References and Rhetorical Flourishes

Monday, July 9, 2018

So the question posed to the Debs this week was: Are there any “easter eggs” or “hidden Mickeys” inside your book? And my answer? Boy howdy, are there ever. There are so many, in fact, that I’m offering up an annotated copy of From Unseen Fire once I hit my next Patreon goal, with every one of them marked out and commented upon. (So if you’re interested in knowing what they…

Cass is a Pack Animal

Monday, July 2, 2018

There are a lot of difficult and frustrating things about existing as a woman, period, let alone as a woman in the publishing world. It’s a strange and particularly maddening state of affairs. More readers are women, more of the money spent on books (as on entertainment in general) is spent by women, and more of the people working in publishing houses are women. And yet — Men still occupy…

Failing Advantageously

Monday, June 11, 2018

Content Warnings: suicide, self-harm It’s hard to write this post in a week where two high-profile, objectively massively-successful people have killed themselves. And I’m not really going to write about that. I don’t tend to comment on celebrity deaths, whatever the cause. It always feels… I don’t know. Performative, somehow, in a way I feel awkward about. So that’s not what this is about. But we are talking about dealing…

Not of an age, but for all time

Monday, May 28, 2018

This week, the Debs are discussing authors we fangirl over, and I’ve decided to focus on the one writer who has influenced my brain more than any other. William Shakespeare I mean that so sincerely and entirely. I worked for the man for seven years, after all! My Master’s degree is in Shakespeare studies. I’ve not only read all of his plays, I’ve actually seen all of them. Most of…
