Not a bad birthday.

All things considered, very much including the minor detail that we’re in the middle of a pandemic and there was nowhere for me to go. But my family did a video call, and there was cake, and the book cover’s finalized (you can see a lower-res version on my Patreon), so all in all: not a bad day. And fortunately I don’t feel that much different, which is nice.

(E-ARC) Book of the Week: Mamelukes.

I know, Mamelukes is currently only available as an E-ARC. It’s also Jerry Pournelle’s conclusion to his Janissaries series. So if you can wait, click below; and if you can’t, click above. Problem, as they say, solved.

Tweet of the Day, Don’t Watch This If You Have Coronavirus edition.

Because ‘wheezing badly at this’ is not an exaggeration. Saw this on Twitter via somebody or other last night at 1 AM or something like that; not sure who. Heck, I was barely coherent enough to save the link.

03/27/2020 Book Report, FROZEN DREAMS.

I haz book cover! Shaenon Garrity finished it up, several months ahead of schedule because she’s cool that way. Do consider her for your future illustration needs; the entire process was smooth and professional, from start to finish. And just in time for the Kickstarter, too. Which starts in four days. Whee!

…No, I don’t know if that’s a happy whee, a stress whee, or a panicky whee! Maybe all three? It’s been a long day.

03/27/2020 Snippet (Final), THE WOLF-MAN OF WESTHAVEN.

I powered through and finished it up. Gonna polish it a bit over the weekend, then make it this month’s Patreon short story. I should just really concede that I don’t do a mere 3K word short story a month over there anymore.

Taking it easy for my birthday weekend.

My birthday is, in fact, tomorrow. There was to be a party at a clubhouse with cake and beer and people ribbing me about becoming fifty, but then all of… :waving: …this happened and we’re back down to cake. This isn’t a whine or anything, because I wrote all of that without coughing once and that’s something that far too many people can’t manage right now. “At least I have my health” isn’t just a commonplace sentiment at the moment; it’s a heartfelt sigh of relief.

So I’m just gonna hang loose this weekend. Seems smart.

‘Be My Baby.’

I’m not really thrilled that YouTube assumed that I would like this. More accurately: I’m not really thrilled that it was so right about it.

Be My Baby, The Barberettes
