Hi darlins. General update post, plus a snippet of my RL, which was just funny this week. Paradise in a few more days, I'm working it up for you now:)
Let's see, I'm submitting a story to a charity anthology Storm Moon Press is putting out for Lambda Legal. I've got a story titled The Solstice Gift coming out in a Total E-Bound anthology in December, focusing on Oberon's court and the Winter Fae. I'm very proud of that one, it's got some pretty interesting world-building, plus, TEB is awesome enough to give me my own cover, even though the story is part of an anthology. View, and feel yourself flutter:
I'll snippet you again as we get closer to the release date.
I'm also going to be doing a serial story project with Storm Moon Press. The title is up in the air, but it's going to consist of sex episodes of everywhere from 10-20k words, with a new episode being posted every month. The episodes will be fairly self-contained but will build on each other up to the finale. This is going to start in January, and getting a handle on the writing will be my NaNoWriMo this year.
And now, RL hilarity! My man and I went to watch the Colorado Arm Wrestling State Championship at McCarthy's Sports Bar and Grill yesterday, and it was awesome. Only two women competed, but there were men of every height, weight, and arm preference. Two of Damian's scientist friends took championships in their weight classes, and we duly cheered them on. It was pretty fun.
The competitors take this pretty seriously. That's a specially made table with elbow rests and pegs for the opposite hand to hold onto in the pic. There's all sorts of strategy and things like top-rolling and hooking, and then there's the bondage version, where the ref ties the competitors together because they can't stop moving their hands trying to get an advantage with grip. Gotta say, that part was my favorite.
Happy Sunday, darlins.
