Hump Day Yapping


Happy Hump Day! Hope everyone had a fantastic Oscars weekend and that all your weeks are going well. (And yes, I'm firmly on the side of Team Gaga and always knew she had an amazing voice.) We have lots going on, so let's get to it, shall we? We shall!

First up, the yap is large and in charge over at Feed Your Head and also at the San Diego Examiner. Some new questions were asked of moi by author Henry Hertz, so check it out!

After that, check out what Bitten By Books had to say about Universal Alien.

Speaking of checking things out, have you gazed upon the beauty that is the cover for Alien Separation yet? If not, you can gaze here and also at the Premieres page, where you also get some hint about what's coming in Book 11 for Kitty and Company. And, please remember that pre-orders are vital these days, and do your girl a solid and pre-order Alien Separation TODAY either online or from your favorite bookstore!

Then head over to The Galaxy Express and see what they're recommending if you liked any or all parts of Jupiter Ascending.

Next, see what awesome author Alan Black thought of Touched by an Alien. And speaking of Alan, he and I and three other awesome authors will be signing at The Book Vault in Mesa, AZ on March 28. Want to be a well-read signing attendee or just know who you're not able to see in person? In addition to checking out Alan's books at his site, also visit the amazing and wonderful Anna Questerly, Kris Tualla, and Deena Remiel.

And now for some science. Per Science News there's a giant hydrogen cloud headed for the Milky Way. But don't worry that Sandy and the Superconsciousness Seven are going to be an issue -- estimated time of arrival is a long time (30 million years) away.

In Hollywood news, and because I love me the good visuals, check out the first look at Jason Momoa as Aquaman over at the Nerd Repository where it's even bigger than here at the Blog. I still think Momoa looks far more like Namor than Aquaman, but he definitely looks totally badass. I may not be looking all that forward to Justice League, but I'm definitely looking forward to all the stills of Momoa, Cavill, and Affleck.

That's it for today, but as always, more's on the way. So, enjoy the downward slide towards the weekend, and let's be pre-ordering readers out there!

Love,
Gini

Cover Premiere Friday

Happy Friday! Hope everyone had a great week. It's been busy over here in Gini Land, and, as our title suggests, we have a cover premiere for all y'all. So let's get to it, shall we? We shall! 

Leah Cannon attended all of the workshops I taught at the SDSU Writer's Workshop in January and she blogged about it, too, over at Leah Can Science. Check it out and discover some of the wisdom I extolled.
 

Then check out Heroes and Heartbreakers to see why they recommend Touched By An Alien as one of their book to read as well as re-read.
 

After that, author Henry Hertz's newest book, Monster Goose Nursery Rhymes from Birch Tree Publishing is now available. It's full of fun stuff for all of us into geek and nerd culture, so have a looksee!
Next up, check out a new review of Kaiju Rising: Age of Monsters from United Federation of Charles to see what he thought of all the stories, including With Bright Shinning Faces by moi writing as J.C. Koch.
 

Now for some science! Per IFL Science, mathematician and Father of the Computer Alan Turing’s code-breaking papers were recently discovered by some workers at the multimillion pound restoration project of Bletchley Park. These papers will be going on display soon, right after the Dazzlers have a look at them.
 
Universal Alien is turning out to be fact and not fiction according to a report from The Spirit Science. I'm sure all y'all will agree with me when I say that I told you about it first!

Happy Face Friday

Happy Friday the 13th! Hope everyone had a great week, no one has anything nasty happen to them today, and that all y'all are ready to celebrate Valentine's Day and/or Single Awareness Day this weekend. Go out and have some fun with your someone special or just with some good friends. And remember that the A-Cs and Poofs love each and every one of you, and ACE says you never walk alone. Of course, Danger Day and Romance Weekend aside, there's lots going on in Gini Land. So let's get to it, shall we? We shall!

I finally have my Amazon Author page up and active, so head over there and  follow me on Amazon to get the updates for when to pre-order my upcoming bookie-wookies. Also, don't forget to follow TeamGini @RealTeamGini on Twitter as well as my Facebook Fan Page, Gini Koch: Hairspray and Rock 'n' Roll, and the Alien Collective Virtual HQ Fan Site. There's lots of cool stuff all over!

Speaking of which, Kelsey is hard at work getting the Sightings in the Wild page updated with all the pics from Joseph (and a few I remembered to send over, too). So, keep your eyeballs over there, because if you sent a pic, it will be getting up for all to gaze upon its wonder!

