Geek Girl Con or Bust

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , | Leave a comment
So in a nice last minute bit of awesomesauce, I’m going to be attending Geek Girl Con in Seattle in October. 🙂 However, I’m strictly going as an attendee, so no panels or anything like that – though I hope to hand out Fox & Willow/Abby Sinclair swag. If you’re going to be there, let me know! I’m really excited about it, since it will be a great chance to network with different groups of people and sit in on some panels covering industry topics that I’m rather passionate about. Hope to meet you there! 🙂… Read more

Winter Storms and Character Cameos

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , , , , , , | 5 Comments
“…as people prepare for the chilly temperatures and pounding snow of Winter Storm Ion…” I flipped off the TV with a sigh, sinking deeper beneath the blanket. “Must be nice to have a storm named after you.” I yawned, curling into a tighter ball on the sofa. Outside, the wind rattled the windowpanes, a sliver of icy air creeping over the exposed skin at the nape of my neck. The incubus in question let out a disgruntled snort. “I would hardly refer to anything I do as ‘chilly’.” He paused, mouth quirking up at me. “They got the pounding part right, anyway.” Phin cocked an eye at us from where he sprawled in front of the TV. “I’ve got a storm for you. Right here in my pants.” “You’re not wearing pants,” I pointed out. “That’s pretty much the point,” he agreed, stretching out obscenely on his back. ~~ random Abby… Read more

Lego Con, Part 1

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , | 1 Comment
Okay – so here’s the thing – I spent several hours on Saturday in my version of paradise – namely a Lego convention. (I’m sure some of you don’t get it. That’s okay. There was a film crew there doing a documentary, so I suppose it’s possible I was caught on camera somewhere…) Anyway – took a ton of pictures – so I’m uploading a bunch of them now and then I’ll sift through the DH’s camera and see if I can find any that aren’t repeats. Some of the pics are a little blurry and some just don’t capture the sheer amount of detail in them, so you’ll just have to take my word on how freaking incredible they were. (And OMG – some are nostalgic in the extreme. My brother *had* all those old school space ones and we used to play with them for hours.) Keep an… Read more

Tuesday Morning Shiny

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , , , , , | 2 Comments
Since Carniepunk is coming out in a few months (July 23rd!), I decided to have Darchala draw me out a lovely scene from my story, A Duet with Darkness. (It’s not an exact match as far as the story goes, but it’s freaking awesome and I love it. So there.  Plus Dar got the livestream working and I was able to watch her work.) We wavered a bit on a title and finally decided on “Pride and a Fall” – though the working title was “No More Pride, Little Bird”  – honestly I couldn’t decide between the two. But we’ve got Melanie there with the red hair and the rainbow socks…and her sin-eater fallen angel paramour Nobu. *sighs* I may look at turning it into a print if there’s interest. Also, it looks like Carniepunk is going to be released in audiobook format as well. This tickles me silly, though… Read more

Cover Shenanigans

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , , | 13 Comments
I was actually all ready to write up a post today about how writers are an awful lot like hedgehogs. With pictures. Alas, Tumbleweed is being rather uncooperative for the camera, so that’s going to have to wait for another day. But that doesn’t matter, because last night this lovely image was posted! And I love it! (I supplied the fishnets, in fact – you can read more about it here.) In truth though, it feels very full circle to me. I got a lot of shit about this cover when BoD came out. For a debut author, it can be a bit harsh to read comments from readers about how they would never read/buy this book because of the cover. Some people said they would be embarrassed to be seen with it. That’s pretty hard to deal with, particularly because most authors have no control over their covers and… Read more
