I bought a bed! This might not seem like a huge, momentous event, but in the history of my life, I’ve never actually bought my own bed. My beds have either been given to me by my parents or (in the case of my last bed) purchased from a neighbor who had never used it. Since my move to Fort Lauderdale, I’ve been living like a college kid, using paper plates and sleeping on an air mattress. Things that seemed fun when I was 24 are damned annoying now that I’m 34.
But last night, I bought a bed. It was quite the experience. We braved the rain and tropical storm winds to buy a bed. It’ll be delivered tonight and I am so excited.
The next cool thing is that I can announce that I’ll be contributing a story to an anthology called GRIM. It’s being edited by friend and fellow Pulse author Christine Johnson, author of the fabulous Claire de Lune and one of my most anticipated books of next year, The Gathering Dark. GRIM is a bunch of dark retellings of Grimm’s Fairy Tales. That’s a whole lot of creepy awesomeness. Just check out the authors in this book:
Shaun David Hutchinson
Sarah Rees Brennan
Jeri Smith Ready
I’m pretty thrilled to be part of such a diverse and amazing group of writers. So, yeah, it’s due out Winter 2014 and my story may have something to do with certain pied piper.
So, that’s all for now!
