Got caught up with lots of stuff again. First, before I forget, yesterday received the tiniest check ever from Fictionwise.com for $1.93, and
my Noreascon Four worldcon program participant refund for $180. Good timing, as always.
Also, stated Tai Chi Chuan classes. I am a total beginner and it is way harder than it looks. The class is every Friday night and tomorrow is my third class. So far it's great fun, and the sifu and the studio are pretty amazing.
In more Atlanta Nights news (soon to be available from Amazon, see link), Travis Tea now has an offical website, designed and created by yours truly -- www.travistea.com or http://sfwa.org/members/TravisTea/. The fun continues to grow. ;-)
Still no news on Margot Phoenix, but the editor said they will be getting to it soon. *crossing all of my appendages and holding my breath*
The Wildside February Newsletter has now been posted. Go look! Go buy! Lots of good stuff out this month, including a new novel by Anna Tambour, titled SPOTTED LILY. Here's a description of the novel:
Angela Pendergast, escapee from the Australian bush, grew up with the smell of hot mutton fat in her hair, the thought of her teeth crunching a cold Tim Tam chocolate biscuit -- the height of decadent frivolity. Now, though her tastes have grown and she knows absolutely what she wants, her life is embarrassingly stuck. So when the Devil drops into her bedroom in her sharehouse in inner-city Sydney with a contract in hand, she signs. He's got only a Hell's week to fulfil his side, but in the meantime he must chaperone her -- or is it the other way around?
Be sure to get your copy, hot off the presses!
Talking about presses, the results of my Holiday Free Book for Review Offer are continuing to roll in. Reviewer chance posts her review of LORDS OF RAINBOW in her Livejournal. Go check it out. :-)
The weather here has been spring-like, and inbetween the days of sparse warmth and rain I've been puttering in the garden already. Jasmine vines are blooming, and the perfume is amazing. I moved three bushes including a sprawling Potato Bush (they were too crowded the way I planted them last year, so they had to be spread out a bit) and planted a new Cape Honeysuckle bush and two Rununculus in the Asian garden flower beds. The gardening fun is definitely beginning for the year, and the plants have grown a lot since last year. The two baby trees I planted are also budding. :-)
