Sooooooo….. How’s it goin’ with you?
I know, I know… long time between posts… Sadly, it isn’t really something I can help. I’ve been buried under deadlines and summits and editing and writing, and let’s not forget all the doctor’s appointments that have been necessary as of late. Unfortunately they look like they’re going to continue for a while, but getting healthy is a process once you’ve beat up your body for most of your life. I don’t like it, but it’s necessary.
That’s not to say I haven’t been thinking about posting. Sure, there are probably three posts a day just waiting to be written, and every time I turn on the news something else comes up that I want to rant about (trust me, my blood pressure is probably better off this month if I don’t rant). I have a stack of comic books sitting on my table at home that are waiting for me to read and pontificate on, and once I get my head back out of the books this month, I’ll be able to write like the wind. I hope.
In the mean time, I’ll be hosting a Virtual Book Tour here and at Lyrique Tragedy Reviews for Ruth Rymer’s new novel Susannah, A Lawyer. I’m not generally interested in historical fiction, but when it’s done well it can be a very satisfying read. So far, I’ve been pleased with Susannah, A Lawyer, and I’m anxious to write the review. Ruth has also agreed to answer some interview questions that the book raised for me, and I’ll share those here on October 5th, along with my review. in the meantime, you should go pop over to her site and read an excerpt.
If the universe is kind, you may see a Blackest Night review and maybe those long awaited Marvel Divas & Gotham City Sirens posts I’ve been toying with. I’ve also picked up Justice League: Cry For Justice (Sooo, what do you do when Green Lantern and Green Arrow decide that cleaning up after the bad guys destroy things isn’t working and they start taking the fight to their door? AWESOME) the relaunch of Batgirl (1 and 2), and the wonderful Batman and Robin that comes after Battle for the Cowl (easily the most disturbing villains and circumstances I’ve seen in comics… I’ll tell you why later… trust me). There’s so much to read, y’all, and so much to tell you that I wish I had just one full, uninterrupted day where I could just write it all out. There are things you need to be reading! Wonderful, artful, masterfully written things!
But for now, hold your horses (if you do, in fact, have horses, and if not then don’t get your panties in a bunch…. and if you’re a commando kind of guy/gal, then just …. I don’t know, be patient!) and I’ll be around sooner than you think.
