In theory, I now have connected to my author Twitter account @LindaSCowden. Another step is taken along that technological superhighway. 


Spooky Empire is Coming!

Posted in Conventions, Writing on July 17, 2011 by auntiemaimlsc

Mark your calendars for the fantastic Spooky Empire Convention coming to Orlando, Florida the weekend of October 7, 8, and 9, 2011. Yours truly will be putting together and running the Author Track of writers and creators discussion panels for the second year. Spooky Empire is one of the largest horror conventions in the United States, family friendly, and plenty to see and do for all. I hope to see you there!

Holy Mackerel!

Wanted to share a Boxing Day funny with you all that happened today:

Had my day made while shopping when I overheard two elder ladies having the following odd funny exchange:

One picked up some shockingly ugly shoes and exclaimed, “Holy Mackerel!”

To which her friend archly replied, “Would you cuss like that if Jesus was standing next to you?”

Then the first lady quipped, “There’s nothing wrong with saying ‘mackerel’. I think you’re just predjudiced about fish!”

Loved it! That had me smirking all day! They were awesome!

To boldly go … and upgrade to a BlackBerry Bold!

Okay, I’ve never been happier with a gadget in my life, and my phone is probably going to keep its current title, “Greatest Thing I Ever Spent Money On in My Life”, for a long time to come.

Some of the apps I’ve found for it are mind-bogglingly awesome, too. Yes, I have been known to kiss my phone. I just can’t help it.

Congratulations, Sierra on Graduation!

I’m a little early, since graduation is in June, but we’ll both be busier by then, right? Congratulations on winning the war (surviving high school)! I know you’ll aim high and go far, and someday the world will be clamoring to read your stories and poems!

The looong wait for May 7 (or, feening for Iron Man2)

Posted in Happy Stuff, Movies on April 9, 2010 by auntiemaimlsc

I was very late in seeing Iron Man (in theaters back in May 2008). I intended to see it in the theater way back then, but like many movies, it was the one that got away (yes, I miss a lot of things I intend to see). Then I got busy and never noticed the DVD release, either, so…. Suffice to say, I finally saw it in March 2010 (on vacation, and my boyfriend had the DVD). It completely bowled me over, and I became instantly obsessed with seeing the sequel.

Alas, I have a long wait. Yeah, I know, April 9 is not that far away from May 7, but when you factor in how obsession can make time drag, it can seem like an eternity.

Well, I have to run – the people who have been waiting since May 2008 are gathering outside, and some of them have pitchforks…. Relaunch!

It’s here! The newly refurbished and upgraded “world of Auntie Maim”! So give it peek and reset your bookmarks, folks! (The link is over on the right sidebar).

The best part is, I can now update the news page on the go when I’m at conventions, via my beloved BlackBerry!

Major thanks go out to my awesome Webmaster for the overhaul and relaunch!
