So you've probably noticed that the blog is looking a little different! I know it's not as swirly and girly and pretty as the old one, but it IS a lot easier for me to manage. Sadly, sometimes practical >>> Swirly Prettiness. This hurts me in my soul, bu there you have it. One of my resolutions for this year is to try to streamline some of my online stuff, and this jazzy new blog is the first step! So feel free to explore, and click links, or search for stuff or whatever!
Also, in the interest of streamlining, let's have a little list action, shall we? I'll limit it to 5 things, 4 of which are Writing Business Related, and one that is Totes Random (As Is My Wont).
1) So last night was a VERY happy night for me, not only because after MUCH CAR DRAMA, I had finally arrived safely back in Auburn (seriously. I'm not even getting into it because Car Drama is, like, my least favorite thing in the world. Even writing about it now is giving me the dry heaves. Blech), but ALSO because THESE CAME LAST NIGHT:
Yup. That is a BOX FULL OF DEMONGLASSES! And they are GORGEOUS! In fact, I hate to pick favorites, but I think this one MIGHT even be prettier than HEX HALL. Or that could just be my rampant pyromania speaking. In any case, they're lovely, and I can't wait for each and every one of you to have one for yourselves! :)
2)Speaking of DEMONGLASS, did y'all know we are only, like 6 weeks away from it hitting stores? That is MIND-BLOWING to me! This time last year, I was curled into a little ball of neuroses, waiting for HEX HALL to come out. This year, I've been so busy writing/editing/Doing Various Other Business-y Things that I haven't even had TIME to go CRAZY-PANTS yet! Maybe I'll have a DELAYED CRAZY PANTS MOMENT in the middle of tour. That would be fun.
3)And now speaking of TOUR, YES, I will be flying around this fine country if ours yet again the first 2 weeks of March. This time, I'll have a traveling buddy in the delightful Sarwat Chadda. His book, DEVIL'S KISS, is about a modern-day Templar who fights demons. It's full of swords and Awesome, so I'm REALLY excited to be doing this tour with him! Team Demon FTW! I'll be posting date/stops soon!
4)And in my last little bit of Self-Promo, HEX HALL comes out in paperback January 25! Or maybe February 1! Amazon has said both. In any case, it is SOON. In addition to being inexpensive and wee and adorable, the HEX HALL paperbacks also have not one, but TWO chapters from DEMONGLASS in them. Huzzah!
5)Even though the whole car trouble thing sucked and blew like whoa, I DID get to see The Mama this weekend, so that was win. And while I was there, I snapped a picture of her backyard. Now, seriously, seeing this, can there be ANY DOUBT that The Mama truly is Magic?
Also, bear in mind, this was taken in JANUARY. I am never leaving the South...
Okay, that's it for now! BUT...try to stop back by on Friday, because oh, Mes Anges. Remember that WTF Friday post I did a few years back? Well, I have a new WTF Friday for you. And it is a DOOZY.
See you then!
