Sunday Synopsis: May 15, 2011

It's late ... very late! ... so this is going to be a very quick synopsis this week!  I didn't get a thing written on the blog this week, but I did feel that it was productive nonetheless.  Here is a quick overview of the week ...

Armchair BEA is quickly approaching, so I have been working on a number of projects for that!  I even got my interview swap assignment this weekend and have contacted my assigned blogger!  I am so excited for this event!  I even hope to have a post up this week with even more details about it and what is to come next week from it!

I have had quite the run of bookish events lately, with the latest being this week with Erik Larson ... only the author of my all-time favorite non-fiction book, The Devil in the White City.  He was a wonderful speaker, and his new book, In the Garden of Beasts sounds absolutely fascinating.  Can't wait to read it!

I'm debating some changes here on the blog with a slight curve in my focus.  As I sort through the details, I will post here once I make the decision.  Be watching for it!

Last, but not least, I am starting Clockwork Angel for Tales to Tomes Online Book Club tonight!  I am so excited for this read!  If you would like to join in, please do!  Click on over with the link above and it will give you the details of where you can join in the conversation!

Hope everyone has a great week and here's to actually getting some writing down this week here on the blog!


  1. Can you give us a hit of the new changes to come?
