Working and stuff

There is a lot happening here on the business and home front. Been working on the second book for Tor. Have the plot laid out, but the romance is giving me fits. Hope to have it straightened out soon, so that I can dive into Fast Draft mode.

We spent the weekend looking at houses. Found some good ones. No idea what, if anything, will become of our finds.

It seems like everything is up in the air right now. My girlfriend, Catherine says it has to do with what is happening astrologically. Not sure what is causing the turbulence, but I’m ready for it to end. (wg)

Don’t have any big plans this week now that I’ve seen the lunar eclipse. Work, working out, etc. I do know that my friend, Vivi is celebrating her birthday today and the arrival of her latest book. Also, Sydney Croft’s book has officially been released. I foresee much spending this weekend. What books do you plan to pick up?

  1. No book shopping for me as my TBR pile is growing and has sprung to life. I just finished “Case Histories” by Kate Atkinson. Good luck on the home hunting. I would think this would be a wonderful time to buy a home…buyer’s market and all.:)

  2. Laura, Yeah, cough, my TBR pile now has its own zip code. *ggg* You’re right about it being a buyer’s market. Hopefully that will work in our favor. 🙂

  3. I will be picking up Tiffany Trent’s IN THE SERPENT’S COILS. Yes, I read it already, but *giggle* I have that possessive ownership dealie where I want to hold an actual hardcopy of it in my hands. P.S. Thanks again for reading my pile ‘o crap! 🙂 Will be shipping off to the editor Thursday. Wish me luck!

  4. Jeaniene, Good luck, and it’s far from a pile of crap. It had me turning pages so fast that I’m lucky I didn’t get a papercut. *wg* I have the same possessive nature. It won’t be long before another certain someone’s book is released. I think it’s called Halfway to the Grave or something like that. 😉

  5. Bernard Cornwell’s Sword Song, book 4 in the Saxon series, Stephen Lawhead’s Scarlett (a Robin Hood retelling in three books, this is book 2), Colleen McCullough’s Anthony and Cleopatra, and Rebecca Gable’s Das Spiel der Knige. All freaking expensive hardcover or trade paperback. *sigh*

  6. Argh, I always forget your blog eats umlauts. 🙁

    it’s Koenige

  7. Gabriele, A lot of the books that I want are trade or hardback. Hate that.

  8. Gabriele, LOL, no worries. 😉

  9. Astrology has been boiled down for me in simple terms. I’m a Taurus, and a cement head. It fits, so I seldom have a retort worthy of mention. 🙂 I wish you well on the house hunt. Moving is the number one most stressful endeavor of all time. We are all homing pigeons, and it takes a lot to get us away from familiar territory.

  10. Bernard, I hear you about familiar territory. I do bad with any kind of change, even the stuff that’s good for me. It’s like I’m stuck in amber. *ggg*

  11. Good luck house hunting babes!

  12. Thank you, Amie. 🙂

  13. Oh, it’s fun to look at houses? Don’t suppose you found any with ghosts…

    Sept. books, um, I stopped at Dear Author and collected a few recs I must have. And Sydney Croft’s book is out, which I need in print (I have an ARC but it’s not the same). And so on. And I still haven’t bought Julia Templeton’s new book. Yep. Mount TBR is going to grow.

  14. Charli, The ones I’m looking at are new, so unless they’re built on a burial ground, I think I’ll be okay. 😉
