ohio festival

I borrowed the Newsflesh books (loved them btw) from my library and someone was using My Little Pony Temp Tattoos as a bookmark. Also I suggested the Newsflesh books to a gal at work and she floored through them. She bought the audio version just to be able to listen to it on her hour drive to/from work. Thank you from a couple of people in Ohio for writing fantastic stories.

Yay!

Also, depending on where in Ohio you are, it might be relevant to your interests to know that I will be at the Ohio Valley Filk Festival this October.  It’s not a traditional SF con, because it is a filk con, but there will be a book signing, and I always* adore meeting people.

(*For values of “always” that are not at 6am in the hotel Starbucks no really why are you making sounds with your face hole please stop I am but a simple alien plant invader, I cannot yet brain enough to understand you.)

As many of you may know already a Columbus Citizen and employee of Columbus Public Schools Chris Dodds, made a post to the Facebook page for Columbus Ohio’s Pride festival and Parade page, that called for the festival to be bombed on a scale of the Boston Marathon, stating that “All fags should be killed or at least re-located.” This is completely unacceptable and we need to take a stand and demand that this man not be allowed to spread this hate to the children in affiliation to Our school system.

As promised, this was my outfit for the Renaissance festival yesterday. I was in a hurry, so the outfit isn’t as complete as I would have liked, and I threw on my worst pair of wings. BUT. I still felt so lovely! (It is the absolute most precious things when I’m walking about and I here children exclaiming softly “faerie!”.) Next month, my outfit will be SO much better.
