New Year Round Up

Happy New Year! This blog is a follow-up to previous blog entries in which some of you might (or might not) have had an interest. First, Phoenix Pix, a new-ish small press that occasionally gives away copies of its publications as a promotion, is now giving away free copies of my novella ACT ONE as a download, during the month of January. You can order one at www.PPickings.com There are instructions and download link The Coupon Code for January is 9992365.

Walter Jon Williams and I now have eight accepted participants for Taos Toolbox, the two-week intensive workshop for fantasy and science fiction that we are teaching at Taos, NM in July. Judging from the quality of the submission manuscripts., this is going to be a very promising group of writers indeed. If you're interested, go to taostoolbox.com for more information.

My story for the Poul Anderson tribute volume was accepted by editors Gardner Dozois and Greg Bear. I don't know when the volume will be out.

And on a personal note (as if one's writing wasn't personal!), Jack Skillingstead and I are engaged and will be married in February in Las Vegas. NOT, however, by an Elvis impersonator!

Congratulations on all the good news, especially your engagement!

I think, though, your blog announcement may have been scooped by Locus Magazine...

"She recently moved to Seattle WA, home of her fiancé, writer Jack Skillingstead."

Congrats. Jack is indeed one lucky man, Nancy. I suspected from the ever so often mention and the photos that perhaps something was up.

Good for the both of you.

Respects,
