ODIN IS TOTALLY NOT REVELING IN THE DEATH OF SUMMER NOPE NOT ONE BIT.
In the meantime, I have been doing more and more running around with appointments as more and more pieces of me begin to fall off. My bones are dissolving to goo, which will suck when the Skeleton War happens, because I will not have a skeleton to participate in.
Some not so great news, it turns out Eris has a metric fuckton of cysts in her gallbladder and liver, which is causing issues with digestion. After an ultrasound the radiologists have determined that since she has lost so much weight, they do not want to operate and try to remove them. Our vet is contacting a researcher friend who specializes in liver functions to see if there is other options. So for right now, all we can do is keep feeding her constantly, which unfortunately means force feeding her a slurry of high calorie gel mixed with broth. She doesn’t mind the taste, but will not eat it on its own. She has gained an ounce since her last visit, but she’s still severely underweight. Other than that, she’s still bright eyed and active, so we’re not sure what to do at this point. Pic for tax:
I snuck into Michaels after an appointment to see if their Halloween shit was out yet AND LO IT WAS. Some of it anyways, they’re still shioving out the suimmer stuff. A lot of previous year’s decor, and not so much the fancy house decor yet.
They were also having 70% off their summer shit because it’s totally not ever yet but what the hell. And, with the promises of a butterwort, I came home with this:
YA KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS??? THE PLANT SAGA IS GROWING. SOON IT WILL HAVE SENTIENCE. Also that claw orb thingy was adorable and I have to figure out where I’m sticking it.
There will obviously be more updates to this saga shortly, as soon as I get enough materials.
Progress is going together well. I have the current chapter mostly polished, as well as the beginnings of one pass of Beta reads. With all going this way, we should hopefully be looking at a Halloween release. Be on the lookout for Cover reveals and Pre-orders in September-ish
I am doing a few events at libraries, because let’s be honest , libraries are my second home.
The first is Cirque du Geek over at Waterville Public Library on September 13th – 15th.
Tsis is a FREE Anime/Geek convention held at the library. Chec out details on vendors and events over on their facebook page:
And then Bookstacks & Bossfights Gaming Convention over at the Turner Library on October 5th and 6th.
LOTS of gaming and geekery going on here, as well as medieval demonstrations from the local chapter of the SCA and my chapter of HEMA. There’s also a prize which you might be able to win a HARDCOVER copy of Sleepless Flame 😉 So if you wanna see some sword fightin’ early registration is ending THIS MONTH. Check out the website for more details on every event:
That’s about all that is in the goings on of Odin. Check back later for the continuation of the Plant Saga and other updates~
Until Next Time!
