Here are some random awesome things:
Chicory has a blog! She’s just getting started, so go over there and say hi! Fill up her follower box!
I got an email about a shared galaxy called Galaxiki. It’s this wiki where you can buy a planetary system and populate it with your own lifeforms. Here is an example of a system that has been edited. It looks pretty cool–quite a geeky time waster!
I now have almost 300 Twitter followers! (Sorry. I think it is awesome.) And while I’m self-promoting, I have thirteen reviews at Amazon (average rating 4.5!). AND, over 100 people have added my book to their GoodReads shelves, with 31 reviews/ratings so far!
John Ottinger, owner of the awesome Grasping for the Wind, has guest-edited a science fiction magazine! Residential Aliens–or ResAliens–#4 is his issue, and he has provided me a sample copy to review!
I learned about a great word tool on GalleyCat–Visuwords! It is so awesome–beyond words. A souped-up web 2.0 thesaurus–plus much more. Just try it! The only thing it doesn’t do is rhyme!
But without question, here is the most awesome thing:
What is it? A RomVets patch! What is RomVets? It’s the “homepage of military women who’ve turned the sword into a pen.” Or, romance writers who are veterans. Who knew such a group existed! I thought it would be fun to join, but I was floored when Merline Lovelace–excuse, me, Colonel Merline Lovelace (I’d better salute!) wanted to send me my squadron patch and pin.
I learned about RomVets through the awesome Kimber An, who awesomely featured me (again) on her blog when she recognized veteran authors. Huzzah, Kimber!
And I was JUST saying to my husband that I needed to get a leather biker vest to put all my military patches on, a la the Freedom Riders. What do you think of this one?
And that’s my little post ‘o awesome for today. May something awesome happen to you today!
