I am currently in between jobs. My last day at Konica was April 9th, which meant I was there to help with the new system launch. My new job  starts April 22nd. I have several very different goals for this period. Some are practical (medical appointments) and some are just plain fun (we spent this past weekend in Provincetown). And some are both at once (writing novel proposals).

Speaking of writing, galleys for ALLEGIANCE are scheduled to show up this week. This is the last step for me before all those words I wrote turn into a real book. I'm pretty excited. Also very nervous. This book is the end of the trilogy, and readers who have followed Ilse and Raul through Passion Play and Queen's Hunt deserve a satisfying payoff. I tried to deliver that. I hope I succeeded. Come October, I get to find out.

Enjoy this space between. I hope you get lots of proposals done, and lots of fun.

Thanks! Cape Cod was perfectly splendid, in spite of the rain on Friday. Really, really good food, fun shops, and Saturday we spent wandering up and down the seashore in the sunshine.

How did the new system's launch go?

Better than the first time, but still stressful. The datafeed worked. The DNS name and IP swap worked. But there were systems we could not adequately test until Sunday afternoon because we did not have the full database and servers swapped before then. However, by Tuesday afternoon things were operating pretty much as required.

Glad to hear it worked.
