NaNoWriMo is over, so it’s time to get back to regular posting about regular stuff. Here we go.
Thing Number One:
You guys have been asking for a Forum for a while, and when I re-jiggered the site a few months ago, we planned to have one. It took a while, but it’s been active for the last few weeks.
We were working out some bugs, so I didn’t announce it here. But people randomly found it, and various interesting conversations have started. You should go check it out.
To get there, click on the Forum button on the top-right of this page (over the message lizard) or cheat and use this link.
Thing Number Two:
RH Mondadori, my publisher in Spain, had a very cool idea. After publishing Uglies and Pretties using the American covers, they decided to go in a new direction. They held a contest, the first prize of which was to be the cover model for Especiales.
The guy who won is a total fan, which is great, and he also has a definite Special look. The designer held off on the flash tattoos on the front cover, but he has one on his cheek on the back cover. (Which I don’t have a jpg of yet.)
Anyway, here he is:
I don’t actually know his name, only that he’s 22.
Thing Number Three:
Anyway, it’s going to be wicked cool. I’ll be posting photos and such here, assuming the internets are good at our hotel.
Thing Number Four:
And now it’s time for, Walker Wednesday!
Today’s walker comes from CrabFu SteamWorks, who specialize in making steam-powered robots and other toys.
Check this out:
Yes, that smoke is REAL steam that REALLY powering the walker. That’s why Keith’s Clanker walkers are always spitting out scads of smoke.
