Well, today was the first Sunday of Advent, which seems hard to believe, and we're almost to December. How did that happen?? We've been away and I'm still way behind, with quite a few photos and stories to show-and-tell, as well as nearly a week of blog-reading to catch up on. It will be at least another day before I'm back up to speed, but I thought I'd just mention that Phoenicia Publishing, my small and independent publishing company, is having a 15% off sale on most titles through December 1, in anticipation of our new website (sneak preview above) and the announcement of some forthcoming titles. There won't be another sale for several months, so if you've considered buying a copy of Dave Bonta's Odes to Tools, for example, or one of the qarrtsiluni print editions -- for yourself or for a gift -- this is a great time. Christmas is coming!
