Gaiman’s Death:The High Cost of Living Free

For those of you who like comic books, Neil Gaiman, or both, I thought you’d like to know that Vertigo Comics has the first issue of Death: The High Cost of Living available as a free download. Here is a synopsis of the comic from their site:

From the pages of Neil Gaiman’s SANDMAN comes the young, pale, perky, and genuinely likable Death. One day in every century, Death walks the Earth to better understand those to whom she will be the final visitor. Today is that day. As a young mortal girl named Didi, Death befriends a teenager and helps a 250-year old homeless woman find her missing heart. What follows is a sincere musing on love, life and (of course) death.

I haven’t read it yet, but I have downloaded it read when I get some “free time”. Enjoy!


Just Hit 20,000 Words

Well, it’s 12:30 AM and I just hit 20,000 words.  It feels great.  I’m still on pace to hit 50,000 by the end of the month.

As I write this, my daughter (1 1/2 years old) is sleeping in my bed with my wife.  We never do that, but our daughter seems to be getting sick and this is the only way she is sleeping.  I think it’s going to be a long night.
