First of all, thank you so much to everyone who’s chimed in with cheers and congrats today. I’m trying to respond to everyone personally, but right now my inbox is a digital Hydra: For every email I delete, two more appear. And alas, I’ve been trying to squeeze some work in too — so I’ve got a bit of a backlog, and I don’t have time to address it right this moment as I still have lots to do before I call this week a wrap. For that matter, I will probably still have work to do tomorrow, but it’ll have to fit itself around the second point of this post.
Point the second: Tomorrow I’ll be appearing at the Northgate Barnes & Noble here in Seattle. Or rather, a little outside Seattle … but if you’re local enough to attend, you probably know what I’m talking about. I am led to understand that this will be a reading with some Q&A thrown in, also with Bonus! cookies and refreshments. The party gets underway at 2:00, so just think of it as an after-lunch speculative fiction dessert opportunity. Further details available here.
Please come out and see me — and feel free to dress up! You’re not required to appear in full-on steampunk regalia, but you ought to anyway. Because it’ll be awesome.
