For those of you who don’t know (and I, despite years as a rather avid reader, had no idea until I started figuring out how to get published) an ARC is an Advance (or Advanced) Reader (or Reader’s or Reading) Copy (the C seems to always be for copy). They are also sometimes called galleys, […]
I am mostly hibernating but I went outside to play in the snow on Sunday. I made a snow bunny. And a tiny snowman. And I ran around Narnia-looking Central Park in the sunshine getting all pink-cheeked from the cold and had a lovely snow-day day and now I’m back to trying to catch up […]
Briefly in Boston, with just enough time to get snowed on and have cocktails before heading back home to NYC, which oddly but nicely does actually feel like home already. Alas, did not bring appropriate footwear for the winter wonderland, but it’s pretty.
I have been meaning to post this for ages, but here is a link to the beautiful music Aby Wolf did for my Talking Volumes event in Minnesota: Isn’t it pretty?

So tonight I was actually supposed to be in London but instead this afternoon I was virtually in London thanks to the wonderment that is Skype. It went fairly well even though it was very odd from my end because I couldn’t see the audience and Audrey was a lovely disembodied voice, though I suppose […]
Autumn is my favorite. Apples and cinnamon and scarves and crispy leaves crunching beneath boots. I wish you a glorious autumnal equinox, pumpkin-flavored & sweater-cozy. The black & white renders them slightly incognito, but that field is indeed full of pumpkins:
