Valentines and The Year of the TIger
Another of those slow news weeks. Lost is back (want to bet who Sayid has become?)and I like that. I’m working on book seven which now has the working title Crossroads (thanks critique group) and the edits for Chosen are in the bag.
One other little bit of trivia: All five books in the Anna Strong series are available today at Audible books. The narrator is Dina Pearlman. If you’d like a sample, click here
You can’t make this stuff up. Seems there’s a prize for everything. The Bookseller magazine has announced the longest ever longlist for its annual Diagram prize for the oddest book title of the year. A few examples: Bondage for Beginners, the Origin of Faeces (which is the British word for yes—you guessed it—feces), and my personal favorite, Father Christmas Needs a Wee. Click here
Another friend with a debut book—Shannon Baker and Ashes of the Red Heifer. If you are in the Denver area, she will be at Who Else Books on Feb 20. The address is 200 So. Broadway, Denver, CO 80203, 303-744-2665. Time for the signing will be 3 PM. Carol Berg and Janet Fogg will also be signing. Let’s turn out and make Shannon’s first signing one to remember.
So what are you doing for Valentine’s Day? Which happens to coincide with the Chinese New Year. Year 4708
. Which happens to be more interesting to me than wine and roses and chocolate—well, maybe not more interesting than chocolate. But close. Anyway, regardless of what you’re celebrating, any plans?
