[PATREON] SEPTEMBER ROUND UP





So … the late summer has been a bit of a rush.





In the last few weeks I have:





-had a project (Sorcerers) optioned for a television series by AMC





-was short-listed for the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Award for Genre (for Pimp My Airship)





-The Usual Suspects came out in paperback





-had the Apex Magazine Kickstarter fund in a couple of hours, thus ensuring that I’m now an editor at Apex Mag

“When the powerless seek their own sense of control, ‘crime’ is what an unjust system produces.”
Maurice Broaddus, Buffalo Soldier

“We turned the gun over to the police.”
Maurice Broaddus, The Usual Suspects

“There are people who want the status quo, and that’s what they’re advocating for. And even though I’ve taken a step back over the last couple years from being provocative online, I ended up getting in a shouting match with an editor because he was trying to defend his all-white anthology, and I’m like, ‘That’s all right. Own it. You wanted the status quo, you read only within your little comfort zone, you aren’t trying to find new voices, you want the voices that you’ve grown up with and that fit your little taste, and you don’t want to do the work of finding new voices. That’s fine, just own it.’ So yeah, you have editors who just want to fight for the status quo.”
Maurice Broaddus

Jeremy I want to apologize for the all the recommendations from me today. I only pressed the send button once--I'm not sure what happened.

Argh...this is terrible...

Again, I'm very sorry.
