The last four days I spent at the PNWA Writers’ Conference, where my friend and critique group member, Gayle Clemans, had 6 different agents ask for her manuscript (which in the publishing world, is awesome).
Between the ‘too busy to eat’ bit, crappy con food when I did eat, 18 hour days, and not enough sleep, I got home in great need of: real food, isolation, fun, and sleep.
So of course, we went to Card Kingdom aka Cafe Mox (if you aren’t familiar, Card Kingdom is an awesome tabletop & card game store in Seattle. Cafe Mox is the restaurant part of it, where you can eat and play games for hours over a pint). This supplied the food portion and the fun by way of some MTGM15 drafting. (MTG = Magic the Gathering Card Game…oh, just click the link.)
After a few games, we’ve decided we do not like M15 Core Set. It has some excellent cards and a few over-powered cards, but the rest suck. When we got home, we were trying to play a different game…and DiNozzo happened. He hopped up and lay across the entire game. Refused to move. He even went belly kitty on us.
Thus, DiNozzo says, “No!” to all game play. That game was over. 😉 I made a really crappy card based on this event. I’ll use a better card maker later to fix it, but for now, you get the point. I love the irritation on my husband’s face.
So what’s coming up?
- Flashback Friday is going to shift formats soon to a Flashforward Friday (more on that later).
- A new excerpt from Amaskan’s Blood
- A new map from Amaskan’s Blood

Be sure to check back later this week! So until then, I’m off for that nap!
