- I keep on waiting for my authors' copies of the Spanish and Catalan editions of "Jin Shei", which have been promised as due "any day now" - instead, today, I received three copies of the paperback edition of the ITALIAN translation. And very handsome it looks too. I have a hutch on my desk in the office, with a pair of partitions with bevelled glass doors where now my books live - I'm rapidly running out of space. One of these days I'll take a pic of it and post it here. Just for fun.
- It's hot hot hot and it's going to stay hot for another week, so the forecasters tell us. And then, next Saturday night... look away, aeriedraconia... the minimum is supposed to drop to 44F. Here comes fall...
- And there's another damned mouse loose in this place. I go to sleep at night in mortal fear of waking to one of my beloved cats dropping a decapitated or, worse, live mouse into my bed as a present. Bleah.
- I thought another chapter was neatly snaffled up, but I thought of something different to replace a plot mcguffin I had in there, so I have to go back and fix that. New wordcount tomorrow. Promise.
In the meantime, I"m going upstairs to watch some mindless TV.
