So Italy is a thing that's about to happen, apparently. Yay!

I'm sure I'll update from there. Probably on my stupid fucking iPad so it'll take forever and be a mess like my India entries. B says it's gonna rain the whole time we're there. Guess who doesn't care? Yyyyyup!

I got a new camera (finally) and a thingie to hook it up to my iPad and B and I seem to finally be done with our two weeks of arguing. So I guess this is cool. Now we just gotta fly to Zurich, then to Milan, then take a train to Florence. All without speaking any more Italian than, "Where's the bathroom" and "fuck off"! Yay!

But hey, it MUST be a good sign that the place we're staying is the Fiorenza B&B, right?

We're not supposed to say this, but you all know it's true anyhow, so I will. My favorite child! It lives!

Happy release day, boys.

I am so fucking sick. I don't know what's up with my stomach lately. I mean, I expected some pain after the holidays, but I swear to god I'm becoming so fucking delicate in my old age. WTF. Plus my head hurts and I'm achey --

So actually, I'm pretty sure I have the flu or something.

Oh well. I have Kasabian tickets for March 20. If anyone wants to go, I got an extra!

Also, Theo has a theme song.

Jesus. How convenient that they're one of Malory's favorite bands...

Sorry. I just. I mean. I always thought of Paul Banks when I wrote about Dart's looks. But THAT PICTURE OH MY GOD.

ETA: Non tumblr-stretched version here!

My inner Becca just went a little weak-kneed. Then went back to wanting to alternately fuck Tommy's brains out and punch Tommy in the throat.

But still.

(Actually, my inner Paul [Appleby] even went a little weak-kneed, but we all know the guy's queer as a three dollar bill and just doesn't know it, right? Right.)

Interview and feature thing with me, in re RIOT BOY. Yay!

(Shout out to Reenie in there, but I wasn't sure if I should use your name or not. It's on the site in both the faq and the science page -- obviously -- I've actually had a hit or two from people googling you...)

Speaking of Sam and hard cock (er...):

Click me for free smut.

Aw, c'mon, it's fun, fluffy, post EQUILIBRIUM short story smut! There's no big spoiler, and there are vegan gingersnaps! Er, not in the smut. That'd get messy. But, like, after.

I have it on the authority of someone who knows NOTHING about the book that it stands alone. Srsly. And hey, free short story about cute boys with superpowers arguing and fucking and eating cookies. What more can you want in life?

(Cute girls with superpowers arguing and fucking and eating marshmallows? Yeah, I got that, too. Soon, soon...)

I don't know if I'm more sad or happy that this icon is so literally appropriate, right now. Unf.

Oh my god I watched the Scorsese George Harrison thing. I only cried a little bit in the first half, but by the end of the second one it was like a non-stop bawl-fest. We have PLANS to go to the store tomorrow (oh thank god because we have nothing to eat) and my face is gonna be so fuckin puffy argh.

I can't even talk about it I'm so super emo kid right now. Fuck! Ringo says at the end of his interview once he's crying, "It's like Barbara Fucking Walters in here, isn't it?"

Yes. Yes it is. OMG I can't stop!!!11!one!!1!!

Uh, also, Dhani Harrison is pretty much the hottest man in the world. Possibly because he looks and sounds exactly like his dad, but, like, hotter. WHICH SHOULD NOT BE HUMANLY POSSIBLE.

Free stuff is good. Free hot dudes with superpowers is BRILLIANT. [Sep. 12th, 2011|07:33 pm]

Quick note before I am swept off to Wisconsin:


Handy if you're interested in superpowered dudes kissing, but short on spare change this month!

See ya in a week or two.

EQUILIBRIUM is about two guys who have awesome superpowers and are best friends. They kind of pussyfoot around about how much they mean to each other and how hot they think the other one is. Then one day some bad shit happens and they realize that pussyfooting is dumb, because not pussyfooting could mean getting laid -- also, falling in love and being happy forever and ever, if they play their cards right. And survive the bad shit.

Then it really hits the fan and someone almost dies and a bunch of shit catches on fire.

No, that is not the official blurb. Please see below for that.

Please consider buying this book, because I totally wrote it, and it's cute and hot and fun and I honestly think it's an entertaining way to spend your evening, and still waaaaay cheaper than a movie ticket!

Click here for the proper blurb, excerpts, character stats, and cover stuff

Click here to go straight to the buying part

Thanks y'all. And thanks to John and Jen for helping me write it, and Tara for, uh, being one of the characters sorta.

Today's conversations:

(via text)
B: Why don't you go get a bottle of Jameson?
Me: Nah, let's wait til next month. Already tanked two bottles this month between us.
B: I know, but I know you're freaking out today. Thought it would help you.
Me: I know that's why you offered. You're the best!
B: It's true.

