Delinquent Blog Tour

And by delinquent, I mean me... I missed a few days telling you what was going on. We've had a record breaking misery sort of winter and I got distracted, but... GREAT stuff going on!

Check out this Review and Giveaway at A Prairie girl reads!

And I love this review from Molly!  (She was very enthusiastic!)

And THIS giveaway at Socrates Book Reviews! [the comments on this one really warmed my heart--seriously]

So it's still going!!!

Tomorrow's stop is at Book Dilettante (man, that's not my favorite word to spell)


And in OTHER News, my buddy Jade posted the most FABULOUS review/recommendation for my A Shot in the Light Serial where she compared it to Stephen King's The Stand (my favorite King work).  I wonder how those lists work... you know what I mean. "If you loved XX, you should read..." Does the first book in the statement have to be current? I saw a ton of those lists for "What to read after 50 Shades of Gray" but I don't see them for old favorites.

Anyway, check out Jade's review!  It made me VERY happy.

Keep in mind that for Amazon Prime members, the first one can be read FREE.


And In Digression News (since it is what we delinquents do)...

I have a couple things I am VERY excited about.

FRIDAY the Veronica Mars Movie comes out... I LOVE this series--mostly from the perspective of a writer. I love the BIG mystery over each season and the little mystery each episode. And I REALLY REALLY love the relationships in this show. I think my VERY favorite relationship is the friendship (friends in low places) between Veronica and Weevil--she is after the truth. He gets blamed for a lot. So she gets him out of trouble more than once and it forms an odd, not always stable, but they have each other's backs sort of friendship. Even what goes on, though, with colleagues/competitors of her dad--brilliantly done.

And then we are just over 3 weeks from the next season of Game of Thrones. This is my current obsession, books AND show. The books have a lot more depth, which I prefer, but they are doing a solid enough job hitting it with the show that I can't help but love that, too. And they've really nailed some of the critical characters.

Oh, Joffrey... don't you just want to smack him?

Congrats on the awesome Jade review.! I've never gotten into the Veronica Mars series, but it's amazing that this got started on Kickstarter. It opens possibilities.
