Usually I blow my own horn in these blog posts, and rightly so, but today I celebrate the recent accomplishments of my two brilliant and beautiful children, Ben and Rebecca. First up, the socks that Rebecca designed for the 2015 Design a Sock of Contest for the company Sock it to Me- which were third place finishers- are finally here in their true physical form! Show them off to your friends and family- you are sure to have the coolest slidy penguin socks around.

My dear friend Mary Robinette Kowal, the Hugo Award-winning author of a popular series of fantasy novels set in the era of Jane Austen (the titles so far have been GLAMOUR IN GLASS, SHADES OF MILK AND HONEY, and WITHOUT A SUMMER), is playing host to me on her blog this week. Mary has a regular feature she calls MY FAVORITE BIT, which she describes as follows:
A short (400 to 1,000 word) essay on your favorite bit of your new work. This can be a scene, a sentence, a character, or a bit of world-building. It can even be a piece of research that never made it on the page. The key is that it’s something that you love LOVE sooooo much. This is your chance to be enthusiastic and geek out over that favorite thing you wrote but don’t expect anyone else to notice.
