It’s only a matter of time …

… before Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer will be trying to get into this guy’s parties … bring bribery cab sav and larcenous brioche … and those little circles of black bread with a schmeer of cream cheese and the world’s thinnest slice of smoke salmon on top with only an anorexic caper to keep it company.

Trent Jamieson cracks me up. Not only is he an awesome writer of note, he also has made this.

He also has a hat with a green band, a Book Corner and a new book, Managing Death.

Year of the Novel – Trent Jamieson

El Trento aka The Nicest Man In Spec-Fic (he of Death Most Definite) is teaching a second YoN class at QWC. I’ve been one of his students in the first round and it’s been enormously helpful in getting my “stuff” together and structuring the novel and also for general learning of craft stuff. Highly recommended.

Steven de Selby has a hangover. Bright lights, loud noise, and lots of exercise are the last thing he wants. But that’s exactly what he gets

Good Lord, Where Have I Been?

Struggling, I think.

The deadline to get Brain’s and my pieces in for Steampunk Reloaded was so tight … how tight? It was like trying to shoehorn an elephant into a narrow-fitting stiletto.
