Though the release date isn't until March 14th, I've heard that pre-orders are already winging out to people's homes.

Hope everyone enjoys the book!

Josh (joshlanyon) | 3 comments And speaking of the IRREGULARS anthology, we've all promised to write Christmas codas for our characters if we win the GLBT bracket in this year's DABWAHA.

We've already made it to the 2nd round, but now we really need votes. http://dabwaha.com/

And Astrid explains convincingly why you should vote for us right here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wl-R9z...

Ginn Hale (ginnhale) | 319 comments Irregulars is battling it out on DABWAHA March 28th from Midnight to Noon cst. (Basically starting late tonight and ending before some of us in other time zones have taken a lunch break.)

So as an incentive to inspire voting all the authors of Irregulars are offering a holiday coda set in the Irregulars world. But I'm willing to go one step farther.

So, if Irregulars takes the LGBT category I will write another holiday extra in addition to the one for the Irregulars.

Would you like to spend Solstice with Javier and Kiram after they've fled Cadeleon? Would you like to peek in on Harper and Belimai during their wicked Holiday? Or maybe you'd just like to see how John and Kyle are doing.

If so, then please post your choice and VOTE!!!

I'm so glad I'm already voting for us because this would have turned the tide. :-)

Can we have that anyway? I'd really love to read Pippi fanfic. (I always thought she got with Annika later in life.)

I vote for Javier and Kiram. PLUS a Lunaluz cameo, please please. LUUNALUUUZ!


message 16: by Astrid (new)

Astrid | 3 comments Well, I don't think I can tempt folks with any extra holiday story from my novels that can compare to a Ginn Hale extra. But I CAN promise an Irregulars comic strip. And maybe a comic strip of Ginn Hale's extra scene. Ooh! How bout that?

LOL, actually it was mostly Madita. And I don't think I ever finished a story. I just folded papers until they looked like little greeting cards and then wrote a few stories like 'Madita an Lisabet goed to the zu. The zu was ful of peeple. Madita luked a the hoase.' Really grapping stuff, I can tell you ;D

ETA: ooh, I never had the Pippi and Annika idea, but hey, now that you mention it... :-D

I love your comic strips.

Everybody who hasn't seen Astrid's mighty artistic prowess can check it out here:

LOL, well of course, I was brilliant back then :-D
A born writer! But I'm feeling generous right now: should you ever feel the need to write a Madita fanfic, I'll allow you to steal that exciting story line from me :-D

Julio Genao (genao) Astrid's comic stands as the most touching act of love for a story I had seen all last year.

Brilliant.

I know, right? I've seriously considered having T-shirts made featuring that picture of Rousma that's on the cover.

It's early but I think we're going to need a miracle of crazy voting to catch up...
but don't give up yet, we have until noon central time to rally friends and supporters.
(I haven't stopped writing the holiday stories.)

Don't worry, lee sc, I've become adept at stealing stuff off Ginn's computer when she's not looking.
