In Other News…

Wow, okay, hi. It’s been a crazy month, but things finally slowed down enough for me to even think about writing one of these. So, here I am, and I hope everyone’s staying well and as entertained as possible.

What ate all my time? First, I launched my newsletter! And I’m super proud of myself because newsletters historically have scared me. So far, though, I’m actually kind of enjoying it and even looking forward to putting my next one together.

And to celebrate my epic newsletter-ness, I’m hosting a giveaway! I’m giving away a query letter or blurb edit (winner’s choice), and the link with details is above for any interested parties. Shares also appreciated. 😊

In general life, the boyfriend finally finished all the little things he wanted to add to the new truck. He feels about mechanical work the same way I did about newsletters, so we’ve spent a lot of time being proud of ourselves and each other lately. High-fives all around.

It’s been crazy hot here, which is equal parts nice and, well, hot. I am starting to have little pumpkin cravings, but I’m resolved not to act on them until the middle of September. Kind of like how I won’t play Christmas music until the day after Thanksgiving. The stores try to rush everything, and I want to enjoy what I’m doing while it’s happening while still looking forward to what comes next.

In books:

Lots of titles for review and work this month, but I did manage to squeeze in some pleasure reading.

I wanted to love the heck out of this, but I didn’t. The concept blew me away with its creativeness, but the book felt like it wasn’t sure what it wanted to be. As a result, I found the magic confusing, and I struggled with connecting to the characters.
OMG (yes, I typed that), I loved this so much! A cat who solves mysteries in ancient Egypt. You had me at hello, and these books are as adorable as the premise suggests. Perrr-fect for the mid-late elementary-school aged sleuth in your life.
What’s better than one cat-mystery in Egypt book? If you said two cat-mystery in Egypt books, you are right. Other appropriate answers are dark-chocolate covered almost-anything and dark chocolate hazelnut tea (which may be my birthday present to myself next month). Either way, dark chocolate is awesome, and so is this series. The third one’s already warming my e-reader, and I hope more show up for sale soon.


I watched the first episode of this on Amazon Prime while the boyfriend was working on the truck. Very cute and educational. I didn’t get into it as much as I could have, but deep down, 8-year-old me is rearranging the house to play out this show, hard. Kind of like the summer I reorganized my room to play a game based off the book The Egypt Game, but I digress.

Otherwise, still working through Monk and Murder, She Wrote with the occasional dally over to Third Rock from the Sun.

How’s things where you are? Watch or read anything great lately? Drop me a comment!

  1. Congrats on the newsletter! I’ve thought about starting one of those, but I don’t think I have the time or inspiration. I'm a lazy human. Have a great week!

  2. Well done on achieving a goal!
    Christmas is way too close now, I’m not ready for it!

    Wishing you a great reading week
