My last blog post ended up somewhere in cyberspace. I wonder if in an alternate universe there is another me wondering when and how I wrote that post and why I don't remember it.
Anyway, since this is the universe I'm in, I'll give it another shot.
I finished two articles for the website I've been writing for. One will go to an e-zine. I also finished making minor edits to my short story, Macchiato Memoirs, which will be published in Every Day Fiction later this month or next.
On the reading front, I've finished:
Final Truth; the Autobiography of a Serial Killerby Donald Gaskins and Wilton Earle.
Review: This was a chilling, graphic story about a man whom I am glad is dead. I can't say that about a lot of people, but he killed so many and had no intention of stopping. The police never found a body that someone else didn't lead them to. Some of PeeWee Gaskins' final words still linger in my mind, "I'll die knowing that there are others coming along to take my place--and most of them won't never get caught."
Ghosts: Washington's Most Famous Ghost Stories by John Alexander.
Review: This provided a peek into D.C.'s early years. Unfortunately, many of the buildings which were claimed to be haunted have been torn down due to neglect or urban renewal. Still it was interesting enough to read through before making a trip to the capital.
Cross Bones by Kathy Reichs
Review: I think I enjoyed this book more so than others by Kathy Reichs. There was less talk about Tempe's alcoholism and an interesting take on the whole Jesus Family Tomb that was debated so heavily a few years back.
An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
Review: Typically I don't read YA novels or anything about math, but this one caught my eye. It's a fairly typical road trip/coming-of-age with a mathematical twist. I especially enjoyed the math notes at the end. Finally, someone who put functions in language I could understand.
There was another and I can't even remember the title which is not a good sign.
Last but not least, Nathan Bransford had a great link to Identifying Your Novel's Genre which he in turn got from Rachel Gardner.
