At least, that’s what they say. I actually have lots of tidbits to share today, so lets get started.
First, you might have noticed there was no Author Corner this week. Tuesday was moving day for me, so I’ve put a hold on them for the next week or so more. Moving went great. I’m very tired, incredibly sore, and I have lots of bruises and blisters, but I’m all settled in and ready to get down to business. In related news, I bought a 7 qt. Crock Pot for $25. If I’ve never mentioned it, I’m addicted to kitchen stuff.
Author Corner will be returning September 3rd. I’ve got a great new batch of authors stopping by to meet Charlie. Ok, they’re not really coming to meet Charlie. Just, don’t tell him that, ok? He’ll pout, and if you’ve never seen a corpse pouting…well, it’s not an easy image to purge from your brain.
Speaking of interviews, I was recently interviewed. I stopped by The Undercover Reviewer and chatted with Amy. She also reviewed Celia. If you haven’t read it yet, her review is a spoiler so you might want to hold off checking that out. I can tell you she gave it 5 stars. On September 27th, I’ll be appearing on Newbie Writers Podcast. If you’ve ever wanted to hear my dulcet tones, make sure to tune in. Oh, and by dulcet, I mean juvenile. I sound like I’m 12. I’ll be sharing that around when the time comes.
Now that I’ve moved, I’m going to have a lot more time to devote to Enraptured. I’m ready to get back to the grindstone with that. So far, I’m really pleased with how it’s turning out. I have a lot more work to do, but that’s true for a lot of things.
I have some books coming in for Recommend It Monday. I’m pretty excited to be checking out some new-to-me authors. You can look for those in the upcoming weeks.
I’m going to be adding a new page to Erindipity. It occurs to me that, seeing as how I do interviews and book reviews, then perhaps I should have a section about those things. You know, in case anyone wants to pop on in and get molested by my corpse. No, that’s not a euphemism. Sorry. It’s not up yet, but look for it by the end of the day.
I dusted off the website a bit and spruced it up. If you’re new to the blog, mosey on over to the site and have a look around. The newest interview is posted and there are two short stories available. Yes, I said mosey. I also say “fixin’ to,” “done” as in “I done started it already,” and “caterwauling.” I just try not to say them in public. Much.
Grad school starts next week. I have orientation tonight. I wouldn’t go, but they’re going to have food. I always go where the food is. I’m excited to be starting my advanced degree and getting this next piece of my plan going.
I have a guest post for Rainstorm Press coming up on September 10th, and I’ll make sure to have links to that handy. I have no clue what I’m writing about yet. It may have something to do with pie. I once rewrote Psalm 23 and started it out, “The pie is my pastry; I shall not want.” I’m relatively certain there’s a special circle of Hell reserved for people like me.
I’m the webmistress again for the Indiana University-South Bend Creative Writing Club, so if you know people who would like some writing inspiration, you can send them over there. Writing prompts can be anything from world building to character creation. New posts go up on Wednesdays. You don’t have to be a student at the university to participate online. Post your exercises in the comments and lets discuss.
And hey, cheer up, Buttercup. It’s almost Friday!
