California and Chaos

I haven't had a chance to post anything here for a few weeks.

I got to go to see the Pacific ocean and walk on the beach in Newport. I also got to go the the Aquarium of th Pacific.  It was very awesome.

I learned a lot at this conference about things that I had never really considered.

Updates

I've spent the last few days updating sites and working on a new story that will be a companion to Suddenly.  I'm still riding on cloud nine that Suddenly is actually getting published.  My publisher, Itoh Press has been great and is working very hard to get my book out to you as soon as possible.  As of right now, it should be available August 15, 2012! I hope you will all grab a copy.
