This year's first festival was a little bit hard for me. Usually I have the lovely An Tran as my other half. (Or as one of the Pirate Festival people called her: "My Better Half".) But she was not able to attend. So I had the dubious pleasure of setting up my tent ALL BY MYSELF! And I did it! I was ridiculously proud of myself. Check it out:
The next day at the festival, I changed up my look a bit. I did this for one very good reason: I also had to pack everything up. I was NOT going to do that in a gauzy skirt and oneshouldered top. Therefore, it was a day to wear my pirate bloomers and corset. I know it sound weird, but that outfit was much better for heavy lifting and moving about in. Also, a very sincere thank you to Curtis who graciously helped me pack my tent frame into my car. You were a real life saver!
Now here's my problem. I would love to incorporate my Sitnalta sequel into marketing efforts, and such for the first book. However, I have no idea what to call the darn thing. Furthermore, every time I try to tell people what it's about, I tend to babble. I am no good at blurbs. It all comes out like this: the coin is important. There is a bit of a love story. Sitnalta is a character in it. Can't say too much without giving important plot points away. Kralc! SPOILERS! Then I get this look from whomever I'm speaking to:
In other news, An and I are almost done edits on Ouroboros, and I'm really excited about this particular story. It was also a pain to name. For a while we were calling it The Short Story NOT Named "Fire". So, there's hope for me yet.
