Yesterday I finished proofing the print copy of Stranger Skies, made edits to the file, and sent the files off to the printer’s. I’m glad I actually sat myself down and proofed the thing. I was feeling a bit “BUT I’VE DONE IT SO MANY TIMES ALREADY” when I got it and didn’t want to proof it. Turns out there… Read more »

Well, I don’t know, maybe bras do bray.

      Comments Off on Well, I don’t know, maybe bras do bray.

Yesterday I woke up at 6pm. The takeaway from this is that my sleep schedule has been borked. Again. So, natch, I’m pulling an all-nighter to right it. I have my first volunteer day for VIWF on Thursday. 10 am, Granville Island. I’ll need an hour to drive out there and an hour to get ready in the morning, and… Read more »

I have the best fans

      2 Comments on I have the best fans

I spent Saturday at Vancouver Pagan Pride Day. No booth; I was just there as an attendee. I did bring 40 cards with codes on them for free downloads of Bellica. I figured I’d talk it up a bit and hand out the cards, maybe, sort of? I’m terrible at talking myself or my books up. So when I first… Read more »

Mercury, You Are Drunk. Give Me Your Keys.

      2 Comments on Mercury, You Are Drunk. Give Me Your Keys.

Mercury does this thing about three times a year. Well, actually, it doesn’t really do anything; it just looks like it’s doing something. From Earth it looks like Mercury is moving backwards. They call it retrograde. And dammit if it doesn’t just fuck everything up. I  mean, yeah, sure, it’s just a planet and it’s probably not really affecting you,… Read more »

I just finished a novel, no big deal

      4 Comments on I just finished a novel, no big deal

You read that right. I just finished Stranger Skies, the NaNoWriMo novel I’ve been posting snippets from for SFFSat. First draft clocks in at just over 70,000 words. Definitely shorter than Bellica‘s ~250,000 words, but then Bellica was meant to be a standalone (ha ha) and Stranger Skies is going to be the first in what’s looking like at least… Read more »

Weekly Round-up, November 16th: Bellica, SFFSat, Savita, and mom’s book

      Comments Off on Weekly Round-up, November 16th: Bellica, SFFSat, Savita, and mom’s book

The title of this post makes it seem like the “weekly round-up” is an actual thing here at Bacon and Whiskey, but this is probably the first time I’ve ever done it. Also, not sure if it’ll happen again; there are just several short things this week that I want to cover in one post. ~*~ Science-Fiction Fantasy Saturday If… Read more »
