I’ve got several authors who’ve agreed to write First Book Friday pieces for me, but none of them are ready yet, so today you get random link sausage instead.
- My agent responds to Kris Rusch’s posts on inaccurate e-book royalties.
- He also neatly busts the myth that a book has to earn out its advance in order to earn a profit for the publisher.
- Star Trek: Phase II, the folks who have put out several new “classic” Trek episodes (including World Enough and Time, with George Takei) has released a featurette for FedCon XX which addresses the J. J. Abrams reboot. I am amused.
- LEGO Star Wars advent calendar coming later this year. WANT!!! (For the Santa Yoda minifig alone!)
- NSFW fanart of Talia and Snow, by rubendevela. For obvious reasons, I won’t be adding this one to the fan art page on my web site, but I like the image. It’s odd seeing such a pic of my characters, but sexybits aside, I like this take on them (though Snow’s hair is a little too Rogue-like). And there’s something heartwarming about seeing Snow and Talia finally get their smooching on. (Sorry – I’m not saying anything about whether such a scene will appear in Snow Queen’s Shadow!)
- For those who prefer SFW fanart, here’s a fun piece by Yutaan called Asskickery in Stilettos.
- Finally, just to earworm those of you who grew up in the 80s, have this wonderful LEGO creation by Misterzumbi. Click the pic for more photos. (And if that doesn’t get the earworm going, you can always check out this sequence of Dr. McNinja vs. Ghost.)
