Thanks for indulging me. I'm just so excited, and of all my varied and wonderful communities, this one will understand the best. Also, I'd never been to an author event before and it was so much fun. Like, storytime for grownups. I'm going to have to go more of these, but not too many, or I won't have enough money to keep the lights on.
