Building the Blue Alice: so much glue, masking tape, and swearing.

Last month, author and old friend Alex Bledsoe invited me to talk about Last Night at the Blue Alice on his blog. I thought that was as good a time as any to describe one of the weird things I chose to do along the way, which was build this dollhouse. You can read all about it here, and while you’re there, see what Alex has been up to. You should read his books, they’re wonderful.

Today’s doings: Not Necessarily Concurrent

Now reading: The Doll Collection, edited by Ellen Datlow (T|B|F). You’re not surprised.

Now playing: The Wolf Among Us.

Now watching: Penny Dreadful, Vikings, Outlander, and pretending there’s more Justified to come.

Now writing: Last Night at the Blue Alice, coming 2015 from Bedlam.

Now drinking: Yorkshire Gold. I finally found some more – at the liquor store! There was loud batsrejoicing.

Now about to buy: The Tea Bats Lenormand Tarot by the Orange Moon Tea Society (T|B|F)

Now planning: Dollhouse construction and how to best close off any hideyholes that might look inviting to spiders. No building until I’m done with this manuscript, though.

Now absolutely flailing with anticipation for: the tv adaptation of Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell. I’m this close to preordering the blurays show-unseen.

Now listening to: Emily Wells, Anna Calvi, various others in playlists I’m planning to post on 8tracks as soon as I’m satisfied with them. I’ve only been working on them for a year. Yeah. I am slow and persnickety.
