They are things that have calmed my nerves when my Inner Critic broke free from that darned backroom I keep locking her in. I swear she has some kind of master key that she uses to get out of that thing all the time.
Besides writing, I adore reading. I haven't had the time to indulge like I want. Self-publishing, understandably, takes a great deal of time if I want to provide readers with a quality product and marketing the novel is a must if I want more than 5 eBooks sold when NEVERLOVE releases on October 8th :-)
But I love reading.
So I squeezed in The Flying Dragon and Mea Culpa to feed the reader in me so she doesn't feel I've completely abandoned her.
The Flying Dragon by Natalie Dias Lorenzi - Middle grade must read. My hugs and thanks to Natalie at Literary Rambles for introducing me to this book.
Mea Culpa by Christine Fonseca - YA Gothic must read (novella)
I'm currently devouring - erm - reading Mistress of the Stone. Maria Zannini has me pondering the life of a pirate. I've seen them in movies and shows but the life at sea is not an easy one. Her depictions are beautifully written. Then again, it's Maria, so I'm not surprised :-)
My TBR list is ever-swelling with titles I hope to munch on soon - um - read, sorry. What are some titles on your TBR? Have you added NEVERLOVE to your Goodreads list? How about GIVIN' UP THE GHOST? A Practical Arrangement is available for a little historical romance or perhaps one of the novels/stories I mentioned above?
