Books Cubed Ep 30 – YA Fantasy with Jennifer Ellision

Good Adventures,

Yes, I’m still sick. Good God. What is wrong with me?! This time, I think it’s allergies. Still.

This week on the show, I’ve got YA Fantasy author Jennifer Ellision – fierce lady led fantasy – and we’re talking pirates and Chicago. But not pirates in Chicago. Yes, I’m still sick. It’s a great show. I know I always say that but it really is. I had a blast chatting with her. And here’s the links.

Books Cubed: Ep 28 How to Sex Your Snake Chs 1 and 2

Good Adventures,

My dizzies are mostly gone now and I’m writing full time again. To get myself back into June’s mindset, and get the next book in the series finished, I’ve been rereading How to Sex Your Snake. I had planned on reading some for you but I suck at it, so I’m going to defer to Rosie Zwaduk, the audiobook’s narrator and share the first two chapters.

If you’re a baseball fan, and the cubs/marlins game on May is on TV where you are, check out the game. A friend and I will be sitting a few rows up behind home plate. Look for my turquoise hair!

See you next week. Go read a good book!

Books Cubed: Cozy Food Mysteries

Good Adventures!

Still on my cozy kick, I’m chatting with Tyler Davis, one half of the pen name Christine Zane Thomas. Murder, recipes, and running, oh my!

My dizziness is better. Thanks to everyone who’s sent notes. My doctor figured out it was being caused by my new cochlear implant and we’re working on fixing it. I’m feeling better enough to write again, so I’m a happy camper.

3300 miles and I’m still exhausted

 

IMG-4541Love me some Cruise Control

I ran out to Seattle two weeks ago to drive the youngest back to Florida (more school) Too much stuff to ship, and too little stuff to rent a truck. We ended up getting a Dodge Caravan, folding the back seat and one middle seat into the floor, and stuffing the mini van to the gills. 12 hour days took us to Boise, down through Las Vegas, over to Tucson (where we spent half a day, hey Rosie!) Then it was southeast to San Antonio, up to Houston, over to Mobile, across to Florida and straight down the middle, angling east till we hit the Treasure Coast. I think it took 7 days but I slept for about 4 after I got home and I’ve lost track now.

Don’t I know you…

IMG-4543

 

I’d brought my national parks passport book but was just too damn tired to check and
see if there was anything worth stopping to see. Yes, every national park is worth stopping to see, but when you’re on road for 15 or 16 hours a day, you start to get picky. The only non bathroom/food stop I ended up making was the vista above. And hey look who I found. It’s the giant boulder from Indiana Jones! It’s retired now. Check out its cute little pebbles. Wonder if they’ll go into show bizness too.

 

I’m hoping to hang around the house for awhile. Much as I love a good road trip, this one has me covered for a good long time. Drive safe and Write on,

Melissa

Books Cubed: Ep 22 Four Bullets Ch 8

Good Adventures,

Today, I’m reading chapter 8 from my work-in-progress, Four Bullets & a Ghost.

A newbie detective,

If you need to catch up, go back to ep 4 of the podcast for chapter one.

I’m off on a cross country trip and will be posting from the road. Fingers crossed that the plane ride out is smooth so I can get in some reading. I have downloaded a couple of new books that I’m dying to dive in to.

As always, I’m on the lookout for new reads, so if you have any recommendations  and it’s from an indie author, tell me about it in the comments.

Until next time, go read a good book,

Melissa
