I also not only walked to the store, but walked the dog on a longer walk than we usually go on, and therefore got about 5 miles in today. This pleases me. And Ted, who is a hero of the revolution, broke out the new vacuum cleaner and holy cow do the carpets look splendid. He also worked a miracle on the kitchen. My hero!
He also went into Cork yesterday and returned with a copy of pbray's new novel, THE FIRST BETRAYAL, which I am now slavering impatient to read. Lucky for me, I am nearly done with PL and have a train or bus ride on Saturday which I can indulge myself by reading on. Yay! V. excited! Yay!
Hey! I FORGOT!
THE FIREBIRD DECEPTION, by Cate Dermody, should be available as of yesterday, in romance sections everywhere! Go forth! Seek it out! Purchase its darling little self! Endear me to my publisher by making me a best-seller! Heck, endear yourselves to me by making me a best-seller! :)
The following people get copies of WINTER MOON: Rhonnie, for bringing up scarring childhood memories, thank you so very much; Lessa, for a very funny story; hawkwing_lb for sympathy for stupidity in the sun; vg_ford for pagan little brothers; and madmiss for none-too-subtley encouraging me to get *out* of the *house* (I will come to the festival with you for at least one day!). Please email me your addresses (to cemurphyauthor at gmail dot com if you don't have one of my other addies) whether you think I have yours or not, because I'm very bad about holding onto addresses. I'll get the books out to you...eventually. :)
(ETA: Buh! Ardian, my Chance artist, just pinged me about doing the inks himself! Buh! That would rule! Buh!)
