Packing for EuroPrideCon  
It is incredible that an entire year has passed already since we came back from the very first EuroPrideCon in Munich, energized and packed with ideas. I'm not saying that the time has gone by quickly - it was so stuffed in every regard that it feels like a few weeks and a whole lifetime simultaneously.

We have published 'Lucia' and 'Djinni', and 'Softpaw' is right around the corner. Actually, I have packed away the very first copies of Softpaw just a few moments ago. We will be leaving for Berlin on Friday already, so we're all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed when the actual con starts on Saturday. Well, probably not really, cause anything before 11am is way too early in my book.

But we are so very much looking forward to the EPC. Of course there's never a second first time, but maybe this will prove almost as inspiring and affirming than the one last year. Meeting new people just as slightly-off-the-rockers as we are, talking, arguing, chatting together, maybe making plans, comparing, learning.

Seeing you all in Berlin,

Also, another way of getting our novels that I totally forgot: mail us directly, pay us via paypal and we send you the book in the format of your choice. ^^

One of the gorgeous advantages of the way we set up our publishing - there's no one but us deciding on the distribution. :)

Another hiccup. Banks here don't like Paypal as a payment method because of the prevalent credit card fraud by people overseas^^ and they don't like having to start an investigation for 60 days and go through hoops with the big CC companies before being forced to refund the money to their customer. Yes, it happened to me once^^

I don't mean to bore you with details but just to give you an idea how things are in some parts of the world.

No, you never bore me. It's acutally very interesting and helpful! For me, living in Germany, PayPal in particular is extremely useful because it makes international payments so easy. But of course, I can imagine the same ease could turn into insecurity in other parts of the planet.
