Happy Halloween! <3
Glee Meme | Seven Colours (4/7)
About six weeks ago I hit a rather significant number of followers. While I don’t publicise my follower count or put much stock behind it, I do keep an eye on it and know there are a lot of you. I’m not quite sure why, but I’ve been wanting to do something as a kind of thank you for ages and this seems as good a reason as any!
I don’t have fancy gadgets to send you, so I’m offering something a little bit different.
In essence, I will pick three winners who will each receive a box of goodies from a fictional character of their choice. I’m going to specify fandoms just because I need to be familiar enough with the characters to be able to theme a box from them. So, if you have a character in the Glee, WTNV, Harry Potter, or Marvel fandoms that you would like to receive a box from, read on!
- Be aged over 18 or have parental permission to give me your address if you win.
- Both reblogs and likes count, but please don’t spam your followers or use a dedicated give-away account. I will check.
- Your ask box must be open so I can contact you if you win
- You don’t have to be following me. It’d be nice if you were, but I get a lot of notes on my posts from people who don’t and just check in every now and again so I won’t restrict it to just my followers.
- Understand that the contents of the box are up to me. If you have any allergies or major dislikes please tell me if you win, but otherwise know you could end up with anything! There will be at least 5 items in each box, and probably a lot more because I get carried away.
- You can live anywhere. I will happily ship internationally.
The give-away will end on November 3rd, at 8am (GMT). Winners will be selected on the same day using a random number generator, and will have 48 hours to respond to either the winners announcement or my ask before someone else is picked. It’ll take me up to two weeks to ship the boxes, so please be patient. I’m putting a lot of effort into them.
If you have any questions just nip into my ask, otherwise, good luck!
I’m so excited! Can you even imagine a gift box from Blaine Anderson or Rachel Berry or Remus Lupin? Or KURT?! Oh god, I can’t win. I’d never be able to decide…
With Sotto Voce available Tuesday, I’ll be hitting a bunch of book blogs over the next two weeks to talk about the book, the wine, the characters and the communities behind the book. I hope you’ll check it out. Visit the tour stops, drop a note and qualify for a Sotto Voce multi-format eBook or a gift card for Barnes and Noble!

American Horror Story meets Glee. In their first big move on the scripted side at Fox, Fox TV Group chairmen Dana Walden and Gary Newman have given a 15-episode straight to series order to one of their most trusted creators at 20th Century Fox TV, Ryan Murphy. With Glee wrapping its run on Fox, the network has ordered comedy-horror anthology Scream Queens, from Glee creators Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan. This marks the second straight-to-series order for an anthology series for Murphy and Falchuk on the heels of FX greenlighting an American Crime Story spinoff from the duo’s hugely successful horror anthology series American Horror Story.
The first installment of Scream Queens revolves around a college campus which is rocked by a series of murders. 20th Century Fox Television and Murphy’s studio-based Murphy Television produce, with Murphy, Falchuk, Brennan creating as well as exec producing with Dante Di Loreto.
“I knew I wanted to work with Brad and Ian again on something comedic, and we are having a blast writing SCREAM QUEENS,”said Murphy. “We hope to create a whole new genre – comedy-horror – and the idea is for every season to revolve around two female leads. We’ve already begun a nationwide search for those women, as well as 10 other supporting roles, and we’re very grateful to Dana and Gary for their enthusiastic support.”
“One of our top priorities at the network has been to get Ryan Murphy to create a new series for FOX. We loved every element of the pitch for this show — the genre-bending concept, which blends true horror with big comedic moments; the diverse and unforgettable characters and reuniting the phenomenal creative team that delivered GLEE,” said Walden and Newman. “SCREAM QUEENS will go straight to series. It’s a huge commitment and an expression of our faith in Ryan. We are ecstatic to have him, along with Brad, Ian and Dante as our partners on this exciting ride.”
He seems to play one of the keyboard guys this season.
I’m super excited that this book is finally out and available! And look at the pretty cover!
Some of you may remember this call for contributions (which I found shortly after I found the Glee fandom, which sadly also was after the deadline for submissions had already passed). This is the resulting book.
I have linked you to the table of contents page (which also contains a “buy now” button for your immediate purchasing satisfaction, and at least one name I recognize from fandom (hi!)).
It also shows that the definition of “queer” is most definitely an intersectional one, so the essays also cover aspects of race/ethnicity, disability, and religion in addition to sexuality, gender, and/or fandom.
I have already ordered my copy and suggest you do the same. Because how else are we going to talk about the essays once I got the book in my eager hands (which will be in another few weeks because I am in Europe and the book isn’t, yet)?!
Today, Girlie is a published novelist. I know many of you loved her fan fiction story Sotto Voce, and many of you will also love her novel based on the fic.
What you may not know about Girlie is, like me, she didn’t start Interlude Press in order to publish her own book. She didn’t consider herself to be a novelist. A writer, yes. But not a novelist. To say she was floored when Publishers Weekly gave Sotto Voce a starred review would be an understatement.
Setting aside promotion, and sales, I want to take a moment to congratulate her on this day, her release day. She’s written a fantastic novel, a delicious love story, and I am so proud of her!
Thank you, Annie, and everyone who has been supportive of this story both as fan fiction and as a novel. It means the world to me. I never really expected Sotto Voce to find the readership that it got as fic, and I’m so happy to have met so many lovely people because of it.
Now, I’m going to insert a cut so I can get serious for a moment..
#You are amazing #this whole venture is something that I have watched unfold with eyeswide #because I know who much work and heart and passion is needed to make things like this fly in the real world #you are my heroes #and my adoration and respect are yours #interlude press #congrats hunny!
