Remember that grumpy Amazon review I groused about a few weeks ago? The one in which the reviewer consistently misspelled the name of a major character?

Someone posted in the review comments that they had been on the fence about buying Endgame, but the review convinced them to take the plunge. Seems that said review, which was pretty spoilerific, indicated that the story had veered in a direction the commenter had wanted it to go, but had been afraid it wouldn't.

Guess I should just leave them alone to do their little thing. Reviews.

Urban fantasy author Jackie Kessler puts a unique spin on the author-author interview--she has the protagonist of her Hell on Earth series, former succubus/current stripper Jezebel, interview the authors' protagonists instead.

Herein forthwith etc etc

A couple of reader reviews so far, this one from [livejournal.com profile] chris_gerrib and Jeri.

Both remarkably spoiler-free...which is more than I can say for the Klausner review.

[livejournal.com profile] chris_gerrib was one of the ten readers who snagged an advance copy of ENDGAME from Eos for review purposes, and his review is here. He seems to have liked it. Could be spoilery, depending, so be warned.

My editor emailed me to let me know that I received some good coverage in the October issue of Romantic Times, which features sf/f authors. Very happy to hear it. Thanks to Jack Womack, Eos' dandy publicity guy.

I have a book coming out next month. Life having been what it was, I haven't been able to say that for quite some time.

The weather is gorgeous, 60s and windy and sunny. A few of the sugar maples are starting to turn. I've been hearing Canadas fly over the past few mornings. It's getting to be about that time.

King is still shedding like a shedding thing. I got out the shedding rake and gave him another good brushing tonight, since hair that is removed outside is hair that will not remove itself inside.

One funny thing about King is that he doesn't seem to like it when I remove his collar. When I do, he stands even closer than he usually does, and when I hold it out, he puts his head right in it. I blame his fear of being abandoned in a parking lot, which I told him repeatedly would never be an issue if he would stop chewing on the cedar chest and eating the straps of my clogs. This reasoning, however, doesn't seem to make a dent. No adding two and two for this dog. Math is not a talent.

I tried to embed the code in my LJ profile, but it didn't work. Maybe I'll try again, seeing as it's working here.

I think this is very neat.

I have a cold. It's not a bad cold, but it's there. Scratchy/sore throat. Some sneezing. Nose running a bit. Just worn down enough so that run of the mill stuff requires a little effort. Throat's at the grabby stage, where the tickle's enough to drive you crazy, which usually means we're on the downside. Here's hoping I'm ok by Monday. Here's hoping I'm ok sooner than that, because every time I cough, King has to rush over and find out why I made that sound. A muffled cough must mean something else in Dog because every time he hears it, it's as though it's the first time. It gets his attention.

ENDGAME galleys arrived a couple of days ago. They are indeed quite spiff. Page proofs have been gone over and pages with errors shipped off to Eos. (EDIT: many thanks to the proofreader. these pages were in much better shape. Minor slips, including one sentence fragment that slipped under everyone's radar for months, mine included)

That means I'm well and truly done with this one. I can work on other things with a clear head. Set up the office wireless. Clean the office. Clean the linen closet. Make a big pot o' veggie chili.

I made scones yesterday. Summer Berry Scones, the recipe courtesy of the Dannon Vanilla Yogurt container.
