Next month we’re actually going on a real vacation, a cruise to Bermuda! I’m looking forward to it but I’m also anxious because I don’t think we’ve been away for this long since we started RDSP. Most years we tried to convince ourselves that going to a convention was a vacation (even though we work 3 times as hard at a convention).

Plus this trip will come right in the middle of our big bunch of releases. I think I’ve got a handle on all the production for the books. I’m ahead of schedule on a lot of releases. But I don’t like the idea of being out of touch. I know there’s internet access on the ship but I also know it’s too expensive for us. I hope none of the authors panic while we’re gone!
