I sent out the proof copy corrections on Tuesday the 28th, and am now waiting anxiously for the start of my vacation. I’m taking a month off to work on Zook Country’s sequel, Rogue Country. I hope that there’s somebody out there who wants to read Zook Country, and that this will lead to somebody wanting to read the sequel.
We lived through what would probably be called a hurricane if we lived in an area that had hurricanes. Hills near us reported winds in excess of 100 MPH. We had no electricity, running water, or telephone for about a day and a half starting Tuesday evening, and ending on Thursday morning. The upside is that I’ve found a new small engine repair guy, so my chainsaw is running very well. The downside is it’s been raining up here in the hills for three nights, and I don’t really want to wander around in wet underbrush cutting down alder and cutting up fallen trees. I’m thinking the neighbors feel much the same, so maybe we’ll get together and have a pity party next week. The office I work at in Anchorage closed on Wednesday, because we had no phone or systems servers. I hope that there’s somebody out there who wants to read Zook Country, and that this will lead to somebody wanting to read the sequel. I may be repeating myself.
There is other news, but I think going to sleep might be the best plan for me. Until later, then.
