the morning after the day before

Apologies for being absent last week, I try to post at least once a week, more if there is news, but last week left me awash in Christmas. It was fun, but I'm glad life is returning to a slower pace--well, as slow as it ever gets for me.

Cool things that happened last week:

  • A couple of us were discussing reviews on Twitter and I mentioned my bad review for Miserere, which cautioned that Miserere is not for the average reader. went over and read the review, then said that since he did not consider himself to be an average reader, he would give Miserere a go. My Merry Christmas tweet was this from @mundanename:

"MISERERE by , dark fantasy at it's best. Mythology sucked me in and the characterization held me. Perfect for your new ereader."

He calls himself @mundanename, I call him the spinmaster. If you consider yourself an above average reader, you might want to give Miserere a try.

  • The award for Best Christmas Gift goes to my husband for my new overnight luggage, which will be greatly needed this year. I am scheduled to be a guest at StellarCon March 2-4, 2012 and I will be a first-time panelist at ConCarolinas June 1-3, 2012. I am greatly looking forward to both events and I will post more detailed information as we get closer to the events.

That's it for me! What about you? Did you have a lovely holiday with cool news and/or gifts? Share them in the comments if you like.
