Writing the Elfyverse . . . and beyond

A Friday Update

leave a comment »

Folks, it’s Friday, and I know I haven’t been a great correspondent this week.  There are reasons for this — most of them have to do with working on my next novel (the sequel to Elfy, which is called An Elfy Abroad — I’ve talked about EA before), not to mention finishing up not one but two edits.

All that said, I should have a book review for y’all tomorrow for Shiny Book Review’s “Romance Saturday” mini-promotion (that is, I review a romance on Saturdays, oft-times, and at least a few people have grown to expect it — a plus).  So look for my review of Suzanne Enoch’s A Lady’s Guide to Improper Behavior tomorrow at SBR.

Other than that, I’ve been reading a number of very interesting books by Sean Williams — I have four of them, starting with The Crooked Letter, which should be reviewed soon — along with E.C. Myers’ very interesting sequel to last year’s Fair Coin, Quantum Coin, a book on contemporary economics by Michael Casey called The Unfair Trade, and if all else fails, I can re-read A Man Rides Through by Stephen R. Donaldson for the umpteenth time (as it’s one of my favorite “comfort books”).

As for a health update, I’m still getting over the sinus infection.  But I felt better today and was able to do more, which was good.

Listening to the Milwaukee Brewers by radio at the moment; the Brewers are losing, 2-0, to the St. Louis Cardinals and are in the third inning.  (There was a lengthy rain delay; the game didn’t start until after 9:00 p.m.)  But even when the Brewers aren’t winning, I enjoy listening to Bob Uecker and his counterpart, Joe Block . . . Uecker’s a legend, and Block seems to enjoy being around him (as did Cory Provus before Block, last year), which makes for a good listening experience all the way around.

The Brewers are making a nice run at the moment and are now only three games below .500 with a record of 67-70.  My hope is that the Brewers will be able to make it to .500 and stay there; if so, that will help to redeem a season that has been full of ups and downs.

There’s not much else going on, but as always, when something happens, I’ll be sure to let you know. 

Now, back to the Brewers game . . . maybe they’ll score a run tonight, who knows?
