Pick a peck o pumpkins?

how about a ghostly pumpkin? Don't know what it looks like on the inside, nor anything about the flavor:

October being in force, our annual reading of A Night in The Lonesome October continues. if anyone knows a source for a copy of the audio of Roger reading this... I'd love to know about it.

Yes, Calamity's Child is still on 99 cent special as an ebook at our major ebook outlets -- makes for great Halloween reading, what with...oh, maybe I better not give it away... Smashwords: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/68185 , Barnes and Noble: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/calamitys-child-sharon-lee/1007784167 Amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/Calamitys-Child-ebook/dp/B004XMOTPI/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1318249125&sr=1-1

In support of the arts and musical enjoyment we've been watching Frenchy and The Punk move toward their Kickstarter goal to produce not one, but TWO new CDs. I'm for more music from these hardworking, hard singing folks, who have been featured at several SFnal and steampunk venues including TGNESE and Dragon*Con ... if you get a chance to see them live, you ought to. Really. If you're new to them. support the project at a level that gets you a CD...we did! http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1992732366/frenchy-and-the-punks-big-music-project-2-full-len

Ummm .. also, this year would be a REALLY GOOD YEAR to introduce those holdouts among your friends to reading among our books, right? In fact, Analog Magazine suggests the same (in the person of Analog's excellent long-time book reviewer Don Sakers, writing in The Reference Library) -- Right, just say "Analog suggests Ghost Ship by Sharon Lee & Steve Miller as great Christmas gift for SF newbies" -- see page 104 in December issue. You may want to talk to your local indy bookstore about getting yours, or maybe see if Don Blyly still has a signed one left out there in Minneapolis...

Another also: Dear Barnes and Noble, Augusta Maine -- How in The Heck are you going to sell our books if they aren't on your shelf? Hoping someone will special order a book fresh out in August won't do it these days -- oh look at the warehouse, they have books, and we can ship it to you ... um, you know, that book in hand sells new people, it does. Why the nice ladies out at Mr. Paperback in Farmington had copies for us to sign, and were pleased to tell us how fast our books move for them. Listen up!

Oh, looks like a pretty day, and time for a walk, then, Dragon Ship. Plan is 2000 fresh words today.
