    Upcoming Release: Happiness In Numbers Anthology (February 5)

    Guess who has a new novella releasing in less than two weeks? If you guessed both of us, then a gold star for you, my friend!

    Both Meredith & Aveline are super stoked to both be featured in Happiness in Numbers, a polyamorous short story anthology focused on family, releasing February 5, 2019 (edited by Nicole Field).

    If Wishes Were Fishes (Meredith Katz) (Read Excerpt)

    Poly, M/M/M, contemporary paranormal romance. A sequel to Empty Vessels, but can be read as a standalone! Featuring an anxious psychic, his ghost boyfriend, and their deer-antlered lover, If Wishes Were Fishes is a story about family and learning when to let go of the past… and also trying to get along with your immortal boyfriend’s grown-ass kid and a son-in-law that’s trapped as a fish.

    Heart and Parcel (Aveline Reynard) (Read Excerpt)

    Poly, F/F, M/F, F/NB, high fantasy. A scatterbrained witch, a put-upon demon crow familiar, a non-binary elf bodyguard with fantastic biceps, and a strong-minded princess. Priorities: figure out this relationship shit, stop keeping so many damn secrets, and save the country from an attempted coup.

    Please consider adding to your Goodreads to-read list or pre-ordering from Less Than Three Press! Additional purchasing options will become available after the release on February 5, 2019.

    Young Avengers Comics Reading Guide

    I love comics, but if any other industry made itself as hard to find a chronological order of events, it would be a miracle for that industry to survive. 

    I’m doing a reread of the Young Avengers comics (which won the GLAAD award in 2006 and again in 2014), and it’s pretty typically difficult. For example, if you search “Young Avengers 2” on Amazon, you get 8 different results, which are all from different arcs and with no indication of chronology, etc. Yikes.

    So, while I’m rereading and reviewing, I thought I would create a guide to show a. the reading order and b. what each option contains, so you can mix and match based on preference and cost. I also give my opinion on if it’s important to read as part of following what’s up with the Young Avengers team.

When his higher-ups send in a handsome TV psychic, he’s as annoyed by the possibility of a con man playing with the hearts of the victims as he is attracted to the stranger. But Lee Tyack has true sight, and between his psychic visions and Gideon’s knowledge of the town and its inhabitants, maybe they’ll solve the crime—and solve Gideon’s loneliness, as well.
