Alright, so in my last post that lasted all of .7 seconds I promised a more in-depth update especially seeing as the year is half over and I haven't talked about the second quarter reading catalogue! And seeing as I just finished the best book I've read so far this year, I guess we'll start there.
My goal this year is to read 24 books and though I'm a little behind I am nowhere near as lagging as I have been in the past. I just finished the 10th book of the year which puts me at 42% and just two books behind schedule. When I last left off, I believe it was either with Agents of Dreamland or Rupert Wong and the Ends of the Earth. I could go back and look at the old post but I'd have to draft this one click out, find the post, yada-yada whatever. Okay so random fire two-sentence reviews:
Okay, now that we have that out of the way: things are progressing. Subs are out. Drafts are done. Good things be happenin! If you're across the pond keep you're eyes open. A member of the street team is country hopping through Europe and is planning on Emma Watson'ing a couple copies of the book. So, if you happen to stumble upon it wherever it is hidden, tag myself and Owl Hollow Press on social media and I'll reach out with something special to send you.
So it was recently learned that a close friend of mine had never caught fireflies as a kid. (Believe in the fireflies) Well, you better believe that prompted a twilight game of catch the flying little ones. I assure you, joy ensued. But aside from childhood recollections things haven't settled down come 'deck chilling weather'. Travel's been up. Avoidance of news headlines has skyrocketed. And I even have a few short pieces out on sub. Fingers crossed.
I'd love to tell you that I have some information on the sophomore literary attempt. . . But I don't. On purpose. Anything to keep you guessing. Seeing as the year is half over (which also means we are roughly 10% of the way through The Empire Strikes Back) a responsible me would have a reading update for you filled with reviews and other bookish goodness. But alas, I am not responsible. So I leave you with the promise of book reviews forthcoming (I really would have them for this post except I have about 100 pages left in a novel that I can't put down and I don't want to post an update before I finish it).
I'll also string you along on the promise of writerly news in the next week or so. I know, how inconsiderate of me. If only I wasn't so rude ; )
