Doings

I feel like I live in the Wonka-verse: "So much time, so little to do.  Wait, switch that, reverse it."  Between writing for the SFWA Bulletin, guest blogging for Magical Words, writing submission letters for my authors, pitch letters to my subagents, my own fiction, Gina's Gems, etc., this one sometimes gets a bit shorted.  But at least I let you know when my pithy posts are published elsewhere.  (Hi, I'm Lucienne, I'm an alliteration addict.)  Thus, I'm pleased to say that my second query blog is up today at Magical Words.  Part I, for those who missed it, is here.

I'm also tickled pink (seriously) that Mysterious Galaxy, a fabulous specialty bookstore that clearly likes alliteration as much as I do, based on their webpage subtitle of "Books of Martians, Murder, Magic, Mayhem & More," put ReVamped among their small and independent press highlights!

In exceptionally awesome news, the Fort Worth Weekly did a fantastic feature on bestseller and brilliant author Rachel Caine, which you can click here to see.  She looks good goth, don't you think?  This just in: a great write-up as well from the El Paso Times!

In other news, two new authors are burning up bestseller lists: Vicky Dreiling with her debut HOW TO MARRY A DUKE and N.K. Jemisin with the mass market release of her acclaimed debut THE HUNDRED THOUSAND KINGDOMS.  Huge congrats to you both!
