Coworker Novels

February 4, 2009

I have a coworker who is writing a science fiction novel, and he has finished his first or second round of edits and passed along his novel to readers.  I volunteered to be one of his readers, and I am ridiculously honored to be one.  I’ve never known anyone who wrote an actual novel before, so I look upon the draft sitting in my house with a great deal of awe.  I know he’s a tad concerned because I’m not a huge science fiction reader, but as I told him, I’ll read anything, so hopefully my input will help him. I truly a honored.

Jane Austen and Zombies

February 4, 2009

I am so far behind on everything that I wonder if I will ever catch up. Part of the problem, dear reader, is that I am expecting a baby in June 2009.  The baby is not the problem.  Far from it!  The problem is the preparation.  My husband has decided to replace the carpet in our bedrooms with hardwoods, and it’s gone a bit slower than we expected.  At the same time, work has become interesting due to a promotion to management for me!!!  Yay!   I’ve been reading, but I’m just so far behind in posting.

Anyhooo…I must post about Pride, Prejudice and Zombies.  What a hysterical concept!  Oh, this is the original zombie link.  It amuses me because I still have World War Z in mind, and combine that (zombies) with Pride & Prejudice just tickles my funny bone.  Enjoy!
