I feel like I'm forgetting something. I'm sure I'll remember it as soon as I post this.

I added another old story to my web site. It's Archeology 101, a short SG-1 story which was written for Stargate Magazine #8, in 2006.

Katie Cowden, who is doing my new author photo, posted this film noir style photo of me for her 52 Mondays project.

That is a fantastic shot of you :D

Yes, wonderful shot, I love it!

Thanks! I was really happy with how it turned out. :)

Cute noir photo is cute and noir!!!!!!!!!! *G*

I love the shot :) And the typewriter really adds to the atmosphere of the noir style.

That seems like kind of a bad move on Glee's part to release a cover of a cover. Especially since they didn't give any credit to Jonathan Coulton.

Thanks!

Apparently this isn't the first time Glee has done this, either.

You should use this pic as your author photo!

have you tried advertising your backlist with Project Wonderful? They are mostly on webcomics, with SF series like Girl Genius, Gunnerkrigg Court, and Order of the Stick getting strong results, and there is a lot of fannish overlap. I've seen cons, games of all sorts, costuming and crafts, AND ebooks being advertised as well as other comics.

I've bought several that way, though most of them have suffered from the usual self-published without-benefit-of-editor flaws, but my experience with Project Wonderful is that it is a great way to reach an interested audience that is hungry for MOAR STUFF TO READ RITE NAO! and the costs can be quite reasonable, if one is careful in setting a budget.
