My friend annathepiper does NOT have cancer! While it still looked like she might, she put her awesome book is on sale for $2.99, and the sale's good through the end of January. If you like paranormal romance, stories with faerie lore, unusual collisions of fae and African-American cultures, and stories with gloriously geeky software-tester kickass heroines, you will like Faerie Blood. Plus, the naming magic starts out deceptively conventional, only to take a movingly quirky twist later on.
The Rugosa book is still on track to go out to its publisher by Saturday. Sunday, I'm bringing a completely new short story nobody else has seen at all to a meeting of my critique group. It's possible to finish things. Nice to know.
I wrote a longish post for Black Gate about Stephen King's On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft. (No, Pagan readers, not that capital-C Craft.) It's a delightful book, which surprised me the first time I picked it up, because I'm usually allergic to horror. There's a nice comment thread going over there with suggestions for Stephen King books that show King at his Kingliest, but that aren't actually horror. Go weigh in, if you like.
