I’m back home from Utah!

Well…mostly. My heart is largely in the Portland area, as Ken had to go back to work, and my brain…gods know where that is. I’m not unpacked, I haven’t sorted all the mail (most of it, though), and let’s not even talk about e-mail (although I had some access at Zermatt—they claim there’s wireless throughout, but we were at the far end of the chalets, so we had to haul laptops to the main building for access).

But I’m the geekily proud owner of a new iPhone, as well as the recipient of many amazing experiences (hot air ballooning! birds of prey! snorkeling in a crater!). Plus I arrived home to find comp copies of the luscious The Mammoth Book of the Kama Sutra, containing my lead (!!) story (aka “translation”), “The Tale of the Tigress.”

For now, though, I’m headed off for a nice long relaxing sleep…

Welcome home! I'll look forward to reading more about your adventures and meanwhile, congrats on the perfect placement of your amazing story. I hadn't read this one before it went out so I got to read it like I would anyone else's story...and I loved it.

Thanks, hon! It's funny—this is one of those stories that was a bitch to write. It fought me every step of the way. Now, re-reading it, I'm amazed (and chuffed!) to discover that fight isn't apparent at all; the prose actually flows and does what I wanted it to do.

(At least, I hope it does—anyone else want to chime in with a comment? ::gg::)

Ooooh, that sounds like a story worth reading... when's the book being released?
