1) Post ten of any pictures currently on your hard drive that you think are self-expressive.
2) NO CAPTIONS!!! It must be like we’re speaking with images and we have to interpret your visual language just like we have to interpret your words.
3) They must ALREADY be on your hard drive – no googling or flickr! They have to have been saved to your folders sometime in the past. They must be something you’ve saved there because it resonated with you for some reason.
4) You do NOT have to answer any questions about any of your pictures if you don’t want to. You can make them as mysterious as you like. Or you can explain them away as much as you like.

Actually, TWO. Two that I’ve heard about. Kind people let me know that my novella Apocalyptic Montessa and Nuclear Lulu: A Tale of Atomic Love was nominated for the Hugo Awards. This…means the world to me. The Hugos are something that I have always aspired to. Let’s get an evening gown and head out to the Academy Awards while we’re at it, no?

I’m not on the short list, and I most likely won’t be. I’m still very new. This means that we can’t officially call AM&NL: AToAL “A Hugo Award Nominee.” But I can definitely say that it was nominated for the Hugo Award.

EEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!! I’m so excited!

I was nominated for the Hugo!!!

Mercedes and Belladonna

I have always wanted a motorcycle. I finally made a promise to myself that when I sold my first novel, I would reward myself with a bike. That novel was Nameless: The Darkness Comes.

Here she is. I think she’s beautiful.

motorcycle Shadow Aero

She’s a 2008 Shadow Aero. 750 cc and gorgeous. She was meant to be mine. I fell in love with her the second I saw her!

But she doesn’t have a name. The frontrunner is Montessa, although I’m also considering Bryony. What are your suggestions? Something this wonderful deserves a killer name!

Anyway! My first bike! For selling my first novel! Yay. Yaaaaaaaay!

Also, if anybody has any tips and advice, I’d love to hear it. I learned to ride at the safety course, with a much smaller bike. I have a fantastic helmet that I always wear. The children are only on the bike when it’s turned off, just in case the picture worried you.  Let me have it, friends!
