Remember last summer how I went to physics camp for three days and had the time of my life?
Well, Chad Orzel and the good folks at the University of Maryland's Joint Quantum Institute are at it again!
The Schrodinger Sessions II will run from July 28-30 and feature another fascinating array of talks and demonstrations by experts in the field of quantum physics. Applications to attend are being taken now through the end of March. If you're and author and you're interested in quantum physics, you won't want to miss this, trust me.
Hey all, Harmony Ink is running a dollar reads sale this weekend and it's not too late to take advantage of the deals, including All the Colors of Love for $1!
Here's a little snippet of something I'm working on:
The market in Pelon was a square mile of stalls selling everything from shoe leather to sunblossom butter. It was also a magnet for every busker and ne'er-do-pel in Harken's Landing. A chel show was underway, the pel actors made up with large, oversize speckles all over their faces and orange wigs. Fix hurried past the laughing crowd.
"Silsinthe! Best quality! Brimstoke Gold Label Silsithe here!" The barker was a tall pel with shaggy black hair in need of a trim. She wore the livery of a coat-check pel at the Harken Club as if it were an ash dealer's smock and the very sight of her made the ground feel more solid beneath Fix's feet.
"Brimstoke Gold Label my ass," he said, stepping up to the little stand made from bottle crates. "It's soda water and apple brandy."
"Fix! Keep your voice down," said Break.
"What happened to your job checking coats at the Harken Club?"
"I quit it a week ago."
He raised an eyebrow at her.
"Okay, they fired me, all right? You happy?"
"Anything but. What did you do?"
"Why do you assume it was my fault?"
"Tell me you weren't going through their pockets. You could be hanged for stealing."
"No! Not that. Though one pocket mirror more or less would hardly matter to those purebloods. But I know, I know, not worth the risk. No, I just happened to overhear Ei Fielding telling Ei Parmenter she was planning to sell her lands to Ei Somerday and I informed her neighbor, Ei Candletree for a very tidy sum. Which is a good thing, because Ei Somerday got wind of it and got me fired, the spawn."
Woo hoo! Big thanks to everyone who helped me spread the word and everyone who took the survey and let their voices be heard. In particular I want to thank the Goodreads M/M Romance group and my publishers, Riptide and Dreamspinner, all of whom used the power of their platforms to help get the word out.
I presented the results of the survey in the lectures I taught at Seton Hill University and both presentations were very well recieved. Soon I'll post them here so everyone can have a look. Stay tuned!
After seven years with my old blog, Friskbiskit, doing double duty as my website, I decided it was high time for a change. So I created this new website with a streamlined design I just love. Things are still under construction, but please feel free to explore, and if you have any comments or suggestions, I'd love to hear them!
