Well, I’m off again at the crack of doom. Heading back to Seattle for tomorrow’s signing with Brenda Cooper at University Books. (Dinner to precede, meet at 5 pm on the corner by the book store, or call me.) I’ll work from the home of the lovely and talented on Friday, then make my way toward the Clarion West party that night before returning home to Nuevo Rancho Lake on Saturday.

Got editorial feedback on “In the Forests of the Night”. Somewhat to my amazement, the feedback was positive and quite minimal. I’ll be a lot tougher on myself in the rewrite, frankly. All good. Meanwhile, Green continues apace. This is a pretty good book, truth be told.

I’m tired as heck, and the antibiotics make my mouth taste like pennies, but otherwise I feel rather myself tonight. As usual, expect continued light blogging through Sunday.

>>make my mouth taste like pennies<<

How do you know what pennies taste like? Or have I been missing a delicacy in my life?

You mean you never put a penny (or other copper coin, as geographically appropriate) in your mouth as a child?

Copper just tastes... well, metallic, and meh...

I'll see you at some point this week, but I'm not sure if it will be tomorrow or Friday. One way or another, looking forward to it.
