Audiobooks & Haiku Reviews
So…ti’s been like a whole summer since I’ve posted! Is anyone still out there??? [echo, echo]
The summer has been pretty crazy. My boys’ activities kept us busy, plus I’ve visited the Asheville area twice this summer and been sick for an entire week. Some progress has been made on a few things though. First things first: all my books are now available in audiobook format, professionally narrated, and they all sound great! They are available on Audible.com, Amazon, or ITunes. Let me know what you think of the audiobook images–I’m quite taken with them.

I’ve been making some moderate progress on my novel-in-progress, and I hope to buckle down and finish it once my boys start back to school in TWO WEEKS!! (The countdown has absolutely started!) I have reached the point in the writing where I have a good feel for the characters and their behaviors, so it’s a lot of fun to write. Currently I get about five-ten minute blocks before someone comes to me with a question or complaint. Not good for the concentration, not good at all.
I’ve read some really good books this summer, and rather than do a lengthy review for each of them, I’m trying something new (for me anyways), a review haiku. Just to whet your appetites.
