I’ve got a month until The Orphanmaster debuts… thus a lot of time on my hands. Yes, I have a few events for Love, Fiercely. But for the most part this is a waiting game, watching my tour dance card fill up and crossing my fingers that readers will like the book.
Hence the pyramidal pile of topsoil lying beside the driveway in a carved out section of marsh. Waiting to be raked level, watered, planted with tomatoes, beans, cukes. A vegetable garden. Just the time filler. Working my muscles, I will forget the workings of my mind.
