There were swans wandering past the bus stop today, just on a stroll with their teenagers.

They waddled up to the bus stop, hung out a while, then headed for the zebra crossing. Cars went past, buses, PEOPLE -- they were unconcerned.

Almost missed my bus because I was so taken with them. I didn't get to see whether they actually used the zebra crossing but they sure looked like they were about to!

I will remember the sound of their feet slapping the pavement in times of need.

Posting a letter. The black wax is actually quite lovely, which I wasn't expecting.

Anyway! ๐Ÿ˜… Sorry for all the self-promotion.

Now back to your regularly scheduled cat-posting. Here's my familiar being way too happy about pets:

Okay so it's Friday 13th *and* a full moon, so it's the perfect time for some black magic!

Check out my novel BOOKS & BONE for a spooky-sweet read today. Necromancy ๐Ÿ’€ , shapeshifting๐Ÿฆ‡ , librarianship๐Ÿ“š -- all the dark arts.

My co-ML messaged me to let me know our pins have arrived.

Me: Ooh! They're pretty!

Her: They're yellow.

Me: I like yellow! It'll stand out against all the black I wear. ^_^

I love my cat so much.

Couldn't get through the day without this little guy purring up at me.

And then there's THE RIVER GHOST, LOVELY, a short story about love and monsters and what a big sister will do for her sibling.

It's only very short but it contains an awful lot of my favourite tropes.

A week ago I went to my first Live Music Thing to see the queer feminist geek comedy band the Doubleclicks.

This was a big deal for me, as someone who is autistic, anxious, and awkward as hell.

It was also magical. โœจ

I wrote about it here: victoriacorva.xyz/2019/08/30/i

๐Ÿ˜… ahhh this is going to be awkward ...

Would anyone fancy supporting me on or tipping me on ? I write a lot of things but ... you know, money.

The cool thing is I cost very little to run, so a small something goes a long way and is very much appreciated! โœจ

Thanks for listening! *sinks into the ground*

Whew! Okay I finally did the thing. Tiny handwritten are on their way!

I need your address still (probably because I took too long and the DMs got wiped ๐Ÿ˜ณ):

@aldersprig
@jake @FiXato
@thelibrarian
@cuttlefish
@Radamanth

All done and in the post:

@y6nH @DialMforMara @justin @DaveHiggins @scribe

I'm sorry for how appallingly long that took me. Next time I will only giveaway premade things!

I wrote a book and it would be awesome if you wanted to buy it! โœจ

It's a high fantasy story following the kind of community of black wizards that adventurers roll up and destroy, and a girl who was born and raised there.

You can read the first 3 chapters for free here (and find buy links as well!): victoriacorva.xyz/books-bone-s

Mental health (-), thank fate for cats 

:blobcatpeek: hi again

It's time for my weekly book promo! I feel very awkward about this but also I'd really love it if more people knew about my book, so ... :psyduck:

I wrote a book. It's fun and sweet and also about an underground town of necromancers. Only the cutest settings for *this* extremely sane and normal writer.

You can try out the first 3 chapters here, and also find buy links! victoriacorva.xyz/books-bone-s

:blobcatpeek: ok thanks i'm leaving now

:blobcatpeek: hello

It's possible that you will love my librarians-and-necromancy fantasy novel, BOOKS & BONE, which is full of ambition and black magic and friendship. It's surprisingly wholesome for a book about 'the bad guys'.

If you like, you can try it out on my site here (where there are also buy links for Smashwords, Amazon, and elsewhere): victoriacorva.xyz/books-bone-s

Thank you for your time.

:blobcatpeek: ok bye

My PDF of 'Can I Pet Your Werewolf' cane today! It was extremely cute and fluffy and I definitely recommend it. The perfect book for when you need something cheery.

I made myself in picrew. Delighted to see I can have both an ace flag and my antlers. ^_^
