Thing One: Last year Laura Anne Gilman wrote a terrific series of essential things for the writer in your life to know. Now she’s compiled them into an e-book, so if you’re looking for the distilled wisdom of a former editor turned novelist, this is the place to go!
Thing Two: I have not gotten “Twenty Years After”, the 3rd “No Dominion” Kickstarter story, out to patrons. Mea culpa. :( I have a few more edits to do on it, and the end of the month just somehow got away from me.
Thing Three: On the positive side, I did hit 25K on “No Dominion”! …which is obviously not going to be 30K like I thought it was when I proposed it. :)

Thing Five: YTD wordcount:
