2018 Week #20 Update

After the response to last week’s post, I wonder if I should stop trying to talk about my writing or even books I’m reading and just focus on food ;-)

No, though there’s not much to say about my work this week. And the weather has just gone back and forth between hot and sunny and hot and stormy. So I’ll just mention that I’ve moved on from the Maitlands and started rereading Donna Andrews’ Turing Hopper series. (Her bird books are really good, especially the early mysteries, but the Turing Hopper series is something special – sui generis. And I have a soft spot for books that blend genres.)

2018 Week #19 Update

To mine, and all the other moms out there, Happy Mother’s Day!

We seemed to have skipped spring here and gone straight into summer, with lots of sun and temps in the 90’s. A bit much, but it’s a great excuse to eat my favorite peanut butter ice cream every day. (Yum! Nutritious and delicious…)

2018 Week #18 Update

First, thanks to Judy for her review of Uncertain Murder. Then somehow I forgot to mention this last week – I put the e-book boxset of Miraibanashi the Trilogy on sale to celebrate the arrival of spring. (It came a little late this year.) And I’ll leave it on sale at least another week. So if you haven’t gotten it yet, you can still grab a deeply discounted copy. And spread the word so other readers can take advantage.

Although we’ve had some rain, and this morning was a little chilly, the weather here this week has been mostly dry and sunny and wonderfully warm, and I’ve been enjoying that immensely. Hopefully you’ve been having nice weather too, wherever you are.

2018 Week #17 Update

It’s supposed to get down near freezing here tonight, but hopefully that’ll be the last of the winter weather. And then maybe spring will stick around a while.

Meanwhile, work on Slowpocalypse Book 5 continues to go, well, slowly. But I’m seeing things I don’t think I’d have noticed if I had been zipping along like usual. And I’m really getting to know the characters so much better, which is especially important because—in case you forgot—they’re all new. (One had a kind of cameo appearance at the end of Watchbearers Book 2, but Olivia’s still new. Just not in the same way.)

2018 Week #16 Update

I finished rereading the Daisy Dalrymples and moved on to the Antony Maitland mysteries – an obscure gem of a series (and difficult to get at a reasonable price.) Oh, and I got some good work in on Slowpocalypse Book 5, but I’m still trying to get the words just right. To do justice to a great story.
