Portland, I love you. I miss you when I am gone. You have such delicious food, and pretty docks, and bricks and cobblestones and steeples. Also my house and my island and my bed, which are all the best.
I have two days at home before I’m off again, so we are tucking in, making steaks with coconut peanut sauce and chocolate chip pretzel cookies, and watching us some…well, probably not Deadwood because it’s depressing. Something. Movie date night in. And working during the day, because I have a million things due, and my office for another month–and it looks like I get to have it every winter! My accordion teacher says she’d be happy to have me rent it while she’s gone each year, and this means delightful winters full of books and snow and watching the ferry come in.
Also Toby says NEVER LEAVE AGAIN. NEVER. (Also deal with my fur because when you leave I see a mat specialist and LOOK HOW PRETTY I AM FOR YOU MOMMY.)
On Thursday I’m heading out to Philadelphia. I’ll be reading at:
April 7 Between Books, Claymont, DE/7:00pm
April 8: Will be speaking to the Philadelphia Science Fiction Society at 9pm.
April 9 Towne Book Center, Collegeville, PA/2:00pm
Please come to these things! There’s an FB page for the BB reading here, and I’ll have Deathless comics and a little raffle for the readings.
Also! Next week I will be in Chicago, reading at the Book Cellar on April 14th at 7! I rarely read in Chicago so don’t miss it!
That’s all the housekeeping for today, I believe.
Oh! Wait! Remember when I was like OMG I WROTE A VAMPIRE STORY and it was awesome and way different and bubblegum soccergirl vampire? Well, it’s out today, in the anthology Teeth! I reaaaaally want you guys to read it, so I hope some of you get ahold of the antho.
Now I am to work.
