Taunting the Internets

Two quick reminders first:

1. BSC Review will be giving away a set of Goblin Quest miniatures on June 29.  Enter now!  You know you want ‘em.

2. I’m giving away a copy of Stepsister over at SF Novelists.


Dear Anton Strout - I seem to have sold a werejaguar story. With zombies in it (sort of). You wish you were as cool as me.</p>

Dear John Scalzi - Cherry Coke Zero is far superior to regular old Coke Zero.

Dear Catherine Shaffer - Didn’t I ever tell you I was polycatherous?

Dear Alethea Kontis - <Dr. Drakken>You think your feet are all that, but they’re not!</Dr. Drakken>

Dear Cory Doctorow - Information does not want to be free.  Information wants to be bound, gagged, and spanked hard.

Dear Robert - Hey look, I found you some legs!

Dear Wil Wheaton - I know your secret.  I know why you keep missing Penguicon, and why Amazon still won’t ship me my copy of Just a Geek after three freaking months.  “Wil Wheaton” is just a Pixar-produced computer animation!

Dear Elizabeth Bear - Actually, never mind.  I’ve seen those climbing muscles.  You could kill me with your toes.  No taunt for you!

Dear Paul Abbamondi - Don’t think I’ve forgotten.  Your time is coming, goblin-hater!

Dear Random Person who’s feeling left out because you didn’t get a taunt - Maybe that omission is the taunt!  Ha!  Bow before my meta-taunting skills!

"Information does not want to be free. Information wants to be bound, gagged, and spanked hard."

Um, right. :-)

Yes, they are.

And ditto Cherry Coke Zero. Now if only more places actually SOLD it, that'd be super.

I need *something*. There's strong disagreement as to what exactly that something is.

That one to Cory caused a spittake :) I never remember that coffee and LJ posts are a dangerous combination. At least none got on my keyboard.

taunting
a little over caffinated today?

Re: taunting
Overdeadlined. This last rewrite will require about 3000 words a day, and then page proofs for Mermaid showed up as well. This is me de-stressing :-)

I love the icon. I've used it a bunch myself. ::bows::

Loved Cory and Anton's!

::Grin:: It makes me ridiculously happy that I was able to legitimately work werejaguars into a story and actually sell the thing.

And if I'd been thinking, I would have named one after him! D'oh!

Please make sure they send my portion of the proceeds of the werejaguar(tm) story to the correct address, okay?

Werejaguar(tm)is a product of HineStrout, a multimedia consortium dedicated to bringing you the finest in lackluster products.

Coincidentally, this is the first DAW antho I've done where the pay is below SFWA pro rates.

I blame you.

Well! Somebody ate his Wheaties today! Thank you for the bracing taunt. You caught me off guard this time, but I'd watch my back if I were you!

Bring it on, Shaffer!

I'm not feeling left out. I feel complicit in your taunts of Scalzi and Wheaton, therefore I laugh my tauntbunny laugh.

Feeling a little frisky today, are we? :-)

It started with taunting Anton, but you know how these things grow :-)

BTW, *vanilla* coke zero beats the pants off of cherry or plain zero.

As long as it's not that nasty chocolate cherry coke stuff they put out a while back. That was truly nasty.

For some reason I feel relieved that I escaped the vile taunts of the Master.

Just remember, all this work is an embarrassment of riches. It means the writing career keeps moving forward.

Definitely. I'm delighted to have one book in production and another under contract. It does make me a little crazy at times, though :-)
