Sunrise: Moonrise

I got a great sunrise this morning. I’m in the middle of words—just about exactly in the middle, in fact, and oddly, am writing about Genna’s first moonrise in reach of the moon in three months. Genna never had an issue with moonrises until she found herself on a moonroad.

Now, she’s discovering she has a bit of a problem.

Not me, though. The sunrise is a beautiful mix of purple clouds and orange-y-pink sky that has turned the white fur on the throat and paws of the cat in the window a radiant peach. Fresh night air, a fan, the music from the BioShock orchestral score going—you can legally download the orchestral score (.zip file — 23 MB) for free from 2K Games, the producer—and the words are finding me.

I love mornings.

    Somehow I missed that you had a date. That’s exciting; I can’t wait to pick it up. 🙂

    Hi, Jess–

    The Ruby Key will be out May 1st, 2008. It will be hardcover, priced at $16.99, have 368 pages, and there’s even an editor’s description available. I have a copy of the cover on my shelf right now. It’s luminous. Can’t post it until closer to the sales date, though—publisher request.

    Hawkspar is the one that I still don’t know about.

    Could you remind us when approximately The Ruby Key will be out? I know you don’t have a date yet, but I’m wondering in general how long we have to wait! 🙂

    What’s with all this effervescent bubbliness? Grumble. Grumble. Grumble.

    (BG)Glad you’re having a beautiful morning and the words are flowing. What a beautiful start to a day!
