In these unprecedented times
I’m tired of getting emails that include that phrase, too.
This newsletter was supposed to go out yesterday, but I stalled out all weekend about what to write. I don’t really have anything new to add to the global discourse about the crazy world we’ve all found ourselves thrust into. In my personal corner of the world, I’d already been working from home 3 or 4 days a week, so switching to full-time telework wasn’t much of a lifestyle change for me. I am limiting my time outside the house to a grocery store run once a week — otherwise, I take walks around my neighborhood. But the spouse is considering essential in his full-time military position, so he’s working as regular. I basically figure he’s getting exposed every day, and all I can do is limit how much I expose other people.
I wish I could say that I was being super-productive in my “other” job, considering how much more time I’m spending at home. Let’s just say I picked a great time to reactivate my World of Warcraft account, because it’s hard to be stressed when tooling around Azeroth while watching comedy specials on Netflix.
Event Cancellations = Books For Sale
At this point, every convention/event I’d planned to attend through this summer has been cancelled. Rightfully so! This means I have books in need of good homes. Because I am now saving money on hotels and other travel costs, I will cover the cost of shipping anywhere in the United States. Now is a great time to escape into another world and call Limani home instead.
Contact me via social media or email me and we’ll work out the details.
- See above RE: Steel Justice progress.
- See above RE: lack of convention report for Cleveland Concoction.
- I managed one website update! The Daemons of Limani page has been updated for the character of Archer Sophin, because it’s hard to feel upset when scouring the internet for the perfect picture of an otter.
- I really would like to make revisions on Steel Justice. But as a great meme I saw the other day reminded me, it’s okay not to be okay during a pandemic.
- My trip to Salt Lake City this month for the day job was also cancelled, but let’s see how many books I can read at home to make up for it.
- Website updates: Syri and Liam are demanding that I show off their lovely visages on the Fan Cast page, and it’s not wise to disappoint elves.
- And what the hell: Let’s see if I can hit max level on a second character in WoW. My hunter main needs some company, and I have a warlock, mage, and cat druid over level 70 already.
