First: NEW SHINIES!
This update is half of the 24 items made especially to accompany Unwritten Stories #2, which is either one long and obstinate poem that can't make up its mind about the shape it wants to take or 24 intertwined micropoems... about astrophysics, technology, creativity, magic, and space travel. Read on to find out how you can get a free advance copy of this issue before it's available to the general public!
Also, $9 dichroic glass pendants.
Last week was a rollercoaster, to put it mildly.

Now, some accountability stuff:
My lawyer was paid in full Thursday morning. Depending on what I hear from my accountant today regarding the money I owe the IRS, I will either be able to pay the back property taxes in full this week or pay off enough that I will easily be able to cover the rest before the May 15th deadline to avoid having a lien imposed. (Also I just learned that I need at least $700 in car repairs, but that's what credit cards are for, right?) Money's still going to be tight for a while, but thanks to everyone who stepped in, I definitely don't have to worry about groceries and the mortgage. Thank you.
And now here's what's up with orders from last week:
With a very few exceptions, all orders that didn't involve neckvines or mindfulness pendants have been shipped; orders that involved neckvines have been processed and are going out today, and orders that involve mindfulness pendants will go out Tuesday or Wednesday. Subscriptions should go out by Friday. Orders that come in today and tomorrow will go out in Wednesday's shipment along with Instant Gratification orders, unless they involve neckvines or mindfulness pendants, in which case they'll go out as fast as humanly possible.
