Google Groups Post - Round up for Apr-May

Sent to my Googlegroup first. Here because I remembered. :)

Because I think I would forget my head if it wasn't attached, I've asked my PA, Lily, to collect monthly round ups for me so that ya'll will hear from me once a month. They won't be as long as this one normally.

April 1-May 31
At the end of April, Jennifer was able to upgrade to active status with SFWA after recent sales to DAW. Go Jennifer!

===Sales:
"Discordance" to the anthology Tales of Valdemar #7 (DAW)
