Our house-sitter called this morning to say that the page proofs/galleys for Daughter of Hounds had arrived in Atlanta. They are now waiting for me in my office. They have to be back in NYC by September 7th.
I also just sold the Czech foreign-language rights for "Riding the White Bull," which is pretty frelling drad.
It seemed I had a whole lot else to say when I started this entry, but my mind keeps wandering. My thoughts have drifted, like grinding tectonic plates. Ah, well. I suppose that's what the next entry's for.
Postscript: I also didn't get half as much reading done as I'd meant to do. But I did make it all the way through Stone by Stone: The Magnificent History of New England's Stone Walls by Robert M. Thorson (Walker & Co.; 2002), which really was very good, I thought. The book was made all the more enjoyable by the fact that I've had access to several very old stone walls here behind the cottage, convenient visual aids.
