It is April.
It is spring.
It snowed this weekend.
Which, y’know. C’mon.
*points flamethrower at sky*
It didn’t stick or anything but ye gods, really? Snow? MRGH.
But — but! — I thought, maybe this is a good opportunity to take the camera out into the hoary spitting hatemist and see if I can grab some interesting photos.
The photos below are the result. A small set of them! Behold! BEHOLD.
First, though, let’s get some administrative stuff outta the way.
Tomorrow, I’ll be at Seton Hill talking about writing and life and Star Wars and really whatever the hell you want me to talk about. I will also sign books. I will also sign babies. I will also dance seductively. It is at 7pm and you should totally go and hey look here are the details. If you’re in western PA or Ohio or West Virginia or can beam down using teleport technology, I hope to see you. BE THERE OR BE SCRUTINIZED AND SHAMED.
Then — here is a review Kira Jessup did of Blackbirds, which features the sentence: “I devoured this book in less than a day.” Which is really the best thing anyone can say about my books, that they couldn’t help but be a bookish glutton, shoving it into their imagination-holes as fast as humanly possible. People often ask what book of mine they should start with, and though the answer varies wildly depending on what kinds of books you like, really the real answer is, start with Blackbirds. I think that’ll tell you if you like my work or not.
Finally, hackers have been in the news recently, what with taking hospital data hostage and all that Panama Papers stuff. If that sort of thing interests you, I suggest peeping Zer0es, my novel about hackers going up against a sinister self-aware NSA surveillance program.
NOW, THE PHOTOSET. (Click images to view on Flickr.)
