OK, this is it. Your very last reminder to go, Go! here and pre-order a signed copy of Ghost Ship. Tomorrow — Saturday, April 30 — is the very last day ever that you’ll be able to do this. Pre-orders almost match pledges, so we know there’s somebody — or even somebodies — out there who will be Mighty Disappointed, as we say here in Maine, if they don’t Act Now.
In other news, it’s Friday, and that? Is a fine thing, indeed. I met Steve at Cacciatore’s after work for a late lunch, early dinner, then came home spent the BN gift certificate my faculty gave me for
Secretaries Administrative Professional’s Day. Well, done Faculty! Canny shopping gained me The Perilous Gard (Elizabeth Marie Pope), I Don’t Want to Kill You (Dan Wells), Where the Mountain Meets the Moon (Grace Lin), The Secret of Roan Inish, Ondine and! I pre-ordered Pat Wrede’s Across the Great Barrier, the (eagerly awaited, in these parts) sequel to Thirteenth Child. Four books and two selkie flicks.
Plans for the weekend include the ever-popular laundry; the lawn-tidying postponed from last weekend; working on George; and finishing up with Treasure Island. Maybe I can convert a chapbook or two, if I get up early. Um? I have to outline a talk that I agreed to give on. . .next Thursday evening.
Well. Maybe the chapbooks will wait.
I haven’t forgotten the Closet Auction; plans are to get those started early-to-mid next week.
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend!
