September is back-to-school for some, the waning days of summer for others. At FANgirl it’s a month to look forward to exciting times ahead.
Wynde and the Fireheart Series – Now that we’re well into Wynde’s release period, I’ve decided it’s time to lift my self-imposed ban on discussing spoilers and begin talking about some of my writing and storytelling decisions in creating the novel and its characters. Up first, a discussion of how the Heroine’s Journey shaped the core of Vespa’s arc in the first book.
GeekGirlCon Preview – I’m thrilled that this year FANgirl contributors will be representing on TWO panels at GeekGirlCon, held October 11-12 in Seattle. We’ll have previews of both topics, and introduce the panelists. (Okay, I’ll admit it – one of them is a Star Wars panel.)
And a Surprise… – We have a surprise to unveil later this month at FANgirl, as well. Stay tuned for more.
