LOOKIT ME BACK DOWN TO ONE WEEK!
I SEE THE WEB’s serial run is over, alas, but that’s okay because now I get to give it all to you in omnibus form! I’ve been working on formatting the ebook and crafting a brand spankin’ new cover that I revealed on Twitter and Facebook yesterday. You can see it below in lieu of an Instagram-of-the-week. 😀 Look for the ebook to be available on Smashwords this Tuesday!
Thanks to a comment from an old friend and RP partner, my NA paranormal MIRANDA has evolved into a loosely-associated trio of novels. I’ve taken inspiration from Mina Loy, the only poet aside from Edgar Allan Poe I’m inclined to call a favorite, and her poem “Letters of the Unliving.” I won’t say too much more about it here because I’ve been tagged in the Writing Process Blog Hop, so in the next week or two you’ll get to hear me talk lots about that!
I finished Remote. It was not nearly as in-depth as I wanted it to be, but it did give me some good new ideas! I’d recommend if if you need a quick primer on the benefits of remote work.
I’m going to go and pick three books from my Goodreads list and see if I can put a hold on them at the library. I have GOT to start working through that monster before it buries me alive.
I was asked this week to be the keynote speaker at my alma mater’s induction ceremony for Sigma Tau Delta, the International English Honors Society. Alas, it is on the East Coast and I am on the West, so I wasn’t able to be there in person; but I did write a statement for them to read in my absence. I repped the genre fiction all the way:
The work you do in this major and as members of Sigma Tau Delta is part of a cycle that affects all books, from The Goldfinch to Divergent. It’s telling that everyone is jealous of our Fantasy Lit and Young Adult Lit classes. Literary studies isn’t only for the dead white male canon and it’s not only for the NPR bestseller list. All fiction begs to be examined, because it all deals with that topic we simply cannot get enough of: the human experience.
