Absolutely safe for work

For those of you who mutter about the fact that all my stories have sex in them, I’m delighted to report that you can now order Retro Spec: Tales of Fantasy and Nostalgia, which contains my fantasy (not erotica, fantasy) story “The Devil Went Down to the Sunset Strip.”

It’s funny. It’s about hair metal bands. What’s not to love?

Just ask the damn question!

The very charming Lisabet Sarai hosted me today at her blog, in which I answer The Question Nobody Asks (But I Wish They Would!).

Can you resist going there and leaving a comment? If you can, don’t tell me, for it will make me weep. Otherwise, see you there!

I saw her today at the reception

Would anyone local like to go to the Writers and Illustrators of the Future Contests awards ceremony and reception on Saturday, August 28? Lots of big-name SFF writers will be there. Did I mention it’s free?

Ken will be out of town so I need a ride and a date.  :-)

There’s also a book signing in Pasadena the next day, although I don’t have details about that as yet.

Pop me an e-mail if you're interested!

A peek inside my brain

Projects I have worked on today (in no particular order):
  • continued "quick" read-through of What Beck’ning Ghost (originally completed in 1993 to refresh memory of romantic arc so I can tweak the proposal before sending it out
  • phone confab with artist I’ve offered to manage, followed up by an e-mail and some research
  • e-mail confab with friend who’s in LA this coming weekend; we’re picking her up from LAX on Friday, spending the day with her and maybe hitting a museum, etc.
  • changed hotel reservation for Crown Tournament this weekend (from just Saturday to Friday and Saturday); updated Best Western Rewards Club membership
  • made packing list for Crown Tournament and noted things I need to do in preparation for meetings with people there
  • back-and-forth phone and e-mail confabs with multiple people about buying Styx tickets tomorrow morning
  • phone call to the gentleman making a pair of objets d’art (of a sort) for us—received good news!
  • many varied e-mails about writing stuff and goodness knows what else
  • watered Eostre (with Morgana's able assistance)
  • pondered flights for September (Plattsburgh) and October (Oregon, Florida)
  • other things I've no doubt already forgotten
Popcorn kittens, anyone?!
