New story “The High Cost of Heat” coming this Sunday

My new story “The High Cost of Heat” is coming to The Sunday Morning Transport very soon — June 2, 2024! Edited to add: Now out, link here!

The Sunday Morning Transport is an email magazine edited by Fran Wilde, and distributed via Substack. It does what it says on the box — a new story via email every Sunday Morning. You can sign up for a free 60 day trial subscription here, or choose the no cost subscription option which gives you the first story of the month for free. Either way, you get my new story in your inbox on Sunday!

“The High Cost of Heat” returns us to the world of “The Waters of Versailles” which was a finalist for the Nebula and World Fantasy awards in 2016.

In a formal Versailles reception room, with many paintings on the surrounding walls, Kelly (a red haired woman in glasses, wearing a black and white dress, black leggings, black jacket, and red Blundstone boots) strikes a goofy, one legged pose.
Me in Versailles!

Stories in The Sunday Morning Transport are all a maximum of 3500 words, which is a challenging length for me. I think I hit it, though, and managed a very satisfying story with a killer ending.

This weekend I’ll be in NYC for a whirlwind trip, arriving Friday evening and leaving on Sunday morning. I’m excited to know my story will be out in the world as I’m making my way back home! I hope you enjoy “The High Cost of Heat.”
