Sometimes the bear gets you

Many things are happening right now-- some good, some stressful, some just Work That Needs Doing.  This includes finishing the galley proofs for A Murder of Mages
But that means today I've got to buckle down on several things, so today's blog post is going to be short and sweet.  Pretty soon I'll be getting into high gear with promotion of A Murder of Mages as well as for the Armadillocon Writers' Workshop, which I'm running this year.  The former comes out on July 7th, and the deadline for the latter is June 15th.  There are some other things on the horizon which I can't announce yet, but it's looking like my summer is going to be quite hectic.
Also, tomorrow is my birthday.  If you are so inclined to do something for me in honor of my birthday, here are a few suggestions:
  1. Give someone you love a copy of Thorn of Dentonhill as a gift.
  2. Pre-order A Murder of Mages.
  3. Write a review of Thorn of Dentonhill on Goodreads, Amazon, your blog, as bathroom graffiti, or whatever.
  4. Create a Wikipedia page for me and/or Thorn.  I'll admit, that's something I could do myself, but it feels ever so slightly tacky to do so.
All right, you have a good week.  I'll see you when I dig myself out.

How does one get a wikipedia page written about one's self. I didn't think they'd let you do one.

Anyone can create an account on wikipedia and make a page. I've done it for a couple other writers. It's got to follow their guidelines, of course, and be backed with sources, but it isn't hard.
