Caturday quickies: What I did this afternoon


Hi all!  I went to the local Chapters and hung out for a bit with my friend Kim Fahner, who was doing a book signing with her new writing friend Sarah Lashbrook.

Kim and Sarah talking to fans :)

Of course, I bought Sarah’s book, Where the Stream and Creek Collide, and asked her if she wouldn’t mind doing an interview on Writerly Goodness 🙂  Look forward to that in the coming weeks.

Of course, I had to feed my book addiction and spent $80 altogether on Sarah’s book, YA fantasy and adult fantasy novels.  In the past couple of weeks I also scavenged a pile of books from the several boxes my mom was taking to a book sale, and got the StoryBundle of ebook classic SF for a nominal donation (excellent deal – go, consume).

Yes, I read procedurals, classics, and other stuff as well as fantasy ;)

Did I mention addiction?

Yeah.

In other news, I’m going to take a short blogging holiday next weekend.

I’m off to a friend’s pre-wedding celebration in Michigan City, IN on Saturday.  If I was independently wealthy, I’d be going to her destination wedding, but this seemed a happy compromise for both of us.

Try not to miss me too much 😉

Next up: I’m finally finished K.M. Weiland’s Dreamlander and I’ll be reviewing that today.  I joined Story Cartel and got the ebook free for an honest interview.  This is another great ebook site I’d highly reccommend.  Free books!  ‘Nuff said 🙂  I also hope to have a guest blog coming up for you tomorrow.

Upon my return, I’ll get Sarah’s interview up and continue on my merry way.  There are a couple of fun things coming up in August: a Dala concert and a Great Big Sea concert.  I’ll be blogging those as well as keeping you up to date on the work sitch.

My current acting will be up as of August 31 and I still have no idea whether I’m heading back to my old unit (absolutely fine with me), if the pool I’m in will result in a new assignment, or if my application on an internal competition will result in something else.  I’m not good with uncertainty.

So lots of Writerly Goodness yet to come 🙂

    • Thanks, Gemma. This will be my first blogging holiday since I started (!) Funny how the word “blogging” seems to want to be used as a “colourful euphamism” (read damned or f*ing). LOL! I’ve often thought of that over the year and a bit I’ve been doing this … blogging schedule, blogging writing, blogging rejections! I think it’s fun. Thanks for stopping by and inspiring my silliness 🙂

  1. Well this is interesting … I think we met on Saturday. The bald dude on the left in that picture is me, I don’t remember how I stumbled on this blog, I think one of my writer friends tweeted a link.

    Cheers! 🙂

  2. Ouch. The book addiction is bad, huh? I finally had to limit myself to one new book a month and I get everything else from the library.

    Secret: Occasionally I fall off the wagon. 😉
