Spring is sprung; the grass is riz*

So, Steve and I have been out and about and in and around, we took a drive up into the Western Mountains on Saturday, I’ve been working steadily on the next novel (still lacking a title), Steve has finished up “Shout of Honor,” and now I’m moving on to making that into Adventures in the Liaden Universe® Number 29, with a planned release date of May 15, while he reads the new beginning of said titleless book.

All of this is enough to keep us busy, but it makes dull blogging.

I can give you a little excitement today, so hold onto your hats.

Here’s the cover for the upcoming chapbook.


*Full verse:
Spring is sprung; the grass is riz
I wonder where the birdie is.
They say the bird is on the wing,
But that’s absurd.  The wing is on the bird.
–Spike Jones**

**There’s some dispute about the author.  Some folks say Ogden Nash, but I had always heard it was Spike Jones, and that’s what I’m going with.

  1. I may be wrong, but IIRC, the Ogden Nash version goes like this:

    Spring is sprung, the grass is riz,
    Where last year’s careless driver is.

  2. Yey! It’s a kindle on Amazon.co.uk pre-ordered!
    I hope it will also be in print.
    Thank you, Sharon and Steve.
