My desktop is fixed and being set back the way I like it. The temp box I was using at home was so slow for a GUI. It took longer to fix the box up as I had some technical issues I won’t go into on this blog, but there was a lot of hardware swapping and testing. For a few days, it looked like I’d have to get a brand new system, but thankfully, I averted that costly need with m4h m4d t3ch ski11z.

But this delay had started to thin down my buffer. Also, an anthology I have been working with, A Rush of Wings, is having some manpower issues even though it’s due to be released when MY book is to be released. Basically, we are down a few pieces and my short story, “Stone Ice Raven,” needs a little work. I really want to get this book out too, because it will be my third published piece so far this year.

I wanted to be done with my massive editing for Trolley, and my publisher is already asking me fro a blurb and a bio. I got some preliminary confirmation I will be doing an autograph session (thanks, guys, for taking care of that without me asking), and having the release party with my publisher (hooray!).

In addition to “Fireside Meanderings” I will be taking up some of the Balticon Podcasts again shortly after a seasonal delay by Dancing Cat Studios. I have a decent microphone now, and will be able to do more from home.

On top of that, I am working Katsucon and dealing with post-con planning for pre-K18. It never stops when you’re this high up, and by fall of 2011, we’ll be already working on preliminary Katsucon 19 in 2013. To give you an idea, Katsucon already has guests lined up for K18, we just don’t have signed contracts yet because we’re working on making them better, and until we have a signed statement, we can’t go, “Hey, Suzi Sakura of the Sexy Electric Mandolin will be coming to our con!”

Yes, I am a busy bee.
