  5. The Gathering Edge -- y'all remember The Gathering Edge, right? -- currently has 143 reader reviews on Amazon, which is awesome, and we thank you for your time!  You know what would be Even More awesome, though?  If Edge could get as many reviews as Alliance of Equals -- 266.  Can we do it?

Here end your Monday morning adverts.  Everybody have a great week.

Unrestful sleep full of the horrors of free hotel breakfasts (is it me or is there less and less food at free hotel breakfasts?  Some of them have a big crockpot of oatmeal, and that's fine; I can get by on a bowl of oatmeal.  But others. . .Gah.  Picky eater is picky.), interleaved with a roll call of absent friends.  Not sure who elected these the topics of the evening, but the result is a head full of sticky thoughts this morning.

Well.  There's more coffee where this cup came from.

So, today's to-do list:

  1.  Drink more coffee
  2. Edit last night's pages
  3. Edit Due Diligence
  4. Write teaser copy for Due Diligence
  5. Write more words for Fifth of Five
  6. Consider questions to put to the panelists of Writing the Series (How do you plan out a multi-books series?  Well, there's one question right there -- free from Programming.).
  7. Print out Characterization Rant and practice on Belle (don't laugh; Belle's a tough audience.  For one thing, she doesn't care about writing or characters.).  Belle's busy right now; she'll get back to me when her schedule's clear.
  8. Enpurple hair
  9. Meditate

. . .that's enough.

Today's blog post brought to you by War, "Low Rider."  Here's your link.

Oh.  Yesterday, I did build a cover for Due Diligence.  Have a look:



"That's an extra-size lot of respectability you're wanting," he pointed out.  "I did say we're a House full of scoundrels."

"You did.  But I've no objection to scoundrels, being one myself."

AsyouknowBob, Sharon Lee and Steve Miller will be Writer Guests of Honor at Confluence, in Pittsburgh, August 4, 5, 6.

Here's your link to Steve's schedule.

Here's your link to Sharon's schedule.

Here's your link to the Master Schedule.

Here's your link to the con's front page.

You will notice that there is a Friends of Liad breakfast scheduled for Sunday at 8:30 am in the hotel restaurant.  Despite being scheduled, this is not a convention-funded event.  It is what we called in my youth Dutch Treat, with every attendee (including Steve and me) ordering, and paying for, their own breakfast and tip.  Steve and I try to host a FoL breakfast at every con we go to, whether we GoHs, panelists, or convention members.  The Friends of Liad breakfast is. . .Well, it's most like an extended family getting together to share a meal, and news, and memories.

The Teddy Bear Tea, now, scheduled for 4:30 pm on Saturday, is a convention event.  We try to have a Teddy Bear Tea at every convention where we're GoHs, ever since it came to our attention that many fans (including Steve and me) travel with plush friends.  Sadly, though, the plushies often don't get out to the larger convention.  So, the Teddy Bear Tea is event for the plushies to come out and socialize, while their human friends chat, and sip tea, and perhaps share the histories of their plushies.  The Teddy Bear Tea is open to all plushies and their friends.

Can we get a show of hands?  Who's coming to Confluence?
