Ellison Blackburn is the author of several fictional works of the speculative, science fiction, dystopian, fantastic, cyberpunk, and steampunk variety. Before becoming a storyteller, Ellison’s career followed a path unrelated to creative writing almost entirely. And it was not until she had penned her first science fiction novel that her education and work backgrounds mingled sensibly. Nowadays, time away from writing, editing, and coaching is spent plotting and researching future stories. Learn more at EllisonBlackburn.com, or join her Facebook group. Follow her on Amazon, Bookbub, Facebook, Twitter, and Goodreads.

NaNoWriMo—for those of you unfamiliar with the…initialism, nope…acronym, not quite…term, no; let’s go with shortening—stands for National November Writing Month, and I may have mentioned before that it is no longer a national writing initiative but a global one. I did not participate this year. While it is super motivat...

Jeff Wheeler, The Scourge of Muirwood
