I read Chuck’s books and blog all of the time, so it was really an honor to crash his blog. Swing by while I share Five Things I Learned While Writing Nameless: The Darkness Comes, including an orange marmalade recipe.
Also, Erica Kiefer and I will be signing our books this Saturday at the Rainbow Promenade Barnes and Noble on Rainbow and Lake Mead. The signing begins at 1:00 pm, so stop by if you’re in the area! If you read this, be sure to ask me about the triple chocolate chip cookies. I’ll have a candy bowl for the general public, but I promised the girls I’d bring some cookies. They’ll be hidden away, if you’d like one.
Shhhh. Secret cookies.
Or something like that.
But I would totally help you with your dishes if I could. 🙂
Gardner Goldsmith was kind enough to invite me onto his show last night. I’ve known G for about five years now, and he’s just the nicest of the nice. Here’s a link to the podcast if you’d like to take a listen.
Thank you for sticking around during this rather hectic but really fun blog tour! I promise things will slow down soon, and we’ll have a chance to chat again. I can’t wait to show you the pictures of my bedroom wall all nicely glittered. 🙂
Have a wonderful day, friends!
I’m delighted that the Fantasy and SciFi Lovin’ News and Reviews site are willing to host me for the 10th stop on the Beautiful Sorrows blog tour! They allowed me to write a guest post on one of my favorite subjects: Women in Horror. Please stop by and read my take titled Women in Horror: Are You a Good Witch or a Bad Witch?
Thanks you, and enjoy!
My friends, I am so excited and delighted to have my guest post “Success Is Like Lightning” running live on the very cool Booklife Now website! Come! Read! And a very happy announcement will be coming soon! Eeee!
Can I say that again? Eeeee!
The extremely wonderful and talented Damien Walters Grintalis has invited me to guest post on her blog to celebrate February, which is Women in Horror month. Damien is a regular at the Shock Totem flash fiction contest, and she has placed pretty much every time. Her work is stunning, her personality is warm and mysterious, and she’s just absolutely a pleasure. Damien’s debut novel INK will be published in December 2012 by Samheim Horror.
Stop by, say hi to Damien, and read what I have to say about women in horror.
“Your First Hate Mail: How Life Can Change After Working For a Magazine” has gone live at The Fictorian Era. Go! Read it! Support them! But first, let me tell you about our little literary meet-cute.
So I was at World Fantasy Con in October. Besides geeking out over some of my favorite authors, I was also scouring the joint for Sean Markey. Now I have never met Sean, but we’ve tweeted back and forth and I was hoping to track him and his wife down for some conversation. Mercedes was on the hunt. On the prowl. Beware.
Apparently I’m a super sucky prowler. I never did find Sean (I’ll get you next time, Gadget!) but I did run into Matthew Jones. I actually turned around, eyed him, compared him with the tiny little Twitter avatar in my mind and said, “Your name doesn’t happen to be Sean, does it?”
Slow blink. “No. Hi.”
Matt is charming, adorable, and fierce. But he also has a heart of gold and, thankfully, a wallet, which is what I needed because I was ONE DOLLAR SHORT of buying a signed copy of Peter S. Beagle’s The Last Unicorn graphic novel, which was sold out not only at WFC, but at every comic book store in the county. I know this, because my Illiterati sister billie the girl called all of the comic stores for me. (This is yet another reason why my writing group rocks.)
So Matt gave me a dollar. I gave him a hug or promised him my soul or some such thing, and Bill and Peggy Wu from William Wu Books gave me their copy of The Last Unicorn. I was feeling the love. And that is the story of how I began stalking Peter S. Beagle, Matt, Bill and Peggy, but no longer Sean Markey.
Er, I mean, that’s the story of how this guest post came to be.
Happy 2012, everyone!
Jami Gold graciously listened to me prattle on about how cool Twitter is, and I have writing pals on Twitter, and by the way, I SCORED MY AGENT THROUGH TWITTER, and then she asked me to write a guest post about it. Which I did. Won’t you come and read it? Pretty please?
Also, today is the last day for September’s #10bythen! Go team! 😀
