Hello, good people of the future! (That’s what 2010 is supposed to be, even if we have no robo-maid-toaster-flying-cars to show for it, right?)
I woke up sick this morning, and have spent the whole day in bed, but I’m trying to see it as a good thing. For instance: I get to update my [...]Continue Reading →
As I mentioned the other day, I finished looking over the copyedit of Rhythm & Blues.

Sometime La S worries that she, I dunno, comes across like she’s worked herself into a frothy rage over a manuscript I’ve saddled her with.
