New reviews are up at Orson Scott Card’s Intergalactic Medicine Show! Title: Fuzzy Nation Author: John Scalzi EAN: 9780765328540 Admit it: it’s a strange title.

Which, takes a lot more work than you…

Princesses and Unicorns

Yes, I’m being silly and trying to review/revise and entire manuscript in just a few days so I can send it off to my editor before the WRW retreat this weekend.

There’s a Washington Romance Writers retreat coming up here at the end of the month (which is only 10 days away…where has this year gone??). Right about this now is when I usually start thinking, “What sort of swag do I have to give out?” If growing up in publishing with Sherrilyn Kenyon has taught me one thing, it’s…
