Well, my dear Gentle Reader, I am off to foreign climes. I'll be
traveling from May 15 ~ June 7 in France. The first half will be work,
and the second half vacation. I'll be checking in online, periodically,
but mostly unable to respond to anything until I get back.
If you would like to see me while I am there, I will be in St. Malo for Etonnants Voyageurs Festival
May 18 ~ 20, and then in Epinal for Imaginales Festival
May 23 ~ 25.
I'm not at panels or eating, I can probably be found at the
Calmann/Orbit booth signing and chatting. I'd love love love to see you!Etonnants Voyageurs Festival in St. Malo

Book News:Quote of the Day:
hands are perfumed with her delicious limbs, and I cannot wash off the
scent. And every moment the thought comes across me of those mysterious
recesses of beauty where my hands have been wandering.”
