I'm giving away a copy of Sybil's Garage 6 on my blog.  Deadline - this friday. 

Check it out, won't you?

I've just sold my story "Shatter Shatter" to the fine folks at Brain Harvest (An Almanac of Bad Ass Speculative Fiction). Here is a teaser:

"My real name is Cherie, but you can call me Cherry or I might just rake your face. My nails are epic weapons, like napalm or dynamite. You already know about glass hearts, but I bet you've never seen one, not even your own."

I'm pretty thrilled, not least because Brain Harvest is an awesome new market.

The story should be up sometime in August. I'll post when I know more. In the mean time, why not browse some of the stories there? They are all under 750 words, and are all pretty badass.

It's an online storage site. I use it to keep updated drafts of my stories, as I am frequently writing on different computers. And I *always* lose my USB thumb drives. It's very unfortunate.

I was skeptical at first, but then I took the leap, and gave this site a try, partly because of some great reviews I've read about it on Lifehacker(.org).

So I wanted to point it out to anyone reading this who might need an extra bit of security.

Best part? Totally free. 2GB of storage for no $$$. That works for me, because I mostly just have my manuscript drafts there, and those take up like, a whisper of space.

So, if you want to try it out, I really recommend it. Also, if you would sign up through THIS link, we both get extra space. For Free!!

It's not for everyone, I know, but maybe you want to give it a try. Let me know what you think.

Auto-tune the news #5 dropped today.

Okay, I was waiting for this for a few weeks now, and when I saw it came out today, I was instantly in a good mood, like when a cd you've been waiting three years for finally comes out (or, I guess, leaks to The Pirate Bay).

When you find something that you love, you should overdose on it. Watch this video 15 times. Don't stop reading Magic For Beginners, take a cross-country road trip with the one(s) you love.

Here's the video at least, the rest is up to you:

Katie Couric lays it down, and that beat is hot like hydrogen fusion on nitrous oxide. POP.

So I was going to write something clever this morning, but instead I have to run off to work. Have to be a Mad Scientist until 12, but it's not so bad because we're going to be launching the rockets we built yesterday. NASA camp rocks.

Novel progress - Don't have time for the little graphic, but I only got about 200 words done.

Short Story progress - wrote 1100 words on a new short story last night. Progress!

Question of the day: Okay, it's been 15 years, does ANYONE have ANY idea what the song "Glycerine" by Bush is about???

(Bad 90's music video alert.)
