An August of Bricks

It's going to be hot today. They're calling for a high of 95˚F, and we have a heat advisory. Currently, the NWS says it's 81˚F, with the heat index at 84˚F, but it already feels quite a bit warmer to me.

Yesterday, I proofread "Wisteria" and attended to line edits. And talked with my agent about my next short-story collection (not counting forthcoming Dancy books and Houses Under the Sea: Mythos Tales), to be released by Subterranean Press in 2021.

Today, I work on the glyptosaur paper.

I'm hardly leaving the house these days, except when I can go to McWane.

As I said yesterday: Please have a look at the current eBay auctions, especially the first edition tpb copy of The Red Tree. I'm thinking of this as the Tenth Anniversary Auction, as the tenth anniversary of the book's release was two days back. I'll be doing a drawing or two in the book, and we'll toss in a couple of other extras, besides. All proceeds go to our not being broke, Spooky and I.

Oh, and cats have to eat, too.

  • In the saddle again? Possibly?

    It's a lot harder than I imagined it would be, getting the LJ working again as a going, day-to-day concern. I almost let it lay fallow too long, I…
