Yes, Tao and Dow are pretty much homophones.
In other news: Remember when I was looking for a proofreader for “Kea’s Flight”? Well, I’m looking for a proofreader again.
This time, I’ve put together a collection of short stories called “If the World Ended, Would I Notice?” and I’m hoping to have it self-published before Machine of Death 2 comes out. I have a story in Machine of Death 2, and it’ll be nice if people who like that story can look me up and go “Ooh, she has some other short stories too? I wanna read them!”
The new collection is mostly science fiction and fantasy. It is about 350 pages or so, and is aimed at adults who might enjoy Machine of Death (some swearing, some sexy themes, a few dark and violent themes). I’m interested to see people’s reaction to it.
People who help me with it will have their names included on the dedication page, as with Kea’s Flight. If you help me enough, you might even get a free copy if you want. Email me at humanalien at gmail dot com, or voice your interest in a comment here on Abby and Norma.
