So it turns out that the Really Loud peal of thunder that woke us up at 6:11 this morning. . .was an earthquake. Epicenter in Sidney, 2.6 on the scale. Sidney's about 15 miles from the Cat Farm and Confusion Factory.
For the record, I am against this increased trending in Maine earthquakes.
Have I mentioned here that the ebook edition of A Liaden Universe® Constellation, Volume One is now available in all formats known to man from Baen and also from the Amazon Kindle store? Well, it is. The paper book will be on the shelves of a bookstore near you on July 2.
Yesterday was another boring day from an observer's point of view. I wrote 3,700 words of climax for Carousel Seas. Today, with luck and a tailwind, I'll take care of the wrap-up, and then it will be done! Done! DOOOONE!
Ahem. Except for the final pass-through and patch, of course. But that's next week and in-between, there's a weekend.
Mike the Electrician and his helper, Scott, did enliven the early part of yesterday by arriving to install the two new ceiling fans. FWIW, they pronounce the Harbor Breeze Hive Series flush-mount ceiling fan Best! Ceiling! Fan! Ever! We're pretty happy with them, too.
. . .and I think that's all I have to report.
Who has exciting plans for the weekend?

And I'd never seen her afraid.
