On my bookshelf #1

I need to apologise for last week because work got the better of me and I didn't get any blog posts out. I feel terrible about it.

Right now I'm running a series of two concurrent workshops over two weeks and we've just gotten through one week of it. Originally, I was meant to facilitate both of them and I was wracking my brain trying to figure out how to be in two places at one time. Fortunately, at the eleventh hour, we hired a new guy and I put him on an airplane out to the project immediately. Poor guy, his first day was the kick-off for the first set of workshops. He was really thrown into the deep end, but he's doing great.

So there's been very little reading for me and no blog posts. I'm so sorry. I do try to keep the blog posts as consistent as I can, and because I intend to get back into full on blogging and reading once this danged project is over, I am trying to keep things on the blog going. It's not always easy. This job is very demanding.

For something a little different, I thought I'd share with you what is on my bookshelf to read right now. I don't know if I'd get to all of them, but these are things that I am planning on reading soon.

Guess what? There's another Pets in Space anthology coming out, once again donating proceeds to It's a very worthy cause and I'm delighted to have Anna Hackett visit with us at the bloggity to tell her about her pet in space.

Please give Anna a very warm welcome.

Pets in Space 3 Anna Hackett

The gladiators of Carthago are all big, tough, and well-trained to fight in the arena. The gladiators of the House of Galen all fight for honor and freedom, and behind the scenes, are always ready to protect the less fortunate (including some abducted women from Earth). It makes sense that these gladiators would have equally as tough, heroic, and ferocious pets. Think wild hunting cats, dangerous canines, or fierce, flying beasts.

What Deanna Read #32: September 2018

First of all, my apologies for the lack of a post earlier this week. It's been crazy busy at work and I had a bunch of manuscripts I had to power-read over the weekend to provide feedback on. I think I cranked out reading almost 200,000 words over the weekend. I needed a weekend to recover from my weekend. But man, the books were good. I think you are going to love them when they get released.

On the reading front, I didn't too badly. I thought I'd have done more but this is not bad. I'm on par with

Here's what I read for the month.
