Calling All RT Orphans — Party at #LadySmut During RT Dates

Hey all —

I met someone who once said that the kids without dates for their prom banded together and had a “Loser’s Party”.  The concept has stuck with me ever since.  I don’t really want to go to RT–but I lust for some alternative party to go to.

Well, we at #LadySmut are having our own alternative RT party on Twitter.  Hop on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday to play games and win books.  Meanwhile, if you’re actually at RT but shifting around on ouchy feet while waiting in line for an event–check us out!

Follow me at @madelineiva and follow us at @ladysmut1.  See you Thursday!

Loving the Monster – at Raven.Con

Hi all!

I’m excited to check out this panel LONGING FOR THE LOVE OF MONSTERS at Raven Con this weekend.  Here’s a description of the panel:

Romance and the grotesque in science fiction, paranormal, and fantasy.

Short but pithy.  However, for a fun little peek into what draws us to Paranormal Romance and the love of monsters — check out this blog post I did for Harper Impulse a few years back.

Meanwhile — I’ll have my books and swag at the Charlottesville Speculative Fiction Society table in the distributor’s room.  If you’re at Raven Con — come check it out! 🙂

You Had Me At ‘Psycho-Sexual Unravelling’ RAW: Feminist Horror Movie — Lady Smut

by Madeline Iva There’s nothing like a good feminist horror movie to get you in the mood for Halloween. And such is our society that for the first thirty minutes of Julie Ducournau’s feminist allegorical film RAW, she doesn’t even have to go out of her way to create horror–she just turns the camera on…
