Am I a bad person because, when I realized that we were out of clean table knives, my first thought wasn’t, “Gee, I’d better wash the dishes,” but “My god! We need to buy more knives!”
As advertised elsewhere, I had plenty of help in my office today. Not only did Socks edit my notes and make some very valuable suggestions, albeit for some other novel in progress in another part of the globe, he encouraged exercise! by jumping up onto the printer, where he could reach the red origami crane that (used to) hang from the neck of my desk lamp.
The crane was moved, amid hilarity. Socks jumped down from the printer and re-occupied the yellow pad, well-pleased with himself.
A note of caution to those who may go looking on Amazon for the free electronic copy of Agent of Change. The free copy is still free. However, another copy with the same cover is also now available for the price of $5.10. To the best of my knowledge, this is not (that’s NOT) a legitimate copy of the novel (yes, the publisher has been informed) — do not be fooled, and do not give whoever has perpetuated this…unsavory event any of your money; do not buy this book — you don’t know where it’s been.
If you’d like to make sure you’re getting a correct copy of Agent of Change, you may still download it directly from the Baen Free Library, in all ebook formats known to man or Turtle. Here’s the link.
Also? Necessity’s Child still isn’t the sequel to Dragon Ship. Thank you.

“The Gulf o’Maine, now,” Borgan said, still talking as low as if we were hunting tigers. The Gulf o’Maine’s one of the richest and peacefullest pieces of water in all this world. There’s a lot of angry ocean out there. A lot of angry ocean.”
