Updates, Etc...

Happy Tuesday Everyone,

Here's the scoop:

Progress is being made on the "polishing" of Surreal. Ideas are popping up like daisies for this other story I'm working on, which, will cover a being completely different than that of Surreal or Conjure A Man. CAM's been on hold while I've been prepping Surreal.  This other story came to me and I had to get it out and we'll see where it takes me. The mermaid story is still being fleshed out. There's some details that aren't quite coming to me, yet.

I've ordered my business cards and I am hoping to get them before the Conference (info on the Conference can be found below). Life got a bit chaotic when my son got sick, so I had to play "catch up" for a bit.

A few notes on some release dates:

Debut author (and someone I know), Robin Badillo, has her first book (I believe an e-book title) coming out next month. Check out Retribution here.  Looks good :-)

I'm totally into Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson & The Olympians books. I have the last one yet to read. Sad that a series has to end, but he has other series started that I'm interested in. And don't let the fact that they're geared toward mid-grade fool you. There's plenty of action and everything else in there to keep even an adult interested (otherwise I wouldn't read them and neither would my husband!) Check them out for yourself here.

I've also been reading Nicholas Sparks' The Last Song. Fun tidbit that I found out on his website is that he wrote the screenplay for this story first before he wrote the book. The movie was good and the book is pretty good, too. I think it's on the same level as A Walk To Remember (which I loved the book and the movie). My top favorites of Sparks' books are as follows:  Number 1 A Walk To Remember (book and movie), Number 2 The Notebook (the book) and Number 3 The Last Song (book and movie).  I'd have to watch The Notebook movie again to see if it can join ranks with the book.

Oh, and if you haven't signed up for the NWHRWA's Lone Star Conference, I think there's still time. Remember, it's on October 16, 2010. Click here for further information.

Anyway, what's everyone else up to?

Have A Terrific Tuesday!
