They/them, forty-something, southeastern U.S.

I've been writing since I was a child and posting stories on various free fiction websites since 2007. Since 2013, I've been selling ebooks; Smashwords pays its authors better than Amazon, and itch.io is hard to compare, but seems to be in the same ballpark as Amazon.

My new short fiction collection, _Gender Panic and Other Stories_ contains 253,777 words of transgender fiction: seven short stories, seven novelettes, one novella, and two short novels.  Six of the stories (including both novels), 163,290 words, have never appeared online before.

I've finally gotten around to adding a cover for "The Mural and the Cabinet", a couple of years after it was posted.  Maybe sometime in the next couple of years I'll make a cover for "Pioneers," who knows?

TrismegistusShandy · Author · Jun 28, 2023

"A Girl, a House and a Secret" is finished.  "Gender Panic," a story about a child choosing their gender and body type in a future where there are many possible choices, will start serializing on the evening of July 10 (EDT) and run for five weeks.  "Wings" will continue to post on Wednesday evenings until September 20.

TrismegistusShandy · Author · Jun 28, 2023

I have four other stories scheduled to serialize after "Wings", plus four stories completed in first, or second draft that need one  or more additional drafts before I can schedule them to appear on Scribblehub.

TrismegistusShandy · Author · Jun 3, 2023

Originally there was a "vore" content warning on "Wings."  That referred to a brief scene in chapter 61, which won't be posted until September 14.  (And didn't involve Lauren directly, but anyway.)  After some discussion with a friend, I decided to edit that out, and I've edited the content warnings on "Wings" accordingly. If that was the only thing stopping you from reading it, enjoy.

My new short story, "Carpet-Bound," is available from itch.io in epub and pdf formats. But you can get more stories for your money by buying it as part of the Secret Trans Writing Lair Mermay Bundle, with eight mermaid and summer-themed stories by trans authors for $8.

The third book in the Launuru and Kazmina series, "Like Bees in Springtime," is available in epub format from Smashwords and in Kindle format from Amazon. I’ve reduced all the books in the series, "Wine Can’t be Pressed Into Grapes" and "When Wasps Make Honey," and the spin-off in the same setting with different characters, "A Notional Treason," to zero on Smashwords and $0.99 on Kindle.

I’ve been charging money for this series for a decade, but as my understanding of gender and sexuality has matured, I’ve felt vaguely guilty about making money off of books that I no longer feel quite right about. There is a lot to like about the earlier books, but the first one especially has enough comphet and gender essentialism baked into the plot and worldbuilding that I don’t really want to charge money for it anymore. Amazon wouldn't let me set the prices to $0.

I've just scheduled my novella "Listening to Jekyllase" for publication from September 2023 to January 2024 (after "Wings" is finished serializing).

TrismegistusShandy · Author · Feb 11, 2023

My new novel, "The Translator in Spite of Themself," is available in epub format from Smashwords and in epub, mobi, and pdf formats from itch.io.

I just realized I messed up somehow with the itch.io release; I know I uploaded the files, but somehow they weren't there and I got an email from itch saying "your project has no files", and I uploaded them again.  Hopefully they'll stick this time.

Thanks for the follow Tris!

My new 22k-word novella, "Smart House AI in Another World", is available now as epub and pdf from itch.io.  It will appear on Scribblehub in a few months; I'm not sure when yet.

I have a spooky new novelette, "A Girl, a House and a Secret", available in epub and pdf formats from itch.io. You can buy it by itself, but you'd get more value for your money by buying it as part of the Secret Transfic Autumn Anthology ebook bundle.
