Warded Jack O’Lantern!

Posted by Meg

Fan Sean (@JohnStyles1) decided to ward off some demons on Halloween night … pretty effective warding, I’d say.

This is beyond awesome. I think we are going to have to run a contest next year.

Peat’s on deadline for The Skull Throne. Will he make it? Will technology get in his way?

  •  @PVBrett – Skipped the gym today to wear flannel & focus on #SkullThrone rewrite. I feel so naughty.
  • @PVBrett - We’re raising a generation of women whose only exposure to helpless princess trope is seeing it turned on its head. This is a good thing.
  • @PVBrett - Sometimes I feel I waste a lot of mental RAM on random minutiae in a scene. But if I don’t, who will? #SkullThrone
  • @PVBrett - Huge #SkullThrone progress yesterday, but still a ton to do. But first I must sit and sign my name 555 times. My job is weird.
  • @PVBrett - Twitter today is full of people I agree with being such assholes I want to disagree with them anyway. Oh, wait. That’s every day.
  • @PVBrett - Signing your name 500 times in a row is like a brief visit to purgatory.
  • @PVBrett - Not sure what I expected with Batgirl #35 but I kinda dug it. Not appropriate for Cassie, tho. The search for kid friendly comics continues.
  • @PVBrett - Slight change to the #SkullThrone release. No creative delays, just production scheduling. New dates: US March 31, 2015 / UK April 9, 2015.
  • @PVBrett - One of my rewrite notes: [TK insert dirty limerick involving the sexual organs of corelings.] This is my job.
  • @PVBrett - My Polish publisher Fabryka S?ow is re-releasing The Great Bazaar & Brayan’s Gold with a great new cover: http://t.co/sFchPVgAv0

Polish GB and BG rerelease

  • @PVBrett - Need to make a Jardir family tree for #SkullThrone. Fourteen wives, all with at least 4 kids. My head hurts just thinking about it.
  • @PVBrett - Snacking on raisins and it feels like a treat. This is your 40′s people. Take a long hard look.
  • @PVBrett - Compiled #SkullThrone beta read notes into master file w/ 108 rewrite comments varying from “fix sentence” to “add chapter”. 2 weeks to go.
  • @PVBrett - Watch this space as I slowly lose my mind over the next 2 weeks…
  • @PVBrett - Trying to use track changes on an 833 page manuscript still crashes Word regularly. And here I thought it was 2014.
  • @PVBrett - Nothing infuriates more than tech failing you when you are on a deadline.
  • @PVBrett - UK signed and numbered edition of Messenger’s Legacy available for preorder from @GoldsboroBooks http://t.co/MTaPhGdMKD

UK Messenger's Legacy

ML treasure chest

  • @PVBrett - I really adore the Messenger journal design of the UK Demon Cycle novellas. http://t.co/gj8BDukP90
  • @PVBrett - Mind demons are technically male, but they are not human. So are they properly referred to as “he” or “it”? #nerdworldproblems
  • @PVBrett - Thanks for the opinions, everyone. Went with “it” during human POV and “he” for mind demon POV. Seems consistent with earlier books.
  • @PVBrett - I am vengeance. I am the night. I am… hoping you still have some of those mini Snickers bars.http://t.co/qb1NKdnaNF

Cassie batgirl Halloween

  • @PVBrett - It occurs to me, as I follow along, gray and carrying everything, that I have become Alfred. http://t.co/nW0A90uiQY

Cassie Halloween

  • @PVBrett - It’s #skullthrone crunch week with the World Fantasy Con starting Thursday. So of course I caught a cold…
  • @PVBrett - Could you theoretically punch someone’s jaw so hard it breaks off and flies through the air? Asking for a friend.
  • @PVBrett - NSFW RT @D18matt: .@PVBrett theoretically http://t.co/vXRAOCczM8

Punch jaw

  • @PVBrett - Last week had 108 editorial notes to address in the #SkullThrone rewrite. Whittled down to the 9 heaviest lifts. Made fresh coffee. It’s on.

Catch up with Peat on Twitter and Facebook!
