In Which There Is the Sale of a Tale, and I Wave My Arms and Flail

If you follow me on twitter, where I seem to do most of my talking, you might be aware that I recently sold my very first solo novella to Riptide Publishing.  In Discretion is set in the Ylendrian Empire, in a place that might be familiar to people who read The Slipstream Con– Station 43.

It’s a charming tale of biological disaster, unfinished business, and that awkward moment when you run into your ex, all during a mysterious outbreak on a space station at the ass-end of the ‘verse.  The cover is coming soon (COME TO ME, PRETTY), and it will be released on December 30, 2013.

Which segues nicely into the next point of order- Peripheral People.  The sharp-eyed amongst you may have noticed at one point that the next Ylendrian novel, Peripheral People, was originally listed with an August 2013 release date.  Counting on my fingers, even I can clearly arrive at the conclusion that August has been and gone, and yet… no Peripheral.

The strangest part of the writing business is how your books sort of disappear into a void at some point.  Either there’s nothing happening with them, or, in many cases, there’s something incredibly exciting happening with them, and you can’t talk about it.  (Insert your own Fight Club joke, please.)  That’s very much the case with Peripheral People.  The book is sold, and will be released in 2014, but beyond that we really can’t say anything else yet.  Except that what’s going on with it, lost in that weird black hole of publishing, is pretty phenomenal.

Rest assured, we’ve got lots of work coming down the pike.  In fact, I think Michelle is going to be very busy in a couple weeks, introducing you to some new characters of hers, in a little town called– you know, I think I’ll wait and let her tell you.

Peace, love, and endless edits,


New Name, now with 33% More Reesa* (*than products which contain 33% less Reesa)

Just a quick note to explain some of the housekeeping taking place on our various sites at the moment.  Remember when Panic! at the Disco lost their ! for an album? I’ve lost my “S.”, mostly because nobody can spell my name anyway, and I figured it was easier to knock a letter and some punctuation out of the equation and hope for the best.

Well, also because I haven’t gone by my given name with any frequency since I was about 14, so clinging to a name I don’t particularly care for in enigmatic initial form seemed kind of silly.  I don’t think there are a lot of other Reesa Herberth’s writing science fiction or romance at the moment, in any case.

Other site work you may have noticed- updated release dates, completed progress metres (with new stories to come!), and a link to the very cool professional organization we belong to, Broad Universe.

There’s more to come in the next few days.  Lots of announcements, both mysterious and absolute, not to mention news about Michelle’s blog tour for her upcoming release, “If Wishes Were Coffee”. (Which you can pre-order, at a discount no less, right now!)

Guest Blogging at All Romance ebooks – Bisexuality in Fiction

I’m guest blogging about the “B” in LGBT (or QUILTBAG, but that wasn’t the theme they gave me) on the ARe Cafe Blog today.  Come check it out, and comment on your favourite Bi/Pan/Omni-sexual characters and books!

Wanna see something pretty?



I love it!  It captures the whimsical, sweet nature of the story perfectly.  So excited to be working with LT3 and London.

“If Wishes Were Coffee”

Less Than Three Press will be publishing “If Wishes Were Coffee”!


I wrote it for their submission call If you’re reading this but the story took off on it’s own and strayed a bit away from the guidelines.  But imagine my huge beaming smile when they contracted it as a stand-alone short story!  Just completed first round edits and cover art request and I have a release date of September 18.  Yaaaaay!


The story takes place in my perfect, imaginary little town of Playa Escondida in northern Florida.  I’m thinking I’ll be visiting there again in the not-too-distant future.  I mean, there’s a haunted stretch of beach resulting from the wreck of a Spanish galleon in the 1600s, and that has to get into a story somewhere, somehow!


This story has a wee connection with “Enchanted Grounds” (Dreamspinner Press) in that there’s some sibling cross-over.  What can I say, I have a thing for coffee shops and magic!
