My long weekend of solid editing didn’t quite go as planned. I did sink uncountable hours into the task and I did get a crick in the neck for my troubles. But I only got half the beast edited. And, as dear hubby pointed out, I’m editing on paper which means I still need to go back and put all my changes into Scrivener.
But, on the plus side, I’ve sorted through my TBR (to be read) pile and have three books coming up that I’m super excited about.
The first, which I’m a quarter through, is Catling’s Bane by D Wallace Peach. I’ve had this in my pile for such a long time and I’m so glad I’m finally reading it. Not only is ‘D’ a wonderful blogger, her worldcrafting is second to none. I’m instantly hooked in this strange, alien world she’s crafted. Full review on Amazon and Goodreads in a few weeks.
My second TBR is a book I’ve only recently picked up, and was not one on my radar, but when I saw what Nicolas Rossis’s Book, Infinite Waters was about, I knew I had to grab it. As I’ve said before, dark fantasy / speculative fiction is my jam, and a whole book of short stories in this genre… why yes, thank you very much! Again, stay tuned for reviews.
My third TBR that I’m so excited for is Aculeo and Amunet by Davide Mana. I’ve been following Davide’s blog for over a year and have been incredibly impressed. Not only are his blog posts thoroughly inetersting (and often left of field), he’s about one of the nicest, most helpful guys you could come across. So I thought it about time to back my friend and check out one of his many published books. This seemed a great place to start as I’ve long been fascinated with Ancient Rome.
So, while not the exact plan I had in mind, it was still not a bad long weekend.
