OMFG SQUEE!

When I returned from Dragon*Con last month, I was asked if I would be interested in writing a short piece on it for SFX magazine. My response? Hells yeah! I wrote the piece on a short deadline and completely forgot about it after a few days of freaking out because the mag was paying me for it.

In packing up a few last things for my trip, I threw the latest issue of SFX into my carry-on. Figured it would make good plane reading material. Then I remembered my article! My very first ever piece of paid writing was due to be in this issue! I opened the mag and found it! Right there on page 39 is little old me! Not just my words, but little old Jedi Chef me too!

Check it out!

Look Cleo! It's your lightsaber! I went with green after all! And that's my parade shot - I took it myself!

And check out the italics in the last line on the left. What does that say? I can't quite make it out. Blowncats Revolution? Something like that. Maybe mcdougherty or ceosanna can help?

Oh, and my very favorite werewolf (yes, more than Henry on Sanctuary and even Remus in Harry Potter), George from Being Human graces the bottom of this page! SWEET!

PS-I'm really leaving now, but you know...I haz iPhone, so...not really...

Squeee is not the word! Wish I had a subscrition as the locak B & R doesn't have it on a regular basis.

Thus the OMFG, my dear. And I'll see if I can pick up a copy or two, just in case, while I'm over yonder.

Aw that's wonderful! It is great to see the own writing printed.

A few years ago I suddenly got hooked into the Superman universe and even started to buy comics for a while, and wrote a long letter since I just was so excited. The month after that I read the reader's letters at the last page and wondered why it sounded so familiar... took me a while to realize they had printed my whole long letter. I had neither intended nor expected that, but it was nice!

OMGINORITE?!? I was completely happy with the editing and the pics are perfect! And the whole thing is longer than I thought it would be. So, all in all, see icon.

Woohoo! YES!

I can't make out any of the printing in this image, including whatever italics you were asking about. Sigh. Maybe you can scan it?

The italics read Browncoats Redemption. And as I have no scanner...

Moving on. THANKS! I was pretty stoked!

Thanks. I'm afraid I can't afford to buy everyone a copy, but Border's usually carries it. I just got my subscriber copy last week, so it will likely be in stores in two weeks or so. It's the December issue with Doctor Who on the cover.

I did procure a spare copy here in the UK, and I was thinking about making color copies of the article. I could send you one if you'd like. I still have to mail the thing I have for JP.
