Catching Up...  Reply with quote  

My kid's successfully completed his first year of college, then spent about a month in Russia this summer doing a language immersion course (he took Russian all through his freshman year). He learned a lot about drinking and hash, but earned an A- for the class, which goes toward his BA, so rock on.

I've been blogging, doing blog events (hops and fests, which almost sounds like it's related to beer, but it ain't) (alas). Among them, participated in the Tree of Life: Branching out Collaborative Writing Project - basically, 26 soundtracks to inspire 26 writers to build upon one another's 150-word (roughly) story snippets. Make sense? Yeah, not the way I tell it. The project's ongoing, but my bit (under my pseudonym, Mina Lobo) is done. You can check out the story from the beginning (recommended) here: http://writerlysam.wordpress.com/tree-of-life-branching-out/, if you're so inclined.

And been working on independently publishing my Greek myth-based romance novel, That Fatal Kiss. Hired a copy editor, cover artist, and proofreader (am waiting to get those final edits back), then have some odds and ends to sort out (like, did you know that ISBNs cost, like, $125 a pop, for every version of your book?) (though they're cheaper in bulk) (I'm totally not joking). Have about 20-ish other bloggers joining me in my big "Cover Reveal" on August 19 (they, and I, will post the cover image, along with a book "blurb" - it's a technical term - and a teaser excerpt on our respective blogs, so as to get the word out. I'm at http://www.minalobo.com, if you'd like to visit) and I anticipate releasing the book on/around September 24.

Finally, I've discovered I quite enjoy coconut-flavored foods and drinks. Coconut Delight Oreos, Coconut Daiquiris. Yummeh.

What've y'all been doin'?

And another thing: more and more, I find I need to hit CTL + on every damned Web site I visit, so as to make the bloody text bigger. This aging shit ain't for wimps, tell you what.
