Thankfully, yesterday was neither as long nor as grueling as I expected. Got home before 9:30. And, as an end of day pick-me-up, I received some amazing news.
Got it at work and just barely managed not to whoop out loud, but it was a close thing. Did babble it to my co-editors—after calling Matthew, of course; otherwise I would've gone 'splody-boom at my desk. Unfortunately, I'm not at liberty to squee publicly about until next month.
So as not to be accused of being (too much of) a tease, here's news I can tell: PodCastle asked me to narrate "Honored Guest" by Ellen Kushner for a forthcoming podcast. I read and adored this story when it was originally published in the Coyote Road anthology, so of course I said I'd be delighted to.
