Yes, I Am Off Social Media

I am currently restructuring my life in a multitude of ways. Off with anything that doesn’t move me in the direction I would like to see and am working in. Part of this entails new ventures and a revamping of this space as a writing resource. I have much in the works and look forward to sharing it with you. It’s a long process. While I have professionals aiding me, I am largely learning as I go along so as to maintain control and have the ability to bring my many dreams to fruition–so, yeah, trust and value the experts, but never fear having to learn, never fear what you have to do to build your tool box. In an age where everything changes and updates on an hourly basis, the only true experts of anything are people who keep learning and moving–experts in learning. I hope everyone is as well as one can be. Times are dark but there are many kind people fighting against this–don’t let the soulsucks rob you of this and any peace or enjoyment you are able to carve out. Much Love, N

P.S. Vote progressive.

Hello Hello!

I took an amazing planning course last December which many people have asked about. Registration just opened. One of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. And I will seriously take anything Heart Breathings offers. In fact, in July there will be a beta round on Self Publishing so I will be able to tell you all about that pretty soon too. In any case, you can click here to check out the planning course. Much love to everyone! ❤

Russian Translation Just Released!

Hey everyone! Darker Magazine has just released their translation of my short story “Terror in the House of Broken Belles” and it’s my first work to have been translated so that’s pretty cool! You can find it here. Have an awesome day!!!

Oh My Gosh, So Sorry!

I just realized when I posted most recently, a rando ad was part of the notification I got in my email. It had been so long since I posted that WordPress changed the way they did ads. In any case, I upgraded my account so no more rando ads. If I ever choose to do ads it will be for things I actually use, support, or love. Also, on a changes note, I aim to post more and not necessarily about my writing. Thank you for being here. Cheers, Nikki

Story News

Very soon I will be able to announce the release date for the round robin novel The Leaves of a Necronomicon (Chaosium Press) which includes my chapter “11:00”! Yay!

I wish I had more news but this is very exciting as it’s been years since the initial project launched. Sometimes things just happen that way. Actually, the last few years have been pretty trying for me as personally I’ve had a very sick family member require most of my time and energy but things are on the upswing and I very much look forward to all sorts of weird things in the name of entertainment. Hope everyone has an awesome week.

Cheers, Nikki

HP Lovecraft Film Festival!!!

Hey everyone! The Kickstarter for special swag and tickets is live for the festival. Some of the packages contain a special limited edition souvenir book called The Challenge From Beyond. Each year a handful of writers are asked to participate in this round robin book. This year I am one of those authors AND IT IS JUICY!!! So get on it before it’s over! 13 days as of today! You can find the Kickstarter page for that HERE. I had a lot of fun with this. Bet you can guess which section I did! Bwahahahaha! I will be at the festival so feel free to pull me over and say hi and if you want my ugly hearts scrawled all over its pages, I will be happy to oblige.

Also, I want to encourage you to pair this festival with the most recent Nick Mamatas novel I Am Providence. I do believe it would compliment and extend your beautiful HPLFF experience. It can be found at Barnes & Noble but it’s super inexpensive at Amazon last time I checked. Link for that bit of awesomeness is HERE.

Many thanks to the warm and welcoming HPLFF crowd and crew. WE MAKE ALL THE AWESOMES HAPPEN TOGETHER! xoxox N







Radiocast on Women Writing Horror

Hey there! I recently was a guest on World of Ink. We discuss all sorts of interesting things. Session is archived and you can reach it here. Was loads of fun. Will be doing more radio for sure!

Cheers, N

Gamut Magazine Kickstarter Live

Hello everyone! I’m helping launch a really cool magazine called Gamut Magazine. You can find the campaign here. It’s right up my alley and, if you’re following along with me, it’s right up your alley too. Topnotch talent has already signed on (including muah!). Anyhow, I hope you’ll give it a gander. You know how I’m always trying to test and expand the boundaries of any genre I write in–Gamut it pretty much about this. In any case, the writing will be amazing. To boot, if you sign up at the annual subscription through Kickstarter you’ll get it for $30/yr for as long as you renew (rather than the $60/yr). I really really REALLY hope this campaign succeeds so please do whatever you can to help make this happen–even if it’s just sharing the campaign. Loads of love to you. xo N
