The A/C saga continues, but not all's bad...

We thought we had it fixed.

We were wrong.

I ought to have known there was a reason my inner procrastinator bulked at posting the issue resolved, and the saga ended.

The A/C is still on the fritz.

Fortunately, we're not under a F100+ heatwave, and we can actually enjoy cool morning temperatures.

I just wish they would discover WHAT the problem is, so my husband can finally settle down and enjoy life, instead of worrying about the house crumbling down around him.

He worries enough for all of us.

In other news...

I have a date!

I mean... I have a release date for The Joining.

February 11, 2009.

Mark your calendars!

It's been in the works for a while. It's a fun little story, sci-fi, of course. Coming out at The Wild Rose Press.

In the meantime, you can visit my website to watch the trailer (it's the first trailer I ever made).

If that wasn't enough news, I spend most of the day yesterday at a workshop organized by our local RWA chapter, SARA. It was the first of our Build-A-Book workshops, and I had so much fun giving a talk on "plotting as pantser," or how do you keep your wits about you when all the plotting schemes seem to go awry? Or something like that.

And I'm still offering online workshops
, so check out my website: Otter Creations for more information. There's one coming in October for those who are brand new to the Internet: I'll help you get comfortable with all the terminology, figure out where to start with your web presence, and get you ready to start on the basics of HTML, which comes...

The November workshop!
It's all about image tags and links and colors... Just to give you a taste and get you started. Nothing scary. Nothing major.

Finally, when you're ready to put something up, you'll need to write up something quick to grab your visitors. That's when you'll want to try the December Blurb Workshop. It's short, it's intense, it's hands-on.

And yes, I'm still writing. I just have to finish something. I've had a problem with attention span lately...
