News

It's been raining off and on all weekend, and we're getting flash flood warnings all over the place. Because this weekend was university graduation on Friday and Saturday, and there were tons of extra people in town, and students packing up to leave, and moving to new places, it was a dark wet hellscape as far as traffic was concerned.

The drought map is shrinking, but Lake Travis still needs more water, while I think we're full up. We did get the electrical work we needed done on the house Thursday. (The electrical riser was pulling out of the roof and needed to be replaced.) The power was off all day so they could do it, then the power company ended up hooking it back up again during a thunderstorm.

* I'm going to have stories in these two anthologies, coming up later this year: The Gods of Lovecraft and Mech: Age of Steel.

* Pentapoda did some lovely Raksura fanart

* I posted this yesterday: http://marthawells.tumblr.com/post/119192066332/why-im-having-trouble-concentrating-this-morning

* On the Roar of Approval For Self-Defenestration by Adam-Troy Castro
You make friends among folks who will not correct you when you step over those invisible lines, but who will instead applaud you, who will react to you most positively when you slip up and allow this ugly lesion on your character to hang exposed. They laugh and clap and tell you that you’re speaking truth, when instead you’re engaging in a little bit of social Tourette’s. They call over others, even worse than themselves, and before long you find yourself playing to a crowd that is itself getting worse and worse.
This applies to so many different situations inside every kind of fandom and outside it.

:D I am super excited to see your Mythos story!

And that Moon and Jade are adorable :3

Also I just this very moment got a notice from Amazon that my Stories of the Raksura book should be delivered by the end of the week!

(This is excellent timing for me, as I was going to have to rearrange delivery, as I'm moving to Canada at the end of the month /o\)

I'm glad it's coming out early, but I haven't even seen a copy yet! At this rate I'm going to have to buy one to send to the Con or Bust winner.

And wow, you're moving to Canada? Did you get a job up there?

What! That sucks :( Hopefully some will make their way to you soon!

And no, no job yet :/ I'm Canadian, and my work contract is up and my Visa is expiring, so it is back to the Great White North for me. At least maybe I can keep my feet dry up there...

I'll keep my fingers crossed that you find something soon. And yeah, this rain is out of control. I wish it had been spaced out over the last few years.
