"And at once I knew I was not magnificent."

A cloudy day that has become a rainy night. Currently, it's 65˚F.

This morning and afternoon I worked on the glyptosaur paper and finally got a rough draft of the whole manuscript together (minus abstract and acknowledgements). Yes, I do not write fiction in drafts, but I do write scientific papers in drafts. Anyway, I also learned that Tor.com will be doing the cover reveal on The Tindalos Asset very soon now, and I spoke with Jonathan Strahan about flap copy. And also had to listen to samples of the eighteen different readers who have been proposed to read for the audiobook of Two Worlds and In Between. Yes. Eighteen different readers.

And that was my day. There was more, but nothing interesting – though meatballs in marinara sauce with mashed potatoes is a truly odd, but not unpalatable, dinner.
