Tags:cancer, health, personal, publishing
Pardon this administrative announcement, but it has come to my attention twice in the past few weeks that people looking to invite/include me in professional opportunities have passed me up because of my health situation.

I am quite happy to report myself sufficiently recovered to do pretty much anything I could do before this last round of cancer, at least in a professional sense. So if you were thinking of asking me for a story for your market, inviting me to be a toastmaster or GoH at a convention, asking me to teach a conference, spotting me to a first class Mediterranean cruise, or even simply taking me to lunch while you pass through Portland, I am pleased to be fully available subject to the ordinary constraints of scheduling, suitability of the opportunity, and so forth.

And if need be, please pass the word. I'm back.

I am happy to hear this news. If you like, I could pass the word around to the various Minnesota SF convention (Marscon, Minicon, CONvergence, Diversicon, and Arcana) in my official capacity as Convention Liaison of the Minnesota Speculative Fiction Writers. I'd love to see you come up here and be a GoH.

I would be extremely pleased for you to pass the word around Minnesota. (Oddly, I was supposed to fly to Minneapolis next Monday, but the trip was just recently cancelled.) Thank you.

Amen.

Watching you get better makes me smile so much it makes my face hurt.

Well, Yay, dammit. I kinda thought so, but it's nice to see it laid out in black and white.

I recall seeing you working a charity auction in Wellington, when you were nowhere near full strength. So you're now available to do more? Tell me you don't have some extradimensional brain extension that enables you to write 35 hours a day while also holding down a day job and doing all the other stuff you have to do.

So we could have you down to Austin for that MMA cage match between you and Kinky Friedman, then?

Sounds lovely, but for serious, I'd have to have someone else swinging the tab before I could do such a thing. You kids have fun!

To Whom It May Concern:

Let it be known that jaylake was as normal as Hisself has ever been, on display for all to see at the Omaha Beach Party this week.

He is, indeed, back.
