There will be three paper ARCs of NIGHT SHIFT anthology given away at tomorrow’s signing. We bought those tear-away raffle tickets, so hopefully this will go smoothly. 🙂
I don’t know how this happened. I like colors. I typically don’t like grey clothes, but somehow here I am. You can’t see it, but the soft capri pants I’m wearing are grey too.
I took Kid 2 to the outlet mall the other day. By the way, American Apparel ads are creepy. Just thought I’d put that out there. The clothes are okay, but the ads are creepy and we had a lovely discussion about sexual exploitation of men and women, because AA is an equal opportunity offender. There were more ads with girls than with boys, but boy ads were also creepy. It’s interesting because some things that I get really disturbed by completely pass her okay check because her reasoning is different from mine. But anyway, back to shirts.
I was going to buy some cheap T-shirts. I have very specific needs: they must be light (fabric, not color) and soft. I love printed T’s but most of them are too thick and heavy. I also prefer a V-neck or a wide neck. I found some T-shirts. Forty bucks a piece.
I’m pretty hard on T shirts. I cook, I do housework, I bathe pets, I spill things on myself… Forty bucks is out of the question. What I need is a place where I can order a bunch of different, relatively light-weight not-grey colorful T-shirts, preferably on-line. Does anybody have any suggestions where such T-shirts can bought for a woman of plump size? 😉
Sarah of Smart Bitches Trashy Books and Jane of Dear Author run an awesome monthly podcast. Unfortunately their latest podcast didn’t record and Sarah asked on Twitter if anybody Scyped. I Scype with my father so I volunteered to chat about books with her. Gordon wasn’t here to restrain me from saying unprofessional things, so I went to weird places with it. Poor Sarah did her best to steer me back on to the path, but I think she gave up about halfway and just started laughing. So if you’re in the mood for unintentionally hilarious TMI podcast, here it is.
Tyrone glanced at the gathering. “Most of these assholes are here every day. Good luck getting their attention though. Half of them are drunk, half of them are hung over, and the other half don’t give a shit.”
When you’re a writer, sometimes the simplest things shortcircuit you. This is Hyatt Regency Hotel in Atlanta which was used as the inspiration for the Mercenary Guild. I’ve spent half and hour yesterday trying to find the right way to describe the balconies. I am still not happy with it but I have to move on.
