Myth - spring blonde

(no subject)

I've never pimped this author before, but I've really enjoyed his Goblin books. Jim Hines (aka jimhines) is a very funny author whose blog is great to follow. He talks about writing, publishing, and just life in general as well. It's great.

I can't wait for his new series to come out some time next year. It's all about the fairytale princesses, but in a very different sort of way, and I'm very eager as you should know this is precisely the type of thing I dearly love.

He's doing an auction right now, proceeds to go to a national domestic violence group. As the bidding price goes up, he's planning on throwing in additional prizes. The main thing though is a signed reviewers copy of The Stepsister Scheme (dude, I'm really hoping I'm getting all these names right).

^-- here is a link and pic pimp of it. If you have some extra money or something, this would be a really good cause to use it for and you'd get a book and other cool prizes out of it.
Myth - spring blonde


I was just going to pimp myself today, but I read a brilliant fic today and thought I'd pimp it out as well.

Title: A Fresh Start
Author: dickgloucester
Summary: Neville, Snape and Hermione return to Hogwarts after the summer. Some things have changed in the post-Voldemort world – how do they cope? (Response to prompt 12 on the Potter Place Fall Challenge Prompt List.)

This story is funny, sweet, touching, funny, and just all around wonderfully written and I think all of you should read it.

And now the self-pimpage.

Title: Lips of an Angel
Pairings: Vikor/OFC, Ron/Hermione, Viktor/Hermione.
Summary: His name never sounded so sweet, coming from the lips of an angel.

Have you ever had a story you know for a fact isn't your best, but you love it desperately anyway? You smile fondly whenever you think of it and it would make the top five of your favourites you've ever written? Well, this is one of those stories for me. Every time I hear the song, I think fondly of the story it inspired even though it isn't my best written story.

Do you have a story like that? *curious*
