It's after midnight. After taking the writing day off, I'm officially allowed to say that I'm writing a mystery set in 1890's Paris, featuring Jean and Gabriel from my story in the Sindustry anthology, "Fin de Siecle". No idea how long it's going to be, yet, but I'm giving myself permission to write it until the writing is done, and worry about the rest later. (This one is just me. We'll see how much progress I make, between editing and other projects.)

Also in progress are:

Peripheral People- a thriller about psychic detectives IN SPACE! (This is another book set in the Ylendrian Empire, the same universe as "The Balance of Silence" and the novel we just FINISHEDOMG, "The Slipstream Con".) (S. Reesa Herberth and Michelle Moore, for both.)
Lake Effect- a contemporary m/m paranormal, set in an imaginary town in rural Virginia. (Shea Meier)
Skies Made of 1's and 0's- a steampunk angel fantasy. (Again, just me.)

Michelle is working on a short story called "Enchanted Grounds", which is adorable, and sweet, and makes me wish I owned a magical coffee shop.

It's really no wonder I can never find the gumption to put away my laundry. At least, that's what I'm telling myself!

Enjoy a little unexpected holiday magic in our new novella, The Wishing Box!


Spencer Eaves is a busy designer who spends more time thinking about his next shoot than his love life, and more time arguing with his assistant, Katy, than he spends looking for Mr. Right. He meets Alex while shopping for the perfect desk for his next magazine spread, and when he can't stop thinking about Alex days later, returns to ask him out. The sparks are instant, and the whole world seems to take on a golden glow until Christmas starts to loom closer, and Alex's cheerful openness is replaced by fear that sends him running.

Spencer isn't willing to give up on them, even when Alex reveals the secret that might keep them apart for good. They have until Christmas to unravel the spell holding power over Alex, but with time running out it may take the magic of a wish, and some help from Santa himself, to make it a Merry Christmas.


I love this story like I love kittens and air. It's one of my favourite things that we've ever written. Unapologetically sweet, with a touch of fantasy and whimsy; I think it's a great way to make yourself smile and take a little breather in all of the holiday ruckus. I hope you enjoy it, too!
Who wants to see the cover of our first novella? I hope it's you!

It's up, it's up!

You Speak In Memory - Shea Meier

Greg wakes up after a night spent partying with the knowledge that he and his best friend, Andy, have finally crossed the line from friends to lovers. Waking up goes badly, and Andy storms out to work while Greg goes back to bed. He comes to again later outside of Andy's work, unable to remember how he got there.

Escaping, he meets Lorena, who seems oddly interested in his woes for a complete stranger. Then she takes him back to the previous night and he’s able to see what exactly happened with Andy, making Greg face some hard realizations. And some long-awaited honesty.


I am running out the ddoor to pick apples, but I'll be back later!
