Okay so why the labarum? For my warders who are going to print. Yeah! There will be two volumes and I'm pleased about that because I like to hold things in my hands. I was telling a friend just the other day that for long stories, I need to flip pages. My kids probably won't have the same need, growing up as they are with laptops and Kindles and PlayStations, but for me, I still need it.Go into any Barnes & Noble and it's easy to see that it's not just me. People have been prophesying the end of paperbacks for years but I don't see it happening quite yet. So I am thrilled that my warders will be in print, makes me happy.
This morning I was at Wal-Mart (Walmart, I think they changed the spelling) because the Target is on the other side of the island from me and I'm looking at the faces of Easter bunnies for my kids. A man beside me just grabbed two and I thought, what if the eyes are misaligned, what if the expressions are mean, I have to LOOK in the faces of the stuffed animals I get my kids. My husband is always like, "it's just a bunny or a bear or a frog", and I explain to him that there is character there and you have to be picky.
So I am not going to GRL, am really going to try and go next year for sure, but if anyone else is at Yaoi-Con in Los Angeles in October, please stop by the DSP table and see me and Nessa Warin. We'll be there. :)
