Happy New Year everyone!

This past year has been pretty good to me, overall. I changed jobs and I'm really loving my new job. I'm working on websites for teachers (professional development, so far) and it's a big change from working for telcos. I feel like what I'm doing now is something people will actually use and care about, plus the atmosphere at the new place is so much better. It's a smaller company so it feels less like I'm lost in a crowd of employees. Also, I'll be getting my own office (everyone has their own office) I just have to wait for them to build the extension since we're out of space.

I had a major writing slump for most of the year, but I'm over that now as the last post can attest. Finally found the right mix of antidepressants to get me where I need to be.

In terms of writing, I should have a few more professionally published works coming out next year - a tentacle anthology story, the end to the Machinist/Inquisitor trilogy, a couple other things are in the works including a novel. Fanfic-wise, I've got two Teen Wolf fics I'm in the middle of, I just need to finish them which involves figuring out how to get from point A to point C. I'll get there eventually.

I'm getting married Nov 1, 2014 so the new year promises to be full of wedding planning fun times. I've got 90% already planned. Mostly we just need to pay for things. It's going to be a fun time.

I set up an etsy shop to sell the chainmaille jewelry I've been making. I've got an application in for Colassalcon's artist alley, which I'll be going to either way. I'm staffing Rainbow Con in Tampa in April. I'll also be at Anime North, as usual, celebrating the 10th anniversary of Yaoi North. Hopefully should have some big things going on for that. I may be at a few other cons since I've been helping my friend Erin with her artist alley both for Pixel Visions.

Apparently I'm a complete and utter twit and forgot to subscribe to the Hannibal Exchange and only just now realized "hey, shouldn't stories be out by now". >.> Fail.

But anyways, I received a brilliant, lovely fic from Luvkurai called Acceptance and my own story Blood Born, featuring wendigo!Hannibal, is up as well.

Now that I've finished addressing all 95 of my Save the Date cards for my wedding, who wants a Christmas card? International peeps are welcome. (I've already got one going to Canada) I figure if I ask now, it might actually get done before Christmas... unlike last year... >.>

If you want to send me a card back, that would be awesome. I love getting Christmas/Yule cards.

Comments screened, so leave your address below and let me know if you want mine.

I was at Youmacon this past weekend, helping my friend Erin in the artist alley. She sells 8-bit and 16-bit Perler bead art but she specializes in 3D sprites and sculptures, which leads to pretty good sales. (Her shop is Pixel Visions.) Friday was slow sales but then it picked up Saturday. Seemed like everyone just wanted to circle the first day and decide where to spend their money before committing.

I was hoping to make it to the yaoi panels but sitting around all day selling stuff turned out to be more exhausting that I would have expected. I did get to try Pizzapalis (sp?) which is a really good Chicago-style pizzeria in Greektown in Detroit. There was also a really good french bakery next door which provided pastries for Saturday and Sunday's breakfast.

I can now say I'm an expert at circling the Detroit Renaissance Center looking for open parking lots. >.>

I picked up some cool stuff in the artist's alley. I got four pieces of art from Yun Peng. You can see the Sakura piece I got as a present for my twin on her homepage. She had a really cool Loki piece that I got for my friend Kaela and two matching original pieces that will eventually decorate the walls in my house.

Cogs N Creatures had amazingly cute plushies. I picked up a Loch Ness and a Bat. Hopefully her etsy shop will restock soon cause she had an octo plushie that I wanted but she was sold out of everything and gone on Sunday before I could buy one.

Big shout out to daunt who was the ONLY person selling Teen Wolf stuff and thus I had to fangirl at her and buy lots of her stuff.

Probably one of the most impressive shops I found was Little Creations by AnyaZoe. Erin bought me a Thor from her and it's just the cutest little crochet doll ever. Erin and Candie (the twin) both got Ursalas which were phenomenally well done. I'm going to be picking up more of her stuff for Christmas presents once I get paid tomorrow.

All in all, it was a decent con, though helping Erin has really given me the bug to sell my own stuff (chain maille jewelry and other crafts) at cons. Maybe next year. For now, I have a shit ton of stuff I need to be writing.

There are many delicious fics being posted over at KakaIru Fest for the team bingo challenge. My team, Team Unusual Relationships, is available here. I did two fics for it Cabin in the Woods (based on the Stockholm Syndrome prompt) and Tiny Spaces, Warm Beds (based on the Bodyguard prompt).

I haven't posted in forever and keep thinking I should fix that and then forgetting. So, things...

1) I turned 30 on the 13th. Wheee! Going along with the joke that everything stops working after you turn 30, I fucked up my knee that week and it's been off and on special since then.

