You probably wonder why you're looking at a picture of this dog. Two reasons: First, I'm practicing inserting pictures into my blog, something I've never done before (this one is too big but I don't know how to alter it now that's it's here.) At the NASA workshop and Worldcon, I'd like to take pictures and put them in my posts. This is rehearsal.
Second, last week the author's copies of my bio-thriller DOGS finally reached me from Tachyon Press. I have been happily giving them away to friends and relatives. This tiny creature, Cosette, was my model for one of the book's canine protagonists, Minette. She's not on the cover, so now she's here. Looking, it seems to me, a bit bemused to find she has a web presence.
Pictures of people to follow in a few days.
