What’s Happening This Week: 8 — 14 October
There’s a few things happening this week so I thought I’d give you a headsup before the week and the events start kicking in.
Daughter of Blood, The Wall of Night Book Three
First off, as every week, my main focus will be on getting down with my bad self… I mean, working hard on the ms for Daughter of Blood, The Wall of Night Book Three.
As indicated in yesterday’s update, I am currently working on a Kalan section of the story and right now am having some fun with that. So: onwards, as the Holmes gentleman would have it.
Guest Blog Posts:
I have a couple of guest gigs coming up this week.
One is contributing to an SF Signal Mind Meld, and although the topic is under wraps at present, I will be cross-posting once it’s up on SF Signal. So watch this space for that, or if you follow me on Twitter, keep an eye out for the tweets.
The second has a definite date for this Thursday, October 11 when my guest post on “The Power of Names” will be appearing on Abhinav Jain’s Sons of Corax: Angels of Retribution blog as part of a guest author series, titled “Names: A New Perspective.” As I indicated in my introductory post on September 26, here, I had a lot of fun writing the post and am looking forward to seeing it go “live.”
So far the posts by the authors listed below—click on the names to read the posts—have all made for really interesting reading and I am very pleased to be in such good company.
- Myke Cole (Control Point — military SFF)
- Chris Holm (Dead Harvest & The Wrong Goodbye — urban fantasy/crime)
- Kim Curran (Shift — Young Adult SFF)
Tomorrow, for the Tuesday Poem, I’ll be featuring a poem by Christina Stachurski — and you can still read last week’s feature, Tim Jones’ “The stars, Natasha” here.
Sticking with poetry—although only for those living in or visiting Christchurch—the Canterbury Poets’ Collective Poetry in Performance Spring Series continues this Wednesday evening with guest poets, Elizabeth Smither, Emma Currie, and Marissa Johnpillai. From 6.30 pm at the CPSA hall, Christchurch Polytechnic on Madras Street.
(The programme for the full eight weeks is here.)
Celebrating Halloween with the Supernatural Underground
The Supernatural Underground is planning to celebrate Halloween with a grand giveaway of paranormal fantasy fiction. Details of “how”, “where” and “when” to enter should be available this week — I’ll be posting the information here once I have it.
