Well, the weather seems to be behaving for tomorrow.

No rain, and below eighty degrees. I can work with that. The real question is, will I die from embarrassment and shame at how neo-SCAdian MORGAN BAROD is? I mean, it’s much more Eastrealm* than Atlantian**, but surely somebody will notice…

On the other hand, my wife and I are mostly just taking a day together in the fresh air; hanging out, seeing people, and hopefully clearing out some of our spare gear and stuff. I’m not scheduled to do anything, and that suits me just fine. I gotta do a working event later in the year, so let everybody else run around tomorrow for a change.

*Basically, the Mid-Atlantic Coast from Delaware to New England.

Nothing better than a doing well by doing good story. Mind you, he had to sue Hasbro at one point, but you always end up having to sue Hasbro. It’s just this thing that has to happen.

In the mail: Stand Still, Say Silent, Volume 4.

I hold out hope that Minna Sundbeng will eventually decide to circle back to this series. I respect her decision, mind you. It’s not my place to tell people they have to produce art that they now find uncomfortable to make.

Started up reviewing the pre-alpha draft of GHOSTS ON AN ALIEN WIND.

Got through the first three chapters of GHOSTS ON AN ALIEN WIND already, which involved breaking up a fourth chapter, then redistributing it. I’m going to be working on this today and tomorrow, but since I’ll be more or less taking the weekend off for family-related stuff, I need to seriously buckle down to it.

If you’re interested in being a reader, let me know: unfortunately, there’s a pretty hard deadline on this one. I need to get this book in the hands of my editor by July 1st. That’s on me, I know.

Gonna try to vendor again this weekend.

My wife and I have an SCA event, and Lord knows MORGAN BAROD is exceptionally SCA-friendly. So much so, I’m mildly surprised nobody I know personally has ever called me on it. I put a lot of people’s grandkids in that book. My wife’s just going to sell some of her jewelry, to make room in the house so that she can make more jewelry. It should be a thing.

Anyway: I hope it doesn’t rain this time!
