Loved it! So excited for more from this debut author!
I got this book (galley) free from one of the signings at RWA2018 National Conference because the line was short and it was sci-fi romance, notoriously difficult to find. I had never heard of the author or the book before that. But hey, free, right?
When I got back to my room and read the back cover copy (bits of Jupiter Rising and Riddick with lots of new/original stuff), I was excited about it, and it was the first book I read of the 26 I brought home from the conference. Well done! Love the core story, love the tropes, love the worldbuilding, love the character development. There were a couple of “mistakes” because, hey, galley, and a couple of tiny nits I found about info sharing, but they didn’t detract from the story at all.
When I say I loved it, I mean that. I will keep it. I will read it again. I will look for it in its finished form. I will look for more from this author. So glad to have found this book!
Oh man! I’m so excited. Someone once said “I hope you get to unplug this summer,” and that’s what I feel I’m going to be doing at the RWA national conference I’m leaving for in (gasp) 15 days.
I’ll be unplugging from my daily life (even though, hey, I’ll still be there, and it’ll still be daily). The odd thing is that I’ll also be plugging IN to all the knowledge and excitement other authors will be sharing, I’ll be getting together with writing friends I haven’t seen for ages, I’ll be plugging my brain in so it can soak up all the yummy authorial goodness on offer.
I ordered new business cards to reflect the fact that I have a new website, then I made a couple of little updates to the website. I’ve made a few strategic wardrobe purchases, scanned the workshop listings to see what I might be interested in, and made sure my Cheeky Tarts (writing friends) dinner is on my schedule.
Greetings all! I’m very excited to be heading out to the 2016 RWA National Conference in San Diego this week with my friend and writing partner Deb. I haven’t done any traveling for a while, so we’re planning to walk, shop, and eat for a couple of days before the conference starts. T-shirts for everyone in the family are on the shopping list!
I’ve been to business conferences before, but there’s something special about a writing conference, especially one where the people are so passionate (pun unavoidable!) about their work. I’m looking forward to listening to great advice from authors I’ve read, authors I’ve never heard of, and complete strangers in the elevator or goody-room line. If previous experience holds up, my brain-sponge will be full to overflowing by the end of it all. Can’t wait!
Check back…I might even be able to figure out how to post a few pictures from my phone 🙂
