Slightly old, but Ann Aguirre called out the sexism she faced at a SSF panel. This kind of treatment is shocking, but sadly not surprising, in a culture that claims to be equal but really isn't.
RIP Iain M Banks. I've only read one of his books, but I know quite a few of you really loved his work. Best wishes and thoughts with his family.
Bella told me exciting things! Apparantly, I got quoted in Siege and Storm!! I still have to go see, but there's this
And here's my reaction
*searches everywhere to see what they put*
13 July, Charters School, Sunningdale will be having Wonder of Words Young People's Literary Festival. There's going to be Laura Dockrill, Holly Smale, Will Hill, Conrad Mason and Rob Lloyd Jones- a fantastic selection of UK authors! I'll hopefully be there. Will you? For more info, go to Book Zone for Boys.
In November, there's going to be a big author event! Nineteen of them, mostly indie ones, will be at the Hilton London Metropole. Tickets are limited. Go see if there's anyone there you like.
That's all I can think of right now. I leave you with this.
See the thing about being an evil villain is that instead of letting your inner demons fester and weaken you, you can control them and ride your majestic, winged beasts of terror into battle against your enemies ---Mary Rose, TheEverydayGoth
