Next order of business--

TuesBookTalk...as some of you may know, I've been hosting a book chat every Tuesday night on Twitter for over a year now.  We meet every Tuesday night at 10:30pm ET/9:30pm CT and we chat for about an hour.  I also created a goodreads group for participants to vote on genres, book selections, etc. and for us to keep track of reading schedules.  I'm going to try to announce our monthly reading selection here on my blog as well (hopefully, I don't flake...LOL).  Our next read is What The Night Knows by Dean Koontz.  Discussion will begin this Tuesday, March 15, at 10:30pm ET/9:30pm CT on Twitter.  Hashtag for the chat is #TuesBookTalk or #tuesbooktalk.  Our reading schedule can be found on goodreads HERE and why not join the group while you're there.  I hope you will consider joining us.  It's pretty laid back, but we have a good time. =O)

My name in lights!!!

The incomparable Robert Parry, author of the excellent historical novel, Virgin and the Crab and the recently released The Arrow Chest (watch for my review...coming soon), emailed me last week with the proof for the new back cover of Virgin and the Crab...and guess what?  A blurb from my review along with my name and blog name(s) is on it!!! How totally awesome is that?! Check it out below and be sure to stop by and visit Robert at his blog, Endymion at Night.


That's all for now! Hope you're having a great week. =O)

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

This blog is Award Free. I appreciate your thinking of me for an award, but please know that your comments are my award. Thank you!
