Had a chance to do a fair amount of reading while on holiday in New Zealand. On those ferry rides, not to mention the 12 hour plane flights. Tried out 3 new authors from Amazon’s Top 100 Free list–see my earlier blog on the subject. I’ll blog more on this soon, but as a preview: one was awful and I never made it to Chapter 2; one was readable but no more and hence will remain nameless; and the third, which I have not yet finished, Clovenhoof, by H Goody and I Grant, is thoroughly excellent. More soon.
I also got a chance to preview the first few chapters of a work-in-progress novel from a fellow author that has the potential to be a best seller. Not my place to say more, but when you see a novel about “Honey” on Oprah in a few years, remember you heard it here first.
Finally I read The Impeachment of Abraham Lincoln by Stephen Carter, who is rapidly becoming one of my favorite authors. Good read in general; terrific read for Civil War buffs like me.
This weekend I’ll get back to writing.
