It's that time of year again

It's summer.  Blue skies, warm weather, feeling like you're in a FUCKING OVEN ALL THE TIME.  Yes, I hate summer.  A lot. 

I moved to Oregon because I was promised 280 days of clouds a year.  280 days.  I feel totally ripped off.  Another major thing I hate about the summer is my birthday.  Another year older, another year closer to spinsterhood and owning six hundred cats.  Not that there's anything wrong with that.  I'm actually looking forward to it in a way.  I will be an awesome old lady.

See?  They love me already!  I only need 598 more of them to be complete!
Getting to the point, to celebrate my birthday Les Recidivists will be free this weekend (July 26-27) so please pick up a copy at Amazon.com if you haven't already.  I'll just be over here eating massive amounts of ice cream cake.

Ask the Author

So a couple of months ago Goodreads piloted this program called Ask the Author, where Goodreads members were given the opportunity to (you guessed it) ask authors questions about their latest books, writing in general, etc.  It's now been opened up to other authors as well, and it's a great opportunity for authors as well as for readers if you're into that sort of thing.  Your favorite authors may be answering questions now, and I personally love hearing from readers, so if anyone has questions that's a good place to do it.  And as always, I respond to comments on my blog as well.
