Wishlist Post

There's a wishlist post being run by [personal profile] marina, and I think it's awesome. I'm going to post this list here. I also got inspired by [personal profile] amadi's wish list.

First off, I don't expect anything. I'm not posting this and then glaring at everyone who doesn't fulfill my wishes as being a big, mean, nasty meanie-headed meanie or anything. I get it. Money is tight for a lot of people. It's just that it's kind of a meme going around and sometimes it's interesting just to see what other people wish for.

Second off, don't feel obligated.

Third off, feel free to post your own wish lists in comments if you want to!

1. Money in the tipjar. Even a dollar or five bucks or whatever would really come in handy right now what with medical bills and everything and me still being unemployed.

2. Really honest feedback on [personal profile] cityofthehand (my novel that I put up on the web for free) and what people liked and didn't like about it, what they really thought of it, if they'd ever want to see a sequel. I'd love for more people to at least read it even if they never give me a dime for it, but I guess that's every author's wish.

2b. Art of any of the characters or settings or anything from my book. I can't draw worth a damn, but I've always wanted to be able to show the world a visual representation of what they look like.

3. Anything from my wishlist on Again, don't feel like you need to get me anything from this list. It's just a list. Of stuff. That I found to be shiny or whatever.

4. Any feedback on my poetry that I've written. It's in this tag

5. The following books: Redemption in Indigo - Karen Lord; Fire Logic - Laurie Marks; Steampowered and Steampowered 2: Lesbian Steampunk - by JoSelle Vanderhooft (wanted the last one for a long time now in a paper copy!)

6. Book recommendations for really good books, especially in the SF/F genres. I'm open to other genres, especially if they're really good, feature women, queer folks, fat folks, disabled folks, and PoC (even better if all of the above!).

7. Coloring books. They're kind of therapy for me. Adult or pattern themed coloring books are the best for me. But any are good.

Have you read Seanan McGuire's October Daye series? Toby is a mostly-fae private investigator and she is KICKASS, and there are four queer characters I can name off the top of my head (though none is Toby).

I recently read and loved Malinda Lo's Adaptation - queer YA-focused sci-fi that is a love letter to the X-Files.
