What, no one likes sex anymore?


I can't figure out why my eros posts attracted so few comments. It's mystifying.

The Marilyn Brown Novel Award


I've decided to submit this year (why not?). You all should too.

Change of plans


So my dear friend and expert came over today to help me with my LaTeX problems and he was astounded at their number and magnitude and, although it pained him greatly to say it, he recommended I use Word to typeset the Fob Bible. The certain disadvantages brought by Word will remain, but I think we can overcome or minimize them.

What this means for everyone else, mostly, is that the proofreading job will change. Instead of checking for wonky punctuation, wonky pagination (for instance).

Fun fun fun!
