We have a bit of downtime at work lately because of the holidays and just general slowness of sales. So I mentioned last post I'd deliver some fic recs. Here they are!

First, I'd like to mention the book I just read, The Art of Asking by Amanda Palmer. I wrote a review about it at my Wordpress blog, and I really encourage people to check it out, especially if you like Amanda's music, and even if you're a Neil Gaiman fan. It's got some interesting insight into his personal life. Plus, Amanda talks about her art and music processes which is kind of interesting.

Onto the fic recs! Sorry most of these are Twelfth Doctor and Clara. It's definitely my little obsession lately.

Twelve Nights by lotuskasumi - University AU with 12th Doctor and Clara. Combined two prompts from Tumblr: "can you maybe do a college AU where Clara and the Doctor are the only ones who stayed on campus for Christmas break?" and Clara and the Doctor being professors with a casual relationship who want more.

--This is really sweet and intriguing.

The Wedding Tree by antennapedia. Twelve x Clara. Mature situations. For once an encounter with an advanced civilization was not going to end in war, catastrophe, disaster, or even a pell-mell run toward something or away from something. It was just a lovely thank-you ceremony for the two of them, that's all, followed by a lovely night high up in a tree house. With one bed. Wait.

-- This story really sat with me for awhile after I read it, and then I reread it. The relationship and the imagery is really lovely and wonderfully done.

for you alone i will be weak by jotinf. Twelve x Clara. Mature situations.The Doctor and Clara reunite and carry on.

A continuation of sorts and a growing-old-together fic. Good relationship building, and Clara even sees her mother in the past. The ending is really bittersweet.

And for something completely different...

From the Thick of It...

Eat Our Hearts Alive Malcolm Tucker/Reader. “When is a monster not a monster? Oh, when you love it.” -- Caitlyn Siehl. || Non-linear snippets into the married life of you, the (female) Reader, and your husband, the (not actual) Dark Lord of Downing Street, Malcolm Tucker.
Rated M for language and sensual, or outright sexual, content.

This is such a guilty pleasure fic. But I have a secret kink for Malcolm Tucker so I gobbled this up. It's ongoing and really, really intriguing.

Please enjoy!

Cheers.

I did it!

Today I released my novel Unbridled!



Please find it here at Amazon Kindle! You can use it for any device that has the Amazon Kindle app or use it on the Amazon Kindle.

I'll be posting more links soon as they come for other websites.

I'd squee more but I'm exhausted. I was at a career fair downtown Chicago most of the day so I'm super tired, but I'll be promoting the book throughout the week, as well as catching up with my other stuff.

Seriously my life has been so much about this book lately my house looks like a disaster. Dishes aren't done, laundry is still not put away, and there's a cup with old coffee on it on my studio desk. Haha, does this mean I've finally truly become an author?

And OOH! I have my first review!

Just a small blog update! My cover will be publically released on Friday. I know I've shown you guys under f-lock but I think I'll be done tinkering with it by then for the official release. :)

Also, musings about dedications pages and then update on my blog's header bar. I love my blog more now! I need to add links and keep the social marketing going.

Woot woot!

The interactive Dan Brown plot generator:

Plug in a city and a sect, and our computer will do the rest.

Blurb - For those of you who can't wait another moment for Dan Brown's next blockbuster, Slate has your fix: an interactive Dan Brown plot generator that takes a city and a shadowy organization and spits out the plot of the next volume in the Robert Langdon chronicles. You can either select a specific city and/or group from the dropdown menus at the top of the tool or leave it on "random" and let the computer decide. Make sure to hit "refresh"—even the same city and group have multiple story lines.

Seem formulaic? That's because it is.

This place has some awesome prompts. You don't have to make a claim, and you can write in any fandom or for any character, as long as you follow the prompts. I'm going to go through the ideas I already have now and see if they fit the prompts. If not, maybe this will inspire me. You too, so check it out.

DON'T FORGET ABOUT MERLIN THIS SUNDAY!!!

It airs on NBC on Sunday at 7 p.m. central time for the first two episodes. If some of you are watching True Blood and want to check out Merlin, I hope you can DVR one of them and watch it later.

IT'S WORTH IT. IT'S A DAMN GOOD SHOW.

How can you give up a show with pretty like this?
