Dearest readers….yes, I’m still alive. Summer has been a blur of park outings, weekend road trips, and far too many sleepless nights.

Still not sleeping through the night, but I hope as school starts for Big Sister and we stop traveling so much, the regular routine will help him adjust to sleeping. PLEASE, lady-be, MAKE IT SO.

It was a sweltering 87 degrees here in Seattle yesterday. We tied with Phoenix for the hottest city. Very few of us have air conditioning, since it rarely gets that hot, but we have abundant cool forests and a few sparkling beaches from which we can dip our toes into the frigid Puget Sound. It’s the perfect weather for a cool drink and a hot book, and–lucky you!–today HEARTS OF SHADOW (Deadglass #2) releases into the wild. INTERVIEW! With me! At the Book Tart! Today! Book giveaway!

A month ago I gave birth to a beautiful, healthy baby boy! He is a tiny munchkin, but is growing fast. I haven’t been online much in the past month because we’ve been doing the desperate “sleep, baby, sleep!” routine. Tiny baby, giant lungs. It’s amazing he hasn’t woken up his big sister in the middle of the night yet. She is still enjoying being a big sister and loves to give the baby kisses. She calls him, “our baby.” It’s pretty cute.

Today is the anti-celebration of the 105th anniversary of Ballard’s forcible annexation to the City of Seattle. We mourn the loss of our great Scandinavian city to the insatiable hunger of those devious early Seattelittes, who rumor has it put a dead horse in Ballard’s drinking water supply to “convince” us that we needed their help. It might have been a bloodless coup, but we still mourn the loss of our independence. Please join me in donning black and raising a glass in memory of the Ballard that could have been… Our FREE BALLARD cheer is tongue-in-cheek, but it inspired… Read more »
