We're supposed to have torrential rain and storms tonight, leading into a cold wet weekend. It must be Spring Break for the university.

I started reading a new mystery series that looked really promising, set in regency England, with a cozy theme about cooking and the first uses of chocolate in a solid form (as opposed to a drink, which had been common for quite a while). I liked the first few chapters so much I went and bought the second one. Then the cozy theme got dropped and it's missing the sort of multiple character interactions you expect from a regency. I think I'll go back to reading fantasy.

I think I've finally started writing a new book. Very tentatively, so I don't want to scare it off. After a few days of barely being able to string two words together, it's a relief.

Neat review of The Cloud Roads on YA Anonymous Martha Wells, you had me at disemboweling claw.

YouTube L'Odyssée de Cartier This is a commercial, but it's an awesome fantasy commercial, aimed at people who like big cats and dragons. You just have to see it to believe it. Work safe.

This was just neat: A Bird's Nest Bed

N.K. Jemisin posted this on Twitter: Hello Ello: Why The Pretty White Girl YA Book Cover Trend Needs to End Recently, there has been more Asians on TV than usual. This makes me happy because it is such a rare event. Spotting an Asian on TV always feels like trying to find Waldo. And when I do spot an Asian on TV or in the movies, I jump up and down and get overly excited, like I've spotted some rare species or mythical creature, like a unicorn, or Big Foot.

I really liked that commercial. Especially the dragon ;o)

The dragon was excellent, and I loved the segue to the giant elephant.

I hope you guys get the torrential rain! You've definitely got a backlog of dry weather to balance out.

The recent reviews have been so great! Also great: writing! \o/

My favorite part of that commercial is the reveal of the elephant. Breathtaking.

I hope so, too. This was about when it stopped raining last year, so Spring just didn't happen.

Thanks! The sales still suck, but at least the reviews have been good. :)

I think I like the elephant best, too. It's so unexpected.

I think I've finally started writing a new book. Very tentatively, so I don't want to scare it off. After a few days of barely being able to string two words together, it's a relief.

Yay!

I re-read Wheel of the Infinite every few years. Love that book, so much. Your others are, alas, in the storage locker along with 2/3 of my books, so I ended up buying City of Bones for Kindle a couple of days ago, for a re-read.
