A lovely gift arrived in today’s mail, even though it’s not my birthday.
I’ve already pre-ordered at Mysterious Galaxy, but want an inscribed copy, so I’d have had to wait until Chris and Amber sign there much later in the month. Now I have a copy to read ahead of time. ::g::
I <3 my enabler friends.
A bit of synchronicity:
I was reading some of my rss feeds today via bloglines and discovered a mention of an author advance survey by Tobias S. Buckell. The post wasn’t anything new, but I liked his style so decided to link up his blog to my feeds.
A post from earlier today mentions alg‘s LJ and recommendation re: a book. Now, she doesn’t know this, but I met her a couple of years ago at an MWA symposium. We both were wearing the exact same style of glasses. At the time, I hadn’t yet sold Matters to a publisher and was hoping to submit to her. For one reason or another, it never happened, and Matters was sold to a different publisher.
I’ve just friended her, because, dude, her interests include Callum! and she thinks Claudia Black is tres hot, which, yeah.
Back when I saw her presentation at the MWA event, I couldn’t get over how much she reminded me of me when I was younger (attitude and a bit in the looks, but she’s much cuter). I’m thinking that her being a Callum fan just cements it. ::g::
Like I always say, small freakin’ world.
