May's READ THIS! Q&A Deets and More!

Happy Mid-May!

May is an interesting month in that there's a lot going on, but that "lot" doesn't affect everyone, particularly in the second half of the month. You may be looking forward to school being over, graduation, Memorial Day celebrations, or just noting a weather change.

Here at the Manse we "celebrated" by having a lovely tree that was killed before its time (darn you unexpected frosts) removed and a new one put into its place. The great circle of plant life -- that we are still not quite used to, because most of the plants out here are not the plants we grew up with.

The tree is near the house, and I mentioned that I wanted it removed ASAP because it was a terrible fire hazard. The man from the nursery looked at me and said, "Even if you hadn't told me you were from the Southwest, I'd know because of that statement. There is NO risk of fire hazard here." To which I replied, "Oh. Um, yeah. It rains all the time, doesn't it? All. The. Time." But I still love my new little tree and hope it has an even longer life than its predecessor.

But enough about the secret life of trees, because the next READ THIS! Author Q&A is just a few days away, and it promises to be another good one! So 
let's get right to it, shall we? We shall!

The Swans of War
Catherine Kane

Gini's Take: The fate of the world is at stake. And, oh yeah, there's a princess and a brave knight who are also in a lot of terrible danger. Fortunately, a woman still new to magick and her wiseacre cat are around to (hopefully) save the day. Another fun Morgan and Sam adventure.

Mind of the Man-Child
The Lost Children of Earth, Book 1
By G. Russell Gaynor


Because I get asked this daily (often multiple times daily)...

Yes, Aliens Like Us IS coming, but...

No, Aliens Like Us still isn't ready for Prime Time, but...

I'm on Version 5 of the rewrite process. Does every book take me this long? No. Will all the others in the series take this long? Likely no. Life has tossed a lot at me and mine and that's made some things a struggle, but...

Kitty is always with me, and she's not going to let the bad things win, in any universe.

So...Watch this space for more updates as I have them. And keep those digits crossed for the hope that my shouting "the end!" comes sooner as opposed to later.

P.S. I am definitely heading towards the end game. I realize that's vague, but it means that I think we'll be shouting "hurrah" somewhere in the nearish term. Digits crossed, at any rate...

P.P.S. Watch this space, I'm hoping to share happy news soon.
So many bookie wookies, so much time to catch up on all of them while waiting for Aliens Like Us and the next READ THIS! selection. Check out my Bookstore and Bibliography for all the things!
That's it for today, but, never fear, another Update, including the next READ THIS! selection, will be arriving in a couple of weeks!

In the meantime, stay safe and healthy, remember we're all in this together, be kind to one another, give love and support to all those who are on the front lines in any capacity, and let's be readers out there. Peace out, my li'l gangstas, and I'll catch all y'all on the flip side!

Love, Gini
