Square Pig in a Round Hole-September 8, 2018

Square PigNaming a band is an act of concentrated creative expression. Square Pig in a Round Hole exists to reward five favorite band names each week. Winners are (usually) listed alphabetically.

Selection is wholly unscientific and subject to whim, with a bias toward wordplay, humor, and local flavor. In most cases, I won’t know anything about the bands at the time of selection. Thanks to the Seattle Times club listings for abundant source material!

RCCC 2018My publisher, Not A Pipe Publishing, has a booth at Rose City ComicCon this weekend and did a well-attended panel yesterday on Women Authors in Science Fiction and Fantasy featuring several of my sibling authors. I was unable to attend but my book is ably representing me. (Read to the end for an event where I will be present.) Meanwhile, nothing stands in the way of band names:

Afterlife Giftshop

Best idea in ages: after the tour and lunch with your departed loved ones in the celestial cafe, pick up a souvenir magnet or snowglobe to remember your visit.

Animals in the Attic

Might be mice. Could be squirrels. Possums are possible. Really, raccoons? Llamas unlikely but don’t underestimate them.

Into the Cold

Summer’s finally over. Here we go! (Countdown to complaints about rain: 3, 2, 1…)

Tough Times

I like to think it’s a particularly courageous and unflinching newspaper.

Turbo Snooze

Power nap turned up to 11.


Shameless Self-Promotion: On Saturday, October 6 at 2:00 p.m., I will be reading and signing my new fantasy novel Daughter of Magic at The Neverending Bookshop. Joining me will be Mikko Azul, author of The Staff of Fire and Bone. Come say hi!
