I used to watch the hell out of the movie the post title is from. Nerd nostalgia points if you recognize it.
As you can probably guess by my lack of updatery after the middle of the month, though I had my nose to the grindstone I “lost” NaNoWriMo. Which is, y’know, okay since I dig what I accomplished, and not breaknecking through the month means Ghost Town will be a better book for it. Sometimes you need to stop writing and thinky-face, and that’s a perfectly acceptable part of the process.
Provided your butt returns to your chair.
I’ll be cleaning house around here some in the coming weeks. I need to look all shiny and professional now, since the galleys of Night Owls have this site’s address on them.
GALLEYS. OF MY BOOK. TANGIBLE. OMG.
Related to that, if you are what NetGalley considers a Professional Reader (bookseller, librarian, reviewer, book blogger), you can request a digital review copy of Night Owls here. If you’re a bookseller or other industry type who uses Edelweiss, you can request one here.
If you’d like to pre-order a copy for your very own to love and cherish forever, have some links!
Since people might end up here through the magic of the internet and ARCs and stuff, I’ll be cleaning up links, organizing things better, and finding us a shiny new theme, since this one (Brunelleschi, uh, 2011?) does some of the things I dig but not all — I like a three-column view, but everything gets a bit squished toward the middle because it’s a fixed-width thing. If you have a favorite three-column, adjustable-width wordpress theme you’d like to recommend, drop it in the comments, pretty please?
Housekeeping listy type stuff:
- Ghost Town — progress bar is currently to your right on the sidebar. Due by the end of the year, pub in early 2015. A preview of a darling I hope won’t have to be murdered:
Chaz eyed them. Dirt caked their shoes, streaked their knees and elbows. Val had leaves in her hair. “You guys are filthy. What were you doing?”
They exchanged a glance. “Hiding a body,” said Val.
“Hiding two bodies,” said Cavale.
“Right. Two bodies.”
- Adrift — as of right now, it’s still slated for me to return to in January. This was my Viable Paradise submission, and the story is still sticking with me. I might even outline the plot.
- Once Ghost Town is finished, I’ll get to thinking about the next book in the series. I think Sunny and Lia have some stories to tell. Book three might be theirs.
- “The Desert in Fimbulwinter”
- ““The Reunion Tour of Billy James and the Flamethrowers, or How Billy Got the Band Back Together”
- Possibly post-Adrift, unless Miriam wants it sooner, a changeling story I’ve been noodling. Not quite sure if it’d be urban fantasy or not, or whether it’d be adult or YA. We’ll see!
- Some form of collaboration with Hill. Be afraid (no be afraid. It might be a scary horror book.)
I’ll be attending Arisia and Boskone in January/February. If you’re going to be there, say hello!
