Five Quick Minutes

Hi guys!

I have five quick minutes before I have to get back to work. There's so little time and so much to say. ARGH!

We got the actual ARCs in on Moon's Web. Got the new cover picture. Orders are up based on the new cover. I'm really happy with it.

One of the things I have to do this weekend is get out my thank you notes for everything that went on at the conference. Had such a wonderful time and met such great people. But BOY am I exhausted!

Touch of Evil is moving along swimmingly. Cathy is hoping to get the changes made by the weekend, then I'll review it and send before Monday. They're starting to gear up for publicity for it already, which is seriously cool since it doesn't come out until March! (Originally it was supposed to come out in January, but the schedule changed). That marketing is excited about it is a very good thing.

The folks (mostly reviewers, but the occasional gift recipient) who've seen Moon's Web in advance are all giving us great reviews and saying they like it even better than Hunter. This is great news! Woo hoo! We want people to be excited about the world and all of the people in it, and they seem to be.

Read a fun book from one of the Tor authors (coming out this September) called "Revenge Gifts." It's really a hoot! It's the story of a woman who runs a website where people can give gifts that are revenge oriented, but subtle. Like really elegant boxers that have metal mesh hidden in the seams so that they set off the metal detectors at airports; "allergy" pillows that are made of hand made lace stuffed with things like cat hair, etc. What a hoot! Buy it when it comes out if you like lighthearted fun with a little dark edge of black humor to it.

Well, time's up. Back to work I go. Keep in touch guys!
