What a great week. Geno and I traveled to one of the happiest places on the planet and met with our friends at Voce. Definitely same tribe kind of folks. (They were gracious enough to put us up in their condo across the street from their offices. As you can imagine, Geno’s a seriously fun roommate.)
Everyone here is working hard and putting in lots of hours on some really cool projects.
We made the official Brains on Fire book announcement on the blog and response was amazing. We will gather all the responses and make some decisions about who is getting book gallys with the next two weeks. Sound like a plan? I wish I had twenty books for everyone who took the time to answer. Or tweet about it.
Thank you very, very much.
Also, Eric Whitlock has been finalizing the cover art. Which I failed to tell you is a compilation of 17 artists doodles. Sort of a visual representation of a movement. Wiley was kind enough to let us design our own cover since we are very particular about that sort of thing.
AND it’s raining baby boys around here. Megan (or Mama Byrd as we call her now) is expecting a baby boy. So is Justin Gammon. Well, his wife is actually having the baby. And Logan Metcalfe and his wife just welcomed a baby boy into the world last week. I love having babies around the office. So that is going to be big fun.
Okay. So want to play chat pack this week? Come on. This one is easy.
This week’s question:
If you had to change your first name, what would you choose as your new name?
Hmmm. I have always liked my name. It’s one that could be male or female which is always fun. I get a lot of Dear Mr. Phillips email. When I was little I begged my family to change my name to Hope. Go figure. But right now, if I had to change it. I’d go with Frank. OR some set of initials like RL. RL Phillips. Kind of sounds like a race car driver.
Happy Friday. Make it count! And do something unexpected this weekend. Step out of your comfort zone. I have been doing that a lot lately. And it’s life changing.
