The Heart of the Kingdom is in full swing over at LT3’s serials. For those following along, the real fun starts next week. :3 :3
It’s been two months since Battle of Willdropped, and if ya’ll haven’t had a chance to pick up a copy or if you’d like a paperback copy, I’m throwing a giveaway through GoodReads. Giveaway is open until March 31, and open to everyone everywhere. (Note: the giveaway thing is a bit buggy; there are entries, but on the book page it says there isn’t. So if you enter and see that, your entry is there, GoodReads is just being weird.)
To enter, go to the GoodReads page and scroll down. Below the book description and “My Review” (in quotes b/c I didn’t review it, I added it to my “wrote-it” shelf), you will have the option to enter.
“It might sound crazy, but the recent reboot of the television show Cosmos: A Personal Journey— Carl Sagan’s classic 1980s exploration of all things science, this time starring the charismatic Tyson and renamed “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey” — is already attracting more attention for what it says about religion than astrophysics.”
Of all the (many, many x_x) stories I am working on right now, I admit this one is my favorite. I am taking a 12,000 word short story that I wound up extremely pleased with (and was way more popular than I could ever have anticipated or dreamed) and turning it into quite the beast. When I started the rewrite, I thought the final product would be in the 40-60k range. I definitely think it’ll be more like 80-100k now, if I’m going to do the job right (and I always do my damnedest to do it right).
THKGT is comprised of basically three parts: meeting, shenanigans, post-shenanigans. Now, when endeavoring to make/keep it a short story, I kind of started at the very end of the first part, then cut out most of the second and third and smooshed the remaining bits together. This was acceptable for short form.
For long form, that’s not really an option. Everything takes longer, and this is very much what is called a slow burn romance. That romance, in fact, cannot even realistically take place until the third part, and that’s the main reason this story has to be so much longer.
In addition to that, more must be done with the politics and strife, and there are way more characters to juggle. I also have a sub-romance going for Rene, whom I’m sure most fans of the short story will remember.
"Our friend Miche Braden returned to help us show what Guns N’ Roses "Sweet Child O’ Mine" would have sounded like if New Orleans blues legend Bessie Smith had recorded it back in the ’20s. That note at 3:58 was so powerful that the room literally shook…”
the last minute ho shit
Omg watch this
This is the most amazing thing I’ve ever heard. Holy crap.
The Hannibal fandom extends a cordial invitation to ALL THE FANDOMS in Tumblr to join us for dinner.
Our beloved show is currently struggling with ratings, and as you all understand, that can be quite a sticky situation to be in if you want to have a show you love renewed for another season.
So here we are, asking you people to help us help Will Graham and get the show going for many more seasons. We would be more than thrilled to have more people to share this intelligent, elegant and utterly superb show with, as well as the madness of our fandom.
Patients taking the antidepressant Effexor (venlafaxine) should be aware that the drug manufacturer Pfizer has issued a recall of one lot of the medications after they discovered one bottle contained a heart drug used to treat atrial fibrillation.
The medication found is Tikosyn that was discovered in one bottle of Effexor XR. The heart medication could cause abnormal heartbeat that could cause symptoms of dizziness, sweating, pallor and fainting.
Patients should check their antidepressant for lot numbers 130142 and V130140, with expiration date of October 2015. Also recalled is Effexor XR with Greenstone lot number V130014, which expires in August 2015.
The antidepressant recall includes two lots of Effexor XR® 150 Mg Extended-Release Capsules and one lot of Greenstone’s Venlafaxine HCl 150 Mg Extended-Release Capsules.
The FDA warns the interaction between the heart drug Tikosyn and venlafaxine “could be fatal”.
Hi friends - if you know anyone who might use the medication, please reblog/signal boost
Rather preturbed that the symptoms they mention are a lot like my discontinuation effects; I’d probably have assumed I missed a dose (if I were still on this.)
