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’.

Website Updated. Mostly. Finally.

It took me far longer than it was meant to but the website is finally updated enough that I can open it up to the public once more. Some of the art isn't done yet and neither is the MVP Award page, but everything else should be finished and working as intended. I...

Call for Submissions: Water

Water is the most yielding of all elements, changing to fit its container, whether that be a thimble or a lake bed. At the same time, anyone who has ever watched the unrelenting progression of a tsunami understands its raw power. It is the tranquil azure of a tropical...

Ch-ch-ch-changes!

With this new website comes a slightly new blogging strategy. Mostly, I won't be doing it here. Mostly I'll be doing it on Patreon. *gasp* I know! Trust me, this is something I've given a lot of thought to because moving the bulk of my blog content over to a platform...
