We’re both feeling meh today, but we gotta get in that Christmas spirit!
!2 day opens Scientist Princess
It’s time to open the advent calendar again! This year we have both our classic old advent and a new chocolate advent. Considering technical difficulties, we are going short and simple this year. Or at least today.
Inspired as always by Grant Baciocco’s Advent Calendar Podcast!
I’m so sorry. So so sorry. I recorded this and edited it before Thanksgiving and… forgot to post it. It’s been a bad month, incidentally. Here are feedbacks for you. Meta cast tomorrow. Happy NaNoWriMo ending!
Bigger apologies since the Obsolete Press deadline is today. *hides in a hole*
What’s that word when you have been away for a while and you drive 12 hours – broken up by a 1.5 hour funeral along the way home – and you get home and have a migraine and take a pill and wake up completely brain dead and unable to get to work because brain not work good?
Right. The word is AUGH.
I’m home from Thanksgiving in Buffalo and pretty useless. Still in my robe and need to go get the dogs from the kennel soon. So I’m going to keep this short. The biggest thing is people are letting me know that the service I’m using for direct purchase of Merry Christmas from the Heartbreakers (Look! Sidebar! Buy it! Yay! Cyber Monday! Booyah!) is not delivering immediately in some cases. If this happens to you, PLEASE email me (mightymur at gmail). I’ll already have proof of your receipt in my inbox, so if you mail me directly I’ll shoot the files over to you.
[EDIT- As of 12/2/12 I have removed all links to the offending site that didn’t deliver. Remember if you bought from me and didn’t get your files, EMAIL ME.]
Secondly, I got an awesome thing in the mail when I got home from the trip.
I have finally gathered my dozen Christmas short stories into a collection, and have published them via ebook! Fans of Escape Pod’s holiday stories, of which i’ve been part for years, will hopefully appreciate this collect, as it comes with seven I’ve published through them, and five that have only been read by people who donated to the EP fundraiser last holiday season. You can find
- Merry Christmas from the Heartbreakers (obviously!)
- Santa in My Pocket
- Zuzu’s Bell
- 750,000 of Your Friends Like This
- As Solitary as an Oyster
- MESSAGE REDACTED (which is based on Jonathan Coulton’s song “Chiron Beta Prime“)
and several others. If you want to ask “Is XXX in there?” It probably is, as I’ve left nothing out.
You can buy directly from me, epub and mobi for the cost of a caloric bomb of a Gingerbread Latte from Starbucks ($3.99).
(Note, I am no longer using the site I was using before. This is paypal –> download page. No waiting!)
You can also buy from the Kindle store.
I’m a big fan of Christmas and loved writing these, and hope you love reading them!
(Thanks to my buddy Matt Wallace for the intro to UploadNSell, which will take the money, distribute the files, and not charge a dime. Matt has used it for his awesome book launch, The Failed Cities (definitive edition), which everyone should buy right after they shop here.)
I talk NaNoWriMo and play a Pip Ballantine interview!
