My urban fantasy story “Somebody Else’s Problem” will be appearing in Fiction River #5: Hex in the City next month. But you can listen to it for free on the WMG Publishing podcast for the next week! It has tattoos, telepathic rats, magic, and lots of action. What more could you want from urban fantasy, right?
My one convention appearance this year will be at Orycon in lovely Portland, Oregon. Here’s the info: http://35.orycon.org/
I’ll be on six panels over the course of the three days. Here’s my schedule:
Publishing Your Ebook
Roosevelt Fri Nov 8 2:00pm-3:00pm

Hybrid Vigor: Choosing Both Traditional and Self-Publishing

(Yeah, that little * next to my name up there? They made me a moderator of one of the panels. Mwahahahaha…ahem. I’ll be good. Probably. Maybe. I’ll try at least )
Until then, writing ALL the things. Also attending a week long workshop on writing Science Fiction. Because hopefully I never stop learning.
I’ve been pretty busy lately finishing up some projects and doing some stuff for projects I can’t talk about yet, but I figured I’d update and let people see a preview of what is coming in the next three months from myself and Doomed Muse Press.
First up, I’m just finishing the first full-length Gryphonpike Chronicles novel. It’s got rogues, dragons, ship battles, and general adventuring awesomeness. Here’s the cover:
After that I’m turning my focus to short fiction and novellas for a couple months since I have three short story collections almost ready to go.
The first is a general science fiction and fantasy collection in the same vein as my previous collection “Till Human Voices Wake Us”. It will have about 10 short stories and novelettes as well as one or two novellas. Here’s the cover for it:
The second collection will be of my urban fantasy short fiction, including a brand new Remy Pigeon story as well as a brand new novella. Here is the cover for that:
And finally the third collection will be an adventure fantasy collection featuring six short stories, two novelettes, and a brand new novella (or maybe two if I get carried away, I have two I really want to write and include so it will depend on time). Here is the cover for the adventure fantasy collection:
So expect those out before Christmas! I’ll post when they are available with full descriptions and links where you can find them. Now, back to the word mines.
I have five free audio books for The Barrows to give away. If you are willing to leave a candid review and would like a free copy from Audible, email me at anniembellet AT gmail DOT com.
There should be new Gryphonpike out next week, as well, so look for it after the holiday.
Hey, things have been quiet around here. I’ve been doing a bunch of work for some anthologies that will be out next year and later this year. I’m wrapping that stuff up and expect to have new Gryphonpike novellas out in the next month.
Meanwhile, two new audio books came out today. Narrated by Christine Padovan (who has done all the GPC novellas so far and does a lovely job), Dead of Knight and The Barrows (the first GPC omnibus collecting the first four novellas) are now available.
Two new audiobooks are out, both of them in the Remy Pigeon series and narrated by the awesome Dan Boice. Below are cover pictures for the audio versions. Click on the covers to see the books at Audible.com.
In other news, I’m hard at work on more Gryphonpike Chronicles novellas, with the next Pyrrh novel also in the works.
So, here’s my obligatory award post. If you are eligible to vote in the Nebulas or Hugos, please consider my work. Some is free to read online, links included below.

(Avarice misses the SFWA cut-off for novel by a few hundred words, so while I consider it a novel for all intents and purposes, for award purposes, it is technically in the novella category)
Thank you. There are many awesome stories and books out there by amazing writers. The most important thing is that you vote!
