Personal Digest Saturday: July 26 – August 1

Life news this week: 

  • I had an interview with a media person from Vox Media this week, but I don't know when the interview will be posted. Soon, probably. It's just about asexuality and my book. 
  • My narrator has been cast for my audio book! Audible assigned me a lady narrator named Reay Kaplan. Here's her other work
  •  I'm gearing up for PITCH WARS, which is a fantastic contest I was part of last year. I'm a mentor in the contest and I'm encouraging agent-seeking authors with a completed manuscript to apply to me when the contest opens. I got selected randomly to be a featured mentor on a video interview, so I did the group video chat interview this past weekend and it was a blast. Sometime next week I think, our videos will be released and you'll get to see me talking the Adult category with host Tonya Kuper and other Adult mentors Eden Plantz and Amy Reichert. 
  • Went to the doctor one more time. They said I have a vitamin D deficiency. Hooray, more pills to take. 
  • I ate at Five Guys with Jeaux this week. We went to his house to watch the first live shows of America's Got Talent because we are still nerds, and watched some Legend of Korra: Book 3.
Places featured: 
  • The Asexual Agenda featured me in their linkspam for my post on "but babies!"
