Oh, I see.  
Ah. My Wordpress is no longer propagating to LJ. That explains why no one admitted to sitting there a moment trying to remember, as I did, if they got that email, when they read Friday's Questionable Content.

It also explains the far more astonishing lack of volunteers to eat the totally inadequate fudge I made yesterday, which is in fact absolutely fine fudge by any rational standards, but I do not hold myself to rational standards when it comes to baking and candy-making. :)

Since I'm doing a tiny catch-up post, then, I may as well mention that the CE Murphy Short Story Commission is resting at a comfortable $125, which is a quite low and reasonable price to beat if you want me to write you a story of your very own. By Christmas. :)

Unrelated to anything, I am once more trying to justify the purchase of the J. Peterman Equestrian Coat. I can't justify it. It's $230. I could possibly justify it if I did not already own 3 awesome coats of varying degrees of length, and if I did not have patterns & fabric for two more, and the desire to have/make two further ones after those two (both of which have the waist-high kick pleat that *really* suckers me in for the Equestrian Coat), but I can't, as it stands, justify it. Look, I admit it: I have a coat problem. But as Ted says, at least I *wear* them! And there are certainly far more alarming addictions than Long Coat Addictions. :)

We're verging on finally releasing "Easy Pickings" into the wild! All we have to do is, um, learn how to upload it to Amazon and other places. Which actually I have zero idea of how to do. It can't be that hard, can it? (...although it may be less intuitive than I think it should be. Um.)

Right. Anyway! We're planning to release it on the 15th, and in the meantime, here's the cover!

We discussed the Gary Phenomenon over on Twitter, anyway. :)

Yes. You assured me I was not alone. :)

And Jeph Jacques was pleased!

Was he? I missed that. That's grand!

I retweeted something from him on the subject a few hours ago:

Also, it's neat how I got a bunch of people to check if the Gary Phenomenon was actually real. I wish it were!

I can send you cookies, if you send me fudge :).
Oh, and the cover is nice. I am looking forward to read it, but I really hope you will put it up on Smashwords too, since Amazon adds between 50 cent and 3 dollar to the price for me. *glares at Amazon*
mbernardimbernardi on December 5th, 2011 08:04 pm (UTC)
Agreed, upload to Smashwords for multiple ebook format sales, and lower cost than Amazon.

I also found myself wondering about the QC email.... :) And would've happily volunteered for fudge.... :)

Dude! It's the J Peterman Equestrian coat! Of course you need to buy it! And it's /only/ $230! If they made my size I would so have one! J. Peterman. Equestrian. Coat.

Oy. Buy the damn coat already. You'll look fabulous and be warm.

There are too many things to comment on in this post. Seriously.

Yay, Gary!

Mmm, fudge.

Wish I could bid this time around on the short story commission, but I'll try to remember to pimp it out once I'm home and can broadcast the word on FB.

That coat is divine.

Eeee, long awaited crossover! Can't wait!
