Woo!

Got two doses of awesome news when the wonderful Anna Schwind accepted my story, "Sun's East, Moon's West" for Podcastle--the first is the obvious one (sale). The second is--Anna's an editor! At Podcastle! Anna was pretty much the first person I didn't know personally to write me about a story of mine and say she liked it.

That's so cool!

Then, I got another dose of news, this by way of tinaconnolly, who has been doing a much better job tracking the progress of the cute robot book, Unplugged [Amazon] than I have. First, there was the starred review in Publisher's Weekly, which I may have mentioned before (and Tina herself is name-checked)--but then there's the Booklist review, which I haven't seen all of, yet, but in which I am name-checked as having written a "genuinely delightful tale." (They're talking about "The Girl-Prince," which sartorias first bought like a year and a half ago for Coyote Wild.) We love being geuninely delightful!

And even more awesome, I got email from Neil Clarke saying that my copies of the Cute Robot Book should be here on Wednesday, which is really cool, except for that my ego-shelf really doesn't have room. (Woe.) But maybe I should stop using a magazine file and get a real shelf. Hm? Or keep the magazine file for magazines, and get a shelf for books. Something like that. (WOOOE!)

And, and, have I mentioned that sarah_prineas is totally the best? Because she is. If it wouldn't get reverted, I would go put it in her Wikipedia page right now. (It would get reverted because they would be all, "You have to cite your sources," and I would have to confess, "It's primary source material," and hang my head in shame.)

I think that's it for now. (Considers.) Yep.