Speaking of bookies wookies, check out what My ParaHangover thought of Alien Proliferation.

Then, head over to Heroes and Heartbreakers to see what books they're recommending if you like book-to-movie and/or TV properties.


Next up, see if you can spot Universal Alien (below) sharing the same shelf with some cool books. Check out the full post over at Pleated Jeans for more fun "section reassignments".


Recently one of my Team Gini members was in a car accident and his car is in the shop. He's looking for some help to pay for his car to get fixed. If you're able and so inclined to help out, he'd very much appreciate it, and at certain donation levels you can also get free stuff from moi. It's all over at Go Fund Me.

Next up, check out a list of top ten reasons why books matter over at the Design Observer Group.

Did you miss getting your Gini fix in December and January? Fear not, because, I will be out and about in March!

Next up, I wanted to share that yes, the universe is smiling down at us. The Hubble Telescope took a picture of a cluster of galaxies and it looks like a giant smiley face. ACE and Sandy definitely approve.

I have seen the cover of Alien Separation and it...is...AWESOME. Cannot share it, or my other announcement, with all y'all just yet, but the very MOMENT I can you know that I will.

Until next time, enjoy your weekends, and let's be readers out there. Peace out, my li'l gangstas and I'll catch you on the flip side!

Super Team Gini Go!

Happy Friday! Hope everyone had a fantastic end of January, enjoyed Super Bowl parties (how about those commercials and dancing sharks, huh?), and that February's going great for one and all. As always, of course, there's a lot going on in Gini Land, so let's get to it, shall we? We shall!

Had a wonderful time at Mysterious Galaxy signing with the ever awesome Erin Quinn. For more pics, check out the photo gallery over at Demotix taken by Stephen Prendergast.

The San Diego State University Writer's Conference was awesome as well. In addition to getting to do a panel with The Awesome Editor and workshops with Marsheila Rockwell, I got to hang out with the wonderful Jonathan Maberry, which was excellent icing on an already delicious cake.

I have an announcement I'm dying to tell all y'all, but I can't do it just yet. But there's another announcement I CAN do right now, but that'll come a little bit later.

Before then, head over to Bull Spec and check out which anthologies The Exploding Spaceship thought were the best of 2014, which includes Two Hundred and Twenty-One Baker Streets, that has my short story, "All the Single Ladies" in it.

Then see what Night Owl Reviews thought of Two Hundred and Twenty-One Baker Streets, too.

After that, head over to Larissa's Bookish Life and see who she picked for her Top 5 Favorite Heroes from Books, Movies, and TV. Then see who she chose as her Top 5 Favorite Villains from Books, Movies, and TV, too. Also, Larissa's mom has been ill, so any good thoughts and such that the rest of the Alien Collective could send to her would be really great.

And, let us once again gaze upon the wonder that is the Alien Tango cover over at Fantasy Art Village, just because we can.

Speaking of announcements, The Night Beat was off the market other than in the Sensational Six boxed set. While the boxed set is still around for a very limited time, in honor of Night Music showing up soon, the second edition of The Night Beat is now available at all the usual suspects (Amazon, B&N.com, Smashwords, Kobo, iTunes, Mysterious Galaxy, The Poisoned Pen, anywhere I am, and so on).

Next up, it's time for some science! Check out the hugely exciting Super Saturn over at Science Alert. Then go to IFL Science and read about an asteroid so big it has its own moon -- and they both flew past Earth. Lastly, head over to Truth Code and find out about the second Earth some scientists have found.

Hugo Nominations are open, and great author and wonderful editor Joshua Palmatier has some suggestions for nominations. If you're eligible to nominate, please remember that many of your favorite authors, like moi, have plenty of books and shorts we'd love to get recognition. And if you're nominating, let me encourage you to nominate Sheila Gilbert from DAW Books for Best Editor, Long Form. Because she is.

Now it's time for the announcement I can actually make right now. Team Gini is expanding! This is a great thing in that it's going to give me more writing time, meaning I will have more output (at least, that is the sincere hope) to keep all y'all in reading matter. So more of the team are taking Front Line Duties.

First off, Team Gini now has an official email address: TeamGini @ ginikoch .com. You can reach any and all the team using this email. Team Gini also has a Twitter account: TeamGini @RealTeamGini. Again, you can reach everyone via this Twitter handle. We're continuing to use the Facebook Fan Page, Gini Koch: Hairspray & Rock 'n' Roll (https://www.facebook.com/GiniKochAuthor), as the main coordination area on Facebook.

