New Foreigner Book!


a few hardcovers and pbs available from Closed Circle, signed. Latest: Moonlover and the Fountain of Blood, Jane Fancher short story. Chernevog, part 2 of the Rusalka trilogy co-written by CJ and Jane; and Orion's Children, a tetralogy from Lynn.

Snow came—though thinly; another slushy bit today. Our furnace has been out for a few days…

This house is well-insulated, a bennie of living in the north. It takes more time than that to drop us below 64 degrees in the house, and since we keep the winter day temperatures around 68 F, or 20 C, we’re pretty ok. Even during the 8 day blackout with no furnace action (the ignition […]

They say snow is coming.

Just went to the store… Pot roast, potatoes, carrots, celery, etc. It’s supposed to be just a light dusting, but more later in the week.

We are home and snug and preparing to decorate for Christmas, a thing Jane dearly loves to do. I agreed to clean up in advance while she picks up the […]

Back from Philcon…

We made it. We landed in Denver as winter storm Argos got fired up, had change planes on a 10 minute most-of-a-mile hike, de-ice the new one, got on toward Philadelphia, took off at 2, landed at midnight, no food since noon. Met by a Philcon friend, taken to Wawa to get really very good […]

Sigh. A basement full of books…

About 4x the number that will fit on shelves in our library area of same.

This is a job we’ve postponed since moving here. We’ve tried about everything to figure how to sort this mess, but I think Jane is onto it. Three quarters of them have to go (to a library charity) and unfortunately […]

Jane has been posting some very pretty pictures…

She has.

Her link is in the left sidebar.

New lower back thingie, besides the Gazelle glider…

This one is also helping both Jane and me…a home traction for lower back that ought to be safe if used as directed. It’s from Teeter, the people that make the inverse table hanging thingie, so I figured it had to be other than a crackpot gadget. It’s far less expensive, about 50.00; you have […]

the recipe worked.

Here’s the recipe: coconut flour naan. The dough worked. I was able to create naan flats, pick them up and have them hang together, plus turn and lift with a spatula. And it tastes good. Oily, yes. We are now on the see-if-it-sticks-to-your-ribs test, meaning are you going to be hungry an hour after eating […]

Well, the piper must be paid, and diet is at hand…before the holidays hit.

And before Philcon. I’ve found a recipe for coconut flour naan, and either it’s going to be bloody awful, or it’s going to help. If there’s one sin we both love it’s bread—and this recipe actually looks like it MIGHT be good. If it’s good, I may be able to convert it to other recipes. […]

Happy birthday to Jane!

Shu’s trying to eat her bouquet of roses. Seishi wants to eat the ribbon.

What can I say? The cats are involved.

Books associated with Alliance Rising

We’re going to be putting out Finity’s End in Closed Circle. And others. I’m going to talk with Betsy about putting out Merchanter’s Luck in e- book, too.

There is already a book planned to follow Alliance Rising. It happened when we realized we have story left over. But it doesn’t mean I’m not writing […]
