Heya, it's Denise Drespling! Thank you so much, Maria, for having me at your blog!
This has been an exciting week for me. I've had three different releases and started NaNoWriMo! On November 1, a video and two of my short stories were released:
- In this video, recorded for the Facebook group, The Dragon's Rocketship, I battle it out with co-host Thomas Manning to see which is really better--print books or ebooks. There's even a writer zombie! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dHiKCSZxj-M&index=5&list=PLDQEmsqINK0hHvBD6gdmZl6HA-9OgvkfG
- My short story, "10 Items or Less," which was originally published in 10: Carlow's MFA Anniversary Anthology, was released as a video/audiobook read by me through the audio literary magazine, Bad Actors: Writers With Microphones. In this story, a boyfriend must battle long lines and social constructs in order to appease his demanding girlfriend. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5LwlqPxO_Aw&index=3&list=PLDQEmsqINK0hHvBD6gdmZl6HA-9OgvkfG
- My short story, "Where Happiness Dies," was published in the anthology, The Dragon's Rocketship Presents: The Scribe's Journal. This story is the unexpected adventure of a man who travels to a hidden world, only to find it nearly destroyed by the dragon who rules it. Get The Scribe's Journal on ebook or paperback here:
And now I'm back off to NaNoWriMo, where my mystery novel awaits completion!
I write like a fiend and read like a maniac and always have multiple projects happening at once. I write mostly fiction that contains some element of fantasy/sci-fi/supernatural/paranormal.
In between writing and reading, I work at my church as a web designer, a job that I adore completely, which allows me to be creative and goofy all day. I am married to a man just as silly as I am and I'm the mother to a daughter who inherited both sets of silly genes. I am a cat person. Nough said. I also make stuff out of books. I pretty much go from one creative outlet to another, which makes me rather strange and interesting.
I've been told that I am "uniquely unique" and "more entertaining than cable." Also, I tend to talk a lot ;)
