Next weekend, I’m a panelist at Phoenix Comicon. My first time as panelist and it’s at a honkin’ huge event–some 30,000 people will attend Saturday alone! This is my schedule as it looks right now:
- The Secret Lives of Debut Authors : Friday 4:30pm – 5:30pm
- Science Fiction and Fantasy Poets : Saturday 10:30am – 11:30am
- Fantasy that Defies Description : Saturday 12:00pm – 1:00pm
The most current info can be found at my guest page.
In addition, I’ll be stalking a lot of my author-friends (and Nathan Fillion. Because reasons.). I’ll be in steampunk attire… and at this con, that pretty much means I’ll blend in. Which is pretty awesome, I think.
If you’ll be attending, let me know! And please, come up and say hi.Read More
No, I don’t have them in my hot little hands, but my awesome editor at Harper Voyager shared the joy over Twitter this morning.

If you’ll be at BEA in New York City these next few days, they’ll be available at the SFWA booth! (And if you see them there, do take a pic and send it my way! I’d love to see.)
Edit to add: Michael J. Martinez was kind enough to inform me that the SFWA booth is giving away cards that provide a free ebook download of my book, too. Huzzah!Read More
It seems a lot of standard buns are just… there. A thing to hold meat. They aren’t memorable or flavorful.
You want something better than a mere meat sling? MAKE THIS.
These buns are soft and chewy, tender yet strong. They can cradle juicy meat without instantly becoming a soggy mess, but they won’t break your teeth, either. That little bit of salt on the top complements just about everything. Want to use these for hamburger buns? Make big rounds. Or shape them into hot dog buns. Or as rolls that you can use for sliders, or simply slice open to add butter.
They keep great in a sealed container for a few days, and also freeze and thaw in a fabulous way.
Trust me, once you make these buns, you’ll never settle for the grocery store stuff again.
My occasional round-up of posts from Novelocity, where a bunch of up-and-coming novelists (including me!) talk books and more. Join the conversation!

“The book dies a real death for me when I write the last word. I have a little sorrow and then go on to a new book which is alive. The line of books on the shelf are to me like very well embalmed corpses.”
