We Come From Earth

(no subject)

It's my birthday and I'm 45 today. (Thank you to texanfan and eldritchhobbit for the V-gifts!) I think I'll celebrate by doing laundry. Actually I may go to the Ben and Jerry's and get an ice cream shake later.

Still no news on the prospective lay-off for Troyce. It makes it kind of hard to make plans post-September. The job market here is lousy, at the moment. ETA: Just found out the lay-off is definite. All the talk about letting him stay on was just that, talk. So, things aren't looking so good.

Links: DearAuthor has an article on Steampunk Romance, which mentions Clockwork Heart by Dru Pagliasotti, a book I really enjoyed.

Nathan Bransford is having a Writer Appreciation Week on his blog.

Scott Cupp has a new column at SF Signal: Geek with Lots of Books

Happy birthday!

Still sending hope that your husband will have luck with another job.

Happy Birthday ;o)

I'm so sorry to hear about the layoff, though...

Despite all that is going on, enjoy your day and hopes of better ones to come.

Thanks also for that link to the Steampunk Romance article. It is a genre I'm just getting into and I'm really looking forward to Dragon*Con to explore it more

Happy Birthday!

I'm sorry the universe saw fit to give you a crappy present; wah. But let's hope for windows and doors to open elsewhere, and good year to come despite.

You deserve much good happy!

Many happy returns! (Keeping my fingers crossed for you, that this year brings a good-luck upswing...)

Oh, suck. I'm so sorry. :(

I hope very much that this clears the way for him to find something new and so much better for you both. And I hope you have a very happy birthday and a shiny, fortune-blessed new year. :)

Happy Birthday! Mmm, Ben and Jerry's. Good plan.

I'm sorry about the lay-off news. *hugs hugs*

Happy Birthday but not a very good birthday present for you guys. I understand though, going through it myself. I'll be thinking of you guys.

Happy birthday to you! :D

Oof, what a lousy birthday present.

Happy Birthday!!!

(Sorry to hear about the layoff.)

I hope you have a good day despite the bad news. You definitely deserve to treat yourself today! I hope this closing door reveals an opening one somewhere better.

Happy Birthday!

Sorry to hear about the layoff, I hope things work out well for you.

Happy birthday, and I'm keeping my fingers & toes crossed!!!

Given the news about Troyce it seems a little off to say Happy Birthday...

So instead, wishes that things will work out for you both.

Happy Birthday!

I hope some good job news comes through as a belated present.

Given the way the company is treating your husband, they don't sound like a great place to work in any case.

Happy anniversary of your 29th birthday, Martha! :D

a happy birthday to you. crossing fingers for luck to both of you and i hope things turn around and get better soon!

Ugh! I knew it was your birthday today, but I've been mad busy at work, and forgot to send you birthday wishes.


Happy Birthday!!!!

Ugh. Sorry to hear about the layoff. I hope you manage to have a happy birthday in spite of it.

Happy Birthday!

I'm sorry the bad news got confirmed, but hopefully you'll be able to have a good day anyway.

Damn, I'm sorry to hear the layoff is confirmed. I hope something works out.

And since it should be said anyway, happy birthday!

Aargh. Layoffs suck. I also hope something works out.

I'm so sorry. But at least now you know. Is there anything I can do?

Happy birthday, and I hope you hear some good news soon to balance out the bad.

Hope you have a lovely birthday!

Happy, happy, HAPPY birthday!! :D

Happy Birthday.

I rarely leave comments here, but I love your work. For some reason, I always think my favorite authors are eons older than I am, and not my near contemporaries (I turned 39 a couple of weeks ago).

For your birthday I wish your next book will be a mega-bestseller *with* a movie deal, which will make it unnecessary for your husband to work at all. (It will not make it unnecessary for you to write more, though!)

Happy birthday! Um, the lay-off news probably wasn't the gift you wanted. Sorry to hear about that.

Happy Belated Birthday!

I'm sorry to hear the news. It sounds so very frustrating for you both.
