Progress: Short Story Collections:
I have finished compiling the first volume, which includes all of the stories included Adventures in the Liaden Universe® Numbers 1-8, and Calamity’s Child. Still needed: Authors’ Forward; title.
All finished and sent in. I’ll let y’all know when it’s online.
Progress: New Tech:
The new Acer ultrabook is very nice; I made recovery DVDs; weeded out the stupidest of the pre-installed programs; used Explorer for its One Purpose in Life — downloading Firefox; downloaded and installed LibreOffice; Thunderbird; Eset; and synced my bookmarks and passwords across Firefoxen. I installed a pleasant desktop photo. I still need to make templates in LibreOffice, but, really, we’re just about ready for prime time, here. The ultrabook rejoices in the name Number Ten Ox, and has received the Coon Cat Cheek Rub of Approval from both Mozart, who is a keen judge of processors, and Socks.
The coffeepot is a joy and a marvel. Coffee for everybody!
Tomorrow, a foreword! And a title, too, dern it. Then, on to compiling Volume Two.
I really need to finish putting my room in order. No, really.
Need to post a want ad.
And I need to get in touch with a guy about a t-shirt.
I’m going to retire to the couch with a glass of wine, a novel that I didn’t write, and quite possibly a cat or two.
