New on my Patreon
With everything else going on, it’s a fun challenge to remember to update my Patreon and come up with things to say. I’m trying to keep it varied enough to appeal to writers, editors, readers, and gamers.
Today I posted the second installment on a series about my novel Aether’s Pawn and the real-world places that served as inspiration for the book.
A look at one of my favorite UK villages, and how it inspired my novel. Now available on my Patreon from the $3 tier and up. (With bonus cat.)
New Patreon Post: Writing Sequels
Here’s a new public post up on my Patreon. Did you know I have a Patreon? That’s where most of my posts go these days. You can check out this one for free, and maybe consider subscribing for more writing, gaming, crafting, and cats. Tiers start at $3.
I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be returning to the GenCon Writers Symposium in 2023. Come and see me on panels and in workshops, and maybe for a game or two!
More details to come once my schedule is finalized. If you’d like to meet up, my contact info is on the front page of this site.
See you this summer?
I can’t tell you about the project I just turned in, but I can talk about my previous project. And I would love to, because I’m very proud of it!
A small interview feature on me and my adventure is up on Yawning Portal, the D&D Adventurers League blog. Read a little about the background of RMH-11: Calling Upon the Dead at https://yawningportal.dnd.wizards.com/blog/ravenloft-mist-hunters-designer-interview-gabrielle-harbowy/. And enjoy that art!

You can now read my story “The Dybbuk Ward” at FANTASY MAGAZINE. There is also an author spotlight, and an audio version of the story. Enjoy!
A Title Appears From the Mists…
My D&D Adventurers League Ravenloft adventure has been released with its official title, which means I can now share its official title. Presenting… “Calling Upon the Dead,” in which
“a séance among friends new and old leads the investigation somewhere deeper and darker than ever before. Conjuring the restless spirits of slain adventurers, you rely on them to guide you to the next piece of the puzzle.”
Sale: Fantasy Magazine!
I’m excited to announce that I’ve made my first pro magazine sale, with the story “The Dybbuk Ward” to FANTASY MAGAZINE. It will publish in the March 2022 issue, available online or by subscription.
This is a very personal own-voices story about mental illness, Judaism, and unfinished business. I’m eager to share it with you, and grateful to FANTASY for picking it up.
Check out their current issue for other excellent stories.
Aether’s Pawn available for preorder now!
I started my career as an editor at Dragon Moon Press, and I’m thrilled to be returning there as an author. It means a lot to me, to be reprinting my first novel (formerly HELLMAW: OF THE ESSENCE) with my first publisher.
Gwen Gades of Dragon Moon Press designed this gorgeous new cover, and Tamsyn Muir’s blurb has me over the moon!
The e-book is available for preorder now at Amazon (which apparently doesn’t want to let you preorder a hardcover), and the print edition will be on sale there and at other vendors starting February 28, 2022.
This has been a long and wonderful journey, and if you notice from the “Book 1” up there, it’s not over. I invite you to come along with me, and Quills, for a hell of a ride.
