In June, I’ll be celebrating (that’s what my wife calls it) our sixteenth anniversary. I don’t know how she put up with me for all those years. Maybe she’s a time-traveler who has come from the future where I’m bigger than J.K. Rowling and Steven King combined, and has decided to set herself up as my first wife… Hey, I write sci-fi, ya know?
The hardcover of Champion Standing should be out the end of this month. It’ll be $24.99, and the dust jacket I showed you all before looks awesome. I hope Miss Alister gets her chapter of the Beginnings Project up this month. I’m eager to write chapter twelve, whatever it may be. As long as Miss A gets hers done, I’ll do mine the following week. Joel Cotejar will be working on the art for Nala’s Story in the next few weeks. I have an idea on what I want, but Joel seems to know what I need.
I’m going to try to take Alyssa to the local gaming store on Fridays in June so she can practice her mad skillz against someone other than her father. Anthony’s fifteenth birthday is the same as my anniversary, He usually gets to pick what we do for breakfast, and I think the plan is to go to see the new Jurassic movie. The anniversary usually gets overshadowed by his birthday, but Erika wants to go to a local Steak House and be a couple if only for an hour or so.
At the station, June is the month that we prepare for the monsoon season, so I’ll be hella busy. My buddy at GameStop wants me to work in his store, but I haven’t worked there in about nine months, so I’ll need to be retrained or something. The pool at the community center has already opened, so I expect I’ll take the kids there the Saturdays in June. I can’t think of anything else June-specific, so I’ll just end this post with a random June quote:
“There are moments, above all on June evenings, when the lakes that hold our moons are sucked into the earth, and nothing is left but wine and the touch of a hand.”
