GALLEY STAGE: DONE.
That’s it. If there’s anything that needs fixing, it’s too late. (True story: I had to get someone else to read the galley for me because I had been looking at it for so long that my eyes were crossing.)
When I have a release date, I’ll post it everywhere. For now, though, it looks like “sometime in November”. Works for me!
I’m going to do a release party thing on the Dreamspinner blog, so that should be interesting; I’ll also be writing a post for Guys Like Romance Too (but that won’t be published until…December.) I’ll have more info on that as I get it, so. (Topics I’m planning on covering: music, the rosary/Book of Common Prayer, possibly/probably the setting, and I don’t know what else.)
…That’s about all the news I’ve got for the moment.
|Here is a lesson in creative writing. First rule: Do not use semicolons. They are transvestite hermaphrodites representing absolutely nothing. All they do is show you’ve been to college. -- |
I was going to add my own agreement to Reesa’s, but then I was utterly side tracked. Is it possible to be a transvestite hermaphrodite? If you have the secondary sexual characteristics of both sexes, you can’t necessarily dress in the “opposite” manner… Unless, I suppose, you choose not to wear clothing at all, which is pretty much the opposite of dressing like anyone, whatever their gender presentation.
Yay semanitcs, connotations, and definitions!
(But seriously: semicolons are awesome; I like them a lot. Learn to use them properly and, like adjectives and adverbs, they will help you out.)
i dont think you guys appreciate how rad this site is
because first of all you got your basic fantasy and game race names for like
BUT AS IF THAT ISN’T ENOUGH
REAL NAMES WHICH ARE GOOD FOR BOOKS
AND THIS THERE’S MORE????
BAM, PLACE NAMES
AND STILL MORE
SO YOU SEE THESE LITTLE OPTIONS HERE

This is a pretty impressive resource. I’m particularly charmed by the fact that they remembered Wales (and gave Welsh names their own section).
Also, here are the first ten tavern names it gave me:
The Clever Couple
The Aggressive Mole
The Exclusive Flute Bar
The Lovely Seals
The Dead Pudding Inn
Ye Olde Strawberry
The Fuzy Crab
The Outrageous Pants Pub
The Quaint Axe
The Snoring Pea Tavern
I wasn’t aware that peas could snore, but there you are. (The Outrageous Pants Pub sounds like a place Ezekiel would insist on stopping if for no other reason than to watch Justinian stoically pretend they’re visiting a pub called Ye Olde Strawberry.)
So yeah, this looks like a great site to bookmark.
…that sounds like R2-D2’s inquisitive beeps.
This has been your moment of completely random inanity for the day. As you were.
Aaaaaand I’m not really sure I can convey what I want without resorting to bad drawings. I wish I could figure out which email address I used to buy Sai and find my APSE 8 disc…
…because I have to keep putting it down to pull at my hair and howl things like “Weasels aren’t venomous!”.
Also the history of the British Isles in the 11th century is a freaking MESS and my eyes start glazing over because I have no idea who these people are or why they’re important. (Outside of, like, Henry &c.)
It was time.
Everything else in my immediate vicinity is green and awesome, so I thought my blog should be, too.
