1. And in further news of actors being awesome, I see that Mark Ruffalo is lending his voice to the protests going on in Detroit about the reprehensible situation with the water shutoffs there. Thank you, Mr. Ruffalo.

    Because yeah, that right there? That’s a big mess of THAT AIN’T RIGHT, and I hope he and the rest of the protestors can get Detroit’s city leaders to listen.

     
  2. WELL DONE there, Mr. Turner. Well done indeed!

    Makes me proud to fly my Kili fangirl flag high! Anybody who says Hobbit!Movie!Kili isn’t awesome is made of WRONG.

     
  3. LAST CALL people to get Valor of the Healer on sale (and other Carina fantasy titles, for that matter) for 99 cents—the sale is due to expire TODAY. I’ve got the full list of participating Carina titles on my post on my site, so c’mon over if you’re digitally inclined, and give a last look to the titles from me and several other Carina authors!

    Reblog if you’re so inclined, but reblog fast!

    Throw me over your shoulder and carry me off to Valhalla you viking goddess.

    For anyone who doesn’t know: The name of this adorable ‘viking goddess’ is Samantha Wright

    Yes, she might be showing up in the 2016 olympics.

    And yes, she is always this cute.

    Samantha Wright is an adorable combination of the Hulk and Tinkerbell.

    The only post I routinely reblog

    whoa

    whoop reblogging again because reasons. To me you are perfect.

    Reblogging on the grounds that in the alternate timeline where the MCU casts a woman to play Thor, given our new forthcoming Goddess of Thunder, I feel Ms. Wright is our CLEAR AND LOGICAL CHOICE for the role.

Maddie is Very Good and I appreciate her imagination a lot. Have another Doyle-doodle, this time as a James Bond mashup.

I believe the only appropriate word for this is: *CLINK!* :D

  8. Quick update for any international readers

    Hi all!

    I’ve been investigating a problem reported to me about Valor of the Healer on Australian sites, since the book’s still on sale for 99 cents. It had not been deployed properly to iTunes Australia, which made no sense given that they have Vengeance of the Hunter available, as well as Valor's audiobook. Carina Press's people in charge of deploying our books out to third-party channels have happily gotten that resolved for me, and now both Valor and Vengeance are available to Australian customers via iBooks.

    The bad news though is that I’m also told that Australian channels are not participating in the current price promotion, and that the Australian channels do their own promotions. Which would explain why Valor is not showing up at a lower price on iTunes Australia or on Amazon Australia.

    So if you’re in Australia (or anywhere else besides North America and the UK, which are the places that the 99 cent promo is actually active), and you want to take advantage of the sale price, the best thing to do is to go straight to Carina’s own site and buy it there. I’m told directly from our senior editor that we don’t have any territorial restrictions on who can buy books on the site. So any issues with buying the book there would be technical, not based on territorial rights, and the site’s customer support people should be able to assist.

    If you are outside North America and the UK, and you have issues with getting either of my Carina books, do let Carina’s customer service people know. But let me know, too, if you would, just so I know what’s going on! I have faith that Carina’s people will be on top of any issues you run into and will get you set up, but I like to be in the loop too.

    Thanks again to all for your support!
