But I don't feel too bad because back in 2012, we flew home from our vacation on Mother's Day, and that night, Mr. Snarky and his friend went to see Roger Waters. I didn't want to see that concert, but leaving me home with jet-lagged kids on Mother's Day is worse than leaving him home with the kids on some random Friday, so I think this makes us even.
Anyhow, I should probably go, I don't know, put gel in my hair or something to prepare for my nostalgia trip to the 80s, so let's get the links done.
First, the book promo links:
I am now ready to sign up advance readers for The Burning. If you're interested in being an advance reader, sign up here.
Water into Wine comes out Wednesday! (You can pre-order the ebook now via the links on that page.)
Here's an interview with Water into Wine's author, Joyce Chng, over at Fran Wilde's blog.
On to the other links. I don't have that many this week, because I gave the online version of my Navigate the Path to Industry seminar on Wednesday, and doing that and all my other work kept me a bit busier than usual.
I've thought for some time that America needs to a truth and reconciliation commission or some other means for publicly coming together and discussing our past. So I like Tom Perriello's call for one in Virginia.
The Pod Save America crew's interview with HuffPost editor-in-chief Lydia Polgreen was really interesting.
Jamelle Bouie on political correctness is definitely worth your time.
Ed Yong's getting to see some cool stuff in New Zealand: first kakapos and now baby kiwis.
Sometimes the internet is still fun:

And if you somehow missed the Mary-Clare King story that was circulating this week, here is a tweet with both the video and the written version:
Amazing story of Dr. Mary-Claire King right before she receives the grant that lead to BRCA1 fame. Video is best: https://t.co/ICjqo0VU67 https://t.co/cYvBl80qjx— Adora Cheung (@nolimits) September 17, 2017
And that's all I have. Time to go gel my hair!
Have a good weekend, everyone.
