night circus advance copies

I received a rather rained-on cardboard box this morning. This is what was inside: These are Advance Reader Copies of THE NIGHT CIRCUS. Commonly referred to as ARCs, which I’m still not entirely sure stands for Advanced Reading or Advance Reader or some combination thereof. I’m pretty certain that the C is for Copy, though. […]

flax-golden tales: zombie snow squirrels on the rampage

zombie snow squirrels on the rampage “There is no such thing as a zombie snow squirrel,” I say, even though he has his serious eyebrows on. Normally the eyebrows are a good indicator as to whether or not he’s kidding. “You don’t get out much, do you?” he asks, rhetorical because he knows the answer. […]

mostly posting for the antelope

Change of scenery! This is where I’m sitting this week, going over my first pass pages. I will likely not be online all that much while I read and re-read pretty, pretty pages. Tessa keeps stealing my chair if I abandon it for too long, so I should probably get back there. (And I should […]

flax-golden tales: not in narnia anymore

not in narnia anymore They kept saying that it would stop, making predictions based on patterns in the wind and unseen stars and archaic interpretations of the behaviors of woodland creatures. Just a few more weeks, they said. Months ago. This storm shall be the last, they said. And then there was another, and another. […]
