Anyway.  You know what I told my editor and publisher a few weeks ago? I told them that I would turn in The Chocolatier’s Ghost by the end of the month.  Apparently, despite the scarring of many years, I forgot that April is my super-busy-run-run-and-become-brain-dead month.  And that the last half of March is just as insane as all of April. So yeah.  I promised to turn in a fully polished MS (the second …

Woot. Getting this in under the wire. I wrote it partly over lunch, which was basically shoving oatmeal in my mouth and hoping to have a few minutes to myself…the beginning of this semester has been a madhouse. Tonight I went and worked on some illumination. Might get started on that again…I love the painting aspect, once you’ve gotten the design down it’s like a medieval coloring book. Currently I am scribbling in a …

fuckyeahvikingsandcelts: foreveranartstudent: Title: Wooden Door of the Stave church at Urnes, Norway Date: 1050-1070 Importance: This beautiful ornate wooden door demonstrates that by the 11th century scandinavia had become a christian society but some viking traditions remained such as the intertwining animals and forest in this church door. The strikingly refined abstract organic forms and sense of rhythm in most of the viking weaving designs is apparent. Urnes art 🙂

runplod: And for good melancholic measure, here are some beautiful Pennsic photos taken by Darter the Chronicler http://www.pbase.com/darter02/p34_001. le sigh. The Pennsic war is a place of magic…you can fence all day, then walk around and look at the beauty of the fire-lit camps and the moon over the lake, hear distant drums and the laughter of friends.  I really do love it.

Because the book, while being a swashybuckly murder mystery with airships and fae …

I’m going to post two posts that should have gone out earlier, but someone decided to play with my website… Someone must have hit you with a phaser set on stunning! Really? Would that work as a pick up line? Seriously? Jim is reading off pickup lines for nerdy girls to me…and none of them would work. I am currently embracing my inner geek.
