Well DUH!

on April 30, 2012

Okay, so I’ll tell you why the protest felt like something of a failure.  It’s because the cause–and it’s a huge assed important cause, don’t get me wrong– it just feels so obvious.  I mean, it feels like one of those unspoken societal rules.  If I suddenly started running down the street screaming “For sweechrissakesyafuckin’morons… Read More

But I WANT to go to the protest!

on April 28, 2012

I don’t know if I do or not, actually– but I’m gonna make a good go of it!  Anyway– I’m going to see if I can write me a quick post and then go back to bed.  Exciting, I know, but if I want to go fly my freaky flag in downtown Sac this morning… Read More

Recovery Drinks

on April 25, 2012

Thanks, Rhys, for my kitty of ennui Oh, I only wish it was something fun like vodka or… I dunno.  Anything.  But, believe it or not, my husband’s fitness buff friends all seem to believe that the perfect recovery drink is chocolate milk.  And now you know. Anyway, for those of you who have been… Read More

And on Mondays I’m Amy

on April 22, 2012

Okay– this is a purely business post with a weird little anecdote at the end. Riptide has a policy of scheduling blog tours for their authors, and since it tends to sell books, I’m not going to argue.  On top of that, Chase in Shadow had a pretty good weekend over at Amara’s Place, and I thought… Read More

You Know It’s Spring When the Birds Won’t Shut the Fuck Up

on April 20, 2012

 For this blogpost ONLY, I’m gonna go work first, family second, because, hey, that’s TALKER up there, the anthology, with all three of the stories in it, and it’s going to be out in PAPERBACK in May, and… on Gods.  They’re beautiful.  That’s Tate and Brian, and the skimpy Sacrament Skyline, and pain and redemption… Read More

Big, Round Numbers, Redux

on April 17, 2012

Goodreads is having trouble with it’s feed right now, so I thought this would be a good time for this post. See, the thing is, about two years (give or take about four months) ago, I did a post called “Big, Round Numbers”– and I was sort of excited.  I was going to have 1,000… Read More

Grumpy Fairies, and No one can eat all the food.

on April 15, 2012

Okay– just a teeny little short post today. First of all, Rhys sent me This Link on Twitter, and I have been laughing my ass off over it all day.  Dude, you and your dog will never be closer.  But if you DON’T have a dog, this will make you NEVER want to get one, EVER.  Could… Read More

Some Stories about Stories

on April 12, 2012

 Okay– a business post.  Mostly.  I had some rambling, but it’s after 12, so I think I’ll save hat for another day. First of all, a reminder that Country Mouse is up for pre-sale at Riptide.  Now Riptide goes in for the pre-sales in a big way, they offer a very nice incentive to fork over your… Read More

There Was DUSTING.

on April 8, 2012

Okay– I’ll admit it.  I’ve been guilty of… of… HOUSECLEANING!   *scream*  *shudder* Forgive me.  I know, I know, my trademark is that I don’t give a royal housecleaning crap, but… well, I had to.  I’ve excavated the kitchen table TWICE in one week, and then?  And THEN?  I ORGANIZED. It was horrible– traumatic even…. Read More

Squish at Six

on April 4, 2012

So, uhm, putting together a child’s birthday party.  Not always easy. In this case, there were a couple of steps.  Step A, the requested visit to build-a-bear.  Mission accomplished.  Build-a-bear did us a solid this year, and produced a giant purple Hello Kitty with flowered feet… it’s like they had a direct line to her… Read More