2) I got engaged! Also on the 13th. There is no fun story because my boyfriend is incredibly awkward at romance, but he's cute so I'll keep him. Apparently he asked my twin advice about it before Christmas so he's been pondering how to propose since then. I get my ring tomorrow and we're shooting for around Halloween 2014. For those interested, there are pretty pictures on my planning board at http://pinterest.com/gryvon13/wedding-ideas/

3) Medical fun times! I've had stabbing pain in my stomach since around Christmas, which has led to many, many doctors all of whom have no fucking clue what's going on, so IBS is the current theory. I killed my $1000 deductible in March, which made paying for my colonoscopy/gastroscopy much cheaper. Killed off all $500 of my FSA card earlier this month. 15+ pills a day. Whee fun.

4) I both like and hate my job at the same time. We just switched to using a new system, which is mostly in python. I tried learning python once and hated it, so we'll see if they'll keep me on front-end development, which I love (HTML/CSS/Javascript/PHP) or if I'll have to pick up python. Ugh. I think part of my discontent is the need to switch to a stronger anti-depressent and/or change what birth control I'm on, now that I've got metformin to help regulate hormones from my PCOS.

5) I haven't been writing much. Stuff for the KakaIru Fest Bingo, SmutFest, one piece for publication with many more I need to work on.

6) Teen Wolf! I watched it all in one weekend and I'm totally an addict now. It, Hannibal, and True Blood are the only shows I watch religiously as they air now. I got the first two seasons of Teen Wolf for my birthday and I much appreciated the shirtless montages. Sooooo glad Jackson is gone though. So glad.

7) Welcome to Night Vale. I love this. I kept hearing it mentioned on Twitter (*cough*@Cthonical*cough*@plaemon*cough*)

Weird Yaoi

So I'm doing a panel on weird stuff that occurs in yaoi anime/manga/fandom. The panel is appropriately titled "Lightbulbs and Corn: Strange Yaoi". I've covered most of the basics, but I could use a few more slides. So...

What's the weirdest thing(s) you've come across in yaoi or slash fandom?
gryvon: (Default)
Yaoi North, a subsection of Anime North, (which I run) is looking for panelists. No previous experience is required, just a love of yaoi and an interest in sharing that love with others. All aspects of yaoi fandom are available to talk about - favorite fandoms, writing, fanart, culture, history, and even fandom meta. We're open to pretty much anything.

Four panels earns you a free Anime North t-shirt. Five panels gets your registration refunded in full and possibly some other cool swag.

Panel registration is available at http://www.anpanels.com/. A list of currently suggested panels and general panel discussion is available on the Yaoi North sub-forum.

Anime North is held May May 24 - 26, 2013 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The main portion of the convention takes place at the Toronto Congress Centre and Doubletree International Plaza Hotel with the Yaoi North portion at the Sheraton Toronto Airport. More information about the convention can be found at http://animenorth.com/.

Weight of a Gun II is out, which includes my story The Inquisitor, the sequel to my story for Weight of a Gun I, The Machinist. As part of the release I ended up doing a lot (for me) of press. I have a new respect for people who blog daily/weekly/etc. For me, coming up with stuff to talk about is hard, 'cause I keep thinking I'm going to come off as pretentious or a ponce or something. >.> But anyways...

Cole interviewed me for the Armchair Reader and as a special bonus there's a contest to win a free ebook every month for all of 2013: Interview with Gryvon + Giveaway

I was at Bending the Bookshelf talking about Re-imagining Your Own Fiction.

Finally, I was on the Storm Moon Press blog talking about Dark Fiction.

The tentacle porn anthology All Wrapped Up released today. It includes my story "Dark Covenant". Summary below:

My story, "The Machinist", from the Weight of a Gun Anthology (gunkink themed) is now available as a single download for a whopping $1.49. If you're interested, it's available in eBook format here.

Here's the description:

In a nightmare world where the things in the dark are large and hungry and humanity has been driven back to the tribal and savage, a man like Avery Belfour is an asset. Avery is a machinist, one of the few left with the knowledge to keep mechanical devices—in particular, guns—in working order. But being in such high demand comes with a price: Avery is kept as a prisoner under lock and key.

When a rival colony raids the compound Avery is kept in and breaks him out, Avery has a brief hope that his incarceration is over. But it turns out that his saviors have just as much need for his services and are just as unlikely to give him the chance to say no. He is dragged away to meet the dark and deadly Harrow, the leader of this new colony. Harrow is a hard man, made so by his circumstances, but Avery wants his freedom, and is willing to do anything to secure it.
