Notes from the front lines.

In a move that surprises no one, I am not one of the finalists for the PNWA Literary Contest. Though I did discover that Nathan Everett, known as Wayzgoose among the NaNoWriMo set, is a finalist! So rock on for him.

The news of the finalists is mainly of note to me because the notes from the judges are supposed to be back this week. I can then turn around and roll that feedback into the manuscript I’m working on. I may have to have a few beers before facing the criticisms, though.

In other news, Jennifer Brozek is going to be on her “Murder and Mayhem” tour with Seanan McGuire. Jennifer has a collection of short stories coming out, In a Gilded Light: 105 Tales of the Macabre while Ms. McGuire will be featuring her series, Sparrow Hill Road. I have a couple locations from an email she sent out if you want to check those out. There is probably also info to be found by examining Jennifer’s Web site

    Nice sparrow article. The link didn’t work for me, but that could be because this work computer seems all screwy past couple days. I mean, IE 5 on OS 9 on a 4-year-old iMac–can anything possibly suck more?

    I’ve tried on two occasions to play lawful good, pacifistic-ish characters, and both times I couldn’t bear not being able to save the world/the other PCs as effectively, and the character morphed a bit in play. But it was an interesting feat to attempt and I enjoyed it. Looking forward to your continuing story.
