Busy, busy, busy!

October 1, 2009

The return to school and a more defined routine has not been kind to me!  As always, like has thrown a few curve balls my way, and as such, I am finding it difficult to get everyday things done, never mind write even a word.

I did finish editing Abra Ebner’s new book, “Parallel”, which hit the market on Wednesday, September 23rd.  It looks marvelous, and I wish Abby much continued success.  I am also hard at work editing her first book, “Feather”, and then am moving on to edit its sequel, “Guardian”.  Editing for Abby has kept me busy, but I am determined to get my own second book edited and out there sometime this fall!  Keep an eye out for it – “When We Meet Again”.  (My family is planning an overnight camping trip next weekend, so I am turning off the ringer, locking the doors, and chaining myself to the computer…hopefully, that will allow me to get some work done!)

While I did not write much over the summer, I did read with a voracious appetite, as any good author does.  I started the Sookie Stackhouse books by Charlaine Harris, and within three weeks, had devoured all nine books!  I am waiting with bated breath for a collection of short stories by Ms. Harris that are due out on October 6th called “A Touch of Dead” (Ace Books) – all previously released but as-yet unread by yours truly!  In the meantime, I began the Harper Connelly series by Ms. Harris and enjoyed the first enough to read others, but not nearly as much as the Sookie books.  (Something about vampires, werewolves and other supernatural creatures that I cannot resist!)

I am also currently reading “This Charming Man” by Marian Keyes (Penguin Books), which was released in May 2008, but I am just getting around to.  Great book – funny, touching, and a heck of a ride.  Ms. Keyes is one of my favorite Irish authors, and I highly recommend anyone of her books.  I also recently read two books by one of my favorite British authors, Madeleine Wickham (AKA Sophie Kinsella of the “Shopaholic” series fame).  “Sleeping Arrangements” and “The Wedding Girl” were ab-fab (British reference!) and I recommend them as well.

Well, as the pile of books at my bedside – and yours – grows, I bid you farewell, and until we meet again…

Happy reading!
