i can’t believe i’m saying this, but i’m 9 days from being homeless. no one will rent to us. we’re not being evicted, but have to be out of the place we’ve lived for 12.5 years at the end of the month. if anyone knows of a place where 3 adults can live that’s safe for a transgender woman in the NJ/NY area, please let me know.
Remember that fight I was working on? Weeelll, it started to get complicated, so I used my DnD skills to map it out and plot character movements.. Monsters/aliens are turned over to prevent spoilers, but some of the Keepers are visible. #amwriting #dnd #rp #roleplaying #amwritingscifi #scifi
Cover art for my YA SFF book (released Jan 2017), Stone of Power. I didn't do it, but I'm really happy with it and it looks stunning IRL. The scene on the cover does happen in the book! The heroes go to Paris in their space planes to fight a monster.

@Siphonay Because they can't image having women as friends (the most basic form of human interaction beyond family), so we can't be anything more to them than a commodity. It's also why they get all bent out of shape when the women in their life have male friends, because we're not friendship material, so there must be more going on.. in their minds.
@Burleybanana I'd agree with that, and to it, the rise of flowering plants, which meant the eventual rise of fruit. This opened the way for more omnivores and opportunist. You don't really need super specialized teeth/beaks to deal with fruit, like you do for fibrous plants or meat.
Raptor: Tran's not allowed to touch the Stone of Fire ever again.
Aspen: The lava.
Raptor: Oh, you read that report, hu?
Aspen: The one about Hawaii? Yeah.
Raptor: No, the one where he shook the Stone and it started erupting lava.
Aspen: He summoned lava into the base twice?
