11:14 am - Let's say maybe you're thinking of buying a book.

“Wake up…”, The Dazzle of Day, Dicebox: Wander

Let's say maybe you're thinking of buying a book or three. The thought's crossed your mind. How better than directly from the people who made them?

On the one hand, City of Roses: drily romantic urban phantastick, acclaimed in the pages of the Guardian and Bookslut, yours as an ebook or paperback (or the old school chapbook zines);

On the other, Dicebox: genderfluid blue collar labor in space, lauded at io9 and just about everywhere else, in gorgeous soft- and hardcover form.

So go! Click a link or two; put down some money, if you're moved. (The cash, like the spice, must flow, after all.)

And thanks!

4:42 am - “streetlights tell lies”
Deliver us all and sundry: no. 17, "Deliverance," begins Monday. Go, then, remember where we left off (or pick up the first 11 chapters in a convenient single-serving size). —The endgame is beginning; Things are starting to Happen. (For some values of Thing, and Happen.)

8:28 pm - Obligatory buzz.
If you were the sort of person to pay attention to this sort of thing, you might have seen the mention last week of this year’s publication schedule for City of Roses and, noting it begins with no. 17, thought to yourself: but! No. 16! It’s only half complete! When will it finally begin to be finished? —Well: starting tomorrow; running through Friday. Catch up (or further up) as needed.

PS: books!

8:00 pm - “And the floors shall be full of wheat—”
Be glad then, ye children of Tara, for no. 16, “Plenty,” stands an excellent chance of filling your coffers on Monday. —Replenish your recollections of the previous 15 chapters to while away the time till then, or pick up the first 11 all in one go for the reading platform of your choice.

No. 16: Plenty

7:17 am - “Bless you, Jack.”
In the airy realm of theory, No. 15, "Frail," begins Monday. You could check up where we left off, or you could go enjoy an interview with me. Or both; go on. No one will judge.

9:14 am - “You ain’t even en mi clasa.”
The Wheel of the Year turns and turns and up comes Monday, June 20th, when no. 14, “Mayhem,” kicks off. Remember where you parked, and keep your eyes peeled for holly—

12:36 pm - Then and back again.
(Apologies if you've already seen the link elsewhere but I got to read a copy of Welcome to Bordertown a month before everybody else and well.)

6:09 am - “All we can do to comfort one another – ”
Why yes, yes indeed, it is that time again: tomorrow morning no. 13, “Changel,” begins. Get caught up as you might require.

Also and as a reminder: we’re at the Stumptown Comics Fest again today, so if you’re in town come by, say hi. Look for the table full of roses.

6:29 am - “And there’s no wanting worth the tears…”
Hello and good morning and all that sort of thing. A quick note, a reminder, a tug on your coat: No. 12, “Innocency,” begins Monday. —In case you need to recall where we left off?

8:13 am - Is this thing on?
Stepping in momentarily to point out that issue no. 8 of City of Roses, "Beauty," premieres online in exactly one week.

Which is just enough time to go get caught up.

6:01 am - The beauty in the beast; the sunset in the east.
A brief announcement in service of no interests but my own, perhaps: City of Roses No. 7, “Gin-soaked,” has begun. It’ll appear Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from now until the 14th.

9:07 pm - This week on—
My LiveJournal Sitcom
kiplet at the library (ABC, 1:00): kiplet (Kurt Russell) unknowingly gets high before a meeting with ellen_kushner (Sarah Polley). That same day, sararyan (Jack Benny) gets mad at quirkybird (Judy Garland) and decides to join the Peace Corps. Afterwards, vinnie_tesla (Jayne Mansfield) trades Klondike bars with coffeeem (Ed Asner). The week after, pineappleinc (Peter MacNicol) makes lots of money playing guitar on the street and makes erikamoen (Lon Chaney) jealous. Upstairs, b_zedan (George Takei) misinterprets an email from alg (Jeff Goldblum) and tries to get into a homeless shelter for free. Insanity ensues.

8:21 am - A momentary outburst of cross-platform self-promotion.

Just wanted to point out that if you were a member of the City of Roses Facebook group, it’d be easier to find certain special surprises and treats, is all.

Since I can't update Long story; short pier (what with the hospital thinking it’s PORNOGRAPHY and all), here’s what our Twitter studio looks like:

(Also, Jenn’s mom.)

Oh, hey, did I mention we're having a baby? Like, right now? —I mean, Jenn is, anyway. I'm helping as I can. (Twitters for those who tweet: herself; myself.)

I don't normally do these, but this is the shit that really gets my goat.
Copy this sentence into your LiveJournal if you're in a non-same-sex marriage, and you don't want it "protected" by the bigots who think that gay marriage hurts it somehow.
