Visit Pat Rothfuss’s site for the full details on this calendar of fictional characters as pin-ups!
The quick version is that amazing author Patrick Rothfuss and talented artist Lee Moyer are creating a pin up calendar of fictional characters. They have quite a line-up of authors offering some extraordinary characters. Neil Gaiman, anyone? Peter S. Beagle? Ray Bradbury? George RR Martin! Hop over to Pat Rothfuss’ site for a glimpse of the calendar cover, and a full listing of the participating writers.
The angle for me is that one of my characters will appear in the pin up calendar. I’m not going to post which characater it is; I’ll leave that for Pat and Lee to reveal as the calendar release date gets closer. The only hint is that out of all my characters, there was one who I thought would truly enjoy being a pin up!
The recipient of the funds is Worldbuilders, a charity organized by Pat Rothfuss to benefit Heifer International. Mydescription: help people get a start on the path to self-sufficiency by helping them acquire a cow, or some ducks, or a pig. (Wish I could find a way to donate all my extra Bantam roosters!) Pat has described it as a charity for people who like cute ducks. Here is a baby pictures of my own cute ducks and geese. They are now much larger. Fred has proclaimed them ‘seaworthy’ and when the flotillas is on our pond, the geese are postively threatening.
Imagine gifting someone with their own flock of poultry for meat, feathers, and eggs! Um, mine are only for eggs, of course!
If you’d like to pre-order a 2013 calendar or two for yourself or as gifts for friends, you can do that at The Tinker’s Packs. I hope you’ll enjoy it!
