Starting off Sunday with this news: The new Monkey Queen book, The Crown Of Kylthena, is now available on DriveThruFiction! In case you missed Michiko and Beth’s latest adventure, head over here for a full list of buying links! More after the cut.
Quick update: Work has started on the paperback edition of The Crown Of Kylthena. Hopefully, I’ll have proofs in hand in the next two weeks, and after that, I can announce a release date. Also, sorry for the lack of posts last week; I will try to catch up this week.
Meanwhile, I wanted to thank Meri Amber, who featured me with several other fine people on a post on her blog last week! Check that out, and then poke around her website if you’re not familiar with her music. She’s one of my very favorite geek pop acts, and if you’re wondering why…try this song out.
The Doubleclicks have a new nifty video series called “You Should Write A Song About That,” where they interview someone and then write a song about something the interviewee suggests. This first installment is about Anandibai Joshi, and you’ll find out more by watching the video below.
Here’s a brand new (lyrically, anyway) track from the PDX Broadsides! Recommended, especially for Labyrinth fans.
And finally: Lucia Fasano (reminder: her Radio Silence album is quite good) claims that she put together this Squirrel Girl costume from things she found in her closet. I’ll keep her secret identity quiet if you will. [winks]
The Sunday catchup returns, with this announcement: The sixth Monkey Queen book, The Crown Of Kylthena, will be published this coming Tuesday, October 11!
“Whatever it takes to rescue Beth, I’ll do it.”
The Crown of Kylthena is a legendary relic from the Lost Lands of Earth. The stories say it brings great power to its wearer. Michiko Koyama, the hero known as the Monkey Queen, is sent to retrieve the crown along with her girlfriend and partner in adventure Beth McGill, only to find that it’s been stolen. They’ll have to hop from world to world and team up with the enigmatic wizard Alasdair Sterling to get it back…but can he be trusted?
And even if they find the crown, the secrets it holds could tear Beth away from Michiko…or lead to their doom.
Sunday catchup! Sorry for the lack of posts this week; life gets in the way sometimes. Normal service should resume this week. After the cut…nerd music stuff, including a concert review! (Warning: Lots of photos, links and videos ahead.) Continue reading
Sunday catchup time! Next week will mark the two-year anniversary of the official debut of the first Monkey Queen book, Of Introductions And Abductions, and there will very likely be a soppy blog post on the 19th. But there may also be a sale…so stay tuned! More after the cut. Continue reading
A small announcement to start the Sunday catchup: Willow Wednesdays will be taking the coming week off, as Wednesday is when post #450 to this blog will be going up. Willow Wednesdays won’t be going away for good; there’s still lots of great art by Willow to share! It’ll be back on the 24th.
After the cut: A geek music update! Continue reading
Take the awesome geek-folk-rock duo The Doubleclicks and their cool take on the Ghostbusters theme. Add some clever video editing, using footage from all the trailers for the upcoming movie. Result? Something verging on amazing that’s loads of fun, and worth watching.
Sunday means catching up, and here we go! First, and you’ll have to forgive me for the short notice, The Doubleclicks are holding another one of their great livestream shows today, starting at noon Pacific / 3:00 PM Eastern / 8:00 PM GMT / 9:00 PM CET! This one is going to be on Twitch instead of YouTube, so click here if you’re on a computer or download the app if you’re using a smartphone or tablet, and make sure to set up an account before the show starts. Prizes, possible surprise guests, and the chance of seeing a grown woman dressed as a banana! More after the cut.
Tomorrow is the official release date of the hardcover collection of Teri S. Wood’s Wandering Star comic, and she’s got a fun promotion going: Buy the book, leave a review on Amazon, and you can win one of more than 50 sketch cards! You can get the full details on Wandering Star and the contest here.
The great nerd-folk trio The PDX Broadsides have just released a new song to go along with the release of David D. Levine’s upcoming novel Arabella Of Mars. The song is called “Take The Air”, and you can hear it on their website and download it on Bandcamp. It’s free, which is way cool, but you can also leave a tip, which is also way cool. And check out their music – I like it quite a bit. (They were behind the “Miyazaki Dreams” song and video I linked to a while back.)
And finally: This could be fun.
On this sad day, my thoughts are with the survivors of this morning’s tragedy in Orlando, the families and friends and loved ones of the victims, and the good people there, especially in their LGBT community. I hold out hope that someday, we can finally fully accept each other’s differences and move beyond hate and fear and violence.
Happier topics after the cut. Continue reading
