New stories on the way!

I’m very pleased to announce several new developments this week:
–I hope to soon be signing a contract for audiobook versions of the Praesidium trilogy
–A Christmas story of mine will be published in Silver Publishing’s holiday anthology in December
–Dreamspinner Press will be releasing my novel Venetian Masks in February or March

This is all in addition to a short story (“Tyler Wang Has a Ball”) I’ll be releasing with Dreamspinner next month and a novel (Brute) that will be coming out in December or January. So, plenty of opportunities coming up to get your Kim Fielding fix! 🙂

Life is a little hectic right now. I’m working on copyedits for a textbook and preparing for a trip to Europe in less than 2 weeks. I’ll be spending a few days in Paris, which I’ve never visited (aside from the airport), so I’m very excited about that. I’ll also be spending almost a week in Zagreb. I lived there for 5 months last year and I’ve been homesick for it, so I am really happy to have the chance for a visit.

I’ve got one kid sick at home today–allergies, I think–and another doing a school dance and sleepover tonight. I have a to-do list a mile long. Whew! I think I need a nap.


I’ve been grouchy this week about stupid tasks I’m stuck with at work. Sometimes being a grownup sucks. On the other hand:

  • no more math class
  • I don’t care if I’m one of the cool kids
  • I can stay up as late as I want
  • nobody can ground me

What things about being a grownup make you happy?
