I Made You a Blooper-Reel

It’s a big day! It’s September, which means autumn should be here soon (please please please I long for sweaters and the entire state not being on fire), I have a new short story (a silly dragon one) up over at Turtleduck Press (which you can read here!), and I finally got my latest SkillShare class uploaded and published!

I always forget how long editing the videos takes. I never seem to remember that part. Some day. Maybe.

Probably not.

Anyway, the class in on genre: what it is, how it’s determined, examples of lots of different things. It’s here, if you have a SkillShare membership. I decided to do another theory class since the premise vs. plot is by far my best performing one (over finding and keeping track of story ideas and setting and reaching writing goals). We’ll see!

Anyway, while I was editing, I noticed that I make weird faces and stuff when I mess up, so I made a blooper reel. It’s just the video parts, not the slide parts, but enjoy!

We’re off to a promising start! Keep your fingers crossed that things continue in the same vein.

Release Party Aftermath (and a Video)

So, the¬†Necro-Om-Nom-Nom-Icon¬†release party on Saturday was interesting! It was held in a combo coffee shop/bar (I don’t know about where you live, but here in the Mile High City and surrounding areas, we’ll combine a coffee shop with anything. Or a bar with anything. Really, it was inevitable.) which we took over most of and confused the general patrons.

They had a toast (I promptly spilled my champagne on myself, very embarrassing, would not recommend) and did some readings, and we all signed each other’s copies and also copies from the general public. And my sister showed up and brought me an alpaca, which she got me after I expressed jealousy over the one she got the smaller, mobile one for Easter.

ALPACAS

(Mine’s the purple one.)

One of the other authors did interviews with everyone. Here’s mine, where you can see me fail at reading as well as try to spell Cthulhu on the fly, and the whole series is here.

All in all, it was interesting, though a bit stressful, because while I knew some of the other authors, I didn’t know anybody particularly well. One of the publishers told me that they’ll be doing a second one closer to home soon, and I’m not sure whether or not I’ll go. (Though it will probably depend on schedule more than anything.)

Still no buy links on the anthology, but I hear we’ll have them soon.

How’s your April going, squiders?
