I’m pleased to announce that the forthcoming ebook anthology, Speculative Fiction 2012: The Best Online Reviews, Essays and Commentaryedited by Justin Landon and Jared Shurin, will feature one of my posts from last year. I feel incredibly honoured to have my writing included in the anthology, not least because it will appear alongside pieces by N. K. Jemisin, Kate Elliott, Liz Bourke, Kameron Hurley, Rose Lemburg and Elizabeth Bear, to name but a few! So, yes: there is currently celebratory happydancing in the Meadows household.

On which topic: it suddenly occurs to me that, despite having mentioned the event on Facebook, tumblr and Twitter, I’ve neglected to blog about the fact that, as of 4th February 2013, I’m now the mother of a devious and lovely son, whom I’ve taken to calling the Smallrus. So, now you know.

    Congratulations! Both wonderful things. I know I don’t often comment, but I’ve really enjoyed reading your blog over the last six months or so. Best wishes for you and your family!

  2. Kate Elliott says:

    Look how beautiful he is!

    Congratulations! Motherhood, like writing, is arduous, beautiful, heartwrenching magic.

      An excellent way of putting it 🙂

      Oh, that’s an awesome way to put it! 🙂 My mother had seven of us in ten years, no twins, and I know she felt all those things along the way. I am the spinster aunt with no children today, but my sisters have several each mostly and I am sort of…wonderingly curious as I watch them deal with the trials and joys. I don’t always understand, though being a writer I definitely get the comparison, but it sure is a wonderful, painful, heart-full/heartbreaking/heart-flowing-over labour of love through the ups and downs kind of thing. Crazy crazy beautiful, man.
