So sorry to be absent for such a long time—between travels, the travails of adult children, new(ish) house to be furnished, Irritating Computer Difficulties (I installed Norton 360, which promptly assasinated my wireless connection, and continues to do its level best to keep me from getting online), and the dramatic and ongoing Saga of Doug's Ear (about which, more shortly)…well, anyway.
And I am, alas, not the only one having difficulties this month. I'd sent Rosana—delightful and beloved webmistress—a chunk of stuff (announcements, appearances, new excerpts, etc.) about ten days ago, but her poor father had suffered a heart attack the day before, and she'd had to rush out to New Mexico to take care of him. Consequently, none of that stuff has yet made it onto the website.
Normally not a problem—excerpts are good, whenever [g]—but I had heard a few inquiries as to whether I'd be at the North Carolina Grandfather Mountain Highland Games this weekened—and that was one of the announcements. So--
YES!! I will be at
Black Bear Books

Boone, NC 28607
Those are the onstage times; I reckon I'll be wandering around the Games on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning, as well. See you there!
