Movement on The Dinosaur Lords front!
No, the Official Editorial Rewrite Notes still haven’t gotten here. The good news is that there is reason to believe they are about to.
The bad news was I also got what I thought was reason to suspect the editor was going to ask me to make fundamental changes to the [...]
So, since my most recently recounted (and most triumphant!) adventure, I had a very busy week. Too busy to take time off and, you know, blog.
But first: your too-long deferred fix of Emma Dog. Because we all know she’s really the draw here to the blog. I just need to face facts.
