I'm currently reading Sharp Objects..... Creepy mystery. (You're never on here.)
Also auditioning for local play... I'll let you know how it goes.
I took acting lessons and dabbled in the arts in high school. We went and saw "A Christmas Story" on Friday and decided, "I'm gonna do that."
Auditions aren't till Jan. We'll see... I really always wanted to be a Hollywood make-up artist.

Eclectic Book Club Peeps:
All righty, let's have those nominations for our next big read. What's everyone in the mood for?
Post your selections in the "Genres" thread and we'll hash it out. If that takes too much energy, I will put all genres nominated in a hat and pick one at random!
Dear Red: My debut novel, HUNTING THE KING, just hit the bookshelves last week. As a writer, you'll appreciate all the work that goes on after publication. I had no clue. I came into this very naive. I feel like I've taken on a third job. Hopefully, all the work will pay off, though. Here are the details on the book. I hope you'll read on. And watch the YouTube video. Anyone who watches it, buys the book.
HUNTING THE KING is a fast-paced page-turner that follows archaeologist Molly O'Dwyer into war torn Iraq in search of the remains of Jesus. ForeWord Magazine says: "Fans of intellectual thrillers and historical fiction will find a worthy new voice in Clenott. His best invention may be Molly O’Dwyer, a genuinely likable heroine who more than holds her own in a man’s world. An ambitious scientist, she is also an observant Catholic whose heart and mind don’t always agree. Given such an auspicious start, the sequel can't come too soon." Molly is an in-your-face woman with a mysterious past who is about to go on the adventure of a lifetime.
As I said, to get a good sense of how exciting the novel is check out the heart-pounding trailer for the book at http://www.kunati.books/hunting-the-king-peter-clenott/. Or you can view it on YouTube or my web site at http://www.peterclenott.com.
The sequel, TRACES OF A LIFE, has already been completed, as well, the first two books in a series with Molly O’Dwyer. In TRACES, Molly begins uncovering her own past while digging on an island in Boston harbor. Murder and cover-up and a mysterious past that many people, even those closest to her, don’t want revealed.
If you have the chance, please let me know what you think. Thanks.
I have a favour to ask, I have noticed that you read the book Butterfly by Kathryn Harvey. I also have read the book and love it. My only problem is that I had bought a copy at a book sale and it happens to be missing a page. Do you own a copy of this book? If so, would you be able to provide me with the missing page? I have looked everywhere and no one seems to have this book. Thanks.
Everywhere you turn there's a vampire novel. Harlequin has one line of vampire romance novels that I tried and hated. Then there are all those new, hip gay vampire novels and gay vampire short stories. I feel they're overdone and need to be put to rest for while. It won't be until then that something innovative will be done with them. This is just my opinion, though.
