Short Story in Audio, Other Things

I have a short story up at Podcastle, "Thorns" read by C.S.E. Cooney. It was originally in Realms of Fantasy in 1995, and was the first short story I ever had published: http://podcastle.org/2013/09/25/podcastle-279-thorns/

* There was an interview with me about Razor's Edge at Geek Mom

* And Entertainment Weekly posted a book trailer for Razor's Edge: Shelf Life - EW.com (yes, I didn't know that was going to happen and it's pretty freaking exciting.)

* And there was another excerpt on IO9

* And I'm in this SF Signal Mind Meld: What Authors Influenced Today’s YA Writers When They Were Young?

We tried to watch Agents of SHIELD last night but the DVR kept re-booting during it, and we also had trouble trying to watch our recording of Sleepy Hollow. I am terrified the same thing will happen in the middle of Broadchurch tonight. I also made a pseudo-Moroccan chicken stew and it was delicious. And we had a chocolate cake.

New Books

* Soul of Fire by Laura Anne Gilman
This is the second in the duology with Heart of Briar: Three months ago Jan learned that elves were real, our world wasn't safe and it was up to her to save her boyfriend—and the world—from being englamoured into slavery. Now Jan has a new deadline—ten weeks, ten days and ten hours. That's when the truce she arranged between our world and the elves' realm ends, and the invasion starts.

* Untold (Book 2 of the Lynburn Legacy) by Sarah Rees Brennan
In this second book in the Lynburn Legacy, the sorcerous roots of Sorry-in-the-Vale have been exposed. No one in the town is safe, and a decision must be made: pay the sorcerers' blood sacrifice, or fight. Will the townspeople (magical and not) become "owned" by the sorcerers who believe it is their right to rule? If Kami Glass has anything to say about it, evil will not win. Despite having given up her own piece of magic, she is determined to do everything she can to make a difference. And whether they want to or not, her circle of friends (and potential boyfriends) will not be able to help but go along with her unusual tactics.

* Stonecast by Anton Strout
Alexandra Belarus was an artist stuck working in her New York family’s business…until she discovered her true legacy—a deep and ancient magic. Lexi became the last practicing Spellmason, with the power to breathe life into stone. And as her powers awoke, so did her family’s most faithful protector: a gargoyle named Stanis. But when a centuries-old evil threatened her family and her city, Stanis sacrificed himself to save everything Lexi held dear.

My eyes were immediately drawn to chocolate cake...
Shame your DVR kept crapping out on you, I myself forgot it was coming on and forgot to record it, so I didn't get to see any of it.

Anyway, glad to see the book is getting a lot of attention! That trailer is awesome.

You didn't miss much. SHIELD was pretty dull. Big disappointment from Joss Whedon.

Yeah, it fell a bit flat for me.
