The hubs is away for the weekend–my MIL had minor surgery this morning (she’s fine) so he’s off to spend a few days with her, helping her out. And I assume he will help, although the temptation to whine about being bored and try to force her to get up and take him shopping–as she did to me, two days after my doctor cut me open and pulled a live human being out of me–will, I imagine, be very strong. At least it would be for me, which is why it’s probably a good idea I didn’t go along.
So I’m a little lonely, and a little distracted, so here’s some links and interesting things.
Ellora’s Cave is planning on doing its very own reader con, fall 2009 in Akron, Ohio (where they’re headquartered.) Before you leap to ask (haha), yes, I do really hope to go. If all goes well (keep your fingers crossed for me!) we will be back in the States by then, and I think it sounds like a lot of fun. I just really enjoy cons and events, and can’t wait to get back to the States so I can fill my schedule with them! If you are a reader and would be interested in going too, please email EC–they’re trying to figure out how big a space they’d need, etc.–at conventions AT ellorascave DOT com. You’re not obligating yourself or confirming anything by emailing, it’s simply for pre-planning. So please do drop a line if this sounds fun to you.
Also this weekend, my fellow Deliciously Naughty Writers and I are having a chat day at the EC chat loop, so come say hi there too! There will be (as always) excerpts galore–I may even be persuaded to share some from my next EC release (date TBD) Accustomed to His Fangs, the vampire My Fair Lady spoof that should start editing soon.
Oh, and Urban Fantasy Land is back!! I’m totally excited about this because I love the blog. AND, they’re looking for contributors–reviewers, people to do little articles, whatever. If you’re interested, email them–the address is on the UFL blog.
