You know the drill by now.

First up, a relatively rare pitch for people to pick up my CDs. I'm posting this largely because Wicked Girls is still in pre-order (through my website), and Stars Fall Home is on the verge of going entirely out of print. Seriously. Not joking. So you may want to consider picking these up soon, if you were ever going to.

A review of Rosemary and Rue is up at Genre Reviews, and reads, "I'm sure I'm not really conveying here how awesome I find this series, but discovering what happens next fills me with anticipatory need." Spiffy!

[ profile] hanabishirecca has posted a lovely LJ review of An Artificial Night, and says, "An Artificial Night provided for me everything I want in a novel. The characters are rock solid. The plot is phenomenal. I even found myself cheering with glee one moment and nearly weeping another. This book was overall superb and is a must read for anyone that finds at least a remote interest in Urban Fantasy." DUDE. That's a win.

Oh, hey, I did a guest post for Marianne de Pierres about writing and being Mira Grant and lots of other fun stuff. You should check it out.

Finally for this grab-bag of things I needed out of my link soup, Fantastique Foibles and Fables has posted a lovely review of Feed (which was given an A+!). There are no real pull quotes, but you should definitely take a look.

Hey, that was a great article! It answered all my unasked questions about your pseudonym, though I'd deduced already that there must be good reasons for them. Brand recognition and non-competition make perfect sense.

I do want your CDs, but funds are tight around here. $2300 of periodontal work will do that to a budget. But I'll see what I can do. :)

And I like hearing about your cats. Post more about them!

I understand tightness of funds. I'm only posting about the CDs right now because a) Wicked Girls is in pre-order, and b) Stars Fall Home is literally down to five copies in my possession.

Wow, five copies?? I'm going to look at my budget in a little bit. :) Much cheaper than the Bob Dylan and Sarah McLachlan concerts, neither of which I could justify.

To analyze, you have a good, low-key, advertising "campaign" on your LJ, out there without being pushy. (The next paper topic I'm giving my class is analyzing advertising. I hope I come up with something to talk about tonight...).

Plus, well, I've heard you sing. It's a lot of fun. :)

Support your local artist!

Hallo! I just finished Feed and I wanted to come by and comment on it.

LOVED IT! Made me smile! Made me cry!

I also have to admit to a tiny thrill when the opening pages took place in Santa Cruz and environs - it's always extra-special when a novel is situated (at least in part) where you live :)

So - congrats! Well done! Now you've got me hooked on your novels regardless of what name you publish them under!

Awesome! Thank you for letting me know. :)

Cleaning out my LJ comment folder tonight, and I'm reminded to share this brief exchange I had about Feed in a fairly unlikely place....
