The Kickstarter over-performed just enough to give me some margin and still be able to have books for the con circuit this fall. God willing and the creek don’t rise, at least. It must be nice to have liquidity – mind you, compared to most self-published authors I apparently do. At least until 2022. I dunno, maybe I’ll have a good enough backlist by then.
Speaking off… feel free to share the love, hey?
I’m fairly certain that every single member of my family is currently down with a different disease or injury. My wife’s stuffed up, my elder kid’s coughing, my younger kid’s grouchy and off his feed, and I apparently have tendinitis. Heck, even the cat’s got something weird going on with his kidney function.
Hence the quarantine sign on the door (no, I didn’t put a quarantine sign on the door). Personally, I’d like to lie about and be wretched, but somebody’s got to get the groceries and whatnot, and apparently I can deal with my condition well enough with a variety of pills. Whine whine whine, moan moan, complain complain, whine…
(Via Hot Air Headlines) House Democrats are not handling their recent spanking well. They’re especially distraught over losing control of the House in such an insanely short time:
“We only had it for four years,” one senior Democrat lamented. “It took so long to get it back, and now it is all gone.”
Well, that’s what happens when politicians run as moderates and rule as liberals, Sparky. This is also what happens when a political party lets itself be run by its liberal fringe on the legislative level and by a feckless dilettante on the executive. And, finally, this is what happens when politicians ignore necessary business in order to pass ideological wish lists – then inform the American people that it’s all for their own good, so don’t worry their pretty little heads over it. And what are the consequences of all of that? The political party guilty of such behaviors gets promptly backhanded by the American people. As we saw.
Learn or don’t learn, as you blessed well please – but do not whine about it. It’s unbecoming.

Anyway (and via Hot Air Headlines): Victor Davis Hanson was correct, but a bit redundant, in his response to this NYT piece about all those poor dears being burned out by working for the Obama administration in these troubling times. My response is a bit briefer:
If you hate it so much, quit.
Yeah, yeah, I know: in this economy?
