I’ve never really done anything for my “blogaversary” but I figure after six years of blogging at this blog — whether it was called Bacon & Whiskey or Amoeba Kat Musings or whatever name it might have in the future — maybe a little celebration is in order. Some people do full on blog parties for their blogging anniversaries. I… Read more »
It’s here! I’m so excited. I’ve wanted to show off my cover for Stranger Skies for a WHILE now, but had to force myself to wait til today. This was not easy okay. After the cover, there’s the cover-copy/synopsis/blurb thing, an excerpt, and a giveaway to win an advance reading copy ebook! Plenty of options for entry, and I’m giving… Read more »
Today I’m hosting Rosanne Rivers on her blog tour in honor of the release of her new book, After the Fear! This means you get to read an excerpt and enter to win a copy of the book. Exciting, right?

What’s your least favourite part of this time of year? Don’t hold back; tell me how you really feel.
Are you like me — a master at wrapping gifts who takes pride in your excellent work — or are you like Mr. Katje — duct tape, bow, call it a day? Or do you not exchange gifts at this time of year? What gift-giving conventions exist in your family, culture, or religion?
Holiday decorations: happy shiny fun time, or unnecessary hassle? Or third option of which I’m not aware?
Relevant to my post about not being able to do math. (The Ogre, by the way, is my boyfriend/partner/engaged-to-be-engaged-almost-someday-fiancé. We eat muffins and watch 90s movies together.) Me: I’m terrified about starting school on Monday. What if I suck? Him: You won’t suck. Me: But I’m taking Economics. I’m terrible at numbers and math and money things. How am… Read more »
Do you like snow? Love it? Feel indifferent? Loathe it? Think he was a terrible president? If you do enjoy snow, what’s your favourite snowtime activity? (Sledding, snowball fights, burying bodies, curling up next to the fire inside, etc.)
Or do research. Or blog. Or anything. December 24th to January 6th is not the 12 Days of Christmas. December 26th to January 6th is. I’m two days off with this giveaway thing. Even after I counted four times before doing the first post. Even though I knew that January 6th was Epiphany and therefore the last day of the… Read more »
What’s your perennial unfavourite Christmas carol? Which one really grinds your gears? Which song do you loathe?
