(no subject)

Beautiful weather = very difficult to concentrate on work. I should take pictures of my plants before it gets any warmer and everything dies.

Please Cease and Desist the top ten things authors should never do to promote their book. She's got the Facebook favorite listed as number one, which is where someone sends you "become my fan!" page suggestions over and over and over again. And then they do it again.

shsilver pointed me to a post at Mental Floss, where one of the questions was "What character from a book would you most like to spend a weekend with?" and one of the commenters answered "Kade, from The Element of Fire." It would be a pretty wild weekend. :)
