So if you wanted to talk to/about/with me someplace a little less top-down and better-organized than the livejournal, it's available for your use. And yes, this is me taking a solemn vow to be better about keeping the damned thing updated, along with my webpage.
What can I say? The workload this past year has been kind of astounding, now that I look back on it. But now, I have no more novels to write until after the new year! Rejoice!
