[books] Green day!

It's Green day! My new novel from Tor is released today.

To celebrate, I'm having a virtual release party. There's a photo contest (see below), and I'll be shouting out the word "Green!" once an hour today all day long. Get in on the fun, make a Green post on your blog.

And you're all getting your copy today, right? Powell's | Amazon ]

Green by Jay Lake

Readings and signings: [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ]

Green pre-reviewed — Hee. Thanks, Shawn!

"People of Leaf and Branch" — Short story live at Fantasy magazine. This ties in to Green.

[personal] A day ends

A good day for Green, which swung well below 4,000 in the Amazon rankings. I'm not complaining.

Not such a good day for me. Cancer followup today was sobering. I have an oncologist appointment on Friday to expand on all this. We're closing in on a treatment plan. I'll talk more about it once I've processed this stuff a bit better, both mentally and emotionally.

The people I love are taking care of me. I can ask no more than that.
