Happy December! Happy Advent Calendar Season!
I haven’t talked about it much (Bad Mur!) but I’m the new co-host of the spec fic arm of the Carolina Bookbeat show on WCOM in Carrboro, NC, along with Sam Montgomery-Blinn. We talk every first Monday of the month about speculative fiction books. You can listen live on the radio, online, or download our podcast.
Seeing as how I’m in Carrboro for half the first Monday of the month (this includes driving time and lunch time) it pretty much destroys my day. I’m trying to get Ghost Train to New Orleans episodes up on Monday, but every 4th week (like, say, this one) it will have to be Tuesday. Stay tuned.
Same for I Should Be Writing, incidentally. I have a new computer coming, and that should make recording much easier. Tomorrow or Wednesday there should be new awesomeness. At least on my end. On your end things will sound the same.
NaNoWriMo was a failure, again, but I got around 30k words for the month, which is much better than my usual average. I consider it a win.
Speaking of writing, it’s the holidays and it’s time to buy presents for loved ones. And books make great gifts! Signed books, even!

Lastly, it’s Advent season again, and we are celebrating with a new year of our Advent Calendar podcast, inspired by Grant’s Advent Calendar. This year’s theme is Radio World, and my daughter Fiona will be doing an old timey radio drama, every voice. We have permission from the awesome John Anealio to use his “Batman Smells (A Rebuttal)” as our theme song again!
