FUCK, YEAH!!!
Thank you, Issa Lopez for breathing new life into this series and making such a wonderful bridge between the old and new.

I'm so excited for what she'll create, the people she'll bring along with her, and for the opportunities this creates FOR her. 🖤

Someone who was not my publisher set up a fake preorder for my latest book on Amazon.

Some of the information from the fake preorder, including a completely different item in place of the cover art, was imported into the real item.

If any of you is a real person who works at Amazon and can fix a listing after it was targeted by a scam like this, please let me know ASAP.

Yes, both my publisher and I have already reported it.

@bogiperson @bookstodon Wow, yeah, and didn't Amazon get its start as a bookseller. Ironic. I wish you well. I can't imagine the frustration.

Bad Hair Day

This female northern cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis) is looking for kind of rough or maybe she's into goth culture. Maybe she got something oily on her head.

@stina_marie @horror I love a couple on your list in particular----Session 9, A Ghost Story, A Tale of Two Sisters, The Innocents. Oz Perkins's I am the Pretty Thing... is wonderful but I love just as much his Blackcoat's Daughter which I think is underrated. I watched The Crescent (2017) today which was a slow creep but ultimately devastating. I like good indies when I find them and Bad Things was one of those, directed by Stewart Thorndike (2023).

Jamaican Easter Traditions:

In the past, it was traditional to set egg white in a glass cup on Holy Thursday evening. On Good Friday morning, predictions would be made based on the pattern or shape of the egg white. For example, a ship meant travel.

We used to have a dogwood tree in our yard in South Carolina where my father had been a pastor. When I asked him about it a couple of weeks ago when my sister and I went to visit, he said the cross had been made of dogwood. Here's a little more about the legend, some of which he conveyed to us. I liked reading about Jamaican traditions. (One of my fave cakes to make was Hummingbird cake--Jamaican I believe?)
