Hi! Thanks +Chris Andrews for your kind invitation! I'm looking forward to chatting and learning. I'm Barbara Friend Ish, and I can stop writing anytime I want to.

Well, actually, that's a lie. So far I've published one epic fantasy, The Shadow of the Sun, as an author--and a whole bunch more as publisher/editor-in-chief of Mercury Retrograde Press. Looking forward to meeting everyone!

Hi! Happy to have found you here. I'm a SF/F writer, editor, publisher and lifelong student. Current projects include Mercury Retrograde Press, an artisanal publisher of Fantasy, Science Fiction, Interstitial, and the Weird--and my own series of novels, of which the first is The Shadow of the Sun. Presently wrestling the second novel in the series, The Heart of Darkness. Looking forward to hanging out and learning!

Grooving on the utter coolness of +Alan Thompson +Elizabeth Campbell and the +Mercury Retrograde Press community: Yesterday Alan very kindly drew my notice to an error in the Kindle version of GUARDIANS OF THE DESERT by +Leona Wisoker--and by the time I got back to my desk today, Eliz had it FIXED. The corrected version will go up on Amazon and the Mercury Retrograde site this afternoon. Email me if you need a replacement!

Goodreads, LibraryThing, or Shelfari? Which, and why?

Whoa. Fell down the rabbit hole there. "3 minute news updates" on planetary and astronomic activity. I don't usually think about the planet as active in its own right.

Still kicking the tires on the G+ agent. Sorry for all the noise, peeps. Looks as if you must specifically tag +Rob McGee, not rely on the agent to pick it up via a public post, in order for it to work.

Which, yeah, is what the doc said, but I didn't understand what they meant by that until about a minute ago.

So this is the droid you've been looking for, +Anthony Thomas +Ben Chase. As Ant already observed, it doesn't seem to work at all on setup...but then, suddenly, it starts working exactly as advertised later. I have no explanation for the delay.
