Folks have told me that my East Van lesbian werewolf romance, “The Cage,” made the Locus Recommended Reading list for 2010–I haven’t confirmed this with my eyeballs, but I hear that M.K. Hobson and Cat Rambo are on it too. Anyway, it was nice to hear and I want to cyber-hug all my friends and acquaintances who also made the list. (And, really, all my other friends and acquaintances too.)
In other news, Indigo Springs and “The Cage” are both available in an electronic bookstore called Diesel. I’m not sure how this works, formatwise, but they can be had. And they are both in the Sony Ebookstore now, too. iTunes is supposed to have them, but continues to lag behind.
It’s boggling, really, how many things have just become ours for the clicking.
Edited to add: The list is up again, here.
Signal boosting: one of my former students, Ashley Nissler, has a flash piece up at Vestal Review, called “Lungs Once Pink and Fragile.”
It’s possible that somewhere out there is a person who doesn’t know that I have insane true love for Quantum Leap. And so did my dead cat, Buddha. If that’s you, and you want to know more, go here.
Hey, Kindlers, look what’s just hit the virtual bookshelves… or, rather, what will hit the bookshelves on February 1st! As far as I can tell, the story is not yet in the iTunes store, but it is supposed to be coming.
Writing this story, and having it get such a positive reception from so many readers, was one of the real treats of 2010 for me. If you’ve read “The Cage”, or you end up reading it, I hope it was good for you too.
I have not been very bloggy of late–I am not awash in new photos, and the things that have been taking up my days aren’t, largely, worth sharing. I do have a third post about TV and homophobia up at TOR.com, in the form of a rewatch article about Running for Honor. This turned out to be some funky timing, what with the Senate repealing Don’t ask, Don’t tell this week.
I figure most of you will be taken up with holiday activities for the next few days, as will I. Rather than get into anything long here, I will just wish you all a happy one. As for me, my plan is to get back on the blogging horse slowly through what remains of December. I have an article about the word “look” and its various writing abuses in the offing, for example, but I will probably save it for Monday.
