A Note About Friend-Locked Posts



I've decided to stay on LJ for the time being. However, I followed the example of one of my flisties and friend-locked any posts with more questionable content (e.g. fic belonging to a genre beginning with the letter "s"). Maybe I'm being overly paranoid about the possibility of censorship, or maybe these measures won't be enough if LJ does start censoring its content, but I figure it can't hurt.

If you're already on my flist (those of you still left on LJ), the friend-locking isn't going to make any difference. If you're just a casual visitor, you can find all of my stories (with the exception of Action Figure Theatre and some jackycomelately birthday fic) here on AO3. ALL of my fic is available on or through Dreamwidth. You're more than welcome to friend me on LJ, Dreamwidth or both -- if you haven't done so already.

I seriously need to revamp my Dreamwidth Fic Masterlist as it was imported from LJ and a lot of the links are to LJ. I've also done a lousy job of updating it. I'm going to try to revise it soon.

Sherlock Holmes: Stranger Than Truth Has Been Published!



This information is coming later than it should, but Sherlock Holmes: Stranger Than Truth has now been published! If you're curious, you can find a preview on Goodreads (where you can see my story listed in the Table of Contents). Goodreads also provides a list of online stores where the book can be purchased. The book is available in paperback and digital form on Amazon.ca, Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk. I'm not sure if the book is available on other Amazon sites as well.

New Fan Art from raven714!



raven714 was kind enough to create some new fan art/cover art for Children of the Wheel:






I think raven714 has really outdone herself with this piece. It not only looks beautiful, but it contains quotes from the story itself. raven714 has also created a really cool story tagline that works extremely well. I just hope the actual story doesn't pale in comparison to the cover art! *g* Thank you very much for all of the hard work that you put into this piece, raven714! :-D

A Story of Mine is Being Published!



A Sherlock Holmes story that I wrote is being published in the following anthology:





I first learned about both this anthology (and Sherlock Holmes: Stranger than Fiction) back in September. As Belanger Books was accepting submissions, I thought I'd give it a shot. Although the deadline was December 31st, I kept it a secret in case my story was rejected. Happily, I heard from the editor on February 1st and learned that my story had been accepted. At the moment, Belanger Books is running an AWESOME Kickstarter campaign for both Sherlock Holmes: Stranger than Truth and Sherlock Holmes: Stranger than Fiction. I say "AWESOME" because they have a trailer -- an actual trailer for these books. Oh, and if you scroll far enough down the page, you can see my name and the title of my story.

This is probably my news of the year, so I'm definitely savouring it more than I should. I'm also hopelessly vain about my writing, so there's that too. *g*

Gratuitous Pics of Cats Taken During the Holidays



It's been ages since I posted any cat photos, so I thought it was high time I remedied that situation. I was lucky enough to be able to get some rather adorable pictures of both Tuppence and Barnaby over the holidays and here they are:







Tuppence will sometimes cross her front paws in a wonderfully lady-like fashion.







Barnaby loves a box. I had an Amazon package come in this one
and Barnaby claimed it at once. Surprisingly, he's not in it.




It's completely exhausting when you're this cute.


I actually did take some pictures of the human members of my family, but I had to promise not to post any of them...
