Welcome back to Links! I know I just did one of these last week, but it has felt much longer. Maybe it’s because I’ve been quite busy.
I also went to the mall over the weekend. I can’t remember the last time I’ve been shopping, let alone an actual mall. I know TikTok has been abuzz with the tweens invading Sephora for skincare brands and I can confirm that it’s very real.
As someone who gets overwhelmed in chaotic, crowded spaces, I was disappointed that things I wanted were all out of stock, I wasn’t able to leisurely take my time exploring the fragrance section, and that I lacked the patience to both dodge around girls testing skincare products and find a Sephora person to ask about additional stock. So I grabbed the one thing on my list I could find and tried to get out of there as fast as possible.
Did you know that romance author Nikki Payne is a tech anthropologist for the White House? That’s so cool! And also I want to know more about tech anthropology.

I can finally announce I was asked to be a panelist at this year’s TBR Con! This is a completely free virtual event that will stream live on YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook on January 26th at 11am Pacific Time.
The panel is called “Cozy Fantasy’s Rise — Grimdark’s Demise?” and I’ll be talking with five other fantastic cozy fantasy and/or grimdark authors, moderated by reviewer extraordinaire Mihir Wanchoo. We’re going to have a lot of fun with this one.
Date has passed obviously but it will remain online to watch at TBRCon2024 | FanFiAddict.
