And then "Coffee and Porn in the Morning" (one of my favorite blogs -- hot picture blog run by a bi writer chick YES PLEASE) totally posted a picture that looks just like Mal and Theo (no tattoo though -- too bad!)last night:

But all of my life, I’ve been treated like a fool [Jan. 10th, 2012|04:18 pm]

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...

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.

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!

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

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~

In line for a number but you don't understand (like a modern man) [Apr. 14th, 2011|09:50 pm]

That is all.

Well, on that subject. Another day spent in the Library of Congress, and this time I got to an abolitionist newspaper. As expected, it was extremely self-righteous and irritating, in the exact same measure that the Southern Dem paper was batshit insane.

And I'm pretty sure the Know Nothing Party were the Tea Party of their day. Xenophobic, Anti-immigration, Catholic hating, slavery endorsing idiots. So... yep. That's about right.

We're not on the verge of Civil War, though. So I guess we're still doing better than they were back then--which, to be frank, I did not expect.

I still might go to the historical society next Tuesday. Just because it'd be awesome, and maybe I'd find a few neat little turns of phrase. But for the most part, my work for this week is done apart from printing the covers. This is partly because I hemmed and hawed about it. If I print them myself, I can't print them to the edge--there will be a bleed. And so, I thought I'd just do the images smaller and not even try to take up the whole page--what's the point? And then I thought, what if that looks even worse?

But fuck it, I like empty space. I'm making these fucking things one at a time, here. People won't mind. Anyhow, I think I'll go pick out some card stock and do a test print tomorrow. Wondering if it's smarter to print one and do color copies on it or print them all... thinking the former. Wondering if it'll look decent.

The cover is fucking stunning, though. Even more stunning than Hansen and Sam are adorable. Which is SAYING A LOT.

And I think the winter will be wonderful [Feb. 5th, 2011|10:34 am]

Okay, that first flight was annoying, but mostly because of the usual 12 screaming babies. I slept. Some.

I just keep telling myself that after we get off the next flight, we'll be home. Dc! Yay!

Yes, after leaving the Chennai airport, I was mostly over my sadness about leaving and more thinking of my own bed and my cat and writing stuff. Balaji is already fantasizing about Phil Simms. Er, i mean watching inside the NFL. AND Phil Simms.

Long ass layover in Frankfurt this time, a lost 5 hours, and they threw out our duty free scotch from India because apparently you can only carry it on if it comes through another eu country. Which makes sense, admittedly, but I do wish theyd thought to tell us that in India.

Ah well, talk to y'all again soon. Mmmmm home. I have to admit that I do love the USA... Especially when I'm out of it. It's not so bad, sometimes! :D

Right, my €8 is about up. Later!


Aaaand I'm home-as it turned out, my €8 was up just before I went to press send. That's what I get for admitting to liking the US, I guess. The world disagrees!

Last night I slept for about 12 hours and have a fucking headache, but the lag won't really catch up to me until tonight. Balaji's already watching nonstop Super Bowl coverage (thank god we were gone these two weeks...). Phil Simms, last night. Yeah. He went there.

Today, I'm going to sub the full of Equilibrium, send out acknowledgments for RPP, and send out no thank yous/short list notices for the first week of stories. Because yes, I read them in India. The pile is thick this time, I didn't want to get buried alive. Also, write Mark and let him know about the sub I read in flight.

But I gotta do all this before the lag hits me, so I'm off!

[ETA: Success! Now, to do nothing!]

Also, I stole this from Sarah:

Your result for The RPG Class Test...


59% Combativeness, 40% Sneakiness, 71% Intellect, 25% Spirituality

Aggressive, but with the brains to back it up: You are a Spellsword!

Score! You have a prestige class. A prestige class can only be taken after you've fulfilled certain requirements. This may mean that you're an exceptionally talented person, but it probably doesn't.

Spellswords combine arcane might with combat know-how. They're much tougher than mages, like to wear armor, and can cast spells through their weapons. They're very, very, good at doing lots of damage to a single target very quickly, and while not quite as tough as most fighters, are still pretty hard to kill.

You're both smart and aggressive, which means that you're probably pretty dangerous when pissed off. You also tend to be somewhat straightforward, which is nice, and don't have much use for spirituality or mysticism.
