I’ll be at the Bmore Bookfest again this year, though this time it’s in November (1-3), not September! Alas, no sunshine. But also: ooh, no heatstroke! For more details, check out the website. I’ll be at the SFWA table, along with awesome folks like Jeffrey Ford, Andy Duncan, K.M. Szpara, Sarah Pinsker, Justina Ireland, and … More Baltimore Book Festival!
Starting September 26, I’m teaching a Creative Writing 101 course at the Irish Arts Center in Manhattan! We’re going to sharpen your craft skills. Or, perhaps, your gift of the blarney. Because what is fiction but tall tales, polished up to look respectable?
August in New York: no one is looking forward to it except for me. Because I’m reading at the KGB Fantastic Fiction series on August 21! Come hang out. Drink beers. Listen to stories. Have fun!

Amnesty comes out in less than five weeks, and my calendar is already filling up. I’ll be up and down the eastern sea board, and while I couldn’t fit in an event in Louisville, I’ll be swinging through and signing a load of books at Carmichael’s for you to purchase at your leisure (they’ll probably … More Where I Will Be!
Hey! You! Yeah, you! Do you need a reason to snap up a copy of Amberlough? Or maybe you have a friend on the fence about whether to buy it. Good news: it’s less than a cup of (fancy) coffee all through the month of March! So get it while it’s hot, and then grab … More $2.99 Amberlough Kindle Deal
Hi friends! As some of you may know (if you’re on the ol’ Patreon) I do a lot of scribbling in the artistic way, not just the fiction way. It’s always been a part of my creative process, and I’m very excited to share it with people not just as an “I did this in … More Lara Elena Donnelly’s Store | Society6
Applications are open through March 10 for the Alpha SF/F/H/Workshop for Young Writers. I attended Alpha at 17, and I can say with confidence I wouldn’t be here on this website with my novel cover on the header if I hadn’t spent that week and a half immersed in the craft of fiction, meeting people … More Apply – Alpha, the Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror Workshop for Young Writers
