Read the fic on AO3! <3

I am absolutely in love with my 2010 edition of A Handmaid’s Tale! My pet peeve is when publishers turn film and tv posters into book covers, so I had to search high and low to find this one due to the new series out at the moment on Hulu and Channel 4! (Shout out to wordery.com for hooking me up!) Can’t wait to start this one as a treat for after exams!
~for those of you asking I had my first one today and will be finished on the 22nd June!~

Hi Seanan, I'm just dropping by to sincerely thank you for offering your book for free, I haven't been able to afford any books lately and I haven't been able to visit a library where I live. It just brightened my day and I can't wait to read it once my semester finishes. I love your writing style and hope to pick up more of your stories this summer when I'm able to. Thanks again and I hope you're having a lovely day!

Yay, thank you!

But again, lovely as it is to get praise (I love being praised as much as the next author), I didn’t offer my book for free.  As a traditionally published author, I have effectively “leased” that right to Tor.com (or DAW, or Orbit, or…) for the duration of our contract.  I can hand out physical copies until I run out, but I do not have the legal authority to distribute electronic copies of my own work.  I’m okay with that: it’s a trade-off I made in exchange for being able to eat.

This wonderful, amazing, generous giveaway is entirely possible because Tor.com said “hey, we want to do this, are you cool with it.”  So please, thank my publisher for making the book available.  Our publishers often get blamed for things: it’s nice to give them the credit for a change.

Back to school mbti
  • Summer has blown by and I literally start junior year at a brand new school tomorrow morning (8/15) so I thought I'd do this to distract from the nerves : 0
  • ISFP: Picks the coolest patterns and designs for all of their school supplies.
  • ISFJ: Is writing themselves positive and motivational notes to put in their lunch box for when they're feeling overwhelmed halfway through the day.
  • ESFP: Keeps telling people how much they're dreading school but everyone knows THEYRE SUPER EXCITED.
  • ESFJ: That person who takes forever getting ready because they agonize over which shirt matches their skin tone.
  • INFP: Keeps having school-related nightmares and also daydreaming about their crush.
  • INFJ: Makes themselves a clorox bleach cocktail whenever someone mentions school. Also blogging about it.
  • ENFP: Is literally an emotional tornado. Who knows what they'll do or say. This is a very unstable time and they will likely spend the first week after school starts cringing and over analyzing.
  • ENFJ: Has been practicing new makeup and hairstyles for this year. Also has prepared exactly what they'll say when people ask them how their summer was and things like that.
  • ISTP: Is taking their video games out of the cases one by one and kissing them goodbye either because they'll get taken away for bad grades or because they'll be too busy to play.
  • ISTJ: Is spending the last week of summer locked in their room alone mentally preparing for the chaos.
  • ESTP: Doesn't even know school is starting. Probably going to show up late the first day and not have done their summer reading.
  • ESTJ: Has been prepping for school all summer. They're a semester ahead and can't wait to rub it in. Mwahahaha.
  • INTP: Doesn't care about school at all either way...maybe a little bummed they can't sleep in anymore.
  • INTJ: They haven't stopped complaining about school since August began. (They'll actually be kind of glad to get back to a routine though)
  • ENTP: Is super excited to get back and learn stuff and do debate team and whatever other activities they're involved in. (Also upset about no more sleep though)
  • ENTJ: Is making voodoo dolls of their enemies.
  • summer 2013: *watches Free!* hmm well I didn't think I would like sports anime but that was pretty damn good
  • spring 2014: *watches Haikyuu!!* WOW I LOVE IT I LITERALLY CANNOT WAIT A WEEK FOR NEW EPISODES LET ME READ THE WHOLE MANGA IN THREE DAYS
  • summer 2014: ...well i caught up with Haikyuu!! and the next season of Free! hasn't started yet
  • summer 2014: *adds Kuroko no Basuke, Oofuri Furikabutte, and Yowamushi Pedal to my anime list*
  • summer 2014: fuck i'm in too deep
