Well, I'm up and dressed. And there's a pre-order page available for Seven for a Secret.

Here's the flap copy:

The sequel to New Amsterdam!

The wampyr has walked the dark streets of the world's great cities for a thousand years. In that time, he has worn out many names--and even more compatriots.

Now, so that one of those companions may die where she once lived, he has come again to the City of London. In 1938, where the ghosts of centuries of war haunt rain-grey streets and the Prussian Chancellor's army of occupation rules with an iron hand.

Here he will meet his own ghosts, the remembrances of loves mortal--and immortal. And here he will face the Chancellor's secret weapon: a human child.

Work on "Smoke & Mirrors," assuming I'm not too deep in post-novel(la) ennui already. The post-novella ennui is not as bad as the post-novel ennui, but it's still pretty darned draining. But maybe I can get the team up the stairs to the cop shop and describe the homicide squadroom and so--into the case.

Oh, and tomorrow can be a work day too, except possibly for running in the morning. In fact, other than Wednesday afternoon and evening, this week is remarkably clear. I need to keep it that way, and hope my brain doesn't celebrate finally handing me and ending for B&JC by going on vacation.

And summer is back.

Do not want.

Fortunately, I decided that the smart thing to do today was not to go hiking, tempting though that is, but stay home and work. And maybe when I have done my work, I can then read a book or take a nap or something else racy and daring.

And you can still ask me a question over here.

But right now I'm going to shower and get dressed and make tea.

Oh, blessed tea.

Ye gods, I'm tired.
