Vote early & bring friends

The SF-and-fantasy übersite is inviting its visitors to vote for the Best Media Tie-In Story of the Year. Among the other excellent works on the ballot is my own Star Trek Destiny: Gods of Night, the first book of my recent trilogy.

Also nominated are works written (and/or edited) by Keith R.A. DeCandido, Dayton Ward & Kevin Dilmore, Terri Osborne, and Christopher L. Bennett, among others.

I hope you’ll follow the link and cast your vote for my book, but no matter which story you vote for, visit the site and make your voice heard.

we did our part

Kara and I voted this morning around 6:15 a.m., shortly after the polls opened in New York City.

There was a short line of people waiting to be told which district they were in, but next to no delays at the machines themselves. Because Kara and I had brought our voter registration cards, we were waved out of that line and ushered right to our voting machines.

No hassles, no problems. Kara went first, since she had to get to work. She voted on machine #1 for our district, and I was on machine #2. I was voter #16 at 6:15 a.m. Voted the party line, scratched my head at Proposition 1, made up my mind, and cast my vote.

Nothing left to do now but (in no particular order)…

  • Continue work on my in-progress web site redesign and recoding;
  • Continue with rewrites and revisions to my manuscript for The Calling;
  • Change the cat litter, gather the trash, and prep the recycling for pickup tomorrow morning;
  • Pick up the clean laundry and make a stop at the pharmacy;
  • Prep the pork loin for dinner tonight;
  • Make brownies for tonight's comfort-food dessert;
  • Hope that we all awaken tomorrow to a President-elect Barack Obama.

Peace out, all.
