Spending my lunch hour playing phone tag with vet about my sick kitty Gray.  Since last week we've been to ER vet and regular vet four times, more than $1200 in bills, and he's in kitty hospital now. All the other rescue cats miss him and we want him home & healthy.  If you love animals and can spare some change, any help to pay his vets and for medicine would be greatly appreciated.

New cover for my transgender collection - so lovely, and there's a new Diana Comet story coming soon.

My biggest paid download in April on SW and Amazon was a Fisher Key short story about two teens, summer love, a family secret. Happy to see that getting traction. Fisher Key is based on Marathon FL, and the bookstore in the story is based on Chamblin's Book Mine here in Jacksonville. Yay Florida and GLBTQ fic for teens.

A nice shoutout for my transgender Guam story along with stories by Sunny Moraine and Lavie Tidhar. Thanks to Locus and Gardner Dozois.

Enjoyed this both as a writer and reader. I'm glad he notes the midlist as a place where interesting things happen & risks are taken.

Year in review:  5 short stories in print and 1 reprint in Year's Best. 3 novels published. Posted some shameless indulgence in fanfiction, too. Visited NASA Houston (thanks Amy, Paul & NASA!) and went to two writing retreats (thanks Charlie and Merrie!). 3 stories already sold for next year. Seven thousand essays graded.  And so it goes, circles and circles and circles.

Wish I could go to this event but it's the second week of the fall semester. 50 people get to watch the launch of a Minotaur rocket and touch a moon rock and talk to the scientists and other fine things. It's Sept 5-6 at Wallops Flight Facility in Chincoteague VA.

Registration closes today at 5 pm. All you do is fill out a form and they draw names at random. They don't spam you. You do have to be on twitter because they'll need your twitter name.

Tor did the same thing to me, so I'm not surprised at this.
