She's Very Busy

I'm listening to Slave to Love by Bryan Ferry.

I'm surprised by all that my fantasy author, Sandy Lender, has going on right now. First, this strange picture of her is courtesy of her author friend Bob Bair. She was leading some workshop about blogging over the weekend (instead of writing) and he snapped this picture.

She's also been promoting the release of Choices Meant for Kings in Kindle format as well as hardcover. She's checking with her publisher to see how difficult it would be to go ahead and get it in nook format.

What else is she doing instead of writing? Well, let's see. She dropped off these postcard-like flyers at Barnes & Noble this afternoon to promote the book signing for next weekend. (If you're in Southwest Florida, be sure to stop in to see her sometime between 10 a.m. and noon Halloween morning at the B&N in Naples.) Then she's editing a novel for ArcheBooks Publishing that deals with reincarnation. I really need to get her to focus...

All my best to you,

She's in Some Magazine

I'm listening to Whenever I Say Your Name by Sting.

True to form, my fantasy author, Sandy Lender, has been penning things that have nothing to do with my lovely bride. You can catch her latest work in the innaugural issue of Winter's Night magazine, available now at Lulu.

Her short story A Legacy Protected was selected to be published alongside other fantasy authors such as Richard Bray, Todd Diel, Judith W. Huey, and many others. You can order a print version of this 84-page, family-friendly magazine, or download an electronic version of it at that Lulu site. Personally, I don't think we should encourage her in this maddening habit of writing things unrelated to the finale of the Choices series, but, apparently, there's nothing to be done for it. I shall continue to badger her. I promise.

All my best to you,

She's "Nudged" Me to Market

I'm listening to Beautiful Thieves by AFI.

So my fantasy author, Sandy Lender, suggested I post something here to let everyone know I'm not ignoring her. Apparently, she's been talking about me (and this blog). She had a radio interview Tuesday, which aired again very early this morning. Then there's a guest blog post at LASR all day today that mentions me and this site. Last weekend she had an interview at Helen's Heroes that mentioned me ad nauseum. I keep telling her that her focus should be on Chariss...and, of course, finishing Chariss's story.

We're a bit sidetracked this week because Sandy's sitting around feeling sorry for herself. She had a couple of basal skin cell carcinomas removed from her shoulder and arm yesterday, and the pain set in during the night. (She can really be pathetic when she starts that moaning...oh...wait...sure enough...she's censoring this.)

As it turns out, she's not feeling sorry for herself; she's merely being cautious so as not to pull her stitches out. (Personally, I think she's sitting around feeling sorry for herself. I should probably fix her a piece of cake or something to be nice.)

Everyone have a lovely day and check out TodayTheDragonWins for some not-Chariss's-story contest she's holding. (Oh, more censorship: she says she can hold contests that aren't focused on the Choices trilogy and still work on the Choices trilogy.)

All my best,
Nigel Taiman
