Bonus Internal News Update!

I forgot to tell you all the other day something quite amusing/awesome: See that photo up there? It is featured in the new Animals Talking in All Caps book. I took this photo when we visited the grizzly observation center in Yellowstone last year, and shortly after we returned, ATIAC was asking for photo submissions to include in the book.

Unfortunately, my last name is misspelled in the credits ("Habien" instead of Habein. E-before-I!), but I'm still very pleased to be included. I won't spoil the caption that Justin Valmassoi wrote, so you'll just have to check out the book.

In other news, I have a new post up at Persephone Magazine today: We Try It! Sharknado Cupcakes.

Oh yes. Sharknado. Cupcakes.

Also, I've finally updated my e-book reviewing policy. I'm only a little bit speedier about reading them.

Now, off to finally finish this book review I started...

The "Good Lord Am I Behind on Everything" Internal News Update as of 9-11-13

Wow, has it really been since JULY that I've updated this page? I do apologize, for I have been doing lots of things writing and otherwise, and everything has gotten away from me.

First off, The Next Best Book Blog was kind enough to interview me for their Would You Rather? series. Twas a lot of fun.

Now here's the list of recent P-Mag updates, not quite as long for the time elapsed because they had to move servers not once, but twice:

At Word Riot, there are only two Notes From Elsewhere entries:

8-2-13: In which I talk about Calvin & Hobbes, non-literary hubs, Chloe Caldwell, submission news and more.
8-17-13: With the best explanation of the traditional publishing process I've seen yet, "Strong Female Characters," blurbs, book dealbreakers, and more.

Because of some server/security issues, I've had trouble logging into Word Riot lately, so between that and my...uh.. laziness, there haven't been too many posts. I plan on remedying that as soon as the issue is resolved with a lot of posts, partially because I've been bookmarking a ton of links and it would be a shame to not share them. Stay tuned for that.

I think that's everything. I promise to get back on the reviewing train here soon. Thanks for reading.
