Book announcement: “Whispering Skin”

Oh, here I am! Back in 2020 I might’ve given you the false impression that I could write a book a minute, but that pace was just the result of a backlog I’d amassed. A year and change later, now that we’re fully recalibrated, I think it’s safe to tell you another story.

This story I just finished is deeply in the sci-fi mode. Whispering Skin is about a woman who’s unsatisfied with her safe, comfort

Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer
The tower, which was not supposed to be there, plunges into the earth in a place just before the black pine forest begins to give way to swamp and then the reeds and wind-gnarled trees of the marsh flats.
Have you ever fallen into a tunnel and discovered it was actually a tower? I had that experience in a magical, surreal place called Sintra, in Portugal—because Sintra includes a tower buried in the ground. When I think back, it’s that tower-tunnel that tripped a wire in my brain and combined with my favorite hike in North Florida to create ANNIHILATION. Our brains have to make story out of such moments to help understand them. The same way that my brain turned a dolphin I saw in a freshwater canal at the St. Marks Wildlife Refuge into an otter at first… because how could it be a dolphin? And, ...more
