Real paper-and-ink version of Secondhand Shadow is now on Amazon! I’ve not received my copy yet, and my library is having trouble ordering it, so whatever caused the delay may still be causing problems somewhere — but we are definitely orderable on The Big Book-Ordering Site, so right now life is good!!
(I’ve also been interviewed again, this time on M. Kircher’s blog, so check that out if you want to hear me talk about myself! Also her blogs looks kinda cool on its own, even without being graced by my beautiful face.)
Today is a pretty tough day for me — I have to work a split shift, which means I’m trapped in Montgomery for 12 hours plus commute time, and this is because we’re in the midst of our annual Purgatory Back-to-School Boot Camp, which, as an introvert who abhors chaos, I find terrifying and exhausting. So things like “good news for my book!” are what keep me going. …That and donuts.
My life has been further complicated, though in an adorable way, by this little hitchhiker I picked up off the side of I-85.
We think it’s a girl (hard to tell at that age) and she’s just so tiny and sweet and darling. /wibbles. My sister wanted to name it Oliver, as in Oliver & Company, so now it’s Olivia. She’s living in a large carrier in my bedroom. She smells and has worms but she’s such a sweetheart! I wish we could keep her, but we already have two cats and three dogs. My sister, who owns the house, has vetoed the idea completely, and after all, I can’t afford another cat. I’m barely keeping myself and Lucy afloat, what with her diabetes expenses. So we’re networking, trying to find a home for the little gal. Wish us luck!
