Couple things to talk about today. Numero Uno: while “The Case of the Little Bloody Slipper” will be available at The Book Smugglers tomorrow, my Inspirations & Influences essay is up today, should you be interested in reading it. I discuss how the story came to be, the kind of female characters I wanted to write about, and why it’s not enough to just retell Romeo and Juliet when the only change is that Juliet’s a robot.
Second, Halloween is over. I know, sadface. I had a pretty low-key Halloween myself (dinner, costume bowling, eating candy while watching the most recent episode of my latest obsession, How to Get Away with Murder), and I figured I’d post a few pictures of my Casey Becker costume cause, you know, why not?
Now that I’m done with that, I’m going to go collapse face first into my bed because I’ve been up all night and I’m exhausted, but feel free to comment about your own Halloween shenanigans. Pictures get you extra kudos.
