A couple of quickies – new author sites and updates:
Juliet Marillier has relaunched her website. I’m finding it slightly graphics-heavy, but it looks good. There’s a RSS feed for news updates which is always useful. She talks about her website redesign on Writers Unboxed – it’s pretty interesting stuff.
Mercedes Lackey has a Facebook page (and okay, a Twitter account too). Better still, she says she plans to update her website – about time, I say. I’ve just had a quick look and I’m seeing 2009 releases listed, though the welcome message is still dated July 2002.
Her Facebook site also has the following piece of news:
Completed the Fairy Godmother piece. Turned it in. Next up a new Young Adult dark fantasy/western ("Deadwood" style) series proposal. Also Tor says they want some Diana Tregarde and Jenny Talldeer. We’re going to do a threesome of novellas. (What is the collective noun there?) Apparently they were listening after all 😉
Yay on the novellas news – I loved the Diana Tregarde books. And the YA dark fantasy/western sounds very intriguing.
