Waldgrave fans: I have some bad news, and some good news.
Today, I was drinking my coffee with pumpkin spice creamer in it on the couch while emailing. The phone rang, I went to get it, and jostled my coffee, spilling on part of my keyboard. I have never spilled anything on a laptop before, not even as a child, so after I got over my initial shock, I sprung into action.
I dried it up and did everything I knew to do (flipping the laptop, etc.) and things seemed to be fine. Then, an hour later, my arrow keys (where I spilled) started acting funny. I popped the keys of to see if anything was stuck (I am a second generation nerd with a dad into hardware, so this came naturally to me). That's when I made the horrifying discovery that there was still liquid down there, trapped such that I could not get to it to dry it up.
Thanks to some help on Google Plus (thanks again, Jerry Huckaby!) I think I have prevented any more serious damage from happening. However, this is the machine where I have been writing and editing my novels, including the Waldgrave series.
In fear that I might have fried my machine, or that the machine was in the process of frying, I grabbed the essential novel files I could and emailed them to myself. This included all the edits to Waldgrave 3, because those came to mind first as something I hadn't backed up yet.
I anticipate a minor delay in getting Waldgrave 3 out the door, depending on what has happened to my faithful laptop. However, the files and edits are safe.
