Monday Minutia: Interview, Books Inc, and Topless

New interview with Larissa, here's a sample:
Favorite Paranormal themed Movie?
I haven't seen it yet. I'm hoping it will be Adele Blanc-sec
(I will say I have a soft spot for the first Underworld movie.)

Oh yes, and for my next literary endeavor I present to you...
Ha! I love this meme.

Had a lovely time at the Books Inc Blameless event. I was a little late and frazzled, but attendees and staff were gracious despite this. There was a pleasing array of comestibles and drinks. Everyone laughed when they were supposed to laugh, asked intelligent questions, and paid gratifyingly rapt attention to my silly stories.
I am looking forward to being back there for Wordplay next month. Details are finally up on my website for that.
