Things and Stuff #11

Things and Stuff is a grab-bag of things that've been on my mind this week. In this edition: blog bus, Thrones music, raven noises, NetGalley, baby Superman

Thing 1: Starting up the blog tour bus
Emails are going out in a steady trickle. They're actually coming back, too. I'm going on a blog tour! It'll take place throughout September and October. I'll do a whole big schedule post... when there's a schedule.

(The blog tour bus is a refitted W7. It's had a wash and a fresh coat of paint, but it still smells faintly of old chips.)

All aboard for excitement and adventure and really wild things! And Muswell Hill. (C) Wikipedia

Thing 2: this here youtube link

Thing 3: quoth the raven: wakkawakkawakka

This raven is actually producing these sounds. This is a true thing that ravens can really do. This particular video is really funny. Now imagine one rocking up to your bedroom window in the middle of the night and squawking out your name...

Thing 4: NetGalley
Not only has Skulk gone live on NetGalley this week, but it's also featured in their UK Top Ten Must Reads for October! Also, they called Meg 'superb'! Eeeeeeeeeeee!

Thing 5: JL8
Another webcomic recommendation. This week, an alternate universe in which Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Power Girl, Martian Manhunter, Flash and Green Lantern are all in primary school together and it's adorable.

  1. I just finished the ARC from NetGalley and I really enjoyed it. Burned through it in less than two days. Meg is easily one of my favorite new YA protagonists. I'm still working on my Goodreads review, but wanted to let you know how much I loved the book.


    1. Ahh, thanks! I'm really glad you enjoyed Skulk and that you liked Meg! :D


The State of the Rosie

What am I writing? Still working away on the gay Victorian gothic YA. This month, I have mainly been making things painfully awkward for my...
