ROSEMARY AND RUE, coming soon to a bookstore near you...

I am pleased* to announce that the release date for Rosemary and Rue, the first of the October Daye books, has been officially confirmed and announced as September 2009. Yes. Nine months from now. On store shelves. Actual store shelves, not just shelves on the bookstore inside my head (they have very affectionate store cats).

Watch this space for news, updates, contests, giveaways, and hyperventilation. But for right now, I resort to the obvious:

HOLY SHIT OH MY GOD SEPTEMBER 2009 THAT'S LIKE PRACTICALLY TOMORROW THAT MEANS I'LL HAVE BOOKS AT OVFF AND WORLD FANTASY AND OH MY GOD AND I CAN'T BREATHE AND MADE OF WIN AND DINO DANCE PARTY TIME FOR EVERYBODY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ahem. That is all.

(*By 'pleased,' we mean 'incandescent with glee and hasn't stopped squealing for the past hour.' It's a specialized definition.)

Random iTunes shuffle, how you represent me.

A clip of me speaking during my BayCon 2006 concert (the year I was Toastmistress) just came on my iTunes, which is eternally set to shuffle:

"To say that we're eclectic is a little bit of an over-statement...understatement...it's a statement. I'm wearing three-inch heels and I just ran through the whole hotel in them, so really, I get to make any statement I want."

Sometimes it's good to be a Halloweentown Disney Princess. In other news, word of my publication date is spreading like wildfire, and the response has been incredibly awesome. If book sales are anything near as healthy and enthusiastic as congratulations, I'm going to be writing book nine before I know it!
