Hi! I’m from the Canada group, just popping by to let you know that we are trying to drum up interest in doing a group read. We have a thread started for anyone who is interested to let us know they are interested. Once we know there will be a few people, we’ll then decide on a book (Canadian author, of course!). Hope you decide to join us!
Don't forget to sign up to pick one of this month's authors over at Author, Author. Check out who we're reading this month, and help us pick for next month. Just find the discussion titled "Sign up to choose February's author" and put your name in the hat by tomorrow (Saturday) evening.
Hi gnomeyg! I'm from the Author Author group and just wanted to welcome you to our group. March's "featured" author is Margaret Atwood, and we have two "secondary" authors, Guy Gavriel Kay and Charles de Lint. If you're interested, you can choose a book written by one of these three authors, and after you've read it, please come post a review and star rating so the rest of us in the group know what you read and whether you liked it or not. Happy Reading!
You joined us on a good month, since we are doing Canadian authors as our theme. I see you're from Ontario. I'll just do a little plug for the other group I co-admin, just in case you're interested. :-) It's the "Canada" group. Take a look - you can get there from my page if you want to see what it's all about.
I'm enough out of the loop that you never have to worry about me seeing a movie/TV version of ANYTHING within the first 5-10 years of release. Of course, I'm also just enough out the loop to have not known when Chris Moore's LA dates were (ah well...at least I have the signed special edition of Lamb, good nuff fer me). I had received Fool when I was in the middle of Neverwhere and was just about to ditch Gaiman for Moore, but thought better of it. Instead, I'm about to enjoy a Gaiman/Moore sandwich...oh...wait...so not right! :D
Hi. Yes those were the good old times. Some of them I haven't read like in the late 90s. It's hard to say on my favorite.
As for writing, I hit the 50 K mark for JulNano's finish line and have 10 days left of July to keep on going before I hit August. I'm aiming for 85-90 K (maybe 100 K, depending where I am on the storyline) and hope to finish in Mid-August. As for my old Nano ms, I'm at 144 K with 18 K cut and 52 K more to go. Still a long way to go. As for my pre-Nano mss, I haven't been back to them in awhile and hope to this week. I used to have mentors but they'd quit on me in the past. So I'm alone and do have some writing forums/egroups for support. I can't afford to pay for an editing service yet. Good luck and keep me posted-I'll do the same.
Hey ... I just finished Beth Cooper. It's super hilarious. I give the story a 2.5 and the humor a 5. So, for me, that made it worth reading. Basically, it's like an 80's Brat Pack movie in book form. A lot good about it, some not so good.
I did meet him at a signing for Chins. He spoke to the group for well over a half hour before he signed everyone's book. It was a very fun evening. I still love the Evil dead movies, and pretty much only watch Xena when he is on. I haven't watched Burn Notice yet, but I hear its good.
