My dear Father-in-law is at peace

I mentioned the past few days have been stressful, and they have been. I hadn’t wanted to mention specifics, as it’s not my story to tell. But yesterday my father-in-law passed, and here at the words my sweet husband posted on Facebook.

My father died today, after a long bout with Parkinson’s. I got the news that he was failing on our way back from Europe, and managed to get a flight in time to…

Brief post- I’m home

Brief post- I’m home

We are home from a lovely and yet tiring vacation in England and Ireland. We had an absolutely amazing time, worldcon was a lot of fun, and we’re (mostly) all home safe.

There are a lot of things I want to blog about, but they’re all very different. It’s been an avalance of awesome stuff and shit all at the same time. I could write a very long blog post about it, but that would be over 10k words,…

ISBW LonCon meetup - UPDATE

ISBW LonCon meetup – UPDATE

Hey folks- I have been having a lovely time in London and Dublin and am about ready to get back to the sorta real world with LonCon!

FIRST- the time has changed from Friday at 11 to Friday at 10am. I had a meeting pop up at 11, apologies. I still don’t know the convention area, so I’m winging it.

SECOND- Someone has asked, How is this different from your literary beer?Well, I’m doing it for a…

discussing the sexism in media is not equivalent to hating it. if I hated everything that was sexist, I’d literally never be able to watch tv or a movie or read comics or leave my house, basically.

Just remember: even if you can’t slay dragons and shoot fireballs from your hands, you can step over small objects in your path, and that makes you more badass than a lot of video game characters.

ISBW #330 – Amazon vs Hachette // Kirsty Logan Interview

I have a couple of horses in this Amazon vs Hachette race, and although I will admit I don’t fully understand all the details, I will say that I really dislike absolutes.

On a brighter note, we talk to Kirsty Logan!

ISBW LonCon Meetup?

Some people had asked about a LonCon meetup, and I figured I’d pick a time and date. Let’s say 11am, Friday morning. We can meet in the main convention center, I can make a note here or on Twitter of the exact place once I get a sense of the space. If you’re interested in meeting up, leave a comment, that will help me plan!

(Comments are moderated but I will see them all)

My LonCon Schedule

I can’t wait for LonCon this year- actually I can wait for it, would love to wait for it, only I have one week to run around like crazy and get ready for it and then we take off. Eeep.

Anyway. Once fun British touristy stuff is over, I will settle down in London and hit the WorldCon.

(You may note the regretable absence of a live reading- I had one, but it was scheduled for Monday, and we’re…
