Word Whore ~ Fox and Willow Thursday

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , , | Leave a comment
Yeah, I know I’ve been pretty bad the last few weeks with the blogging. Lots going on in real life – additional surgeries to plan,  diagnoses to deal with, AC units to install…it’s been a rather lopsided time. (I’m taking a mini vacation this weekend to go visit Danielle though – just two gals and their laptops and comfort food for a few days. Really looking forward to it, frankly. I’m 90k into this first draft – still slower than I’d like, but I’m plugging away at it. Hoping to some good writing hours in on the train tomorrow. I just want to finish it so I can start ripping it apart.) As an aside note, the panel at Awesomecon DC went pretty well. (Shout out and thanks to Alma Katsu for giving me the heads up and inviting me along…and giving me a ride back to the metro afterwards.)… Read more

Carniepunk Teaser

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , | Leave a comment
So I’ve been reading through one of the Carniepunk arcs and I have to mention just how excited I am to have been included in this particular anthology. There’s some fabulous stuff in here – I don’t think anyone is going to be disappointed. 🙂 (On the flip side, I have to admit to feeling a tad intimidated that *my* story is in here. There’s always that odd little ripple of wondering if it’s really good enough? I suppose that might sound odd, but writer insecurity, I guess.) Anyway, thought I’d talk a little bit about the story – there may be some spoilers ahead, so you’re warned! Even though it technically is set in Abby’s world…it’s really a Melanie story. I know some people have wondered about certain things over the last few books – how Abby and Mel’s relationship was started, why Melanie and Brystion appear to have… Read more

Awesome Con DC update

Just a quick note to mention that the panel at AwesomeCon is now official. 🙂 Here’s the scoop: April 21, 12 PM: Room 102A – Writing Fantasy: Novels and Comics In publishing today, fantasy is a crowded field that encompasses the supernatural and paranormal, high fantasy and more science fiction-ish elements such as time travel and alternate realities. Join novelists and comics writers to learn what both publishers and fans expect from writers today. Justic Jordan, Allison Pang, Diana Peterfreund, Meagan Spooner and Alma Katsu. There will be a signing after that (tho I’m not sure if it’s in the same room yet or if it will be somewhere else.) I won’t be selling any books, but I may give a few copies away. Should be a good time, so come on down and join us! In other news, I should have a few Carniepunk ARCs in my hands next… Read more

Just a quick post to mention that it looks like I’m probably going to be attending AwesomeCon on April 20-21. It’s a smaller con from what I can gather, so I’m not sure what to expect, but small cons can be more fun than the larger ones in some ways. (I was NOT fond of being stepped on at NYCC last year – definitely a crazy time!) It looks pretty inexpensive, so if you’re in the area think about stopping by!  (I’ll post more details about the panel once I know them, but I think it will probably be early afternoon on Saturday.) Hope to see you there!… Read more
