Guys, gals, you can't know how long I've been waiting for W to come about -- and not just because I'm done with school! I have big news. Fun news. An important announcement!
What's Wicked & Tricksy? It's a blog! It's a group blog, even.
Wicked & Tricksy is an initiative by four aspiring writers of speculative fiction to provide a place for the community to gather and share. There'll be plenty of craft talk, asking of hard questions and offering of insight, and we hope that you will be as much a part of it than us.
Four aspiring writers? Yep and we all write a different type of speculative fiction. I'm high fantasy.
My three fellow masters in crime are none other than... *drumrolls*
- Margo, from Urban Psychopomp! Margo is our local epic and urban fantasy expert. She'll rock your socks. Or perhaps roar them off.
- SB, from Writing the Other. SB is in charge of historical fantasy. Her pool of knowledge about celtic myths is endless, I tell you, and never boring.
- Sommer, from Tell Great Stories. Sommer is our superwoman -- or so her current WIP would suggest. She's also funny, sweet and knows more about everything from science fiction to steampunk, without forgetting atompunk or raygun gothic than anyone else I know.
I am excited. This line exists to allow me to take a deep breath before I choke you to death with my excitement.
Because Wicked & Tricksy is meant to be a gathering place for the community, that is our first week's theme. There are also rumours (very, very strong rumours) of a cool giveaway during our first two weeks.
Don't miss the fun. Visit us at wickedtricksy.com on May 9th. Pretty, pretty please?
And if you're afraid you'll miss the launch, you can follow us on Twitter, where fun will be had in the meantime.
Happy W Day, all!
EDIT: I forgot something important! If any of you wanted to help spread the word, we have a whole press kit built to help. Feel free to e-mail me ( claudieawriter AT gmail.com ) and I'll pass it along. :)