(on the phone)
Me: I will send you chapbooks!
Tara: Are they signed?
Me: Yeah!
Tara: ... personalized?
Me: Uh, no. I mean, I didn't know who'd end up with them, so, uh... I just... um...
Tara: (A very stern, disapproving--) Hmmm.
Me: Are you about to demand that I write something in yours?
Tara: Yes.
Me: Okay. I will.
Tara: You better, dammit!

Hey, you can pre-order my book now, if you feel so inclined. Here's the link. Won't cost anything until they're actually ready to ship next month, so yay. And stuff. I'll give you a free chapbook if you do. Here's the link to tell you how to get it.

Oddly enough I've only got like 11 chapbooks left. I did give away a few there at the start as thank yous but... weird. Well, I reckon most people who were excited to pre-order got it done right away and stuff. Plus I reserved a few for people who wouldn't be around for the pre-order day like Cory and Cate and all that.

But still. Wonder if I really will need to break into the con reserve? Not that I'd complain if I did!

One step closer to real, innit?

Oh hey, who just sold a fucking vampire book to her publisher?

Yeah. Me.

God, Liam. You fucker. You wonderful fucker.

Thank you. Seriously. Meghan, Mark, Maureen, Ahalya, Dana, Keli, Reenie, Jen, Sue, John, Laura, Hayley---

Fuck. So many people helped me with this. I know I just forgot someone important. Ten fucking years. Ffffffffffffffuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu.

(Priorities are rearranging themselves. After Res, back to James. Now I can totally justify wallowing in vampire awesome AS MUCH AS I WANT TO SO THERE.)

Barbecue plans today with Carolyn, Carlo, and his kids. If we can get a grill to free up out there in the park. I have faith.

Champagne in the fridge. Vampire Awareness Week.

Jesus, I'm gonna cry again. Look at this sappy fuck.

you could look into my eyes under the moonlight (THE SERIOUS MOONLIGHT) [Jun. 29th, 2011|04:45 pm]

Holy fuck, I am rocking this shit. I mean just tearing through stuff to get done, excited about everything -- EVERYTHING again. Hours flying by as I tear through edits, nervous, yeah, but in a sort of "fuck it" way.

I think... I think I'm back!

Oh thank god. If I had to go to Reardercon as a basketcase, that would've been baaaaaaaaaaaad. Well hey, now I can enjoy Boston.

Thanks, crazy Reilly family! I think you fixed me!

THIS is what I feel like. Right. I'd almost forgotten.

There should be an annotated version of The Resurrectionists that uses John and Meghan's comments, I swear to god. They're so much better than the text. I'm sitting here editing from John's version and I know Megh's cracked me up hard on the last draft, too.

As a sample, from the bit I just edited (which is full of such rad hilarity leading up to this point, too):

Tom, meeting her stony glare with one of his own, only slightly different for the hint of smugness about the mouth and eyes, said, "Miss Hannah, it's nothing for which your admirable beau ought to feel ashamed. As I have long said, God has not left him without resources--and surely He would not be so cruel to the rest of our sex as to endow one man with every desirable quality. What woman would deign to speak to the rest of us?"

Hannah's smile twisted into something cruel, and she drew herself up to her full five-feet-and-four-inches. "So it is not only envy, but also jealousy. I daresay you're right to feel as much, Mr. Brandon. Absolutely right." [Oh, snap! - John]

I laughed so hard it hurt. Oh my god.

I now have this unshakable image of Paul, after Hannah flounces off, going, "Oh, snap! You just got served, sucker!"

And Tom being like, "Fuck that noise, man--haters gon' hate." As he straightens his cravat.

tell me you love me, say I'm the only one [May. 7th, 2011|12:25 pm]

I love that I made a random twitter comment yesterday about how I wanted to call my second romance novel FUCK ME ETIENNE, and I'm still getting responses going, "I'd read it!"

It really is the best name for a romance novel ever, though. And on the cover I want Brady wearing his homemade spray paint stenciled shirt that says it, too. Ha!

... just wanted to share that. Later~

Fuck it's one of those super fucking restless nights where nothing is appealing at all ever. I'm listless and weird and want to do something but have started EVERYTHING and find it impossible.

I shouldn't be allowed to be "between big projects" ever. It makes me totally useless. It's like I sent Jonesy off and now I've been sat here all fucking day waiting for it to be May so I can work on The Resurrectionists. Yet I know I NEED to be between projects or I'll go insane(er)--

Oh, you know what I need?

The Sims. Yeah. That.

If even that'll do it... might need to start a new town or something so I don't just start it up and turn it off (like I've done 1412 times with LotRO today.)

Must. Resist. Siren. Call. Of. Becca.

It rained all day, pretty much. I dicked around a little on LotRO, but ended up reading through all my newspaper bits. Then it was time for sushi for Balaji's continued birthday celebration.I didn't have a drink because I'm a bit weak and mehhhhhhh today, but I felt terrible when we got home. Then I got completely fucking owned.

Goddamn. Tired. And yet, I would count it as a good day!
