Hello again! It has been an insane week, guys. Although, I feel like I say that a lot, but life really is just getting crazier and crazier.
Cha-Ching- The Thing is Really Happening!
Perhaps the thing that blew my mind the most this week was that my very first paycheck as a writer arrived at my house. I took a picture and everything (although I am not posting it because that would make me an internet idiot). I also got a letter from Neoglyphics Entertainment saying that the Anthology is really close to being ready for publication.
As has been the case, you can preorder the book on Amazon. The description on Amazon says it will be released on June 1st and I actually believe them this time. If you are interested, here is the link again: Neoverse December 2015 Anthology.
In the writing realm, I have been working on a book and finally finished the rough draft this week (more to come about this later, hopefully). I am trying to revise it in order to get it to my amazing friend who reads everything I write to make sure I don’t do something stupid. Thanks Amanda! So, who knows? Maybe more things will happen.
In Other News…
This past week marked a month until school gets out for my girls. Where did all the time go? Am I the only person who feels like they blink and suddenly five months have passed? My current Kindergartener and 3rd Grader are going to be in 1st and 4th grade!
My house is not suffering because of my obsessive need to write now. It actually looks pretty good ALL the time now (I make the bed every morning, guys- what is wrong with me?). I make no promises to maintain this level of clean, but it makes me feel good to be able to keep it looking nice. I really do love my house and it does deserve to be treated well.
Game of Thrones!
I really enjoy the books, but right now I am talking about the TV show that I can’t watch until it comes out on DVD because I don’t have HBO. However, I do read the internet and I just have to say, (Spoilers) I am so happy- we all expected this, right?- to hear that Jon Snow has risen from the dead. I am totally looking forward to him uniting the Wildlings and kicking some White Walker/Other butt. Now, I am just waiting for “Winds of Winter” to come out. I don’t feel like I can watch Season 6 until I do. (Yes, I am one of those people who have to read the book before the movie/TV show).
Book Review- Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison
I found another winner, guys. This book still has my mind reeling and I feel like I need to tell the world about it…or at least my corner of the world on this tiny space on the internet. This is a heavy book again (why are the best books so darn heavy?), but you have the time you should definitely read it.
It is about a man in the South (I am guessing in the 30’s, maybe 40’s) who is sent up to New York after he does something to earn himself being expelled from the college he is attending. The crazy part is that they don’t tell him he can’t come back! They just let him go. His adventures in New York cause him to have a crisis of identity and realize some pretty mind blowing things. I won’t say more about it than that, but if you haven’t read it, you need to read it before you die. It is good, powerful stuff.
I think that’s everything for now! Hope everybody has an awesome week! Happy reading everyone!
