aw, cool!  

I have, it seems, been nominated as a Favorite Paranormal Author of the Year by readers at Bitten By Books. So’s Jim been, for that matter. Voters are allowed two votes each, so if you like, go vote! The poll is on the right-hand side, scroll down past the ads. :)

eta: and oh, hey! I see that URBAN SHAMAN made it onto the 101 best fantasy novels list from a few weeks ago! How splendid, thank you guys!

Well, I'll be sheep-dipped. I didn't know you were published when I friended you, I just liked your Bujold fanfic :-)

Now I'll have to go buy some of your stuff to see if you're that fascinating a writer all the time! Thanks for including your website info in your userinfo page!

I've, er, never even thought about writing Bujold fanfic...

Okay, then I don't know how I came to friend you. Not that I'm changing my mind, mind you... I just can't remember. Meanwhile, I'm buying "Walking Papers" from Powell's online, and checking your writing out :-)

...okay, I've looked back over your postings, and figured it out, not that this really matters to anyone but me. You did a really good post about e-piracy and e-publishing on 8/28/09 and a bunch of my friends linked to it on Facebook and at bar.baen.com. I liked it enough that I friended you on LJ, hoping for more of the same; and instead, I'm reading your urban fantasy (or is that paranormal romance??). The Bujold fanfic was me confusing you with someone else, abject apologies.

Aah, yes, I think I picked up a few readers with that blog post. Sorry, I don't usually hit the, mmm, shall we say political, side of the publishing industry, but I do hope you enjoy the books. :)

Although there were other authors I read and liked on the poll, I HAD to vote for you. I've already read the first 4 twice.

I have to wait a while for Walking Dead to ease out of my memory. I really enjoyed the "ride" in this one.
