Advance Warning: August = Head Down

So, I’m looking at my August schedule and I’m apparently spending at least two weeks of that month traveling and/or promoting Zoe’s Tale, and somewhere in there I’m actually supposed to be finished with The High Castle (which at the moment appears, um, optimistic). So while I don’t expect to disappear completely in August — that doesn’t seem like a smart thing to do when I’ll have a new novel to promote — it does seem likely that my posting frequency here will dial back quite a bit, say, to maybe once a day or once every other day.

I may fill some slots with reruns from the vast, silent archives, or through doing some audience participation, or by having some guest bloggers* — or I may just, you know, do nothing and just post once a day or every other day or whatever. I haven’t decided yet. I’ll be sure to let you know. But I wanted to give you all fair warning that this dog days lull is on its way.

(* — incidentally, a great way to absolutely make sure you will not be a guest blogger here is to send me an e-mail or comment volunteering to be one. Really, just don’t. Thanks.)

  1. The last time I guest blogged for somebody, I killed his traffic. So secure in the knowledge you aint about to let me have the keys I make this simple, heart felt, sincere request. Can I be a guest blogger?

    I do not eagerly anticipate your gladsome acceptance of my offer.

  2. Guest bloggers, ok.

    But I really want those Big Idea posts. Those are amazing.

  3. I don’t care how many times you ask. I will NOT guest blog! I don’t even know how to blog. Just so you know DON’T ask.

    seriously good luck with your deadlines.

  4. Am I the only one who doesn’t believe him? Usually when he says he’ll be traveling and/or on deadline, we get some massive spewing of time wasting posts.

  5. As long as you don’t leave this strange baby diarrhea brown-yellow back drop up all august, I’ll be happy.

  6. Zizban:

    It’s gold, dude.


    Still firming them up — I’ll let folks know.

  7. We’ll miss you when you’re gone, but I have to gloat for about 2 seconds and say that I’ll be in my bunny hole, too–getting ready for VP XII!
    See ya on the other side :)

  8. I am in love with the duck banner. My husband’s rubber duck collection is obviously sadly lacking…Why don’t you do the “lockdown mode” approach again, tossing out a question to everyone once a day?
