I'm going to be super busy the next few weeks and unable to post. So it'll be quiet here. In the meantime, John Scalzi kindly allowed me to blather on (at length) about how I came about the ideas that led me to writing Come Fall. You can find my essay here, as part of his ongoing The Big Idea columns.
I also posted a much shorter piece for Write Up Our Alley about book birthdays -- what they are and aren't.
Happy summer! See you in a few weeks.
