Howard Hughes and the Dreadful Slog

Yes, I am disappointed by the results of the Pennsylvania primary. I don't think that either Clinton or Obama have much of a chance of winning the presidency, and I'm not one of those who sees Obama as some sort of panacea for the ills of this country, but, still. I've been trying to hope.

Yesterday, I wrote 1,125 words on a new piece for Sirenia Digest #30. It has no title, and I'm really not sure, yet, how to describe it.

While I'm thinking of it, here's that list again, those of my books in print, the ones that need to sell, the editions that need to sell (new, not used copies), etc.:

Daughter of Hounds

Silk

Threshold

Low Red Moon

Murder of Angels

Tales of Pain and Wonder

Not much else to say for yesterday. I read a bit of Justine by the Marquis DeSade before I started writing. Last night, I watched two episodes of Deadliest Catch (despite the Bon Jovi theme song), a series I have a peculiar fondness for. My thing about the sea, I suppose. Hauling things up from the sea. The bleak beauty of the Bering Strait.

I think I need intravenous Red Bull this morning... (and it's not even really morning now, as of seventeen minutes ago).

Does this one not count anymore?



I got it new at Hastings (bookstore) last summer.

Sadly, if we are speaking of sales figures, this edition has not counted since sometime in the summer of 2006. Still, I am glad you picked it up.

That's the original trade paperback edition, which Roc remaindered back in 2006. That means, they sold off all the copies in their warehouses to bargain book dealers, Amazon, etc., people who then were free to resale them. Remaindered sales are irrelevant to how an author is judged, by her publisher, to perform in the marketplace.
