Links and Updates and Things

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , , , , | Leave a comment
So it occurs to me that I’ve been rather lax in updating my website with a few key things. First off – I’m over at SF Signal’s Mind Meld today, weighing in about Faerie (along with several other fabulous authors, including Seanan McGuire and Julie Kagawa) – so go check it out! Also, if I haven’t mentioned it before, I’ve got a set of signed Abby Sinclair books (and trading cards) up for auction at the Brenda Novak Online Auction for Diabetes, so if you are interested in donating to a great cause, please check that out as well. And the hard copy version of Womanthology Space is available for pre-order too – if you were unable to get a copy of Issue #5 and wanted to read my story, The Wind in Her Hair – you can find it here. So I guess the only thing left to talk about… Read more

Strong Women in UF

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , , | Leave a comment
I’m over at SF Signal’s Mind Meld today, weighing in on the whole “strong women in UF” trope that is fairly prevalent in much of today’s UF books. Heh – it’s actually sort of funny, because when I set out to write A Brush of Darkness, I deliberately tried to avoid the whole “kick-ass lady in leather” concept – which is why Abby isn’t a slayer of any sort and why she’s so physically damaged. Not that there’s anything wrong with the books that have kick-ass ladies in them – I’d just read so many of those book recently that I didn’t really want to write one, if that makes any sense. As to the picture? That’s a shot of my piggy bank from when I was a child. With my dad selling the old house, I’ve now got a plethora of Really Old Stuff hanging around my house (which I will… Read more

Word-Whore ~ Fox and Willow Thursday

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , , , , | Leave a comment
This is one of those days where I feel like all I’m going to do is post links about where I am. >_< First off – my post at Word-Whores is about superstitious characters this week. (And why I don’t seem to have any.) New Fox & Willow up today – page 50, if you can believe that! Blog Tour stuff: Read an excerpt from A Trace of Moonlight over at Urban Fantasy Investigations (What’s it like to come back from the dead and realize your Dreaming Heart is destroyed? Abby finds out in this little section…) Review and Giveaway over at Confessions from Romaholics. I *think* that’s it for today! 😀… Read more

Word-Whores: Guest Post on Writing Advice

Posted in blog | Tagged , , | Leave a comment
Okay – this should be my final week for needing a guest blogger to take over the reins for my posts over at Word Whores. This week it’s been all about good and bad reading advice – and it’s been great to see  how the more things change…the more things stay the same. (As in – everyone seems to get so much of the same sorts of advice, but really, it’s up to the *writer* to decide how much of it is useful. Like everything else, I suppose. Sort through the details, ignore what isn’t helpful and take the rest as you can. My guest poster is Tonia Laird – who is an up-and-coming writer over at Bioware (ha ha, my dream job, right? Game writing, FTW!) In the meantime, I’m plugging away on my revisions, as usual. Technically they are due tomorrow, but my back pain went crazy the… Read more

Word Whore Thursday

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , | Leave a comment
I’ve actually pulled in another guest poster for my normal weekly Word Whore blog. (And there will be another one next week as well.) I was lamenting that fact a bit last night because this week’s topic was foreign TV shows and I would have loved to talk about anime…but the deadline continues to loom and I have to streamline my time. (And I totally screwed up this weekend – I was supposed to have done my monthly League of Reluctant Adults post on Saturday and completely forgot.) Anyway, in the meantime, have a shiny – this is a sketchcard done by Aimo for the winner of the sketchcard contest Jeffe held for me on her blog during A Sliver of Shadow’s release week. (Such pretty colors!!) (There’s another shiny coming, but I can’t post it yet because the person doesn’t know about it. Ha ha.)  … Read more
