An interview I did for Fallen Angel Reviews is up today and will be around at their site for most of February. If you have a chance stop by.
I can’t believe January has passed by so quickly. I’m still waiting for my editor to get back to me on whether she wants to buy Surviving Eden for Crescent Moon Press. My fingers are crossed.
Let’s move on to a few odds and ends. For those of you signed up for my Newsletter, I got the first edition out this month. It’s archived if you decide to join my Yahoo newsletter group after today. The newsletter included an excerpt from Surviving Eden, so it’s worth signing on.
On the personal front, I actually went out and saw a movie this week. Leap Year. It was adorable and I have to thank a few of the Quirky Ladies for dragging me out. I don’t get out to many movies. I average maybe two every year. The two I saw in 2009 were on the same day. Feast or Famine.
I decided because I am so woefully behind on movies (I used to be like everybody else before kids and my writing and actually went to the theaters) I should subscribe to Netflix. I can’t use video on demand because we have no cable television. I’ll let you know how that goes although I’m already nervous because when our first movie arrived I ripped away part of the return envelope they include for ease.
The other new factor in my life is my brand new Nook e reader. Shh, don’t tell Barnes and Noble but so far I’ve been reading the PDF files I already had downloaded on my computer. I’ve bought exactly one book from the Barnes and Noble system, although I intend to purchase more, probably in February when new releases come out. I’ll let you know if they have what I want to my satisfaction. My pattern has been to create a list in advance of the stories I want and go to the book store or order hard copies on-line on release day. If there’s a lag for the new releases I demand in their e versions I can imagine becoming pretty upset.
Overall, I like reading on the Nook. It loads more slowly than I would like, although I expect the result of all of our technology is a mass mindset of impatience. We want everything fast and easy today. And I love not having to pack multiple books when I travel.
I’m off to nourish my writer’s soul at a mini writing retreat today, so wish me luck.
Be well all,
