my stomach hurts

I talked with my editor at Penguin a few hours ago and learned that I should have a couple of copies of Murder of Angels, "hot off the presses," by Thursday. I don't think I'm ready for this. It's like having to attend the high-school graduation of a kid to whom you almost died giving birth. Well, I couldn't actually know that it's like that, having never given birth to a biological child, much less attended said child's graduation, but maybe the simile works anyway. I'll have copies of the book at Dragon*Con. And the release date is September 7th, I think. Wow.

Spooky's talked about doing dolls based on various of my characters for a couple of years now, but I think she's really going to make a couple soon. She's considering doing a Dancy doll first, and then a Narcissa Snow doll. If this happens, we'll probably have one to show at Dragon*Con and take orders. Or something like that.

"The Pearl Diver" has finally left my hands and gone to the editor of FutureShocks. I spent a sizable chunk of the day on it. The final word count was 6,732 words.

And here's a link to the website for M. Night Shyamalan's The Village, because I was asked to provide it. I can only hope the film creeps me out half as much as the trailer and website has.

    We reached it 80˚F and sunny. Not a cloud in sight. I've started a new story, "Two Monsters Walk Into a Bar." It's a variation on a title I keep…
