And I’ve done the major revisions of A Marriage of
Insects
, and, once again, I’d like some volunteer
readers.

Do you volunteer to read the first few chapters, the teaser for publishers, and give me your most incisive comments on it? (Understanding that I will pick zero or more people who say Yes, with no insult intended to the ones I don't pick.)

Yes!

Why jog exquisite bulk, fond crazy vamp? Daft buxom jonquil, Zephyr's gawky vice ... Guy fed by work, quiz Jove's xanthic lamp! Zow! Qualms by deja-vu gyp fox-kin thrice!
