LoC talk and Wicked Game giveaway!

I'm giving a talk at the Library of Congress this afternoon, as part of their "What If" Science Fiction/Fantasy forum.

Scared, am I? Yes, quite a bit. I'm not used to having the entire stage to myself when I have to make stuff up.

The title of my talk is "Rock 'n' Roll Can Never Die." I'll be reading several snippets from Wicked Game, interspersed with a few appropriate songs and a discussion of how music has inspired my writing process. It might totally rock, or it might flop. I'll let you know.

On the Internetz, Werecat author Rachel Vincent is giving away a copy of Wicked Game AND a box of chocolates to one lucky commenter this week. Yes, chocolate. Which makes her officially today's The World! Last week she discussed the book on her blog, which made me all pitter-pattery.

And don't forget, you have through the rest of the day today to enter the drawing for one of Cynthia Eden's fantastic new books.

OMG, wicked cool! Enjoy yourself, and rock on!
