Hello Friends! As part of the grand digital reorganization, I'm simplifying the newsletter and slowly shifting it between platforms. 

While you can keep subscribing here, please also subscribe for $0 to the Table Of Contents at my drip platform, where I'll post this newsletter once a month. You'll get an email when it's posted, and it will function like a monthly net of things done and used and liked, which will be pretty cool, long term. (There's more content at Drip for various membership levels. If you have questions, shoot me a message.)

The crickets are sounding off outside and it's gearing up to be a hot first few days of September outside of Philadelphia. We're trying to stay cool, and since this month we've had to deal with a big wasps nest and a dead raccoon in our yard, inside really seems like the best place. BUT there's a comet overhead tonight  (21P/Giacobini-Zinner) and I'm hoping to catch a glimpse. 

LAAAATE BREAKING - meaning this newsletter. I meant to get it finished before I left for Atlanta, but now it is finished on my return. Why Atlanta? I was at Dragoncon (for the Eugie Foster Memorial Awards), and before that at Worldcon. Both were amazing, as was the 3-day writing retreat I snuck in there with several friends from a critique group that's been going for eight years now. (They are incredible.) Yes that's a lot of travel and yes there's more coming, as soon as I do some laundry and hang out with my family for a while. I posted a full list of fall where-to-find-mes last week, and I'll link them below also.

I mentioned a second secret project last time - It's just been announced! Down in the links, with all the other good stuff!

OK Ready? Let's do this. Here's the table of contents for the month of August:

Found (to be cool, useful, or just plain neat) -- tools & travel edition this month:
  • This avocado 3-in-1 tool - I make a LOT of guacamole (avocados, garlic, lime, sea salt, that's it, don't mess with greatness) and this is the best tool I've ever seen.
  • This water brush - if you've seen my journals, you know I use this a lot, and yes, it is just a brush filled with water. That makes you an artistic genius.
  • If you're near San Jose or San Francisco soon, head out to the Pigeon Point lighthouse. It's gorgeous, and the ongoing historic restoration is fascinating and the Fresnel lens on display is so cool. (Also you can stay on the grounds!)
  • The Georgia Aquarium has whale sharks and no one told me.

Heard (glorious sounds)
Seen (just a few, all online)
Written (what I wrote online, and where)
Where I'll be this fall: Kelly Writers House 9/5, Scintillation 10/5-10/7, University of Richmond and Fountain Books 10/9-10/11, World Fantasy 11/1-11/4.
