So . . . did you miss me while I was gone? :-)
I had a good holiday, although I didn't get as much writing done as I would have liked. However, I got some work done on my OTF project (the transcripts) and I'm going to spend the next couple of days cleaning up the work I've done on it so far to get it ready for printing . . . provided my toner gets here.
If you're on my Facebook then you've heard me (seen me?) whining about how unseasonably warm it is here. But in spite of the wretched heat, my gardens are looking good, especially the front one that needed to be dug out completely. This week is supposed to be rainy, which will be good for my flowers.
I have to confess, one of the bad things I did last week was get addicted to Castleville on Facebook. Fortunately, I'm still low enough in points that I can't play it for long before I run out of energy (in the game). And I don't have many neighbours to visit either. So if you're on Facebook and play Castleville, look me up and be my neighbour! :-)
Did you see? I finally updated my Goodreads list. There were so many of them that most of them didn't get reviews, so that'll be something to plug away at over the summer. I guess I should also confess here that I started out my blog vacation by reading four books in a row. But you know what? I don't feel guilty at all. Sometimes you just need to read.
This week I'll be continuing my work on the OTF project and I was sent a novel to edit, which I can't wait to sink my teeth into. I've already read it through once and now I get to go over it with my red pen, electronically speaking. ;-)
Please note that Friday there is a special event taking the place of the flash fiction and poetry posts, namely the release of my second novel in the Ardraci Elemental series, An Elemental Fire. Next Monday I'll be announcing a contest for a chance to win a copy, so stay tuned.
What’s Up This Week:
The schedule is up on the side bar, so I’m just giving the highlights here.
Tuesday On Random Thoughts We have Part Twelve of Prophets and Prophecies, Potuluri Virabrahmendra Swami. On Random WritingsI will be doing a review of one of the books I read at the beginning of my vacation. Next week I'll be reviewing the book I'm currently reading and I'm hoping to add an author's interview.
Wednesday (on Random Writings) Chapter Fifty-three of Shades of Errol Flynn. I’m going to leave it as a surprise as to what’s going to happen because every time I think I know, the characters do something completely different. And on Random Thoughts there’ll be another hump day hunk for your viewing pleasure. ;-)
Thursday we have Chapter Eighteen of Water (on Random Thoughts). I believe Ravi is just about done with his tespiro - and maybe we'll learn what happened to Nereida.
Friday The official release date for An Elemental Fire.
