthology, Fresh Ink, edited by Lamar Giles.

The two characters who meet cutely are Nic, who is cosplaying as a gender-flipped Sulu from Star Trek, and Tamia, who is cosplaying as a race-bent Dana Scully from The X-Files.*
