Recommendations from November 2021

I very rarely reread books. I just have too many things in my TBR pile. But every once in a while, I do reread something. But it has to be an absolute favorite.

The Blue Girl by Charles de Lint is one of those rare books I have gone back to reread. It was even better than it was the first time. I LOVE THIS BOOK. The Blue Girl, to me, is a darn near perfect novel.

Pulphouse is a magazine, but I have been reading more short stories lately (gee, I wonder why?) A couple of the stories in this issue had me laughing so hard that once I cried, and once I almost fell off the bed. Good stuff in this issue.

Meet me in the Moon Room is a collection of short stories by Ray Vukcevich. This dude is off the wall, but I love his stuff! I haven’t yet finished the book, but OMGosh, it is crazy good so far.

The mess of desk

I’ve had a few people ask to see my writing set up. This is after a recent move of all of my office stuff into the bedroom. We had my parents visiting, so my office got moved. It was supposed to be temporary, but I am kind of liking having everything in one place. The computer on the left is my writing computer, the computer on the right is my gaming computer. (You can barely see the screen because it’s black on black, but it’s there.)

Notice the TBR pile next to the bed has become a tower. LOL

And YES, I love my whiteboard calendar that is above my writing computer!!! It is a lifesaver when it comes to creating a publishing schedule.

Author Get-Together

A friend of mine recently published a book on service dog training. She is the wonderful lady who helped me to train Amos. We were able to see one another for the first time in a very long time and we signed books for one another. It was wonderful to see her and we had a blast!

Amos was thrilled to see her. Look how happy he is!
Signing books for one another.

If you have a dog (it doesn’t even have to be a service dog, she has instructions on basic obedience) this is a priceless book filled with very useful training information.
