As per usual, some of the Word Posse gang will be at Archon, the science-fiction/fantasy convention held at the end of September/beginning of October every year in Collinsville, Illinois. This year, you can see Tom Drennan, Deborah Millitello, and Marella Sands there.
Come join us and meet lots of authors, artists, costumers, gamers, and more!
Info on Archon here.
Bone of My Bone, a story by Marella Sands, will be in the anthology Masques of Darkover, which is currently available for pre-order on Amazon and other book-ordering locations online. It officially goes on sale May 2.
Deborah J. Ross, the editor of the anthology, has posted an interview with Marella on her blog, located here. Take a look!
I’ve never really plotted out a series before. Certainly not one where the first seven or so stories are already lined up. But I’m going to be putting out a novella every 2-3 months for a year or so and see how it goes. The first one is just out!
The novellas center on a bartender named Teryl Gray, who is slowly drawn into a world of terror, betrayal, and magic that she never knew existed. Underneath the skin of this world is another world, and it has been waiting for the right time to break forth…
Available now on Amazon!
It’s time for Archon again! Come out to the convention center in Collinsville, Illinois, this weekend (Sept 30-Oct 2) and meet a couple of your Word Posse authors.

Four Word Posse authors gathered at Main Street Books in St. Charles to sign copies of their works. Sharon Shinn visited about halfway through. Everyone had a great time and we met some wonderful folks, including one woman who said she’d waited four years to meet Rett MacPherson in person and tell her how much she loves the Torie O’Shea mysteries. So sweet!
