2) For the first time in my life, one of my works has over a 1000 reviews on Goodreads -- 70% are 4 or 5 stars. Although, 20 people out there gave me the 1 star treatment. So, you may be taking a bit of a risk...
3) Scholastic sent me a copy of the US Entertainment Weekly magazine that has a full-page ad for The Call in it. Wow. When this is all over, I won't be able to complain that my publishers never did anything for me.
This weekend, I got to take part in both Octocon aaaand, DeptCon2. Both were incredible. I'll pipe in with more details on these next week, but for now, I want the organisers to know that they bask in my praise like great sharks in the ocean of awesome...
I hope everybody is well! I'll write about my current reading soon. Just trying to catch up a bit.
