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…

Appearance/signing at Barnes and Noble, Cary - Tomorrow!

Appearance/signing at Barnes and Noble, Cary – Tomorrow!

I wish I were good at blogging while on the road like John Scalzi. While I’m wishing, I’d like a pony, too. But since I’m crazy with the travel this month, I am negligent with posting my appearances.

Tomorrow night, I will be at the Cary, NC Barnes and Noble to talk Ghost Train to New Orleans and sign books, or iphones, or bags, or small children, whatever. If it stays still, I will sign it.

Mo…

41

Hullo 41.

Shhh. Can’t talk. Busy.

Um, 41? I’m here. I mean, a few days late, but I was busy traveling, there were teens, and ants, it was a whole thing. I know I should have greeted you last Friday, but I’m here now!

Look, I’m busy. I know you’re chronically late, but if you can’t bother to show up for your own birthday, then I have to shoulder the burden. Do you know what I have been dealing…

My return to Escape Artists

My return to Escape Artists

If you don’t listen reguarly to Escape Pod, you may not know that I have recently returned to Escape Artist’s staff as Editor at Large. What that means will become more clear in months ahead, I’m working on some behind the scenes stuff, and will take on some hosting duties on all of the EA shows (Escape Pod, Podcastle, Pseudopod).

I had to leave because when I was in grad school, something had to…

ISBW #328 – Taking Care of Yourself // Gail Carriger interview

This week we welcome Gail Carriger back to the show, and talk about taking care of yourself. Hint- it’s not romantic to treat yourself like crap in order to brag that you’re not sleeping or drinking too much in order to feel like a “real” writer.
