Updates: Reading and Writing
Okay, since I hate writers' blogs that are just post after post of "look at my reviews!" I've decided to combine updates on my writing stuff with posts about other things. Ready?:
- An essay I wrote has appeared in Narrative Power: Encounters, Celebrations, Struggles just out from Aqueduct Press.
- Terry Hong at the Smithsonian APA Institute's Book Dragon blog has reviewed Slightly Behind & to the Left.
- And speaking of a certain yellow book, it was long-listed for the Tiptree Award. Not knowing their process, I don't really know what being on the long list means. Anyone?
And in reading, I just disposed of Georgette Heyer's Friday's Child and The Reluctant Widow. Like I said before, I tend to consume Heyer books in threes. I enjoyed Friday's Child a great deal (although I feel like I've read it before ... probably because it's so similar in plot to others of hers) but didn't like The Reluctant Widow at all. The hero and heroine were neither of them attractive, interesting, or likable. So now I have to read a fourth one to finish out my Heyer fix.
