PRO: My muses. I am eternally grateful for Cristi, Marina, Mayra, and now Sarah. We live in a world where “booth babes” are frowned on and politically incorrect. However, I’d like to introduce you to my world, which tends to be a little different from everyone else’s. My muses read my books. Not because I asked them to, because they like them, they’re my friends, and they support me. They cosplay as Berfemmian, fierce Amazon warriors, because they enjoy it. One person on Twitter this year said my muses costumes make them uncomfortable. My answer, come to a con and tell them how to dress. I won’t try telling them that, but I’m happy to bring the popcorn and watch as they verbally kick your ass. My muses are awesome, fun, and make my life better. They inspire me, like muses should, and I wouldn’t want to do this without them.
