Another Kind of Throwback Thursday

I grumped about Colorado’s throwback temperatures on my Facebook page—it’s noon and it’s finally cracked 62 degrees thanks to a brief break in the clouds—but upon dosing myself with the requisite amounts of black Arabica coffee and a chunk of 85% cacao, I’ve come to appreciate that at least my surroundings aren’t hot, dry, and in flames like they were last year, and the year before that. I was concerned this year would be the “threepeat” and that wildfires in Colorado Springs would become another thing we put up with, like snow in May.

Right now I’m concerned that I need the nootropic assistance of coffee and cacao beans to appreciate the obvious. Well, whatever it takes. I’m grateful for today. And that, so far, nothing seems to be on fire.

In other news, Severed Press threw their corrected galleys of Grace Among the Dead back to me last night. I sent this by way of reply...

...because this is over two weeks earlier than I expected. And I drank too much beer last night. Boy, did I time that particular bender wrong.

So, with all the nootropic assistance I can summon, it’s down to business. If I do this right, I’ll have this monsterpiece of a second installment of The Dead Silencer series in your hands by the end of next week. Maybe sooner, if I just get going....