Now, for the Team itself:
--Joseph Gaxiola, my Personal Assistant. Joseph's going to be taking over some of my social media (though all y'all will still be able to reach me any time of the day or night just like always, LOL), and all personal appearance on-site coordination should run through him (joseph @ ginikoch .com).
--Colette Chmiel, my Distance Assistant. Interview requests, guest post requests, and appearance requests should be sent to Colette (colette @ ginikoch .com), with a cc to Joseph (joseph @ ginikoch .com). Have a con or an event you'd love to have me at? Send Colette the information and she'll make the inquiries.
--Kelsey Rowe, aka The Sightings Girl. Yes! Sightings in the Wild is actually being updated on a regular basis now! So, any pics you've taken of me, with me, or of the bookie wookies or swag in the wild should be sent to Kelsey. If you include your name and location of the pic, she'll add that on, too, and get them up onto the site in a timely manner (kelsey @ ginikoch .com).
--Glenard Malcom, aka our Newest Techno Mage. Glen is handling all things website other than the Sightings updates, so if there's a problem you spot on the website, Glen's your mage (glenard @ ginikoch . com).
--Edward Pulley, aka the Poof Factory. All Poof (and other Depot) orders will still run through the website, but I just wanted to be sure Edward got his Poofy Making due. And yes, while we make no promises, we are considering some of the Specialty Poof Requests some of you have made.
--Lisa Dovichi remains the Head of Team Gini, and she still won't tell you what's coming in all the books, but she's also still really open to being bribed. Just sayin'... (lisa @ ginikoch .com).

Please welcome the new Team Gini members (via their own special emails, not mine, please and thank you, from them AND me, LOL) and enjoy fantastic reading weekends. Peace out, my li'l gangstas, and I'll catch you on the flip side!

Love,
Gini

I Ain't Ded 2015

Happy New Year Hump Day!

Yes, yes, I know...it's been the new year for, um, well over half a month now. But I was terrifyingly behind on Alien Separation and, let's face it -- when it comes down to the choice of you hear from me or I get the book done, I kind of know where everyone votes.

BUT the book is in, and I'm feverishly working on other things, but there has been and is JUST SO MUCH going on that I have to catch everyone up. Before, you know, you don't hear from me for another week. Or so.

First up, a reminder for San Diego peeps that I'll be signing Universal Alien with awesome author Erin Quinn at Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore on Thursday, Jan. 22nd, at 7:30pm. The bookstore ran out of copies of Universal Alien when I was there in December, so if you're one of the ones who missed out, come on by again and get a signed copy!

Then, the next day, Erin and I and a host of other authors, editors, and agents will be at the San Diego State University Writer's Conference, Jan. 23-25th. It's a great conference and it's not too late for you to race over and attend. If you're attending, I'll see you there! I'm doing 3 workshops with awesome author Marsheila Rockwell -- Finding Your Voice, Short Story and Novella Writing, and World Building in SF/F/H -- and a panel with my awesome editor about how to keep a long-running series fresh, so if you're attending, definitely come and see the me!

Speaking of Universal Alien, DAW Books Reviews has it featured, so join in the discussion over there!

Speaking of yapping, check out my guest post over at the Southern Writers Magazine blog, "Kill Your Darlings".

Next up, see what Booked and Loaded thought of the audio version of Touched by an Alien. Then see what Zwartraafje thought of Alien Research. (Yes, this is in Dutch. And yes, Google Translate remains your friend.)

Then see what 25 series, including mine, Shadowhawk's Shade wants to read in 2015. There are some great ideas if you're looking for more, more, more to read.


Next, see what books and anthologies The Arched Doorway said were the best of 2014. And see which books Larissa's Bookish Life chose as her favorites of 2014.

And check out who Larissa's Bookish Life chose as her favorite heroines!

Now, see what Mass Movement thought of Two Hundred and Twenty-One Baker Streets. Then check out all the short stories and novellas Tangent Online says are must-reads, which includes most of the stories in Unidentified Funny Objects 3, including mine, "Live at the Scene"!

Next up, see what awesome author Alan Black thought of Alexander Outland: Space Pirate, by G.J. Koch, aka moi.

