No major news this week. The only thing of note is that I’m now 98% certain that the Threads of the Moirae series is going to stretch to four books. I honestly thought it would be a trilogy, but there’s a lot more story there than I thought. Fortunately, Clean Teen Publishing has said that they’re okay with four books, so if that’s how it turns out, I’m covered!
The only other news if that I added a “Just for Fun” section to this website this week. It’s a work in progress area where I hope to showcase my interests outside of writing and reading. Currently I’m envisioning some of the content as permanent and other items as a rotating showcase of things from around the web. We’ll see how it goes. Since I’ve given up the notion of keeping this site exclusively focused on writerly pursuits, the floodgates are open to all kinds of weirdness.
Right now there’s not much there, but it’ll be growing in the weeks to come. If you enjoy board games, movies, fan fiction, science/nature/space exploration/astronomy, fantasy, sci-fi, fandoms, Lego, comics, video games, etc., stay tuned and watch this area grow. Hopefully you’ll find something that catches your fancy.
The Reading List
- The Reader, by Traci Chee. This YA fantasy novel centers around a girl, Nin, who lives in an illiterate society. When her father is murdered, the only clue is a book he left behind. To find out what happened and punish those responsible, she must crack the secrets of reading and get a little help from a mysterious stranger.
- Seinfeldia, by Jennifer Keishin Armstrong. This is a look back at how a simple show managed to change television, pop culture, and the world. I enjoyed Seinfeld when it was on, but I didn’t really start to appreciate it until I started watching the reruns when I got older. There are some things I didn’t get as a kid, but now that I do, it’s even funnier. This fan guide is now a must read for me.
