Well, I’d planned to get started on a new project today, and come back here reporting fresh word metrics and so forth…but that plan got derailed on Greyson’s morning walk, when we were joined by an energetic cutie named “Caper.”
Caper had a collar and tags, but the address listed was for Mississippi – and the phone number reached a woman who didn’t know what I was talking about. So I brought the pooch home with me.
Long story short, some internet detective work* and a phone call or two turned up the correct contact info for Caper’s family. Caper had gotten loose when the EPB guy (internet/power board) left a gate ajar – but she’s home safe, Greyson got a marvelous play date, and all’s well that ends well.
In non-dog-related news, yes, there’s Maplecroft related stuff to report! Namely, you can catch me today over at Nicholas Kauffman’s blog, where he’s kind enough to host a piece on (what I think is) The Scariest Part of that book.
Click here to read it. Go on! It’s not very long, and it includes my Universal Theory of Horror. More or less.
ALSO. You can (and absolutely SHOULD) click right over here to FantasyLiterature.com …where there’s a review of Maplecroft that’s so good, it’s almost too embarrassing to link. But not quite.
I even went ahead and swiped a bit for my REVIEWS page. Because who doesn’t want powers, am I right? Yes, they totally mentioned something about me having powers. For real. I’m pretty sure. (Don’t burst my bubble, man.)
By the way, thanks a million to those of you who are leaving reviews! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it :)

Anyway, I’ll just leave this one a little brief, today. I have some writer-work catching-up to do – you know how it goes…
* I reverse-engineered a land-line number from the address on the tags, and was lucky enough that a family member lives there. Caper’s “grandpa” hooked me up.
