Good news you might have gotten elsewhere [May. 8th, 2014|07:24 am]

1. I sold a story, “A House of Gold and Steel,” to Beneath Ceaseless Skies. It’s not actually very much like “Minnie the Moocher,” although that’s where the title comes from. When I announced this on shorter social media, I linked to Cab Calloway singing in Blues Brothers, which is classic, but I also always do get Stephen Fry in my head saying, “Yes, His Majesty King Gustav does seem to have been extraordinarily generous with the young lady, sir.” But really, His Majesty King Gustav is Sir Not Appearing In This Story.

2. Tim’s Kickstarter funded! If you’re interested, there’s still time to back it and get yourself a lovely photo book, or the related cards, prints, etc. This is a thing that will definitely happen now–he’s completed all the photos, the Kickstarting is for the cost of printing etc.–and as Kev said in another social medium, it is a lovely bandwagon to jump on. Mostly I am pleased that it funded before the last minute. You may not have known this about me, but I am not the least anxious person ever, and knowing that this very cool project will actually exist in the world has been a very happy relief for me.

3. It’s raining. I like rain. I like rain almost as well as snow, and everybody else is a great deal less grumpy than if it was snowing today, so hurrah rain.

1. Congratulations! I think "A Diamond Car" would also make a good story title.

2. This is also awesome news!

3. I'm not quite so fond of rain as I was when I was a child (when I knew that rain meant there wasn't a chance my parents would make me go outside and play when I didn't want to), but I am rather glad for it today, as it means I won't need to water the garden today. (Or, to be more precise, the place where the garden would be if the seeds would stop being so lazy and sprout already.)
