catvalente (Catherynne M. Valente) is having some financial trouble at the moment, so:
Starting Monday, I will start posting chapters of a full-length novel version of The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making. I will be writing it in real time, posting every Monday. It will be free to read–but please know that the sheer calories to make my brain create it require funding, and I would very much appreciate your support. Pay whatever you like for it, whatever you think it’s worth. It’s kind of like an old-fashioned rent party. There’s a button at the bottom of the post to start things out.Meanwhile, fans and friends have set up adoptingcat.
Also-meanwhile, coffeeinhell (you may remember me raving about the marshmallows from Polidori Chocolates) is between jobs herself, so if you've ever wanted to order a dark chocolate S'mores kit or H.P. Lovecraft truffles, the time has never been better. (Someone had sent me pomegranate marshmallows of hers--I don't think she's currently selling those--and I pretty much just sat there and ate the entire bag of six in one sitting. They are big and fluffy and AWESOME and I'm going to try the vanilla ones as soon as I can.)