And now let's have a slice...a Slice of SciFi, that is. There's lots going on over at Slice, and it's never too late to join the discussions. So, see what the collective Slice reviewers chose as 2014's Best of Television, Best of Movies, and Best of Games, Books, and More.

Then, while still over at Slice, see my review for "Into the Woods". Then check out my 5 Episodes In reviews for Elementary Season 3 and The Librarians.

And now for some science! Check out the largest picture ever taken, of the Andromeda galaxy, thanks to NASA over at Scoop Whoop. It's totally amazing. Then check out 24 Things That Will Make You Re-Consider Your Entire Existence over at BuzzFeed. Then finish up over at Yahoo News where they share that some scientists think we'll find signs of aliens within our lifetimes. (I know...we know they're already here. Look at that picture right above this -- I promise you there's at least one troubadour in that picture...your job? Figure out who it is.)

Amazingly enough, that's it for today. And the last few weeks. And the rest of this week, since I'll be in San Diego. But, as always, whether it's the next day or the next week, more's on the way. So, enjoy the downward slide towards the weekend and let's be happy new year readers out there. Peace out, my li'l gangstas, and I catch you on the flip side!

Love,
Gini

Belated Stuffs and Happy Everythings

Here's all I want for Christmas...
Happy Monday Before Christmas! And happy only Monday of Hanukkah. And Day After Winter Solstice. And whatever it is for every other holiday going on, just over, or coming up. (I like covering the bases, me.)

I know, I know, long time no hear from me. But hey, I was on a super book tour for Universal Alien, seeing wonderful Members of the Alien Collective in Very Good Standing all over the place. Plus I'm *cough* still working on getting Alien Separation done and to the Awesome Editor, so, I've been kind of busy.

Speaking of the book tour -- we sold out of Universal Alien at Mysterious Galaxy. However, San Diego Area Peeps, don't despair if you didn't get a signed copy. Because I'll be back in January for the San Diego State University Writer's Conference on January 23-25, where I'll be teaching several workshops.

But I'm also going to be back at Mysterious Galaxy on Thursday, January 22nd, signing Universal Alien along with awesome author Erin Quinn, who will be signing her new release, too. So, double the authors, double the fun! Come see us, and if you saw me already, come see me again, 'cause you know it'll be fun! (And I've heard a rumor there could be chocolate. And wine.)

And speaking of busy, there's lots that's been going on in the 'verse. And before we go to radio silence (yeah, yeah, again LOL), there's just a tonnage of things to catch all y'all up on. So let's get to all the rest of it, shall we? We shall!

First up, some totally cool news over at Tor.com. Barnes and Noble selected Universal Alien as one of their Top 10 Picks for December! And they're not alone. Check out some of the latest awesome reviews of Universal Alien over at Under the Covers, Alternative Worlds II, and Fresh Fiction. Then see what other December DAW releases, including UA, are out there at DAW Books Review.

Then see what Lu's Buchgefluster had to say about Alien in the House and Alien Research. Yes, still in German, but Google Translate remains your friend!


Then see what Alternative Worlds II thought of Alien Collective. And then see what Bookshelf Bombshells thought of Two Hundred and Twenty-One Baker Streets.

After all that review reading, head over to the Paranormal Cravings Shifters, Weres, and Supes event and find out some stats about Kitty. Then hit That's What I'm Talking About for their Mistletoe Madness Event, and find out what Kitty's New Year's Resolutions are. There's also a contest that's open internationally, so get entered to win!


I've made the decision that my story in the Temporally Out of Order anthology is going to definitely be an Alien Series short -- and it'll be connected to the events Alien Separation. But if you didn't get in on the Kickstarter, what can you do? Well, you can still act like you got in! You can still get in on the Kickstarter by pre-ordering the three basic reward levels (ebook, paperback, and ebook/paperback duo) at the Zombies Need Brains online store
The Kickstarter backers (including those who get it at the online store) will get the anthology early, in addition to helping support the small press and some of the other extras (like a bookmark, etc) that will come with the Kickstarter edition. Such a deal! And, trust me, you want in on it.

Up next we have a really cool thing -- Indie Bookstore Dog-Eared Pages has announced their top 15 indie authors for 2014...and I made the cut! If you're looking for new authors and more reading material, I can heartily recommend everyone on the list, especially Sharon Skinner, Kris Tualla, and Alan Black (but you can't go wrong with any of them).

