Friday!

Jack the cat Update: Jack has a bad habit of trying to attack your hand when it's on the bannister as you're walking downstairs. This feels like tiny warm hands grabbing your hand from behind. Basically I'm glad I know the house is not haunted. Also, we were watching TV after dinner on Tuesday night and he jumped up on the table and dunked his stuffed mouse in my ice tea glass.

Stupid human trick update: On Wednesday night, I was trying to cook even though I didn't feel that great, and managed to knock a spoon up and get boiling hot gravy on my hands. It didn't do any damage, just hurt enough to piss me off. So last night we had Panera for dinner.

Question: I did a Big Idea Post on Whatever on The Siren Depths and I got this question from @PrinceJvstin and wanted to go ahead and answer it here:

Got a question. Given the events in the third book, and how it ties into Moon’s origins, without spoilers, how much of the "revelations" did you have in mind when you started the Cloud Roads?

I hadn't fleshed out everything, but I knew what had happened to Moon's original court. I don't think I had worked out all the details of what happened when Sorrow left, but I knew she hadn't stolen Moon and the others kids, like Stone had suggested as a possibility at one point. I think that's about as far as I can go without spoilers.

Signing: I'm doing a signing at Murder by the Book in Houston tomorrow (Saturday) from 3:00 - 4:00 pm for their local authors day. A lot of authors will be signing throughout the day, and if you're out of town, you can use that link to order books and get them personally signed, and the store will ship them to you.

eBooks for The Siren Depths: EBooks are starting to gradually appear on Kindle and most recently on iTunes. Nookbooks are available at Barnes and Noble's UK site, but not on their US site for some reason. Some irritating, glacially slow reason. The ebook is the cheapest, and DRM-free, at the Baen Webscription eBook Store.

Miced tea?

Ah, thank you!

Hi :)

I just finished reading The Siren Depths and I loved it.

Are you willing to answer one kinda-spoilery question about names?

Cluchmates have related names, right? What's the connection between Celadon's name and Moon's?

Thank you! Glad you enjoyed it!

The answer is that clutches don't always have related names. It's kind of like a fad, that not everybody follows. Sometimes the names might be related to parents' names, or some members of the clutch might be named after other Raksura.

You know that means that Jack loves you, right? :)

I'm so glad you weren't burned! That could have been terrible.

I'm kicking myself that I won't have time to read Siren Depths until January. Dang, dang, dang!

I hope you enjoy it in January! :) Yeah, the holiday season is always kind of busy and this one seems worse than usual.

I should post more pictures of Jack, he's getting bigger.
