I first created this website in 2006, and in the fourteen years between then and when I’m writing this now it just kept getting slower and slower. Even moving to dedicated hosting didn’t help very much. So, in April 2020 I blew it all up to start over. As part of that process I’ve begun doing most of my blogging over at Patreon. Thus, you can find all of that right here –> Rhonda Parrish’s Patreon.

Not only can you read many of the posts there without being a paid patron (including all the Calls for Submissions and important updates) if you click the ‘follow’ button on that page it will email you whenever I post a public update as well.

Also, even though I blew up the old blog that was here I wasn’t willing to lose fourteen years worth of work.

Luckily for me, my friend BD Wilson knows a thing or two about this kind of stuff and was willing to help me out. BD archived the old blog for me, so if you’re looking for something that was posted pre-April 2020 your best bet is going to be to check here –> RhondaParrish.com Blog Archive

Really important updates like book releases will also be blogged here as ‘Important announcements’.

Important Announcements

2021 Book Releases

2021 is going to be a weird year for me because I have a lot of books coming out. Like, even more than usual. I'm actually concerned about this -- I mean, it's a good problem to have, but it's also a real problem. I don't want to burn out readers or reviewers or have...

G is for Ghosts

I am super excited to announce the latest title in the Alphabets Anthology series. This newest volume: G is for Ghosts will be available on October 5, 2021. Like with each title in this anthology series it contains twenty-six stories, one for each letter in the...

One in the Hand

It all started with a premade cover. It's kind of funny how frequently the backstories of my books begin that way these days. But it did all start with a premade cover -- a whole series of them, actually. By BZN Studio Covers. I had to have them. Even though they were...

Final installment of Arcana artwork

Last week I started this series of blog posts to share the interior art which I commissioned for Arcana and today I'm excited to conclude that series with this post. I hope you've followed along and enjoyed the artwork by Marge Simon and the excerpts from all the...

Penultimate Arcana Art Post

Last week I started this series of blog posts to share the interior art which I commissioned for Arcana and today I'm excited to continue that series with this, the penultimate post. I've included excerpts of the stories as well as the artwork and I hope you'll enjoy...

Six more Arcana illustrations & excerpts

On Tuesday I told you about how Arcana was kinda sorta my first anthology ever. And then yesterday I shared the artwork and excerpts from the first five pieces (four stories and a poem). Today I would like to share some more artwork and excerpts with you, but there...

Some Arcana Artwork

From the very beginning I knew I wanted interior illustrations to go in Arcana. It didn't even really feel like an option to do otherwise? How could you have tarot card-inspired stories without including artwork? It just wouldn't work. So I turned to Marge Simon to...

Introducing you to Arcana

It was some years ago that I first considered dipping my toe into the world of anthologies. Like, really trying it out. I’d done a couple print versions of Niteblade (which you could argue were anthologies but were mostly print versions of Niteblade) but I had an idea...

Aurora Nominations

For years and years one of my goals has been to make it onto the ballot for the Aurora Award. The Aurora Award, for those who aren't aware, is "Canada’s annual English-language Science Fiction and Fantasy Awards" (I nicked that off their webpage). Much like with some...

One in the Hand & Magic and Mystery

It seemed like a good idea at the time? I mean, I stand by my decisions, but it does mean that this announcement is going to be a little bit more complicated than it would have been otherwise. What am I talking about? This!Still confused? Sorry, stay with me... I did...

A Letter To My Editor

I have had the pleasure of editing the last four books in the Marie Jenner Mystery Series by E.C. Bell. Which is probably why, when I asked her if she'd like to borrow my blog to talk about the latest release she decided to write her blog post in the format of a...
