I just got the unfinished painting for the cover for Chance #2. OH. MY. *GOD*. I donno when I’m going to be able to show it off (not for a while yet, because the comic’s going to *preview* at San Diego, and *launch* in September, rather than launching in July as previously thought), but OH MY *GOD*. Responses from the handful of people I’ve shown it to have been: “Um. Jesus Christ”, “oh NICE”, “super hot”, “oh my GOD”, and “I’d buy that,” which I correctly interpreted as “I’d hit that,” at which point I was told by the guy who said “I’d buy that” that 1. he’d been restraining himself from saying “I’d hit that,” and 2. that I was such a boy. *laughs* Holy matrimony, Batman. *Damn*. O.O

Um. Right. In other news, THE PRETENDER’S CROWN is now officially the longest book I’ve ever written. Weirdly, it’s still 25 or something pages shorter than TQB, but the wordcount is higher. Must be less dialog or something.

Ted took me out of the house this afternoon and brought me to Fota Island, where we had a very nice time trundling around the wildlife park taking pictures of cute animals. So here, have a lemur:

ytd wordcount: 160,100
miles to Minas Tirith: 273.2

that photo totally calls out to be lol-lemur'd

I'm sort of thinking of the lemur photo as the Chance cover now.

Great photo! and what a perfect day for a trip to Fota. A work day and a lovely sunny day. Bliss!

That's an awefully cute pair of lemurs you've got there.

How weird is it that "I'd hit that" is used both for "I'd have sex with her" and "I'd punch that."

Yeah, I don't know where the "I'd hit that" for "I'd have sex with that" came from, but it seems to have crept into my vernacular, and it's an awful awful phrase. o.O

Bwahaha!! Ok, so like last week I started LOL'ing Lemurs... would you mind if I took a shot at yours? :)
kitmizkit on April 15th, 2008 10:24 pm (UTC)
*laugh* No, I don't mind. LEMURR REJECTS CEILING CAT? :)

Thanks! Hmm... I'll work on it and let you know. :)

Those are some creepy, creepy animals. Reminds me of the hyenas from first season Buffy.
Marithmarith on April 15th, 2008 10:53 pm (UTC)
Yes! That's what I was thinking, creepy evil hyenas. Only possibly alien as well.

Kit Kit who is your Chance publisher again, and how soon should we start jumping up and down on Lee's to preorder it? (They are not so good on the organization sometimes, so if we tell them in advance they may forget.)

Also, you are a sadist for describing but not posting the cover.

It's the Dabel Brothers (http://dabelbrothers.com/) and it's still too soon to be jumping on Lee's. I'll let people know when it's time, fear not. *beams* *hugs*

I haven't been to Fota in the longest time, and I don't think Herself has ever been. We're planning on going down and imposing ourselves on irishkate time this summer, and it's top of my list of places to go.
kitmizkit on April 16th, 2008 11:06 am (UTC)
My membership ran out and I lack funds right now to get another one, but one of my goals for this summer is to not only get another one but to use it enough to make having a membership /worth/ it, so if I've gotten it by the time you guys come down, I'll be glad to get you in the door. I love Fota. :)
