I was kind of hoping to post that The Artifact Competition audiobook was currently in production, but for some reason that fell through. Thus, I'm bummed.
However, my wife and daughter (and mother-in-law and sister-in-law) will be arrive here in Honolulu tomorrow from Japan for 5 days so I'm stoked! The visa paperwork is awaiting signature, but is otherwise ready to go. Phase 3 of the Big Change is imminent!
