Thanks to my lovely generous editor, I can has the new The Magic Thief book by sarah_prineas! And also maprilynne's Wings!
My son will be much offended if I read the former without him, so I must contain my mad curiosity for now. But I have already started on the latter, ignoring the pile of library books looking reproachfully at me from the corner.
Also, I have FINALLY conquered the Dread Pirate Roberts First Scene of Chapter Eight in Touching Indigo, which has been causing me woe for nearly seven months now. Onward and upward!
