"But tradition is that a betrothed pair may exchange sashes, and thus they pledge their honor to each other, for all to see. I will return you your sash if you choose, for I have no right to wear it, as you have not granted me the right. But I have been honored to wear it, in my people's eyes until you returned...to the Hills and to me, and to hope that your answer might justify me." - Corlath in The Blue Sword

Apr. 6th, 2010 @ 11:31 am New Book! Pegasus
No one has posted in a while, and I am not sure how many here actually read Robin McKinley’s blog. I used to actually follow her blog a bit closer when I wasn’t so swamped with school work, but also that is the life of a student.

Pegasus is complete and will be released in November. The current date on Amazon is 2 Nov, but we will see what happens.

Gave a preview of two pages. You can click here to read that because the images is a bit large.

I am terribly excited. I am debating on Preordering it on Amazon now, or waiting until it gets closer to time.

Jan. 9th, 2010 @ 05:10 am Fanfic: I Cannot Promise
I didn't see anything against this in the community info, so... I come bearing fanfiction!

Title: I Cannot Promise
Author: diacriticalword
Fandom: Robin McKinley's Deerskin
Words: 1377
Notes: Written for Ade in the Yuletide 2009 challenge. The original story is here.

And she promised herself and Ossin, and Ash and the puppies, that she would try to stay here, for as long as the length of their lives; that she could put her strength now and hereafter toward staying and not fleeing. But I do not know how strong I am, she said. I cannot promise..

Apr. 6th, 2009 @ 10:59 pm imaginary dream cast :D

Hi everyone. I'm new to the community, but certainly not to Miss McKinley. I first picked up a copy of 'Beauty' in 2000 and haven't looked back since. I hate that she doesn't get the recognition that she so rightfully deserves. So, in order to feed to my 'Beauty' addiction, I've made a little slideshow/video/what have you. I hope that this is allowed here. If not, I apologize. Anyone else have any dream casts?

....yeah, this is reality of working at home. Too much time on your hands :D

This is a public service announcement (for those who aren't following along on Robin McKinley's blog*).

Robin McKinley's next book is called Chalice and it's going to be released on September 18. Pre-order at Amazon now or ask your local bookseller to order copies in.

It's a gorgeous new fantasy novel about a beekeeper named Mirasol - see the Publishers Weekly review here.

I can't believe I didn't find this comm before! I adore Ms. McKinley, and recommend Beauty for almost every girl age 9+ who asks for a book rec. (I work in a bookstore, at least for five more days.) I also rec The Blue Sword/The Hero and the Crown, and the quote at the top of this comm is, in my opinion, the most romantic thing EVER. Because it made me flail and squee and yet wasn't overly sappy.

So, Barnes & Noble has RUN OUT of Sunshine. It apparently is on several recommended summer reading lists, and we don't have any copies in any of our warehouses!

Please don't take my Sunshine away...Collapse )

I'm a fan of Sunshine. I love that book so much.

So I've been thinking about what Con looks like to me, and how that would appear in icons. I needed to pick somebody who isn't necessarily an attractive person. I picked Daniel Day-Lewis.

Okay, so I think DD-L is smoking hot, but not everybody else does. Therefore, he fits the bill. XD

I also get mad because there are HUNDREDS of 'Twilight' vampire icons out there, but 'Sunshine' is just so. much. better... and it has none. This is up yours, Edward Cullen. ;p

There are just three.
1. 2. 3.
