The Vessel of Ra Internet Round Up (Links at Bottom; Thanks at Top)

Again, I cannot thank all of the fine people enough who have helped me get the Klaereon family out into the world and into your hands. There is a rather extensive thank you in the book itself, but briefly here are all the groups who totally rock and deserve a shout out.

The person to whom I owe the biggest debt: my spousal unit, sounding board and love of my life Bryon Stump

The Sugar Quill, Viable Paradise 13, Taos Toolbox 2012, the Unreliable Narrators, the Shohola Group, my peeps from the many Paradise Icons, almost all of my writer Internet acquaintance, supportive agent mates,and that gaming group I’ve been with since 1994.

And truly influential individuals in the writing and inspiration process: Walter Jon Williams, Laura J. Mixon, Chris Cornell, Lauren Teffeau, Miranda Suri, George R. Galuschak, Chia Evers, Yolanda Joosten, Catrina Horsfield, Mark McKibben, and Michelle Weinard McKibben.

And those fine people from the industry who helped me navigate the publishing waters: my agent Mary C. Moore, Kathleen Kubasiak, my cover artist Eugene Teplitsky, Clare Dugmore, Tanya Yakimenko, and my editor Mollie Weisenfeld.

And inspiring authors who have led by example and given me incredibly helpful advice and have been great role models: Jim C. Hines, Caroline Stevermer, Ann Leckie, Steven Gould, Pamela Dean, Kate Heartfield, Pat Esden, J. Kathleen Cheney, Wendy Nikel, Ken Liu, Elizabeth Bear, and all those wonderful people who run the Writing Excuses Cruise.

Wow. Let’s be cliche. It really does take a village.


Now, and this will ultimately become a page unto itself, but if you are looking today, tomorrow, next week, here are all the wonderful people who are helping me get the word out on the Internet. There are at least 3 other things I know about in the ether, and I’ll announce and update them as they come in.
