Word-Whore ~ Fox and Willow Thursday

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , , | Leave a comment
Fox & Willow will actually be updated later on today – but this link will always take you to the latest page, so check back in a little while (probably sometimes this evening.) In the meantime I’m over at Word Whores today, talking about books and series and just how long is too long? (Heh. *Is* there such a thing?? ) Also, just a heads up that the author chat/Shindig I was supposed to host with Sandy Williams last week on our book release date was rescheduled to tonight – 7 PM, EST. RSVP here! (I might be a few minutes late – turns out the boy sproglet had a field trip today and won’t be back until 6:30 or so and I have to pick him up at his school. I’ll be as fast as I can.) And gah! I’ve been forgetting to put my links to my blog… Read more

Battening Down

It’s a bit of a cluster today with Hurricane Sandy, so I’m just going to keep this short and sweet. First off, my Shindig author chat tomorrow night was cancelled due to the weather – it will be rescheduled at a later time.  (Probably next week.) I’m still trying to figure out if I’m going to be able to make it to Toronto on Wednesday – the storm should be over by then (at least where I am), but I suspect the airports are going to be an utter nightmare. Plus, LBI is currently taking a terrible beating right now – there’s a good chance we’re going to lose the beach house – it’s entirely probably I may be in NJ over the weekend instead to try to help salvage. Just not sure yet.  Check out LBI Source for some absolutely horrifying pictures of what the island is going through… Read more

Shelter From the Storm

Well, since the forecasters are basically making it sound the apocalypse is coming, figured I’d just mention where I’ll be over the next week or so, since who knows if I’ll have power after tomorrow. >_< So assuming all is zen with the electricity, here’s what’s going on: Saturday: 2:30 pm EST – online panel/chat at Coyote Con – The Good, The Bad, The Girly & The Manly – with me, Jeffe Kennedy, Carolyn Crane and Laura Bickle. It’s free, but you do need to register so you can log on to get into the chat. Tuesday – book release day! Huzzah! And I’m doing a live Shindig with Sandy Williams – bring your questions and webcam to join in the fun! 😀  It’s from 7 – 8PM, EST. Wed – Sun – I’ll be in Toronto for World Fantasy Con. I don’t know exactly what I’ll be doing each… Read more

Word Whore ~ Fox and Willow Thursday

Today started out with an utterly fabulous fuck-up on my part. Namely, I attempted to update a plug-in on the Sad Sausage Dogs website (you know  – you just click “Update” and you’re done, right? Sure. Unless the update is apparently some sort of massive overhaul that completely changed the database structure and destroys your entire website.) Yeah. I screamed. A bit.  (Actually, it was more of a muffled, “Oh, fuck me,” since I was in the office and that sort of thing is generally frowned upon. Anyway – turns out it there *was* a warning about the drastic nature of this upgrade, but I didn’t see it due to the way I way I went about it in WordPress. But after running over to  the plug-in website and seeing that the changes are irreversible and not to do the update unless you were sure about it and had a back… Read more

I’m working from home today, awaiting a vanity. Back in March and April the DH attempted to redo our bathroom himself…and actually did a fabulous job. We were all set to start working on the other bathrooms over the summer. Until the great shower debacle set things back. No, my shower still isn’t fixed. Yes, we’re going to hire a professional to do it. No, we’re not afraid of tackling a larger project…but time is becoming a bit of a factor, and essentially we’re going to have to rebuild the entire thing from scratch (walls, shower pan, new door, etc.), so we’re just going to toss some money at a professional. We’re still going to at least redo the kids bathroom ourselves though, hence me waiting for the vanity today. (“We’ll deliver it sometime between midnight and fuck up your whole day, ha ha!”) In the meantime, I’m trying to… Read more
