Necklace & Kushiel's ChosenA quick update for February! First and foremost, this is your last chance to acquire the official Phèdre's Marque necklace featured here on the homepage. Place your order by Valentine's Day! All proceeds go to my local library, and our goal is to raise $10,000 by February 14th. Whether we make it or not, it's been a great fundraiser.

I'm happy to say that last month's re-launch of Kushiel's Dart has generated some nice buzz for the book, and hopefully will garner some new readers. This Throwback Thursday essay on Barnes & Noble's blog is a particularly good one. If you're trying to convince someone to read the series, this is one to share!' I've heard from a lot of readers who are indignant at any comparison to Fifty Shades of Grey, and I feel you, but... it's just marketing, guys. And the truth of the matter is, it's smart marketing. These have always been incredibly difficult books to describe. If the Hollywood-speak shorthand of "It's like Fifty Shades meets Game of Thrones" does the job, then I'm all for it.

Speaking of Hollywood, a fun site that came to my attention as a result of the re-launch is the If List, wherein you can petition for your favorite stories to be adapted for film or TV, and propose actors and filmmakers you'd love to see make it happen. I don't know what, if any, influence it has, but it's a great site for fans who enjoy playing the Imaginary Casting Game to share their suggestions and see who other fans have proposed.

AllegraI also had a great time at Illogicon in North Carolina last month, where I met a lot of lovely fans and saw the best Phèdre and Joscelin cosplay I've had the pleasure to encounter, featured here on the homepage. Pretty awesome, right? I'm attending a few more conventions this year, listed under Events over on the left - and possibly a couple more yet to come - but I'm guessing nothing's going to top those costumes!

That's all for now! Check out the Tattoo Gallery for some gorgeous new entries, and you live in a frozen clime like I do, stay warm!
