This one time at Writer's Camp…
Is This Thing On?
So I’ve been too busy to do as many book reviews as I would like to over at Shiny Book Review. So like Professor Xavier, I’ve been recruiting an elite force of like-minded individuals. And recruiting new reviewers leads to… the review I got this morning from a friend of mine. The level of epic that this review is… I can’t even describe it. It’s a thing of beauty. For a first review, it sets a pretty high bar. Go take a look.
I decided that I’m not going to get the next Failsafe story done in time. It’s simple mathematics, really. I have X amount of hours to write, Y amount of writing to accomplish, and Z is in the negative, which leads me to drop a project for the time being. That project, despite the fun I have writing it, is the next Failsafe story. That one is being written on spec, whereas the others are (more or less) contracted. This means that more Tobias Fox stories are coming, and at a faster pace than I thought they would.
I read a very strange trilogy the other day. Not a horrible one, just a strange one. My only complaint? Why is EVERY FREAKING YA STORY TRYING TO MAKE A LOVE TRIANGLE??? Not all readers are love-sick middle aged women, you know. *sigh* Anyways, the books are pretty good and I might be able to review them this week, all in one sort of deal, since the last book came out last week (completely random — I had been given the ARC for book two over a year ago and never got around to reviewing it) and everything is fresh in my mind. Including my (relatively few) gripes (as noted above).
