catching up...

Well, the good news is that NIGHT'S TOUCH is doing well. The bad news is that my hard drive crashed. That really bummed me out, as you can imagine, and it was even worse when Best Buy's Geek Squad told me they didn't have a hard drive for my pute and it was going to take them THREE WEEKS to fix it. These guys are doing things the hard way (you'll pardon the expression). Instead of having a new hard drive sent to the store (which, it seems to me would have been a lot faster), they are sending my computer out to who-knows-where to have a hard drive installed.

Well, I couldn't go three weeks without a computer, so I went to Staples and bought a new one. When I asked the guy what the procedure was if my hard drive crashed, he said if it couldn't be fixed, they'd just give me a new computer. I think I might be buying all my new computers from Staples.

I heard that The Dresden Files, one of my favorite new shows, is being canceled. Why is it that all the shows I love bite the dust? They killed Surface and Invastion and the Night Stalker, and now The Dresden Files. It just ain't fair.

My editor sent me a cover proof for my upcoming book, DEAD PERFECT. I love it.

It will be out next February, followed in October by my sequel to NIGHT'S TOUCH.

Hope you're having a wonderful summer.
