books aren’t just what we do, they’re who we are

Recent Reads and a Recap

Oh my god, guys, it’s December already! How did that happen??? I spent the long, lovely holiday weekend getting caught up on some tv, reading Jennifer Weiner’s Certain Girls, playing video games, and sleeping. Good times, all. Rexroth kept me company most of the time, although his choice for reading was Let The Right One In, which has been praised the length and breadth of the internet — both the book and the movie.
And now, it’s December. I’ve got two more submissions to get out and hope for responses from editors before the end of the year, not to mention other outstanding submissions to follow up on. I’ve also got to get to work on my business holiday cards, and some crafty goodness for friends, clients, and family. And I’ve got links to share! Like these newspaper articles recommending Let It Snow and Maureen Johnson. And this feature on Ellen Booraem from Cynthia Leitich Smith’s blog. And Trish Doller‘s advice for local authors on approaching a local bookstore.
What are your plans for the month ahead? Will you be revising your NaNoWriMo novel? Starting something new? Letting your current WiP rest in a drawer while you concentrate on holiday stuff? Fill me in!
