. . . the setting, participants, and people who visited made it so. There was no big stress, it was a comfy, intimate venue, we brought tea, cookies, and music, we had our own kitchen, bathroom, mini-lounge area and Dalek (yes, full-grown Dalek—inert, thankfully), a breeze coming in through the windows, good conversation, and honestly, it was really nice to see all the genuine smiles.
Very, very different from doing a 50K+ attendee event, a mid-sized show, or even a mid-sized genre show. It was plain nice!
Happening this SATURDAY, beginning at 12pm, appearing will be the lovely Dru Pagliassotti of The Clockwork Heart series, Jaymee Goh of Steampunk World, Madeleine Holly-Rosing of the Boston Metaphysical Society comic book series, Elizabeth Watasin (that’s me) of the Dark Victorian series, and Patrick Scullin of Pandamonium!

Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1499465090306573/ Come and have fun!
Progress: I think MEDUSA may end up in the 36K+words range, which is . . . very roughly, 160+pp as a book. I’ve barely half down of all plot placeholders. It’s a matter of getting all pertinent bits writ, then I flesh it all out. Even the end scene may get a truer ending after the ‘ending’, like with ICE DEMON. We’ll see. Medusa herself is fascinating as a psychological and cultural study, which is not quite the same exploration I did with Hecate in SUNDARK, that being more a mythical/religious portrayal. Besides the fact that as a chthonic goddess, she’s plain frightening.
I have to read through the interior and make sure everything’s as it should be, then order a bunch for~~~
the Clockwork Couture authors signing, which is (peers at calendar), NOV 15th, in cahoots with a Clockwork holiday craft faire, so come and get stocking stuffers and gifts. ICE DEMON will also be available at Loscon, Thanksgiving weekend.
