Greetings from sizzling Southern California. We’re having a bit of a heat wave here — ranging from 95 to 100+ degrees all week. I generally prefer hot weather to cold, but this is just a bit early in the season for my taste. I like some in-between temperatures to help me acclimate.
The good news, however, is that it’s Friday! And you all know what Friday means… I’ve got a kind of eclectic collection of links this week, but I hope you find them entertaining. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend filled with books and good writing time and a nice cool breeze.
