The Yap Fights Through

Well, I'm back from TusCon and have many wild stories to share. Which I was going to do earlier in the week. Only, as my Hook Me Up! subscribers already know, my wireless somethingorother (technical term), in a bold move destined to make me want to tear my hair out and actually cry, gave up the good fight and died. Leaving me with no internet connectivity.


We'll all pause a moment while the enormity of that situation descends on everyone.

Horrified moment of silence over, I'm still awaiting connectivity at the Casa and am currently huddled at the Chicklet's Bachelorette Pad attempting to get some, you know, work done. Laugh with me. There is no chair in the study at this precise time, and my netbook cannot, despite everyone in Tech Support's best efforts, connect wirelessly over here. So, I and the SHORT ethernet cable are making do. The sacrifices I make to keep all of mah darlings up to date just don't bear contemplation.

But what does bear contemplation is the tonnage that's going on this week. I was going to parcel it out for you, but under the less-than-stellar circumstances, you're gonna get it all in one go and like it. So, on with the countdown...

First up, the yap is large and in charge over at A Buckeye Girl Reads, where I answer more burning questions about "Alien Proliferation". There's also an international giveaway of "Alien in the Family", so don't miss out!

Next up, exciting news. "Alien in the Family" has made it to the semifinal round for best science fiction novel in the 2011 Goodreads Choice Awards! PLEASE go vote for it for Best Science Fiction novel now/again -- competition's fierce and if there's any hope of "Alien in the Family" making it to the next round, it lies with all of you.

Then, check out what Larissa's Bookish Life chose as her Top 5 Favorite Fictional Pets.

And now, on to the reviews. And we have a lot of reviews!

First up, hit Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell. She's done a double review of "Hotter Than Hell" and "The Disciple" both by Jemma Chase (aka moi). She's also done a review of "The New West 1 - When Josie Comes Home" by A.E. Stanton (also moi). Then see what Bitten by Paranormal Romance has to say about "The Disciple".

Next see what Giraffe Days and Paranormal Romance Fanatic have to say about "Touched by an Alien". Then see what Paranormal Romance Fanatic thought of "Alien Tango".

Our hit parade now takes us to and the Monthly Aspectarian, where Jacqueline Lichtenberg reviews "Alien in the Family" in her "Science Fiction & the Art of Storytelling" column.

Last but in NO way least, check out what I Smell Sheep and Larissa's Bookish Life thought of "Alien Proliferation". Remember to do your girl a solid and pre-order "Alien Proliferation" (releasing Dec. 6th) and "Alien Diplomacy" (releasing Apr. 3rd). Yes, they matter, even less than a month before release day. (LESS THAN A MONTH!)

In Person Reminder: I'll be presenting at the Free Fall Writer's Workshop this Saturday, Nov. 19th. It's a great day of fun education, for aspiring authors and readers who just want to know how we do it. (We do it with a lot of the 3 C's -- coffee, chocolate, and Coca-Cola, but that's not important now...)

Amazingly enough, that's it. But tune in next time, when we find out if Gini gets to be connected to the rest of the world or if she has to hide out in her Cave in the Casa, alone and lonely. Until then, peace out, li'l gangstas, and let's be readers out there!

Thanks Brandy! It goes up, it goes down. It lulls me into a false sense of security, and then insidiously forces a restart for no good reason. The Interwebz - dey is run by EBOL!
