While I was at Fiddle Tunes, I participated in the band labs! This was when we all got organized under various teachers to learn one or two pieces that we could get up and perform on stage on Saturday the 5th. HUGE fun. :D

Greetings all! I am back from Fiddle Tunes, where I had a wonderful time learning from three consummate musicians in the Quebecois trad genre, and even doing a little bit of playing on stage with our band lab group. HUGE fun and I would highly recommend it for students of all kinds of folk and trad music. Blog posts and pics and video are forthcoming! :)

Today is the day of going to Fiddle Tunes! There will be tea and breakfast, and then there will be packing, and then there will be going to SeaTac to catch the shuttle and head out to Fort Worden. In between all that I'll be keeping an eye out for updates from Dara, and getting in a few last pets of the cat, since I will not see George for a week and he will not see my lap. I WILL have net access there and will probably be posting at least a few updates, but expect my attention to the Net to be erratic. And oh yes: I am ABSOLUTELY taking Jean-Claude. Expect at least one obligatory mammoth selfie. :D

Today's second Boosting the Signal feature is Goody Hepzibah's Harvest Tales, by fellow NIWA member April Bullard! It's a collection of short stories for middle grade readers, and includes illustrations by the author as well. Come meet Goody Hepzibah, and come prepared to learn! http://www.angelahighland.com/2015/06/26/boosting-the-signal-goody-hepzibahs-harvest-tales-by-april-bullard/

For reasons that should be blatantly obvious, I'm feeling pretty awesome about the news this morning. Thank you, Supreme Court. #LoveWins <3 http://www.angelahighland.com/2015/06/26/today-is-a-good-day-because-lovewins/

Today's first Boosting the Signal feature is the new contemporary romance by Elizabeth Harmon! Her hero's a Russian boy--and don't let his job as a stripper fool you. Boy's got some big dreams. Come check them out. http://www.angelahighland.com/2015/06/26/boosting-the-signal-turning-it-on-by-elizabeth-harmon/

This has just been brought to my attention. I don't get to say THIS often, either, but well done there, Kentucky! I'll be adding this to my list of reasons to be proud to be Kentuckian. <3 Thank you, Governor Beshear! http://www.seattlepi.com/news/article/Kentucky-governor-Issue-same-sex-marriage-6351482.php

There are those out there asserting that taking the Confederate flag down from public display equals "cultural genocide". I call bullshit on that. Because I mean honestly, have you MET the South? http://www.angelahighland.com/2015/06/25/on-the-matter-of-southern-pride/

Story
Tagline
I write SF/F novels as Angela Korra'ti (self-pub) and Angela Highland (for Carina Press)! And I'm a raving fangirl for Newfoundland and Quebecois trad music!
Introduction
Hi, I'm Angela Korra'ti, Anna the Piper online and Anna to my friends. And if that wasn't complicated enough, I also write under the name Angela Highland!

I'm a computer geek, a writer, and an amateur musician, living in Kenmore, WA with my partner Dara, our housemate Paul, and assorted computers, instruments, and pets.

I'm a science fiction and fantasy writer, and my official website is right over here: http://www.angelahighland.com/books/faerie-blood/!

Book 2 of Faerie Blood's trilogy, Bone Walker, is in progress and will soon be joining Faerie Blood for sale, targeted for Spring 2014.

My high fantasy trilogy, Rebels of Adalonia, is also available from Carina Press! Book 1, Valor of the Healer, is now available. Book 2, Vengeance of the Hunter, will be releasing on April 28, 2014!

I'm liberal, agnostic with pagan sympathies, feminist, and queer-friendly, and sometimes I'll talk about that.

I'm a breast cancer survivor, and had reconstruction surgery following stage 0 DCIS.

I'm a mighty geek. I love me some Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica (old AND new), anything by Joss Whedon, spectacularly bad movies, and the old-school cheesy goodness that is Irwin Allen and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.

I'm an amateur musician, and I favor Irish flute, piccolo, and guitar as my primary instruments, with a bit of octave mandolin and bouzouki on the side. I'm learning a bunch of Irish and Quebecois tunes and am on the hunt for more!

I'm a big fan of Atlantic Canadian folk/trad, and a huge fangirl for Great Big Sea in particular. I post a LOT about that!

And I'm also passionately in love with the entire genre of Quebecois traditional music--and for the groups Le Vent du Nord, De Temps Antan, Genticorum, Les Charbonniers de l'Enfer, and La Bottine Souriante in particular! All this awesome music is inspiring me to improve my French, so sometimes French will show up in my status updates. (Note: I make no promises that the French will be GOOD! ;) But I'm trying! Francophones, please by all means, correct my French!)
Bragging rights
Author of two released novels, with three more on the way; breast cancer survivor and survivor of too much other medical crap to recount
Work
Occupation
Day job, QA Engineer; also, I'm a novelist, with self-published work as well as a trilogy with Carina Press!
