Books on the Underground

In NYC the subway has rats the size of house cats. In London the Underground has books. Like mine. For free. You win, London. I love this idea.

Time for me to fly

I've been writing ALL SUMMER LONG. By that I mean, head-down, eyes-forward, fugue-state, little contact with the real world, living in my Batman pajamas and Mariners hoodie (yes, all writers are also part-time fashion criminals), in a common-law marriage with my laptop WRITING. And it's been wonderful.

I'm just shy of 80,000 words on the next novel. No title yet, which is driving me bonkers, but I'm sure it'll manifest and introduce itself to me soon.

But, I also have a smattering of book travel to Connecticut, Louisiana, Virginia, Chicago, Spokane, Seattle, and Billings. So, dusting off the suitcase, loading up on audio books, and bracing myself for a vigorous airport pat-down.

See you soon.

I just destroyed Seattle. Oops, my bad

Hey kids, the second book in the Apocalypse Triptych, edited by Hugo award winning editor John Joseph Adams and Hugh Howey is available...oh, you know...like right now! Book two features end of the world stories by Seanen McGuire, Jonathan Mayberry, Elizabeth Bear, and yours truly, wreaking havoc on Seattle, circa 1910.

As T.S. Elliot once said, "This is the way the world ends, not with a bang but by a comet, a zombie horde, a nanobot takeover, ah, screw this, I'm gonna drink some absinthe. Cheers." Something like that.

Jamie's crying, Leesha's laughing

Yes, after hiding from social media all week, I was finally called out to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge by the Pulpwood Queen herself, Kathy Murphy, Adele Macomber, and Jerry Jordan along with all the kids at the Great Falls Community Rec Center. The pressure was on! So I donated. I got soaked. And I nominated fellow authors Lisa See and Lisa Genova, plus Vanilla Ice (who else can bring this thing to an end?)

If you can, please donate at www.alsa.org, or to your favorite charity, or just do something nice today. Time for me to dry off...
