Geek Girls and Big Ideas

Today on the HERO Book Tour, we have:

My “The Big Idea” essay, hosted by John Scalzi, in which I talk about…well…the big idea behind HERO. Which is always fun! ANd John is a particular hero of MINE, so it’s an honor to have an essay on his site.

***

Another one-of-a-kind Fairy Tale Rant Video for www.geekgirlinlove.com, in which I rant about Petronella and “Master Maid,” the original fairy tales behind HERO (the ones fewer people are apparently familiar with). Click here to watch!

***

I talk about “The Book Shelf I Can’t Live Without” over at Mel’s Shelves, complete with picture and accompanying list of titles I’d be surprised if you’ve heard of.

***

And today’s quote…since I’ve been remiss about posting the quotes (but you can always find them all on Tumblr)

A Sword and a Destiny

Wonderland: My Favorite Bit

Where do you go to find decent fiction to read? When I’ve asked people this question lately, their answer is most often John Scalzi’s “The Big Idea.”

In the footsteps of that fabulous Idea, my dear friend Mary Robinette Kowal has launched a feature on her blog called “My Favorite Bit.” In lieu of asking authors the age-old question “Where do you get your ideas?”, Mary asks, “What was your favorite thing about writing the book you just had released?”

You’ll be surprised at the answers.

I’m honored today to be a guest on Mary’s blog, speaking about “My Favorite Bit” of The Wonderland Alphabet: Alice’s Adventures Through the ABCs and What She Found There. Is my favorite bit the same as yours? I bet it isn’t.
