The Hot Mic - Happy Valentine's Day (ish) - Issue #12

Feb 14, 2022: Ok so this is written on Valentine's Day, but it really doesn't have much to do with love or any of that gushy stuff. I had to see the dentist this morning so my day didn't start very romantically. But hey, No Cavity Club (although they don't le…


The Hot Mic - It's Kind of Working - Issue #11

When we think of our favorite media being turned into something else (ie, that a book will become a show or movie), a lot of us internalize that we want exactly what happened in the original medium to occur again, just in a new medium. I've been guilty of thi…


The Hot Mic - Issue #10 - 2021 Is Buried

2021 was rough as I struggled through various issues with editing. In talking to some friends at WorldCon I think I've identified the issues, and hope I can move forward with some confidence. So it's been a long time coming, but here is the cover for my novel…

The Hot Mic - Mur Lafferty's Weekly Newsletter - Issue #6

I don't know if it's depression, ADHD, or my personality just simply IS this way, but there are some moments in life which create an emotional response in me that elicits vast loneliness. For I am the only person to have felt such intense emotion.(insert Davi…


The Hot Mic - Mur Lafferty's Weekly Newsletter - Issue #5

Every once in a while a premise so weird will come along that you wonder "who thought that would be a good idea?" and "I must play this" at the same time. Take Hatoful Boyfriend, the game where you, a human girl, go to school with and date birds....but then t…


The Hot Mic - Mur Lafferty's Weekly Newsletter - Issue #4

Station Eternity is going out to blurbers. I am of course nervous as hell, partly because I'm an author and partly because I interviewed an expert about something and need to change some parts on the next edit round. And since it's in copyedit stage, I have t…


The Hot Mic - Mur Lafferty's Weekly Newsletter - Issue #3

I did a poll of Patreon supporters asking what they would like to see added to my rewards tier. The overwhelming winner was unexpectedly a watch party that discusses writing style. I'm not sure how I will set that up, but I will figure something out.
