Some Wicked Requests

Check out the artwork for Something Wicked's December issue of which my zombie tale Six Feet Above is the cover story. This month's issue has stories from the following people on the following dates:

Domyelle Rhyse (6th of December)
Sheila Crosby (13th of December)
Tom Jolly (20th of December)
Cate Gardner (27th of December)

And you can read an interview with cover artist Pierre Smit here.

The holiday season is now officially cancelled or I own it, one or the other. And if I own it, does that mean I get to have triple the amount of presents I'm expecting?

As most of you who visit here already know, my book Theatre of Curious Acts (which will be available in hardcover, paperback and ebook - I've seen the awesome wraparound cover for the hardback and it's to die for) is released this December. In the next week or two. Flap, flap, panic, panic. I'm hoping to do a mini blog tour covering about six blogs in January - I figure December will be an internet wasteland -and was hoping it would be okay if I popped over to some of your blogs with one of my silly posts****. I mean, one of my awesomely brilliant posts that will bring in thousands of readers (I only lie on Tuesday's). Plus, I'd love to set up some interviews if you want to ask me any silly questions. I do answer intelligent questions too but cannot guarantee that the response will be intelligent.

So ends this plea.

****An update (otherwise known as one hour later) - the awesome Mark West, Jim McLeod and Chris Gerrib have offered to host my madness in January - I mean my highly intelligent blog posts that will make them famous throughout the world. Looking for three more awesome folk. And the fabulous Pete Tennant over at the TTA Press blog, and Ray Cluley - I can see I'm going to have to be intelligent now. And add Simon Bestwick and Anthony J Rapino to the list.

Thank you all, I've now I have a fabulous wealth of blogs on which to spread my madness.

Wow, thank you Jim and Chris

Pete said...

I'm happy to put my feet up for a night and let you blog on the TTA site should you wish.

Cate Gardner said...

That would be fabulous, Pete. But don't I have to be intelligent over there... Wait... That would be fabulous.

Ray Cluley said...

Pete's pipped me - you're more than welcome at probablymonsters but my traffic tends to come from TTA anyway.

Cate Gardner said...

Thanks, Ray (and we must fix that - your awesomeness should be widely known throughout the universe)

Wow, that makes seven which is more than I even hoped for. Thank you all.

And I can't resist saying this...
I know, Simon, but we're talking about blogs here. Muahaha.

Simon said...

I know. More's the pity. ;-)

Cate Gardner said...

I am evil.

Simon said...

No, you've just been at the chocolates again...

Cate Gardner said...

Hey!!!!!

Simon said...

All I'm saying is, there's a lot of sugar, caffeine and theobromine in a bar of Bournville Dark- enough to make anyone go a bit loopy...

Barry Napier said...

You're always welcome at my place, too!

Cate Gardner said...

Thanks, Barry

Cate - You KNOW you are welcome any time in my neck of the web. You have my email addy. I have strange and wonderful questions.

Cate Gardner said...

Thank you, your Polsonness ;)

Simon Kewin said...

I'm late to the party - pretty much my default position - but I would love to have you drop round chez Spellmaking. Or, if your tour is now full, maybe next time ...

Cate Gardner said...

Thank you, Simon :D That'd be fabulous.

Simon Kewin said...

Wonderousful! I shall think of some inciteful and life-changing questions. How about "Where do you get your ideas from?"

I kid.

Cate Gardner said...

That could take some time to answer ;)

Deborah Walker said...

You're welcome at my place any time, Cate.

Deborah Walker said...

You're welcome at my place any time, Cate.
