My espresso machine seems to have stopped properly, uh, espressing. Suck. I'm going to have to see if I actually bothered to do the warranty registration.
I've got a good "cover" illustration for Claw & Quill, and Lynx is working on a dynamite piece for one story. Another artist has had her schedule derailed by hurricanes (I didn't realize she lived around Orlando!) and I didn't think to get a new artist in time. Go me. And, another artist's gotten back to me with art for a third story--and it's art that I don't really like. I was taking something of a chance on his kind of odd art style--sort of a digital collage look--and it didn't pan out. I may run a stock photo with that story. I may run a stock photo for both. Yay for stock photos. Hopefully I will learn, through pitfalls like these, the "art wrangler" side of art direction.
Tomorrow I either do everything I've been putting off, or I drive to Santa Cruz or something. Not that these things are really exclusive if I organize things portably. Yay for laptops with good battery life.
