Okay—I think I’m finally ready to dive in to this (cess)pool of demented humanity. I realize I have a lot to learn about how this stuff works—for instance, I didn’t know the forum was running a discussion about how Jackie and I are the nicest people in UF—well, that’s true. But there are some devious individuals who shall remain nameless (but whose initials are Derek or Lord Ruthven) that think they are going to stir up a fight between us.
Oh, you have no idea who you’re messing with…. But we’ll take this up in person at Dragon*Con, won’t we? Be warned.
Anyway, back to the intro—I’m Jeanne Stein. Besides being the nicest person in UF, I’m the author of the Anna Strong Chronicles. I love anything UF, Joss Whedon, Vampire. I share a blog with Mario Acevedo here. We post twice a week-- Mario posts on Monday, I post on Wednesday. Mario will pop in with an intro himself but right now he’s in revision mode so he barely has time to breathe, let alone post. And if you know Mario, you know he NEEDS his rewrite time.
Anyway, for those of you who would like to get to know my stuff, I’m running a contest. Submit a comment between now and midnight Feb. 13th and you’ll be in the running for all this loot:
If you have any questions you’d like to ask me, don’t hesitate. I have no secrets. Nice people tend to be incredibly boring. Here’s a pic taken last week at a talk I gave at a San Diego JC—My hair is different, as usual. I change styles and colors at will. You’d think someone who has been on the planet as long as I have would know how to wear her hair. I’m still experimenting.
So, is there anything else I should tell you? I’m looking forward to being a part of this group. Mario says I need to loosen up. If being around Mark and Anton and Mario and Dakota doesn’t do it, I’m afraid I’m a lost cause. Which reminds me—starting next week, Saturday, I’m going to run a feature spotlighting two or three of our illustrious members who will share pics of their writers’ rooms. If you’re like me, I’m always curious (read nosy) to see where the magic happens.
It’s probably been mentioned already, but we Leaguers are taking over the Club RT room on Thursday, April 24th at 10:30. We have great give-away’s planned. So if you’re attending RT this year, be sure to put that on your calendar. Will all be providing more details later.
See you on Saturday.
