At the end of this week, I’ll be driving down to San Jose to attend PantheaCon. More specifically, I’ll be promoting my work in Women’s Voices in Magic and the writing/editing I do with Immanion Press/Megalithica. This is my first time attending this convention and I’m looking forward to meeting people and promoting my spirituality. If you’re attending PantheaCon, look me up. I’d love to chat and get together.

2009 has come and gone and I wanted to do a nice wrap up post on all that I accomplished. While I didn’t post goals I had for the year publicly, I did have a few of them. Click on the link below to read what I was able to track through the year.
I have a few cool things to announce this month. On a whim, I submitted Touched to a Young Adult Novel Discovery Contest offered by the Gotham Writers’ Workshop. The contest asks for the first 250 words and the title of your novel; but the grand prize gives the winner the opportunity to submit their manuscript to a YA literary agent and a free writing course. It was mostly a spur of the moment thing, but I have just as much of a shot any one else. They’ll announce winners in February 2010.
I received news today that the Women’s Voices in Magic anthology is now in print! Order a copy of the book online through either amazon.com or the publisher. Please note that Immanion’s US fulfillment team won’t have copies in hand until the latter half of December, but they’ll keep track of pending orders.
Haven’t snagged your copy of Ravens in the Library yet? It may already be too late!
Ravens in the Library will be going OUT OF PRINT this month. The current print run is the last. Thank you all so VERY much for helping us make RAVENS IN THE LIBRARY a success, helping Ms. Tucker and – in the process – creating and supporting a kick-ass collection. Thanks, folks!
Thanks to everyone who bought a copy, read the works inside and supported this endeavor. I’m glad to have been a part of the cause.
A few days ago, I got word from the editor that the next anthology to feature one of my essays went into final editing. The book layout is complete and soon it’ll be sent off to the printers soon. There’s no word on final publication date but I’m hoping it’ll be out before the end of 2009.
I wrote an essay that discusses my magical path and the road bumps I’ve encountered. I hope that it encourages pagans to continue working and keeping the faith even in those dark moments where it seems like nothing exists or goes right.
I was poking around on a website called Shelfari and found that they took pictures of Neil Gaiman’s library. Other author’s writing spaces and libraries fascinate me, so of course I gotta check out those images through to see what he keeps on his shelves.
I start clicking on the thumb nails to expand the images to their large size. That’s when I come across this:
Reviews of RAVENS keep trickling in. I’ve seen two more this week. One by LiveJournal user mavrick_weirdo and another by Jennifer Brozek. You should go visit their blogs and see what they had to say about the book.
In other news, s00j and Cathrynne Valente are here in Portland. They’re doing a Palimpsest Release Concert tonight at the Camellia Lounge, 510 NW 11th Ave, Portland, OR 97209 ($10 suggested donation; this venue is 21+ after 8pm). I think all Portlanders should go check it out. I know I am.
