December 2013 Preview

December brings the calendar year to a close, but for me it will mark the start of something very exciting – the publication of my novel Wynde in print and ebook formats. Naturally I’ll have much to share here at FANgirl, along with our usual blog topics for the holidays and more.

Wynde – I’ve been waiting so long to share my novel Wynde with everyone, and once it’s available I’ll have a lot more to say about the story, its characters, and my goals for the book. Additionally, the Kickstarter for the anthology Athena’s Daughters will start in December, and will include a story set within the events of the novel.

Year in Review – We’ll continue our annual tradition of recapping the highlights of the year on the blog, for Star Wars, and beyond.

Fangirls Going Rogue and Holiday Gift Guide – The second episode of my new podcast Fangirls Going Rogue will go live this month. Teresa and I will have a special guest to discuss shopping for Christmas presents for fangirls of all stripes. We’ll share another FANgirl gift guide, as well.

Here are a few of the other things we’re looking forward to in December:
