Hosting an image, la la...

Nothing to see here, hosting an image (which is under Creative Commons license and will be used appropriately on another blog, and if I'm reading everything correctly was created by Brandon Daniel, UserID bdu on flickr).

Hosting an image, la la la...

Nothing to see here, just hosting a picture I took so I can use it elsewhere...

Nothing to see here...

Nothing to see here, just needing to get an image up and online so I can link to it elsewhere, on a blog where I can't upload the images themselves, but only link to them.


Nothing to see here at all. Moving right along....

I sold a book!

I sold one of my historical romance manuscripts! I've decided to publish under a pen name, so you can read all about my upcoming book (release date still TBD) at my "Susanna Fraser" blog:

Of Wimseys and Wellesleys: No Title For You!

Post moved to Susanna Fraser blog.

Books from the last three weeks or so

I've been letting this blog grow cobwebs of late, being simultaneously occupied with Easter, my daughter's sixth birthday, buying a house, and a case of bronchitis. The house is going to keep me occupied indefinitely, but Easter and the birthday are over and my lungs are on the mend.

Anyway, I figure it's high time I caught up my book blogging, at least.

A Cartoon History of the Universe, Vol. I (Larry Gonick, 1997) is an irreverent yet well-researched account of our history from the Big Bang up to Alexander the Great. And I should really go put Book 2 on hold...

I've now read All Mortal Flesh (2006) and I Shall Not Want (2008), so I'm fully caught up on Julia Spencer-Fleming's Clare Fergusson/Russ Van Alstyne mysteries...just in time to learn that the next book, One Was a Soldier, has been delayed and won't be out to 2011! Woe!

I love this series, I really do. Wonderful characters, brilliant writing, perfect combination of humor and angst. I don't want to give away spoilers, since these should be read in order, but suffice it to say there's more motion in the "soap opera" part of the plot than in previous installments. After reading All Mortal Flesh on Easter afternoon, I was so eager to find out what happened next that I couldn't wait the few days for the library to deliver I Shall Not Want, so I bought it for my Kindle and stayed up till 1:00 AM Thursday finishing it despite the whole bronchitis thing.

Blogroll Updated

Of Wimseys and Wellesleys is taking a week off. I'm now on my fifth day of the Worst Cold Ever, and I find myself lacking the energy to contemplate common fictional errors in 19th century British inheritance law. It'll be back next week, or perhaps the week after, since next Sunday is Easter. If I can just get my voice back by then I'll have a full day of choir, following which my husband will cook me a delicious dinner prominently featuring pork (preferably in the form of a ham).

I did, however, update my blogroll today. Please check out the new additions, especially soon-to-be-published historical mystery author Gary Corby's A Dead Man Fell from the Sky, my cousin-in-law Mary's adventures as a children's librarian, and the always amusing Unhappy Hipsters.
