My 2019 Reading Favorites

I read 79 books in 2019, which is lower than last year. Considering that I read a lot of my own books (either in editing or in preparing to write something new in a series) that number is actually more like 67. In looking at my spreadsheet where I track my reading, I see long…Continue reading My 2019 Reading Favorites

A Year in Reading: 2018 Wrap-up

2018 was a good year for me with writing and publishing. I published six books, wrote four (and one that was a failure), did some short fiction, and generally had a great time. I also did more reading than I expected, finishing 100 books! Some of those were my own as I did final read-throughs…Continue reading A Year in Reading: 2018 Wrap-up

Monday morning reading

Monday. I don’t actually dread Mondays. They’re like resetting the switch for the week, getting a fresh start. I like to start Monday with a new book, though this week it’s actually an old book called Ripley Under Water. I found the book The Talented Mr. Ripley in New Orleans and gradually became addicted to…Continue reading Monday morning reading

The Great New Orleans Adventure, Day Five

We got off to a leisurely start, sleeping in until nearly 10. The idea of going out for breakfast yet again made me cringe; I don’t normally eat breakfast because my stomach wakes up sometime around 11. So I had the bright idea of running over to the corner market and getting juice and granola…Continue reading The Great New Orleans Adventure, Day Five

This…Continue reading In which there is much writerly news

Since she does her reading late at…Continue reading BURNING BRIGHT audiobook!
