Sadness and An Opportunity for You

My husband’s niece lost her husband this morning to a sudden, very severe infection that started last week.   This isn’t a part of the family I know well, but I’m very sorry for her and their two children.

Between Ash Wednesday meditations and this,  no writing has been added to the new book, though I dealt with a lot of writing business today.    One of the bits of writing business was getting set up for an online chat, that will take place with John Hemry ( author of the Lost Fleet books as Jack Campbell and JAG in Space books as John Hemry) and fans, on March 16 between 4 and 5 pm Eastern Time.   Our editor suggested that we talk about researching for writing, and we’ve exchanged ideas and questions today.

The fan portal for the chat will be through, and if you wander past there, you’ll see that online chats are fairly common.   John and I have known each other for years–it should be a lot of fun for all.   I think it’s great that modern communications give us the chance to do things like this.  I hope you’ll come see what happens.   (And yes, there will be reminders…)
