Where in the world...

Penumbra eMag Vol 1 Issue 9 - Click Image to Close Hello! I have been quiet lately, but it’s not for lack of writing. I thought I’d give you a quick update on upcoming releases and appearances:

*”The Triumph of Arachne,” a SF story featuring hubris, catharsis, and spiders in space, is featured in the June issue of Penumbra Magazine

*”Facial Recognition,” a romantic SF story, will be appearing in the Mirror Shards anthology, releasing in August from Black Moon Books

*”Fade Away and Radiate,” a SF romance short story, is appearing in the Mammoth Book of Futuristic Romance, coming in December 2012

*DARK VICTORY, book 2 in the Lady Lazarus trilogy, will be releasing in mmpb format in February 2013 (and I will share the amazing cover for this edition as soon as I can…)

*REBEL ANGELS, book 3 and final book in the Lady Lazarus trilogy, is coming in March 2013 (I think…and I can’t wait to share the cover for this book with you. It is GORGEOUS!)

*I have some other stories that I *think* will find homes soon. Will give you updates when I can.

In the last year, I have fallen in love with writing in the short form, and I am having a blast finding markets for the short stories I am writing lately.

As for appearances…

I am going to be at the LIRW luncheon tomorrow, though sadly I have lost my voice and may have to do an interpretive dance instead of using words to describe my works in progress :-) Drinking warm tea and trying my best to conserve what little is left of my voice.

Once again, I am going to be a Guest of Honor at ConnectiCon this July — LOVE this conference! Can’t wait to come back!

More events are in the works, and I will let you know when I emerge from my writer’s lair again…

With a Little Help from the Band: Launch Party recap

The band!  The band!

This was the photo and blurb that ran in PW Daily today, and it does a great  job of summing up the event at Book Revue on January 22nd.  Despite both the snow and the Giants playoffs, a standing-room-only crowd of intrepid readers joined us, for tea service with English scones, a roving band of klezmer musicians, and insider tales of the writing life.  People came as far away as Florida (hi Audrey!) and NYC (hi Alexandra!) but many others traveled from all over the Island.

Thank you to everyone who braved the slushy weather and the ire of Giants fans to join us! I had an amazing, amazing time, and you all were the best part.  Special thanks to the 13th Floor Klezmer band and to the fab Ken Wishnia, my co-host.

To celebrate, I’m having a little virtual Launch Party right here, right now. Introduce yourself in the comments below, or shoot me an email offline — michele at michelelang put a dot here and then com, and I will put your name in the hat.  One lucky winner will get a signed copy of DARK VICTORY; another will get a signed copy of THE FIFTH SERVANT by Kenneth Wishnia.  And I’ll include additional goodies from the party, including packets of Harney & Sons tea from the tea service — tea as intoxicating as any served up in the Cafe Istanbul in Budapest :-)

So say hello! And check out the additional pictures from the event below.  I’ll pick the winners on February 1st — and everybody on the planet is eligible to play.  Thanks again to everyone for your good wishes -they mean more to me than I can ever express.

I wish I’d gotten a shot from the front of the house — there were many intrepid fans. Here’s a shot from the back
More Intrepid Fans :-)
me with Aaron Crocco, podcaster (The Geekcast) and author
me and the amazing Alexandra Honigsberg, musician, impresario, and visionary
me and the marvelous Beth of Flying off the Shelves
So many friends from LIRW came out to the party, but I didn’t get enough shots with you all! This is a picture with Marilyn Levinson, a fellow member of LIRW and also of Sisters in Crime. She brought a friend, also from Sisters in Crime
