Writing the Elfyverse . . . and beyond

New Review is up at SBR; Chapter Excerpts up for “An Elfy on the Loose”

Folks, Saturday night was pretty eventful.

First, over at Shiny Book Review I reviewed Sharon Lee and Steve Miller’s NECESSITY’S CHILD, the sixteenth book in their long-running Liaden Universe series. I enjoyed this novel immensely; it’s a solid coming-of-age tale that should please readers new to the series as well as people who already salivate at the mere mention of a new Liaden Universe novel.

Next, I found out that the first five chapters of my novel, AN ELFY ON THE LOOSE, are now available via my publisher, Twilight Times Books. So if you’ve ever wanted to know a little more about Bruno the Elfy, much less his Human companion Sarah, now’s the time . . . or in other words, you now can try before you buy. (How about that?)

And if you’re a Wisconsin sports fan, as I am, tonight also was eventful for another reason, as the Wisconsin Badgers defeated the Arizona Wildcats. This means that the Badgers are in the Final Four — that is, they are part of the last four teams taking place in the NCAA Division 1 National Basketball Championship, commonly called the NCAA Tournament for short — and have actually done exactly as I predicted when I made out my bracket in making it this far. (Though I must admit that I had expected some of their opponents to be a bit different; for example, my bracket had Arizona going out in the second round.)

So that’s three interesting things of note. As three can be a theologically significant number for certain religions, maybe that will intensify the positive nature of it all? (I assuredly hope it will, anyway.)
