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.

Happy DAPPER Day!

In celebration of today’s release of Jim McCann & Janet Lee’s Return of the Dapper Men, I have changed my profile pics on both Twitter and Facebook to this Dapper version of MOI! Janet drew this last year for the “Diary of a Mad Scientist Garden Gnome” serial (which, like Dapper Men, was *also* inspired by a J.K. Lee Christmas ornament).

Janet asked me what I would like for my author pic, so I’m sure I said “something steampunky…with a top hat!” And this is what I got!! What do you think? She just knows I look good in red.

I am so very excited about this graphic novel release — it’s one thing when two of your longtime friends get to work together on an awesome project, and it’s quite another when that project pops up on MTV, Ain’t it Cool News, USA Today, and the NYT Christmas Gift List. (!!!)

I mean, seriously, Janet, could you make it HARDER for a little sister to keep up with you? Sheesh!! All I did was get reviewed!

Be smart and get your hands on this book before it has to go to reprint — click here to purchase Return of the Dapper Men from Amazon.com. If you’d like to know a little more about the book, click here to watch the YouTube trailer. (Warning: you will be instantly sad that this is not an animated series.)

Click here to visit Janet’s Etsy shop and purchase some beautiful and inspiring Christmas ornaments of your own! They are limited edition original sets every year, so if you see one you like, get it now. They are light and easy to ship, so they make great gifts. And what could be a better gift than original artwork on your Christmas tree?

Janet is just that awesome. Which is why she gets to be the Aviatrix.
