Here's a few things worth checking out!

If you're on twitter you probably already follow @FangasmSPN (If not I recommend following because it'll keep you up to date on all things SPN). Or, you might follow their blog Fangasm. It's run by two super Supernatural fans - Lynn Zubernis and Katherine Larsen.

Well, they are now on LJ - fangasmspn. They have recently created a new community here (though they have been involved in fandom for a long time) and have posted some information about their latest book Fangasm: Supernatural Fangirls

If you're a fan -- of SPN or anything -- we think you'll recognize yourself in Fangasm. At the very least, you'll laugh at our misadventures as we fall in love with Supernatural, discover the wonders of online fandom, and then hit the road (and the books) to figure out what the heck is going on with us!

This is Jared doing his impression of a 'Fangasm' for them. (ha! I love Jensen's face!). I think I have a fangasm every time I think about how generous the cast and crew have been with their time - not only for this book, but for the future ones also. AND when I think about how much work Lynn and Katherine have done to create these wonderful works for us.

I haven't read it yet, but I love the idea of a journey through fandom and what it means to be a supernatural fangirl. And I think for anyone who feels that fandom has changed them for the better (me me), then this will be a insightful and enjoyable read.

Also! The lovely growyourwings's photography is in the book! \o/ Check out her post for more information.

It's available from Amazon if you want to grab a copy. :))

Yeah - but the first time they've created a comm for fangasm.

Oh okay. That write up makes it sound like they're new to fandom or something. LOL!

ha! No. Perhaps I better reword it. It's that fangasm is new here....not them.

I think it's their write-up for the book maybe?

This part: </i>you'll laugh at our misadventures as we fall in love with Supernatural, discover the wonders of online fandom...</i> I mean they've been in the SPN fandom for years.

Yep. And probably other fangasm related stuff. Well, I'm thinking there will be more posts than just this one book. I know they post heaps of stuff on their blog, so maybe some of that will find it's way on there. Maybe?

And...er ...yes. I figure it would be pretty hard to write a book about fandom if they hadn't been immersed in it for years.

I'm so sorry for the confusion. I've PM'd you - if you think I can make this clearer, let me know.

Sorry hon - it can be confusing if you aren't actually looking at the thread!

omfg that picture. ::weeps::
7th-Oct-2013 03:55 am (UTC)
I know! Isn't it a classic!?!

:)

I need to friend and pimp as well. I've already read the book cover to cover the day it arrived.

I'm looking forward to reading the book. I've been reading snippets and it looks like an interesting read indeed.

And yeah - I figure the only way we get to know about new things is to spread the word. (and congrats on the pics <33)

Thanks!

Congrats on having your photos included!

Thanks. :) I was tickled to be asked. :)

I can't believe they've only just thought about setting up on LJ! Obviously I can see why they are doing it now, because they need to use very platform to market their book, but I'm just surprised given how long they've been in fandom that this is their first time here!
7th-Oct-2013 11:33 am (UTC)
Actually - yes. It does seem surprising. I hope they post other stuff to the comm because I rarely check out other blogs unless there's a link on LJ - and it would be good to keep up with their posts.
