Wow. A LOT is happening today.
First off, my friends Jaym Gates and Erika Holt put together an anthology of zombie erotica–yes, zombie erotica–called Rigor Amortis, which launched today amid much fanfare and celebration from fans of the undead smut genre (which they may have just invented.) I ordered my copy; you can do the same right here. I have SO MANY friends in this book, and I love seeing their names in the TOC. What an awesome project.
Secondly, today is the launch of a group blog that I’m a part of, called Inkpunks. Go check it out. We’ll be posting Tuesdays and Thursdays on a rotating basis (I think my first post is the middle of October.) Sandra explains it best in our inaugural post. I hope you’ll find the site fun and useful.
io9 announced today that they will be hosting the Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy, and the first episode of the podcast’s new life will feature an interview with none other than George R.R. Martin. I passed the podtern torch on to Aidan Moher a while ago, which was sad for me, but as GGG is now a sponsored podcast I get to stay involved a little bit by recording the ad spots for them.
Lastly, I learned today that ARCs of Way of the Wizard are out in the world. People are reading it. Unfortunately it was probably printed off the uncorrected proof, in which my story had some fairly major formatting issues, but c’est la vie. I got the final corrected proof today and it looks beautiful. The official release date is still November, but it sounds like it will be available at WFC at the end of October.
Whew! That’s a lot of news. It was a great day for a whole lot of people I adore. Congratulations to all of Rigor Amorticians! I’m proud to know you and have loved watching the book climb the Amazon Horror chart today (#41 last I heard! Amazing.)
