We had no real plans for the day — Memorial Day doesn’t always go well — but our friends e-mailed to say they had a new game, and did we want to come play? Of course we did!

The game is called Bang!, and it’s a spaghetti Western card game. We played twice, and I was an outlaw both times. In the second game, I was the last person the sheriff took out. Lots of fun.

Other than that, I made a pass at cover copy for Siren Circle, and I wrote 166 words.

Also took a picture of the current physical TBR pile, many of which I got at the Nebula Conference. (Not pictured is Todd Lockwood’s Summer Dragon, which the boy is reading.)

In Ursula Vernon’s Hamster Princess books, Harriet Hamsterbone loves to go cliff-diving. In the first book, she is invincible, so why not jump off cliffs when you know you will always survive?

For the rest of us, it’s a riskier proposition. In this case, the cliff I’m facing is the “30-day cliff” for publication at Amazon, as today is the 30th day since I published Ghost Garages, and Siren Circle is not yet ready. I should survive this cliff, although my ratings will take a hit. And then we’ll see how book 3 goes. (I’m beginning to suspect 6 weeks rather than 4 may be a good estimate for me.)
