Here's a late Halloween treat for all you GrandWilliam followers.
I just spent the last two hours trying to catch up on LJ. I TRIED!!! But I just can't get through all of your posts. I hate missing things, curious oyster that I am. I suppose I'll just have to pick up once there's power back. Forward, ho!
He's doing really well, by the way. Really well. Coming up on three months sober, looking into completing classes he took incompletes for last spring, and working at a daycare to see if he really wants to go into research science, or follow his heart and work with children. I have a feeling he's going to switch his major a little bit and become a high school science teacher. We'll see.
I had a William Weekend! It was such fun. We went down to NJ so his mama and dad could go to a friend's wedding. The hubs and I spent the day with my parents and Will. We took him to a farm where he got to feed goats and chickens--even if we had to keep reminding him the pellets and crackers were NOT William snacks--and see all the other animals. Then we went out for dinner before heading home for bathtime. After we played about half an hour, it was time for bed. He was so good! And so adorable. And even though I don't get to see him as much as I'd like, he REALLY loves me.
Yesterday was a day of leisure. Gorgeous fall day, some time with my honey, a quiet dinner, football (Jets lost but the Giants won!) Boardwalk Empire. Nice day.
It is Monday, yes it is, and that means there's a new post up over on Heroines of Fantasy. Guest author Melissa Mickelsen talks about her fabulous book, Nightingale. This is a dark one, folks. I loved it. And I loved meeting Melissa at ConQuest last May. A Hadley Rille Books sister, and talented writer. There's an excerpt up too.
I can tell you what it is, but not what it says. My Publishers' Weekly review is posted!!! But for some reason, we've been unable to access it. I know the reviewer starts off calling it "gripping," but no idea what comes after that! AGONY AND WOE!!! I hope that I have something to share by the end of the day, and that it is happy-share, not commiserate-with-me share. :)
That will get its own post, so here I'm going to share a link to Heroines of Fantasy (as I do EVERY Monday!) wherein Karin Gastreich talks about NON-fantasy books that have inspired her writing life.
My launch was FABULOUS! I sold every book I had, and even had to dip into my private stock to provide extras. What a gas, eh?
And because it has been far too long:
