KERMIT!

Another bucket for the "it never rains but it pours" brigade. (I like rain. I consider it a positive saying.)

It is with extreme pleasure that I may now share that two of my Promethean Age novels--commonly referred to as "the effing Faerie books"--have sold to Liz Scheier, of ROC/ACE. The books in question are Blood & Iron and Whiskey & Water, and I'm very, very, very thrilled.

No publication dates yet. I'll keep you posted.

He was all alone. He was in a long decline.

Thinking how happy John Henry was when he laid down that hammer and he died.

Congratulations to my mother, Karen Westerholm of Eiledon Briards, and her big beautiful boy Ch. Eiledon's Tison de Lindeau, who went Best of Breed at the Buck's County Kennel Club show on Saturday. And was pulled in group.

He's two and a half. That dog is going places.

I think I liked him better when his rice crispies were talking to him.

Mail: Hee. Well, dispensed with that already, didn't we?
Today's words Word don't know: laddered, minotaur
Tyop du jour: A clack-haired girl with Snow White skin (still all about the hair)
Darling du jour: Matthew disentangled himself from the devil

Interesting research tidbits of the day: Um. Well, I looked at lots of pictures of Greenwich Village. I hate writing cities I don't live in. Even if you more or less know a place, it's much easier to write it well when you can jump out of your chair and go look at the thing you're describing, and sit there and feel the air, and remind yourself how it smells.
Other writing-related work: Talked to my new editor. Wheee!
