I'm home today with my sick toddler, so no officebaby adventures on twitter this time. He was sicker yesterday, when he just lay around on the couch like a moping teenager, emitting occasional moans, refusing to eat, being feverish, wheezing, and falling asleep on the floor (which he never does). He's still wheezing today, but he ate with actual appetite at lunch time, so I think he's on the mend.

My beloved editor for Rangergirl and the Marla Mason novels, Juliet Ulman, is interviewed and featured in the Omnivoracious Blog at Amazon.com today. Jeff VanderMeer put it together, and has more cool stuff about her at his own blog. Juliet rocks. She's freelance now, and you could hardly do better if you have editing needs. Her company is called Paper Tyger.

Catherynne M. Valente (another of Juliet's clients, coincidentally -- observe my segue!), Tiptree winner and novelist and poet (as seen in Flytrap), is in pretty dire financial straits, and is publishing a YA novel (The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making) in installments, and asking for donations, to keep her ship afloat. Get the details here, and help if you can.

There but for the grace of, you know, whatever, go I. Or any of us. Not so long ago my wife and I were looking into selling our plasma for grocery money; if some foreign book sale money hadn't arrived (and if I hadn't sold a bunch of author copies of my books), we'd be in a position as bad as Cat's. Let's hope the internet can help save her. Sometimes it can.
