So now that I am out of the first trimester woods and thankfully creeping past what seemed like endless morning sickness, I can share the happy news that I am working on a different kind of creative project, aka the Hypothetical Child (which is now Theoretical Child) that Charles and I have been contemplating for the last few years. She is due in early December. \:D/
I do have to say that so far, I would much rather be a dragon and get to lay a nice portable egg. Forget the flying cars and the hyperdrive, where are our uterine replicators? Seriously, if we get to the future and we really are still giving birth naturally as per the appalling Star Wars episode III and Star Trek reboot, I am going to Have Words with the management.
In other happy news, I am actually going to be able to make this tour (I was a bit worried a couple of weeks ago when I was still horizontal on the couch 90% of the day but thankfully I seem to at last be getting the happy second trimester all these books promised me) and now have my schedule almost all lined up at this point:

Sorry for not making it to more places -- I have to conserve energy, among other things to get cracking away on Book 7 (working title: Crucible of Gold), which is currently due about the same time as Theoretical Child, which is going to be a challenge. :D
