Last night I went to my friend Kat Richardson‘s book release event for her new novel Vanished. The reading was really great — well attended, and a whole lot of fun. I recommend nabbing that book … or well, heck, the whole series really. May as well start at the beginning.
Speaking of the University of Washington Bookstore (I did. Just now. That’s where the reading was held.) … things have finally firmed up for my next event there. On November 4, at 7:00 p.m., you’ll find me at this grand establishment in the very fine company of Jeff VanderMeer and Cat Rambo. (Don’t worry. I’ll post a reminder closer to the event.)
I’ll be shilling Boneshaker, of course. And talking steampunk. And generally being tickled pink.
By the way, if you if you click that-there link above, you’ll see that Amazon finally has Boneshaker‘s cover image and flap copy up, and the listing looks like a real live page from which one could preorder the book, if one were so inclined. I’m just sayin’.
In other news, as you know Bob, I’ll be attending DragonCon next month and I, for one, cannot wait! Already I’m gathering gear and contemplating dress-up wear, whilst pondering how best to warp the space-time continuum in order to get all this stuff to Atlanta without checking any bags.
I don’t have my final schedule pinned down yet, but it looks like you’ll find me on the dark fantasy track as well as the alternate-history/steampunk track, so it is to be hoped that I’ll be a very busy girl all weekend — parties and old friends and costumes aside.
Anyway, that’s all I’ve got for now, folks … except possibly this video of Spain the Cat, since such videos are so popular. Today’s installment features the fat little monster lounging on the bed, refusing to vacate it … until she is lovingly pestered into submission. Enjoy!
