Cheers and grins,
Yes, I know, I owe you all the infamous Strawberry Pic, not to mention my long-delayed con reports. I meant to post them too. But there was a slight change in the schedule at Samhain's Fantasy & Enchantment Blog. I found myself up at bat today instead of next week, and to be quite honest, I went a little bats. Well, it wasn't just bats. There were wolves and bears and dragons, oh my! My contribution is an overview of shapeshifters in popular culture from ancient times to the present day. Nothing like keeping things simple--and of course this is nothing like keeping it simple. LOL
Next time I promise to try to keep it under a thousand words. And yes, there probably will be a next time. Under the new schedule, I'm slated to blog the second and fourth Tuesday of every month. Be afraid. Be very afraid. Mwahahahaha!
Very briefly--to remind everyone it's Thursday Thirteen over at the Fantasy & Enchantment Blog. Today it's fantasy names, and as a bonus, you'll find introductions to writers Dayna Hart and Melissa Lopez.
Yeah, I need to become a more active presence on F&E, but I'm trying to finish Highway from Hell and get it to the betas next week, and I'm crashing and burning on some copyediting jobs for Samhain. With Jana Oliver (Sojourn), I'm also prepping a program for a high school in Richmond next week on history in sf and fantasy--two hours of unfettered access to all those young and pliant minds. Mwahahahahaha! Should be a great talk. We plan to cover everything from Blood Ties to The X-Files, with a few kitchen sinks thrown in for good measure.
Will post more when I catch my breath. Meanwhile, hope you're enjoying the return to more spring-like temps.
