Random Things

It’s only a few days until Thanksgiving!  Yaaay!  What is everyone doing for Turkey Day this year?

Well, the nightly scorpion checks (plural) have turned up no further scorpions as of yet.  I pray this trend continues.

No news yet regarding Eyes of Stone from Angry Robot Books (sigh), but they did sign 2 authors so far from their Open Door Month experiment, and they have hinted that there might be more.  They will also hold another Open Door Month next year, so if you’re a sci-fi/fantasy/horror author, get those manuscripts ready!!  Also, they have announced their new imprint, Strange Chemistry Books, which will feature YA books.  It will be edited by Ms. Amanda Rutter, who read a great many of the Open Door Months submissions.  You can read more about all of that at 

And, should the Angry Robot Overlords happen to land on my blog, the Anxious Appliances have a message for them:


I hope I got the syntax right.  :P

One last announcement:  My husband David & I have decided to try to have a baby!  We’ve been together for 11 years (married for 8 of those), and we’re both turning 30 next month.  So we figured if we’re going to do it, we’d best do it soon.  

If you listen reeeeeally close, you can hear the future Grandmas squealing in joy.  It’ll be the first grandchild all around, so it’ll be spoiled rotten, I’m sure.

That is all for today.  :)


  1. My Thanksgiving is always busy because my dad and sister's birthdays are two days apart at that time....

    Congratulations on the bundle of joy! (It's about time.)

  2. Oh, that is so exciting about Angry Robot - I can well imagine the suspense and anxiety. I'm sending you good vibes.

    We're spending T-day at a friend's house as we live so far away from family and T-day isn't a holiday here.

    Wow - you're brave to announce that TTC news - I would never get our families to leave us alone if I made that announcement ;) They'd be calling every day for updates. Good luck!
