Last week's half-price sale in Polychrome Heroics went exceptionally well. All but 3 of the poems sold. \o/ This is a huge help to our cash flow, recently struggling due to household hardware problems. I have started posting the sponsored poems -- the first three are up -- but there will be some heat-related delays.

We still have no air conditioning. The temperature got down into the 60s last night but my office only got down to 82F. *headdesk* But at least the low evening temperatures assist in cooling off the great room.

Poetry in Microfunding:

There are two open epics at present.

"Rainshadow Road" belongs the Daughters of the Apocalypse series. It introduces Maggot to the Clearwater Caravan.

"A Celebration and a Consolation" belongs to Polychrome Heroics. Keira comforts her mother after the breakup.

The weather has been wet here, with heavy rain the night before last. Seen at the birdfeeders this week: a small flock of house finches, a few mourning doves, a lady cardinal, and a squirrel. I saw a large flock of goldfinches while we were driving around the countryside -- Cumberland county has some extensive prairie restoration patches of native flowers and grasses. Currently blooming: violas, spiderwort, a couple of white things in the wildflower garden, purple coneflower, yellow coneflower, Shasta daisy, morning glories, blackberry lily, nasturtium, cup plant, black-eyed Susan, Queen Anne's lace, petunia. Blackberries and mulberries are ripe.
