Sunday Post – 11/09/14

November 9, 2014 Sunday Post 20

The Sunday Post is hosted by the wonderful Kimba, the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news, recap the past week, take a look ahead, and showcase our new treasures – I mean books!

My Week

It’s been a very busy two weeks, mostly because of my indexing projects. The good news is that two of the three are done and turned in (and both authors liked them, which is always gratifying!) I’ve also spent some time planning our holidays; we’ll be visiting family, so I’ve been figuring out dates and who gets us when.

The bad news is that I’m way behind on NaNoWriMo, so I’m making a new commitment to it now – not in any expectation of “winning” (reaching 50,000 words), but committing to spending at least some time writing every day for the rest of the month. Because of that, posting on the blog will be a little sparse, and I’m suspending the News & Notes feature for the rest of November. It’s fun, but it’s time-consuming.

    The Secret Diaries of Miranda Cheever! I’m way in the minority here but it’s one of my favorite Quinns. I got Whose Body as well and I’m pretty sure that’s your fault! I’ve read it before and if I remember right it was one of my favorite Sayers. You’ve got some great reviews coming up. Look forward to seeing what you think of If the Shoe Kills. I just started it. Have a great week!

    NaNoWriMo is everywhere! I had no idea how many people participate in it. I have a friend who wants to be a writer too. I told him about this event but I don’t think he participated. Good luck.

      I loved the third Nora Roberts, which I’ve read but not yet reviewed. I’ve read one of her other trilogies – a non-paranormal series set in Ireland about three sisters (two from Ireland, one half-sister from America); can’t remember the titles right now but I really liked them. And I’ve read some of the standalones, mostly romantic suspense. She’s versatile!

    I already have The Collector and the first in the Cousins Dwyer series, but yet to read. Many of your books look like comfort reads to me, and I mean that in a good way ๐Ÿ™‚ The kind you would snuggle up on a couch on a cool evening with–enjoy them!

    I do hope you get enough time to work on your NaNoWriMo. You have so much on your plate already. I really wanted to join because I love to write, but I couldn’t come up with a plot that I would want to work on, sigh… Have a good week.

      I’m all about the comfort reads at this time of year! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you so much for your encouragement re NaNoWriMo. It means a lot!

    Good luck with Nano!I’m a little behind now too after getting off to a good start- I had some of the story in my head and that went down on paper easy, but now I have to figure out where I go next.I keep telling myself just keep writing! ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope it goes well for you the rest of the way!

      That’s part of my problem. I have to keep reminding myself to just sit down and start writing anyway – but I literally haven’t had much time. Good luck to you with your NaNo novel!
