Back From Busy Weekend

Well, I’m back. I went to the Harlequin party and I’ll have a few pictures for you, but not tonight. We ended up in the car for at least an hour on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, so I’m pretty zonked. Fortunately, my writing brain is OK, so that what I’ve been doing since we got home.

Decadent Publishing launched today, a epublisher/print publisher I intend to keep an eye on. Their initial offering leans heavily toward the erotic, so nothing has tempted me to buy so far. Sunday seems like a strange day of the week to pick for a launch date, and they have more books coming out on the 3rd and the 6th.

Another ebook caught my eye last week and I wanted to make you aware of it too, because the author is a regular commenter on this blog. She never said a word! (Or maybe she did on my defunct (now replaced and functional) Debut Informer. If so, sorry Anna!) The book is Faerie Blood and the author is Angela Korra’ti — or Anna the Piper! I love this cover–the violin alone makes me want to buy it, plus the opening chapter is fun. Check it out!

This week, I’ll post a debut showcase that I’ve been accumulating, plus I might have an editorial-like post about things I’ve been ruminating over lately. I also will post my review of Mary Robinette Kowal’s Shades of Milk and Honey! So it might be a near-normal posting week.

My daughter watched Beauty and the Beast today once we got home (along with Mulan and Cinderella–normally she doesn’t watch three movies in one day, but I figured she was as zonked as I am) and I had an idea for Beast when I do my retelling for that story. It’s a take on the Beast that might be totally repugnant–truly beast-like. Not the furry creature from the movie. Something that would be REALLY hard to fall in love with. It might be fun enough to tempt me away from doing Snow White next.

So, how was your weekend? Anyone here go to RWA? Anyone here wish they had gone (here!)?

          1. Hee yeah but when my book dropped, you weren’t doing ebooks or micropresses like Drollerie. 😉 I WAS paying attention!

            Nonetheless, many thanks!

    Tia, I’m glad you had fun. I didn’t get to go to RWA this year (although I did spend a 3-day weekend doing camping/ren faire/beach things with friends), but next year in NYC for sure. See you there?
