That’s not thunder. . .

So it turns out that the Really Loud peal of thunder that woke us up at 6:11 this morning. . .was an earthquake.  Epicenter in Sidney, 2.6 on the scale.  Sidney’s about 15 miles from the Cat Farm and Confusion Factory.

For the record, I am against this increased trending in Maine earthquakes.

Have I mentioned here that the ebook edition of A Liaden Universe® Constellation, Volume One is now available in all formats known to man from Baen  and also from the Amazon Kindle store?  Well, it is.  The paper book will be on the shelves of a bookstore near you on July 2.

Yesterday was another boring day from an observer’s point of view.  I wrote 3,700 words of climax for Carousel Seas.  Today, with luck and a tailwind, I’ll take care of the wrap-up, and then it will be done!  Done!  DOOOONE!

Ahem.  Except for the final pass-through and patch, of course.  But that’s next week and in-between, there’s a weekend.

Mike the Electrician and his helper, Scott, did enliven the early part of yesterday by arriving to install the two new ceiling fans.  FWIW, they pronounce the Harbor Breeze Hive Series flush-mount ceiling fan Best! Ceiling! Fan! Ever!  We’re pretty happy with them, too.

. . .and I think that’s all I have to report.

Who has exciting plans for the weekend?

I understood the land’s distress.  Nerazi was the second person I’d met in the Changing Land; she’d helped Gran nurse me back from being elfshot and almost dead.  In all the time since, I’d seen her at a standstill exactly twice.

And I’d never seen her afraid.

  1. I downloaded *A Liaden Universe® Constellation, Volume One* from Baen on Tuesday and finished it yesterday. I vaguely recognized a couple of the stories, but I’m still a newbie to the Liaden Universe, so they felt pretty new anyway. Some of them need to become real books, please! Thank you for the enjoyment!

  2. I noticed the Constellation in Scalzi’s new book pile at his “Whatever” blog. Now I just just have to decide whether to get it directly from Baen (like the other Liaden ebooks I have) or the Kindle store (which is slightly more convenient due to Whispersync). Baen has been one of the best ebook publishers for many years, but I think convenience is going to win out.

  3. @John – you can email your Baen purchase to your Kindle for free, through Amazon’s Personal Documents Service (about halfway down this page:

    It takes about 30 seconds longer to download it to your PC from Baen and attach it to an email. You can even put the Baen address in your authorized Amazon senders, and email it directly from the Baen site. I just mention this in case you thought you still had to connect the Kindle to your computer.
