LINE AND ORBIT giveaway update

Just a heads up: IF BY ANY CHANCE YOU WANTED TO GET A FREE PAPERBACK COPY OF LINE AND ORBIT that just so happens to be a thing you can now do in not one but TWO(!!) places. They are as follows:

  • HERE. This copy happens to also be signed by both me and my co-author.
  • GOODREADS. (sadly closed to anyone outside of Canada and the US)

Both end on February 4th, which is the date of the book’s release. And I suppose no law necessarily prohibits you from signing up in both places. Except maybe South Dakota. Might be illegal in South Dakota.

This time next month, the trade paperback edition of Line and Orbit will be available to purchase. Isn’t that exciting? But wait!! YOU DON’T NECESSARILY HAVE TO PAY FOR YOUR OWN COPY. Because I’m giving one away, you see (one of those pictured up there, oh they are so pretty). And even BETTER: it will be signed by me and my lovely co-author.

Want to enter? Simply fill out this handy form. I promise to guard with my very life, and completely forget, via extensive sessions of hypnosis, all of your personal information as soon as the contest is over. At midnight on February 4th, the contest will end, and I will select one lucky person.

Stop saying ‘fabulous’ in there.

Back from Philcon. It was, in a word, fabulous. I made fabulous friends. I went to some fabulous panels (including one that was actually awful in a fairly fabulous way). I had fabulous Indian food. I met Catherynne Valente and she was fabulously gracious and remembered the essay I wrote about Silently and Very Fast and Donna Haraway’s Cyborg Manifesto. So yeah. Fabulously fabulicious.

by Katie Rose Pipkin

Here are a couple other fabulous things:

  • My short work of SF eco-horror, “Invasives”, is up to read for free in the current issue of The Journal of Unlikely Entomology. It has some awesome art. For those who care about such things, it came from an experience I had as a child camping with my father, where the trees around the campground were covered in disgusting gray caterpillars and I refused to go near them because I think on some level I was afraid they were going to leap on me. Childhood trauma for the literary win.
  • The Scheherazade’s Facade giveaway is still technically going on here, but I decided that Tumblr might be a slightly better tool for this, so you can also enter to win there by simply reblogging. Same terms: I choose a winner at random this upcoming Friday. Goooooo.
