antares-rising-deactivated20131 asked: Are you alive? Come back!

Would it worry you if I told you that I’ve been turned into a zombie and am not, in fact, alive?

It’s finals week, so I guess I only feel like a zombie. I’m not actually a brain-devouring undead monster. Yet. Even though I haven’t been updating, I do have a list of posts done up—a paper queue that I just haven’t translated into a Tumblr queue—and I’ve been trying to answer asks when I can.

But, even if finals kill me, I will be back! Expect new posts by the end of next week. You guys are all great—your love of words (and your patience) makes me super happy.

Other things:

  • Yes, Otherwordly is getting published into a real paper-and-ink book, by a crazy awesome publisher by the name of Chronicle Books. It’s going to be gorgeous and I’m so excited!
  • No, the book is not out yet. Yes, I will be sure to let you know when you can buy it. Don’t worry, I’m probably going to be quite loud about it.
  • I’d like to run a contest/giveaway sometime soon, but I’m still thinking about it.
  • I always, always appreciate corrections to my posts. Send your comments along to the askbox or contact the Otherwordly Facebook—they’re super helpful when I make mistakes.
  • You are a really neat person and it’s so great that you’re alive and I guess I just wanted to remind you of that.
  • Have a good day!
