A Trilogy In Three Months  

I had this insane idea this morning that it would be fun to write a trilogy in three months. It’s not actually possible, as I would need a good six hours of writing time daily, and I’m doing well to get two, but for a bright shining moment I thought “Wouldn’t it be neat to get that far ahead?” (As it is I’m already trying to figure out if it’s humanly possible to revise ANGLES and write another YA book while my mother-in-law, whose stated interest while in Dublin is babysitting, is here. It’s not. But wishful thinking persists. :))

I have 1 copy of HANDS OF FLAME left to send to somebody, and about eight copies of HOUSE OF CARDS left. If you’d like a signed copy of HoC (and/or the last copy of HoF) for the cost of shipping it/them, leave a comment and I shall contact you with the necessary details!

I need to order a polystyrene head. I think while I’m at it I may helpfully order the couple things I asked for for my birthday. :)

Okay. I thought I had other things to say but I can’t think of them right now, so I’m going to go work. *zoomz*

I would like both, but I don't know how much shipping to the us would be.

$14!

for both or each? but that is a price I can handle how should I do this? I am trying to own all of your books in trade paperback but when that particular series came out I couldn't afford to purchase it and I read it at the library.

For both. If you'd like them, please Paypal the $14 to the email address open AT mizkit DOT com, and include your LJ username and mailing address!

if you find a US-based source for a polystyrene head; let me know? I and a couple of other knitters in my knitting circle have been doing hats (and I'm about to felt my first hat) and agreed that such a thing would be useful.....i'm also asking Tara M (the costume teacher from UAF) if she knows a source stateside.

I ordered from amazon.co.uk, myself...

You did notice I said it's not possible, right? :) *fans you too* :)
A large duckburger_eater on May 24th, 2011 04:34 pm (UTC)
Yeah, but this is a thought you had! You're all "if I had six hours a day..." That freaks me out.
kitmizkit on May 24th, 2011 04:36 pm (UTC)
I probably still couldn't actually manage 300K in that time, if it makes you feel better. I, er, think my personal best for a month is more like about 80K. So it'd probably take me 4 months, if I was totally on a roll. :)
A large duckburger_eater on May 24th, 2011 04:51 pm (UTC)
Heh. I think I might be able to do half that, about 40K, if I had an additional month to really prepare the narrative, extra support from my family, and a world-wide internet outage. But probably not. :)
kitmizkit on May 24th, 2011 04:53 pm (UTC)
Yes, but it's widely known that I'm a complete freak. :)

You're probably out of Hands of Flame by now, but if you still have copies of House of Cards left, I'll take one of those. :)
kitmizkit on May 26th, 2011 05:22 am (UTC)
actually I found some copies of HoF upstairs, so if you want both I can do that. :) Paypal $14 to the email address open AT mizkit DOT com, and include your LJ username and mailing address!

If you have any left, I'd take one of each. I bought them secondhand, being broke at the time, so I'd like to pass them on to people I know will luff you.
kitmizkit on May 26th, 2011 05:23 am (UTC)
I found more copies of HoF upstairs, so I shall add you to the list. :)
Geek of Weird Shit: sensualgows on May 26th, 2011 01:39 am (UTC)
Oh, and . . .
while I’m at it I may helpfully order the couple things I asked for for my birthday. :)

. . . you may want to wait on one or two of these things. I'm just sayin'.
