Book launch for The Wolves of Dynamo by Gareth S. Young

This is Gareth.

As y’all know, I’ve been sick, and my illness(es) mean that I’m chronically fatigued and can’t focus on much. Even on books. Which sucks, since I’ve always been a huge reader, and not being able to read is quite the … {insert bad word of your choice}. So my pal Gareth S. Young sent me an ARC of his book, The Wolves of Dynamo, a few weeks back. An electronic document. This is important for you to know for a couple reasons: 1) although I have a Kindle, I pretty much just use it for playing games and 2) I have innumerable books for Kindle that I haven’t read. Which leads to: 3) I uploaded the book to my Kindle, and idly started reading it, … Continue reading

C is for…

C

Obviously I’m late for my entry for today’s #AtoZchallenge2014… (and it’s only Day 3!). I meant to work on it last night, but was too tired. Plus I didn’t have a topic. Then I didn’t have time today before I left for school, and when I got home I essentially fell over into a coma, waking only when hubby roused me for dinner. Suggestions for topics from my friend Guster include:  “carnivorous… coniferous… cellophane… cello… cha-chas… crack… cucumber… collarbone… cummerbund… catch a falling star… comic books (my c)… bad words beginning with c…lol… can of soup… conviviality… contentious… construction sites for burying the bodies… collider as in Large Hadron… cats… clapping one’s hands… chicken… cork…” All of which are great words, but other than cat, I … Continue reading
