There will be one more week of light posting before I resume my regular Sunday to Thursday schedule. I will divulge the reasons for this after next week.
But I do want to congratulate frequent commenter and awesome blogger Carolyn Crane — of The Thrillionth Page — for the publication of her novel, Mind Games. I’ll do a full write-up of it in my next Debut Showcase, but in the meantime, be sure to visit her blog and site and check out her novel. It interests me because it features a non-kick-ass protagonist, and who can resist a group called the disillusionists? One can tell right away that this is no typical urban fantasy.
In fact, I’m liking a lot more of the urban fantasies that various publishers have sent my way. Fewer vampires and demons, more imaginative plots on other subjects. I even have a zombie novel — Empire by David Dunwoody — that intrigues me almost in spite of myself. (Oh, that’s why. This is actually a science fiction novel. Which is still good!)
Oh! And next week I still plan on putting up a few posts, including my review of Master of None by Sonya Bateman, and my review of a TV series that my husband has been renting (and which partially explains my distraction from my blog). In general, I don’t watch TV — I lost interest in TV when I got my first computer — but who can resist a husband who wants to watch a good show with you. Well, at least they started out good, but . . . but then, I’ll save that for my review.
And I must indulge in a brag. My daughter, who was a year behind at the start of the school season, has done an entire year of coursework in all her courses except one! At this rate, she’ll be caught up by the end of next year and after that, there will be no holding her back.
