Monday Misc.

Working on a deadline to get a submission package polished up and mailed off, so today I’m doing bullet-point blogging.

  • Attention reviewers: if you’re interested in a copy of The Snow Queen’s Shadow [Amazon | B&N | Mysterious Galaxy], please let me know and I’ll hook you up with my publicist. (U.S. only, I’m afraid. And per Penguin’s guidelines, reviewing for Amazon, Goodreads, and such don’t count.)
  • When the Hero Comes Home is out, and includes my goblins vs. zombies story “The Blue Corpse Corps.” Trade paperback is $19.99, and the e-book is $3.99.
  • The Ann Arbor Book Festival is this weekend. I’ll be there all day, doing the author breakfast, a workshop, chatting about social networking, signing books, and generally being both bookish and festive.

Finally, check out this LEGO Sandcrawler by marshal-banana. Built of more than 10,000 pieces, this thing weighs about 20 kilograms, and includes 22 different lights and nine motors. There’s a YouTube video if you want to see it in action.
