  • 14:28 @tenebris It's Pumpkin Patch #1 from 2007. #
  • 14:51 Post con zombification in full effect. #
  • 15:42 Wait, so I can no longer blog on my own book pages on Amazon...(cont'd) #
  • 15:42 And blogs by Amazon employees having nothing to do with my books is supposed to replace that tool? Fuck off, Amazon. #
  • 16:14 Wish I knew more wirewrapping. I've these awesome beads from Elise & I'm not totally sure what to do w/them. Except give them to @kythryne. #
  • 16:26 Since what I WANT to do is make a #Fairyland necklace to wear while I'm writing it.The beads are perfect, if I could find a focal pendant... #
  • 16:27 But my skill is small. I can do a little. Could /probably/ figure out the basic make-beads-string-together-with-wire-loops thing. #
  • 16:35 @marianallen The best would be a bent spoon, for reasons which will be clear next week. But I don't think I have one. #
  • 16:36 @jimnduncan I hope so. I hope a press is interested, in either a full run or a limited edition. If not, I will do something myself I think. #
  • 16:39 What's your favorite water-element folkloric beastie? #
  • 16:43 @jimnduncan I want the necklace for me, for writing inspiration. I suppose I could auction it after it's all done, but... #
  • 17:02 How massively awesome is this? bit.ly/34gXj #
  • 18:11 Have asked on BPAL swap comm for any pumpkin-based scents to trade for books, imps, bottles. Anyone here want in? #
  • 18:14 @sihaya09 I have those, but thank you! #
  • 18:47 @alexandraerin @meilinmiranda This is the new world...more and more of us, I think, will do this. Also I <3 Thea Gilmore. #
  • 18:57 @alexandraerin I did. That's a bit harder with writers, not least because there's less audience than music, distro, etc But it's the future. #
  • 18:58 @alexandraerin And of course Gilmore is already a known quality. As I should know, it's easier that way. You're much more hardcore. #
  • 18:59 @meilinmiranda Link me to info about it? #
  • 20:00 Oh my god I just ate the biggest blueberry ever. Maine rules. #
  • 21:31 @saraphina_marie How? #
  • 23:16 @azhure Oh, thank you, love. How kind of you to say. #
  • 03:19 @amylikestodraw What would you want in trade? #
  • 03:20 Finished The Sparrow. Parts I thought were brilliant, parts weak. Definitely felt the end was rushed, deaths too easy, resolution a bit pat. #
  • 03:26 Also finding the lack of denouement in modern novels really upsetting these days. #

I just wanted to thank you all again for following Fairyland and donating. This has been and continues to be an extraordinary journey.

We're heading down to Portsmouth today for a job interview for justbeast . We'll see how it all goes.

In the meantime, I am not the only one using crowdfunded fiction to get by--check out alexandraerin and Tales of MU. It's a magical school highly unlike any you've read. She's been doing it a hell of a lot longer, and her stories just go on for days. She's also been an incredible mentor to me throughout this project, despite needing sponsorship of her own. That kind of generosity and rising-tide love is why our village is so wonderful.

Won a War at Age Thirteen

I'm terribly late in posting about this, but life got crazy there.

So, at Penguicon, earthenwood  gave me a little aluminum box with my name on it. The box is now a knitting supply case. What was inside it? A big pile of OMG.

It is a Casimira slave bracelet! Though it looks to me like a device to control wicked clockwork bugs. (For someone who is creeped by bugs in real life, I've sure walked into a lifetime of fantastically gorgeous bug gifts.)

earthenwood  is phenomenally talented. She makes the beads by hand, and beads are a large share of her work, but when she makes a whole piece she takes my breath away. The pleasant and powerful weight of this on my hand is quite addictive. I immediately start channeling Ms. Wicked Bug herself.

Seeing the worlds inside my head become real like this is a heart-stopping proposition. I'm never going to get used to it. Or stop being incredibly fucking humbled by the makers who touch their magical hands to my pages.
