Greetings! Happy Day-After-Labor-Day!
I hope everyone had a relaxing weekend. I spent mine just the way I wanted – surrounded by friends and books. (Which is kind of the same thing.)
Highlights of my long weekend included hanging out with people I love who I haven’t seen in way too long and finishing The Whispering Skull by Jonathan Stroud. I’m way behind on my book reviews, but let me just say I *LOVE* the Lockwood & Co. series. The second book was even better than the first, so I’m psyched that book three, The Hollow Boy, comes out next week! If you’re a fan of funny, sometimes scary, mysterious, action-packed YA, you have to read these books. Oh, and I also baked snickerdoodle cookies for the first time this weekend, but I forgot to take a picture and then everyone ate them, so you’ll just have to take my word for it.
But I digress…
What I REALLY wanted to tell you about is a recent publication and an upcoming poetry reading.
I’m pleased to announce that my short story, “Time Flies,” was published last week in Futures, the sci-fi column in Nature. You can read the story for free online here. Then, if you’re interested, you can read the story behind the story here on the Future Conditional blog.
I’m also pleased to announce that I’ll be reading poetry this Saturday at 1:30 P.M. at the Round Rock Public Library as part of the Poetry Afternoons at the Library series. I’m proud to be reading alongside fellow Austin Poetry Society board member Judith Austin Mills, whose poems I can’t wait to hear. So, if you’re in Round Rock this weekend, come listen to some poetry!
That’s all I’ve got. Everyone have a good week. 🙂
