First off, I'd like to apologize for being late on all of my comments and unhelpful and for the short post. I've been moving for the past two days, and things are a bit...hectic at the moment. No one is really settled and everyone is agitated and I've been pretty much useless in doing anything. So I apologize again for acting like I'm ignoring all of you.
Second, I have a question to ask you, my awesome friends and readers. What're you looking to read at the moment? What've you been craving lately? A mystery? A thriller? A quiet romance? Anything that deviates from your general preferences?
There is a purpose to these questions, I swear. All will be revealed with time.
I've currently been reading nonfiction, which is weird for me because I love fiction. It's called Before The Pyramids, and it's all about ancient astronomers and how the henges in Thornborough are highly sophisticated astronomical tools that align perfectly with Orion's Belt and point toward another henge that represents Sirius. It sounds a bit hooky, but it's well-written and the evidence they present is fairly strong, if unorthodox. I'm not that far into it at the moment, but once things are settled, I hope to get back into it. I'm really enjoying it.
I've also been writing my untitled WIP, and I hope to give you all a sneak peak of it very soon. Hopefully it'll be something you'll like to read on a rainy, gray day of summer. Or winter. Or any day, hopefully. And be tough on me when you read it. I need a good critiquing so I can be at my best. And I want to start practicing my query letter too, so I'll be asking for your help on that as well. I know I'm nowhere near that stage of the process yet, but you can never start too early, and it'll be good for me to start getting used to the art of querying so I'm not a newbie making newbie mistakes later on.
Finally, I just want to remind you that Michelle Fayard of Bird's-eye View is dropping by on the 23rd to talk about her journey writing her novel, and I hope you'll enjoy her interview. I know I did!
