Look at this! It’s the Unidentified Funny Objects Table of Contents reveal! Twenty nine stories will make up this 80,000 word anthology.
Even the titles have me cracking up.“The Velveteen Golem” by David Sklar? I can’t wait to read all the other stories in the anthology. It’s not too far away. Click through to pre-order your copy in paperback or e-format.

Conversation overheard on a Sunday evening:
Me: Kyra can watch her show and I’ll stream an episode of Doctor Who. Then, we can read.
Andrew: No, no, no! Mom, don’t become one of those people!
Me: You mean a Doctor Who fan?
Me: Are some of your friends fans?
Andrew: Kind of.
Me: Little obsessed, are they?
Andrew (eye roll): …
Me: Well, I just started watching it. I like it.*
Andrew (head in hands, muttering into the pages of his AP World History book): No, no, no, no, no.
Kyra: Dr. Seuss? Can I watch?
* Yes, I know. As of last night, I’ve only watched two episodes of Doctor Who. I have now given up any pretense of nerd/geek cred.

I’m so excited to announce that my short story The Secret Life of Sleeping Beauty will be part of the Unidentified Funny Objects anthology, due out this November!
The Secret Life of Sleeping Beauty combines cell phones and swords with a really sucky sweet sixteen.
I’m positively thrilled that Sleeping Beauty was considered both funny enough and fantasy enough to be included. It’s a great way to start the week.
