I know, I know, I haven’t been blogging lately. Lots going on. But I had to break my involuntary radio silence to remind you that CHICKS DIG GAMING (in which I have an essay titled Who in the Hell is Carmen Sandiego?) is out TODAY from Mad Norwegian Press!

These are the same folks that brought you the Hugo-winning Chicks Dig Time Lords, the Hugo-nominated Chicks Unravel Time, Chicks Dig Comics, and Whedonistas! Chicks Dig Gaming is an amazing, diverse collection of essays about all things gaming (video, tabletop, and everything in between) by a wonderful assortment of female writers including Catherynne M. Valente, Seanan McGuire, G. Willow Wilson, and Racheline Maltese, as well as exclusive interviews with Paizo CEO Lisa Stevens and Dragonlance writer Margaret Weis.

Oh, and an essay by me. It is insane that I’m in this company. 🙂

If you’d like a sneak peek of my essay, check out this video of me reading from it at a DTLAB reading at Traxx at Union Station!

To read the rest of my essay, and to check out the work of all the other talented women in this collection, grab yourself a copy of Chicks Dig Gaming! Hey, it’s almost Thanksgiving, which means the winter holidays will soon be upon us…know any gamers in need of a gift? 😉