Feeling the need for an auditory experience? Check out the Two Gay Geeks podcast where they talk about many things, my latest bookie wookie among them.

It's the last couple of days where you can get the Sensational Six boxed set for $0.99. So if you haven't gotten your copy yet, don't wait! Check out an excerpt from my part of the set, The Night Beat, over at fellow boxed set author Sasha White's blog.

And here are the buy links that get you six great stories AND a large (and the only) excerpt of Book 2 in my Necropolis Enforcement Files series, Night Music:
Kobo
Amazon US
Amazon UK
Amazon Canada
Amazon Australia
iTunes
Barnes and Noble

And now for some science! Check out what some folks at NASA are trying to create in Venus' solar space over at io9 -- Cloud City! (I dunno if it'll work. I see their idea and all I can think of is the Hindenburg, but...) Then check out the lengthy, but very interesting, Dark Matter discussion over at Space.com.

Oh my, is that (finally) it for today? I think that it is. Well...almost. I just want to take a moment to once again thank you for being the best fans in the world. I hope for all of you the merriest and most wonderful of holidays, whatever holidays you celebrate. And if you don't celebrate a holiday at this time, celebrate the wonderfulness that is you. May your days be merry and bright, and may 2015 be as wonderful a year as you are and bring you not just what you want but what you need.

So, until next year (barring something major happening :-D), let's be happy, healthy, and hopeful readers out there. Peace out, my li'l gangstas, and I'll catch you on the 2015 flip side!

Love,
Gini

On the Road Again

Hey there, everyone! Well, this is the last missive before I go off on Book Tour. I'll be checking in as I can, but not nearly as much as recently. So, you know, don't worry or anything. :-D

Actually, come see the me! On Saturday, Dec. 6th I'll be at Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore in San Diego, CA at 2pm for the Universal Alien Party. We'll have games, prizes, and cake! And if you're out of town and missed getting a signed book ordered, Mysterious Galaxy has you covered, just call or email and order!

After that I'll be bouncing around Los Angeles, and then off to Las Vegas, for my signing with half of the Wyked Women Who Write -- T.L. Smith and Sharon Skinner. We'll be at the Barnes and Noble Bookstore in Henderson, NV, from 1-4pm on Saturday, Dec. 13th. Again we'll have prizes, games, and cake, but we're also doing a workshop as well as signing books, so if you're an aspiring author, or an author who just wants to hear more "this is how we do it" stuff, come on down, too!

Then I'll be home again, in time for my last official tour stop at the Barnes and Noble Bookstore at Desert Ridge Marketplace in Phoenix, AZ, at 7pm on Wednesday, Dec. 17th. Prizes and games for sure. Still checking on the cake situation, but there will at least be candy, so it's all good!

Haven't read Universal Alien yet? Have read it? Either way, check out what Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell thought of it! Also, Universal Alien needs your vote! Head over to Addicted 2 Heroines and vote for Kitty and Universal Alien as the Hottest Heroine Cover of 2014!

BTW, if you missed seeing the me at the Poisoned Pen on Tuesday, you can still check out the LiveStream recording! It's broken up because of, well, honestly, a crazy dog lady. But most of the interview and party is there, and we had a blast, so check it out!

After that, see what Lu's Buchgefluster thought of Alien Diplomacy and Alien vs. Alien. And yes, yes, bring along Google Translate. Then see which anthology I'm in that The Passionate Foodie chose as one of the best of the year.

Speaking of being out of town, the appearance rota never stops (not that I'm really complaining -- I like getting the chance to see all y'all out in the wild), so mark these upcoming 2015 appearances on your calendars now.

Book signing with Gini Koch & Erin Quinn -- Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore, San Diego, CA, Thursday, January 22n, at 7pm

San Diego State University Writer's Conference -- Jan. 23-25, San Diego, CA; teaching Finding Your Voice, World Building in SF/F/H, and Short Story and Novella Writing workshops

And last but not least, let's have some science! See what the Huffington Post article about the Black Hole Universe (well, that's my take on it, anyway) has to say about all things wormholey. Algar thinks you need to educate, just in case.

That's it for today, but more's on the way next week. So, everyone enjoy the race to the weekend, see some of y'all at Mysterious Galaxy, others all over L.A., and some more of y'all in the Vegas area. And for the rest of you, let's be Universal Alien reading readers out there! Peace out, my li'l ganstas, and I'll catch you on the flip side!
